    I know the new MacBook is only a few days old but can we get a list going of accessories made specifically for the new MB? (Sleeves, Cases, Skins, 3rd party adapters, etc.) Links and reviews would be helpful also.

    I need a sleeve but don't know if the old 13" MacBook sleeves will fit the new one just right. Anyone know?

    i was just about to make a thread about this!! Yea like the OP said, when can we expect to see the hard cases, and alum. macbook specific accessories to come out.

    As for the macbook sleeve, i am willing to gaurantee 100% that they will fit because the screen size is the same but it is thinner, so thinner always fits into bigger, but it might not be as snug of a fit

    And since it's a little thinner, you'd have room for a firewire cabl...DOH!

    Sweet. What I'm gonna do is just take the MacBook with me to the Apple store tomorrow and test it out there before I buy. I took the MacBook with me to school today and when I put it in my backpack I had to wrap it with my sweater cause I didn't have a case. lol
