New MacCase goes back in time

"Classic Case" matches original iBook clamshell design.


The original MacCase is back. Nine years after releasing its first case, which had an unusual rounded shape that matched the contours of the iBook, the company is reissuing the clamshell briefcase.

Owing its success to the "'anti-status quo' element within the Apple community," MacCase calls the new version the "Classic Case" and pretty much kept everything from the first design, though it adds some practical elements such as rubber corners and a mesh lining to help the laptop cool down. It comes in five colors that read like a menu from Jamba Juice, including tangerine, blueberry, and key lime. And to weed out any poseurs who might dare carry anything else inside, the case has a window strategically placed to display the Apple logo.
