Sgazzetti writes – “I’ve never bought a carrying case for any of my laptops, but the new MacBook Pro is so sleek and lovely that I decided I would spring for a genu-wine store-bought case this time. A little research has deterred me, however. Word on the street is that the case-making sector hasn’t really caught up with the new Mac laptops’ dimensions yet and various vendors are claiming that old stock designed for iBooks and PowerBooks will accommodate the MacBook and MB Pro, with mixed reviews from users. If I’m going to shell out $30 or £20 for my new ‘Book’s case, I want it to fit like a tiny wetsuit, not blown-out rhino hide. So, pending the bringing to market of dedicated cases for the MBP, it’s back to my old cheap-ass DIY ways.”Link.

Recycled Rubber – It’s more fun to make a laptop bag from an old wetsuit than it is to buy a new one. MAKE 02 – Page 40.
