There's something magical about the 1980s and Apple computers. The. The computers were lovably chunky.
Hop into the DeLorean of your mind and go back in time by inserting your iPad 2 into Thumbs Up World's Padintosh cover. It instantly transforms your svelte modern machine into a classic Macintosh, right down to the dingy off-whitish color.
Nitpickers may note that the 10-inch iPad offers one whole inch of extra screen space compared with the Macintosh 128K and Mac Classic.
There's also that issue of a color display, but that's OK. This is all about maintaining current technology while embracing the nostalgia and retro-cheesiness of Macs past.
The Padintosh is Smart Cover-compatible. You can prop it up to give the illusion of an old Mac from the right viewing angles.
The Padintosh officially launched at CES 2012, but should actually be available to buy this spring for an as-yet-unannounced price.
