    A family friend who has owned Apple computers for years (he is a professor of computer science) get me a big box of cables and old bits and pieces (mainly Apple / gadget related). One of the things that turned up was this Apple branded laptop briefcase. When I say Apple branded, it has the logo on it but there is no other information or text anywhere on it apart from a small R next to the logo. It won't fit my 15" Macbook Pro but would certainly fit the earlier iBooks, 12" Powerbook or newer 13" Macbooks. I had a quick look online and couldn't find anything like it on Google or eBay.

    Anyone ever seen one of these cases before?

    Did you find any launch codes inside?

    During the height of the Cold War between Microsoft and Apple, Steve Jobs was reportedly accompanied at all times by a aide carrying what was known as a "football", a specially outfitted Apple-branded briefcase that contained launch codes for Apple's arsenal of nuclear weapons, along with the "playbook" and misc. communications devices.

    you could try getting in touch with mike evangelist (google writers block live). He worked there as an executive, and would likely be able to verify if similar things were seen on Apple campus.

    This briefcase came bundled with the "Pismo", Powerbook G3 400 in Singapore. I used to hang around Apple retail shops and managed to coerce one retailer into selling me one without having to buy the Pismo. Here are some more photos:

    Here are pictures of the Apple tote bag that did come with the Mac Powerbook 1400 "Epic":

    Sorry, these are not for sale. Just part of the cherished items in my Apple collection.

    I used to have an Apple branded leather case to lug the Apple IIe I used at school home for the weekend. It got lost somewhere in the divorce...

    I saw one in the street in NY, and I almost attacked the guy for it, thinking that it had a prototype in it :) Hahahahh!
