    Willow Design makes some excellent Macintosh cases. My original Mac 128K has sat for years in a tote bag designed for that formfactor, from the mid 80's. I carry my iBook around in a Willow case that fits the laptop perfectly. It's a sad thing to see them go.

    Let me post part of an e-mail I, as a customer, received from them just now:

    Now's the last chance to grab one of their excellent cases.

    Wow, bummer. I was very close to ordering a case from them back in October for my 12" PB.

    I hate to see small companies like that get put out of business, ecspcially when their products are probably ten times better than their large competitors. :(

    If I had the use for a laptop case, I'd probably buy one right now.

    The Web site also mentions the Elbonian labor rate: 22 to 30 cents per hour. Stores are being filled with cheap cases and bags that are priced at over $70 - Made in Elbonia, no lifetime warranty, and they feel like they're going to break during handling. It seems like few people want high-quality products anymore. Many of the Apple products are being made in Elbonia now, and that's really disappointing. :(
