Handle-it, sleeves ship
Dr. Bott and Case-mate have unveiled the Handle-it (shown at right) custom handle for Apple's 13-inch MacBook, as well as 15- and 17-inch PowerBook G4 notebooks. Handle-it is designed to make carrying an Apple laptop easier, and doubles as a passive heat sink when using the device on any flat surface. Case-mate has also launched new limited edition Leather Sleevez, its protective covers for 15-inch MacBook Pros and 13-inch MacBooks crafted from Italian Pebblestone leather that surround an impact-resistant plastic shell. Handle-it is shipping for $50 for all Apple notebook models, while Limited edition Leather Sleevez are available in black for the MacBook Pro ($120) and MacBook ($100).
