    Hi all,

    I know no one will actually have an MBA (not such a good acronym) for a few weeks, but I am curious if anyone is aware of any sleeves or cases for the MBA, so that it can be carried around in a backpack without any chance of getting scratched or marred. Booq makes some very nice sleeves for MacBooks and MBPs, but nothing on their site yet for MBAs.

    If you have any info about MBA sleeves/cases, please post it here!

    It would certainly work in the stealth dept...but then you might just get poor souls with normal manila envelops mugged at random instead

    Well, if putting iPods in socks (or even hollowed out Zunes) works as a theft deterrent (or a thief radar blocker), I'm sure a manila envelope would work as well. Who would ever suspect a manila envelope, anyway? As long as you don't write "TOP SECRET" on it...

    Same form factor as the MacBook. So I'd buy one of these.

    Yeah, I am hoping for some sort of thin but tough form-fitting case, just enough to keep scratches and light rain away from the MBA.
