Beautiful, but I'm a vegetarian. No meat/leather/yada-yada-yada for me!

and it is a little pricey.. it costs more than AppleCare!!

For $420, I'd want my powerbook case to come with an armed guard to make sure I don't get jumped.
Well, he doesn't need to be armed, he could know ninjitsu or something cool like that.
