Twelve South, Booq release new MacBook accessories

updated 04:40 pm EST, Thu December 17, 2009

SurfacePad, Mamba Shift

Booq and Twelve South have each launched new MacBook accessories: the Mamba Shift bag, and the SurfacePad keyboard cover. The Mamba Shift uses a ballistic nylon exterior with water-repellent coating, and interior ripstop lining. The notebook compartment holds 13- or 15-inch systems, with two removable padded inserts for extra protection. Primary and side compartments are meant to store books and accessories. On the exterior are side pockets, as well as elastic pop-out iPhone pockets integrated into the shoulder pads.

Twelve South's SurfacePad is a layer of leather that protects a keyboard deck from scratches and dirt, while leaving openings for the trackpad and keyboard proper. It fits both 13- and 15-inch MacBook Pros, and is available in either smooth or patterned styles. It is 0.7mm thick, and kept in place by an adhesive.

Both the Mamba Shift and the SurfacePad can be ordered online, with the former priced at $150, and the latter costing $40.
