Ever take a good look at your MacBook Air and say, "Man, this thing is just too thin and attractive?" Accessory maker Agent 18 would like you to cover up with its new MacBook Air Shield, lest all the unattractive laptops in the coffee shop become jealous.

We'll just say this isn't the kind of look we'd want to rock on our super fancy laptop, but Agent 18 does point out, "Unlike other MacBook Air cases, the MacBook Air Shield provides accessibility to all connectors and features an opening for the notebook's vents to prevent overheating." So your single USB connection will remain unhindered.

The shield itself fits around the edges of the lid and also cover most of the bottom of the case. Available in three colors--white, black, and pink--the polycarbonate MacBook Air Shield will run $49.95 and be available at Apple stores.
