    I was looking for a case, bag, sleeve for my 12" Powerbook,
    and I came across this on Ebay "Apple Retro 12" Powerbook laptop bag case"
    Now I think I could get away with when being Funky doing Art stuff.
    But my banking clients might think I'll look like a freak.
    WHAT DO YOU THINK PLAY OR PASS ?

    That's one of the ugliest bags I think I have ever seen - sorry. Not my cup of tea.

    Im not a physicist, but I think when you put the ibook/powerbook together with its antimatter version, it explodes. Just a word of warning.

    You have to have a physicist's sense of style to buy that bag :).

    Mohan's got it right -- it seems that Apple's order got mixed with Cross Colours (remember that stuff?) at the factory. Amazingly, it seems that Cross Colours brand clothing is still available for sale today, at least (apparently) in Japan.

    That's just what I was going to say! Some hideous vinyl creation from Walmart. Also, many may remember these, but back in the early eighties all of my little friends wore a pair of shoes that were almost these same colors. They were blue/red/yellow canvas with a white rubber toe-cap, or was that yellow? I forget, but they were equally as ugly as this thing. Its only saving grace is that old-school Apple logo.

    the seller didn't quite get his description on eBay correct. sure it's amazing - amazingly ugly.

    your banking clients wouldn't think you're a freak, they'd just wonder why you appeared to be an adult carrying around your laptop in a lunch bag.
