MacVelope for MacBook Air
Grantwood Technology has introduced the MacVelope, a notebook sleeve designed for the MacBook Air, and the MacVelope Companion Bag. The sleeve is designed to look like a standard manila colored mail envelope, similar to what Steve Jobs used for demonstration at the 2008 Macworld Expo. A red string has even been added to replicate the look of a document envelope, and it opens in a similar way but with Velcro across the inside of the folding flap. The MacBook is protected by vinyl on the outside and ballistic nylon lining the interior.
The MacVelope can be placed inside the Companion Bag, which offers extra space for holding an external drive, power adapter, or cables. Three zippered enclosures are provided, and a shoulder strap for longer hauls. The MacVelope is available now for $25, while the Companion Bag can be obtained for $30, or both purchased together for $50.
