    Not much of a review. There was not really good information besides telling us what it can do. Sounds more like an ad then anything.

    This reminds me of the Ti-handle for the Ti-books, the Ti Tote & Tilt, that worked and looked so much better tho'. Since there aren't screws on the hinge, the screws on the bottom of the computer are the next best thing.

    a built in handle on the 17 inch wouldnt be a bad idea but i dont know how it would be done cleanly...definitely not with an aftermarket piece

    I think I'll market a couple of clasps like these that instead of the hoop have a screw fixing striaght into where the rubber feet are on the 13" Macbook. You could then clip the clasps striaght on to nipple rings and carry your laptop hands-free. Use the front feet positions so you can have the screen open and viewable, ideal for long flights where you want that tray space for plastic food containers.

    I'l market a version for the iPod nano too, called the iAlbert:eek:

    I don't think it looks that bad. but it leaves the pristine finish of your lid open for dents and dings.

    I was thinking the same thing. Nothing critcal about it. Doesn't mention how permanent attaching the thing it. And I've never wanted or needed a handle on a notebook. I have an iLap for using my MacBook on my lap, but it stays at home.

    You're going to carry your Mac by your WHAT? :eek: :eek: :eek: :D

    I do remember that, AGES ago, I had a Compaq laptop with a Pentium I / 150MHz, which had feet that popped out of the back like on cheap Windows keyboards (but with slightly more class), as well as an attachable handle. I loved the former but never really had a use for the latter.

    I dunno. This one is pretty freaky-deaky. I'm almost thinking that, were you mugged, you could also heft your MBP as a fairly convincing weapon. :eek: :( But it's funny to me that something noted for its use of fine materials would be so aesthetically displeasing....

    Could be useful, but it's a shame they chose leather, and it looks like it might stick out some full-time--annoying in your bag.

    (I can't help noticing that products which tilt your keyboard away from you claim to reduce carpal tunnel... and so do products which make a flat-laptop-style keyboard... and so do products that tilt it TOWARD you! I THINK the truth is that towards you--the norm--is worst, away is best, and flat is in the middle. And split/curved helps too.)
