    i was wondering, does the macbook fit in the 15" stm medium alley notebook case.

    yes, physically i know the macbook will fit in there, i guess i just want to know if the 15" is 'too' big for it. i have been trying to find the 13" version with no luck.

    i don't know about the 15", so I can't comment.

    but here is somewhere you can buy the small alley case from (though it's out of stock at the moment.. so you'd have to wait): JR.com

    until you put it in the cart...I'm getting an "expected in stock 8/28" notice in the cart.

    hinkbot, I have an stm case (the loft) for my Macbook. I'd recommend going with the smaller one, as it's a perfect fit. I think the medium will be too big.

    I think shipping Monday is close enough to be considered "in stock" heh :)

    Much thanks to you both! just ordered from radtech. hope to have it by next week!

    my only gripe with this macbook is that i haven't seen a 13" case at any apple store. i find it somewhat odd...

    I wouldn't count on it. I was surprised at how much bigger my MacBook is that my sister's iBook. Better check the specs of the bag to make sure.
    Congrats! I hope they get them in as expected. I bought my Loft case from Radtech, and I recommend both Radtech and stm fully. I love the stm case. Great looks and very functional.

    You could also bring your macbook to the store and test it out in person.

    The London one had some nice ones a couple of weeks ago. Brenthaven?
