So I know the point of a MBA is to keep it thin... but with my current amount and type of travel I would really like a case that is not compressible.

So what I am thinking is getting the aluminum case and then some foam to cut out places for the MBA, charger, airport express, etc...

Done right I think it could really look sweet. Any suggestions?



Black Aluminum Case

Type of foam cutout I was thinking.

Chrome.

Faster and killer in presentation mode on my 11" Air. It gives me the same amount of space as the 13" when browsing.

Plus, I use Android phones.
I think you replied to the wrong thread?

I hear ya... I have seen Radtech before. Just seems a little pricey.

I will reasearch Malpin more...

I just think it could look really badass and have never seen anyone do it.
