    Waterfield Designs today introduced its new Mac Pro Go Case, a bag designed to transport the 2013 Mac Pro and necessary accessories. Created from padded ballistic nylon, the case is designed to fit snugly around Apple's newest desktop computer.

    The case cushions the Mac Pro with both internal padding and a plush liner, and there's a heavy duty plastic plate to protect the bottom of the computer. An accessories pocket able to hold add-ons like a mouse, cables, and power cord fits on top of the bag and a side pocket has room for an Apple wireless keyboard.

    At 7.5 inches in diameter and 12 to 14-inches tall, the Mac Pro Go Case can be carried using a nylon grab handle or a removable suspension shoulder strap.

    The Mac Pro Go Case, which comes in black to match the Mac Pro, can be ordered for $129 from SFBags.com.

    Sounds like a great target for thieves. Otherwise probably a great way to carry your Mac Pro around

    Id love a Mac Pro. Even though I have 0 need for it.

    Maybe the new Mac mini will look like a mini Mac Pro #……Or not.

    Has there been any news on a new Mac mini that I may have missed ?

    WOW, that case is awesome! I love how they have the keyboard on the side, and then they use the top of the Mac Pro for the mouse and other cables. Cool!

    Ballistic? Some explain how that is meaningful and not just a worthless buzz word.

    Looks like a pretty good case. I wonder how many people would have a use for it? Somebody who needs to move their computer, but has a screen at their destination. Could be good for hotels I suppose, but surely it would be better to take a laptop and not strain your neck looking at a screen up on the wall? Easier to slip a laptop into a suitcase too.

    If it's between two fixed destinations, I'd have thought it would be better to have two computers, even if one of them is cheaper, and just carry a memory stick, or use cloud storage.

    Finally I can bring my Mac Pro to Starbucks. Now I just need a carrying case for the two 27'' TB displays... ;)

    OK, so unless I am invading normandy beach, this is a buzz word.

    I have a Cube carrying bag.

    I've never used it.

    Pretty much. I've had "ballistic nylon" bags that fell apart in weeks, others that are ok after years.

    It's shaped to fit you?

    You've clearly never used a Waterfield product.

    This will be an excellent addition for the next time I go backpacking in the Andes. I just hope they make a version with a water bottle holder.

    The kind of "thing" you buy and use it once and that's it. The rest is collecting dust in your closet or... as a nice beach bag.

    Hummm nice... I wonder if the bag could be used as a cooler bag to carry beers on ice at a BBQ?

    Where does the 29" monitor fit?

    Or do you just carry it to a friends?

    Or to your work?.

    Has anyone ever transported a Mac Pro through airport security? I wonder if this weird black cylinder that doesn't look like a 'computer' might raise some eybrows… I want to transport a Mac Pro during an international flight but I am unsure how smooth it would go…

    Second that.

    My Waterfield case has been excellent. They've given me top-notch customer service and support, too.

    This nMP case looks like a good design. If it turns out to not be, have confidence Waterfield will take care of its customers.

    This isn't the first time a Mac Pro needed to be transported.

    You or I may never need it... but somebody does :)

    This company is awesome. I'll bet it'll be a solid case. I've bought all of my cases from them for the past few years.

    Made in USA. Solid quality. Good customer service. They even customized a case for me because I wanted something removed.

    The Racer-X laptop bag was my biggest purchase, and I love it!

    Appears to be a real nice, well-thought-out product, and I'm sure it'll be the cats meow for some people, but realistically, how many of these do they hope to sell? Moreover, if they can find a way to quickly detach the Alu stand from iMacs, why not follow this with a carrying case specifically designed for those desktops? :rolleyes:

    Perhaps I'm way off on this one, but wouldn't the vast majority of Pro owners leave their expensive desktops safely at home or the office, connected to their expensive displays and servers, and travel instead with their rMBPs and flash- or portable drives?
