Like the joyfully “heavy” people on TV talk-shows that proclaim they’re proud and “full of life”, you too can celebrate the slab-like heft of your old, fat MacBook Pro with the Blackbox case, a solid oak sleeve that laughs at the supermodel-skinny MacBook Air. The cases, made in Golden, Colorado, are hand crafted and, like the MacBook itself, hewn from chunks of the raw material.
Despite its chunkiness, the wooden case is actually pretty light, weighing in at just 1.5-pounds (which the product page says is the same as a bottle of beer – appropriate for something made in the same town as Coors). If my MacBook ever left the house these days (my iPad has pretty much relegated the laptop to the desktop) then I might be tempted. Right up until I saw the $130 price-tag, that is.
Available now, for 15 and 13-inch MacBook Pros.
