Mission Impossible 4 case

If anyone saw the movie, what case was on the macbook air? Was it a custom job? It looked decent.

yeah it looked very similar, hm. I'm guessing it was a custom job for the movie.

iPhone & Macbook Air Case

The cool cases for the iPhone and MacBook Air are from ION. Hope this helps.

The one in the movie has a smooth surface. There is no smooth version on the site. Its not the does carbon shell.

The phones could be the stealth ranger but I dont recall seeing carbon fiber sides.

I think the Air in MI4 is the old one (pre-2010), isn't it?

Don't believe so. I am pretty sure the back-lit apple was visible through the MBA case.

Awesome movie, we had a blast watching it.

I just saw the movie the other day after reading this thread, so I paid extra attention to the Air and iPhones (although it was tough cuz the movie itself was so good).

As for the iPhones at the end of the movie, the cases looked similar to this one I bought from Verizon, though I couldn't tell if those had the kickstand. I don't believe they were carbon fiber cases.

I was thinking the same thing. Its definitely the older Air. I tried googling for the carbon fiber case, but I can't find anything close. The case in the movie was definitely more rugged than the ones I'm finding online.

Edit: Looks like the poster above is correct, it was in fact the ION Carbonshell case. Video clip. Product Link.

Yep, the Apple logo was visible through a circular opening.

Indeed it is the ION, the 1st gen. Odd they didn't carry the logo cutout through to the 2011's.
