Is it very wrong for me to desperately want this sleeve?

    Male, and I could be older than some of your dads.

    Yet...

    I can kind of see it in business meetings as an ice breaker. On the other hand they might think I'm mad.

    I don't know if you know this or not, but the whole reason this sleeve is for sale started on these message boards.

    The most I've ever gotten with mine is a weird stare (like at airport security), but other than that, people dig it.

    it's very wrong, but I say go for it!

    edit: As an excuse you can always say your daughter bought it for you.

    Love it... tho $65 is pricey.

    I'm imagining a Yeti style one with hidden eyes. Buy the Faux Fur, some lining, a bit of wadding and the googly eyes from John Lewis' haberdashery and get someone to give it a quick run round with a sewing machine...

    Seriously... it would be ridiculously easy to do and personalise to whatever variety of monster you needed.

    And I guess it depends how 'creative' you're supposed to be - if, as a consultant, you're supposed to think 'out the box', that's definitely out there. If you're an adminstrator putting companies into receivership, possibly not so good.

    I love it. :D

    Surely if you've just been sacked, you'll want cheering up - what better than a monster sleeve to do just that?

    Man that's stupid of me, I never thought to look for it here. I saw it on a gadget weblog and I was overcome by must-haveness.

    There is so much on that site I want, but... jeez, I'm not a teenager anymore. I think I'll go for the sleeve. At least in 17" size it'll be a manly monster.

    Yes it's SO wrong!

    My MacBook gets hotter than hell, and id prefer it to get a chance to cool down quickly when put away, not to be placed in this heat retaining pizza delivery bag!

    I've had my macbook in one of these for the past few months. I have had no damage done to my computer in any way whatsoever.

    Actually I've had this case since march or april and before i had the macbook i had a titanium powerbook g4, which got really hot when it was used.

    This case dissipates the heat as well as the one i had before (http://www.booqbags.com/Detail.bok?no=431).

    I'm not sure if any case lets a laptop cool down quickly, as neoprene and most padding insulates heat. And surely if the computer's running ok when on, the heat when it's off won't be an issue.

    If you want to be pedantic it would depend on how soon after switching it off / sleeping you put it in the case and how much heat the case insulates, as when the Mac is off, residual heat won't be moved away by the built-in cooling mechanism. Since the system is no longer producing heat this is not usually an issue but if high levels of heat is retained for long periods without cooling or heat dissipation it can damage the computer or the batteries.

    I doubt it's an issue on any bag but I love pedantry.

    But it won't get any hotter than it were while running, so it shouldn't matter.

    As I said that depends. The computer is usually being actively cooled. On powering it off, while the component temps will fall as they're no longer receiving power they also lose active cooling.

    Yeah, but nothing is ever cooled to below room temperature, so when the components lose active cooling and also loses active heating (power), they'll slowly cool down no matter what.

    Someone posted these on digg...it's still in the upcoming section, but it's towards the top of it's category. I've never really used digg before. How does digg work? Is there a specific amount of diggs I need to hit to go to the popular stories section?
