I was looking for a case, bag, sleeve for my 12" Powerbook,
and I came across this on Ebay "Apple Retro 12" Powerbook laptop bag case"
Now I think I could get away with when being Funky doing Art stuff.
But my banking clients might think I'll look like a freak.
WHAT DO YOU THINK PLAY OR PASS ?

Im not a physicist, but I think when you put the ibook/powerbook together with its antimatter version, it explodes. Just a word of warning.

You have to have a physicist's sense of style to buy that bag :).

Mohan's got it right -- it seems that Apple's order got mixed with Cross Colours (remember that stuff?) at the factory. Amazingly, it seems that Cross Colours brand clothing is still available (http://www.slumproud.com/ladys/photo/cl016.jpg) for sale today, at least (apparently) in Japan (http://www.slumproud.com/ladys/index2.html).

That's just what I was going to say! Some hideous vinyl creation from Walmart. Also, many may remember these, but back in the early eighties all of my little friends wore a pair of shoes that were almost these same colors. They were blue/red/yellow canvas with a white rubber toe-cap, or was that yellow? I forget, but they were equally as ugly as this thing. Its only saving grace is that old-school Apple logo.

the seller didn't quite get his description on eBay correct. sure it's amazing - amazingly ugly.

your banking clients wouldn't think you're a freak, they'd just wonder why you appeared to be an adult carrying around your laptop in a lunch bag.
