SeeThru MacBook cases
Micro Heaven has launched a new line of Speck SeeThru Hard cases for MacBook and MacBook Pro. Available in seven different colors, the new cases are made of translucent hard plastic and allow access to all buttons, ports, drives, and plug sockets. They are composed of a two piece snap-on design lets you open and close your MacBook without removing the shell. The bottom half of the shell must be removed to access the battery door, however. The cases also include ventilation slots, and Micro Heaven says the design allows for "thermal exchange out of the heat sinks and fans of the computer." Available in Black, Clear, Red, Pink, Orange, Green, Blue for the 13-inch MacBook and MacBook Pro 15/17-inch, the new cases are priced at £30 (about $60).
