27" iMac cover

hullo all,

I would like to buy a cover to slip over my 27" iMac to prevent my jackdaw from pecking it when i am not in the room. I had a quick search online and could find nothing suitable. does anyone have any ideas?

Interesting issue.
I was also not able to find any protective cases- just travel cases.
I would suggest you getting a blanket or sheet and just drape that over your iMac.

Put the jackdaw in a different room, or in a cage. Problem solved.

yep. It's pretty crazy. there might be alternatives tho. Personally, you really don't need a cover for your iMac. If it gets dusty or dirty just clean it, no big deal. But i guess if you have a bird in the same room flying around it will become a problem.

Is your iMac going to be on while covered or off?

Do you know how to sew? You could pick up some flexible vinyl at the fabric store and craft your own - sort of like an old vinyl typewriter cover.

If you can't sew - theres always the cut vinyl to size and tape it together (on the inside of course, so it doesn't look like crap) method.

Uh, make the lion or leopard your desktop wallpaper.

If that doesn't keep the bird away, keep the bird in another room.

lol I know, right? My mother MADE me something like that... and it's MUCH more cushy and protective than those flimsy single-layer things.

Then again, I guess not everyone is or knows a friendly seamstress.
