This is the one that I bought http://www.radtech.us/Products/NeoCase.aspx

I love it, but sometimes I take it out of the case if I am going to be using it in one place for a long time so that I show off it's beauty.

Here's some photos of my MacBook in it.


And here is a shot displaying the open access to the ports.

I have an Incase carrying bag, similiar to the incase sleeve. It just slips in, but it also has pockets on the outside(on a few on the inside). Plus handle to carry, and a shoulder strap.

I use Speck's see thru case and have been very happy with it so far. Doesn't add much bulk at all and hardly any more weight.

My baby with it:

Timbuk2's Laptop Grip Sleeve http://www.timbuk2.com/tb2/retail/ca...85&skusetId=46
There's a lot of padding so your laptop is really protected.

Great recommendations. I found this one: Tucano Second Skin Microfiber Folder Grey. Killer touch is that it has a keyboard protector which also doubles up as a very good screen cleaner! What do you all think? Anybody has this?

I am very interested in the speck case. Could you please take a bunch more photos from different angles so I can see what the macbook looks like in it? It would be much appreciated.

I just picked up the Spek's See-Thru case as well. I have the same type of casing for my iPOD so I decided to try it out for my MacBook as well. I'm loving it so far! It doesn't much bulk at all. It was very easy to install. I also ordered the total body skin from BestSkinsEver.com.

For carrying the MacBook around, I'm using the STM Alley shoulder bag. It doesn't scream, "I have a MacBook in here" kinda bag.

Hope this helps!

StevenH,

When I bought my MacBook, I bought a Marware Sportfolio case. Here's a link: http://www.marware.com/cgi-bin/WebOb...n95f3jiyErYQo0

Good luck in your search. I've seen a few here I even like!
