    hard case or sleeve for ibook
    Hi, I'm looking for a compact rigid case for a 12" ibook to protect it when put in a backpack. I'm not bothered
    about extra room for accessories/papers etc, just a tough hard shell to protect the ibook from being accidentally
    crushed and banged, but not too big it can't be slipped in a bag.

    Something like the cases Proporta make for handhelds, only bigger of course! Example here:
    www.proporta.com/detail.asp?id=211

    Thanks!

    They make a pretty nice ibook sleeve. Fits like a glove!

    I'd also suggest that you purchase some sort of screen protector (many are made of leather or suede-like material) to place between the keyboard and LCD when transporting your iBook. Many people experiance scratching of the LCD, and I'd imagine there would be increased risk of that if you are transporting it in a backpack.

    Thanks everyone who replied, but I'm after something rugged and hard-sided that would resist
    being crushed or bent, and a normal laptop sleeve wouldn't work.

    trpnmonkey41, the Marware Sportfolio II ( www.marware.com/SportFolio_II.html ) is the perfect
    size, but it doesn't say how strong the plastic shell inside is. Could you stand on it without
    squashing your ibook? That's the kind of strength I'm after.

    Pelican make a #1470 small computer case ( www.peli.com/cases.html ) that is strong
    enough, but it's too big (full-sized notebook case size). If they made something
    sleeve-sized it would be ideal, but alas.

    It seems they're either strong but too big, or the right size but too soft! :rolleyes:

    Thanks Padawan for the tip about screen protectors though

    I hate to advertise for this company, as i ordered my case almost a month ago and still haven't got it, but shinza.com has a case call the Zero Shock, its made out of polyurithane (probably spelled that wrong), but its an awesome case, its hard to objects that touch it instantly and soft to items that have continued contact, ie: ibook. it works really really well, and as soon as i get my non defective one (stupid zipper) it should be really good.

    Peace
    Rob.
