MacBook Pro sleeve case
WaterField Designs has announced it will be shipping a sleeve designed specifically for Apple's newly-introduced 17-inch MacBook Pro. The MacBook Pro SleeveCase is a slim, durable covering made of a sturdy ballistic nylon shell and a high-grade neoprene interior that envelopes itself around the MacBook Pro for a snug fit. It can be used as a stand-alone case, or can be inserted into briefcases, messenger bags, or backpacks. Customers have the option of personalizing their MacBook Pro SleeveCase to match their own needs. The WaterField SleeveCase comes in either a vertical or horizontal orientation, and customers can create their own style by choosing to add either a front flap for added protection, or a strap for carrying the SleeveCase by itself when not inserted into another bag. A detachable gear holder, the Piggyback, is also offered, which carries accessories like a power adapter, a mouse, or an AirPort Express. Pricing starts at $40 and it is expected to ship on May 3rd.
