I'm thinking I'm going to want a sleeve/jacket/protector of some sort for my 15" mbp (new 2.5 ghz Penryn, 250gb) since I'm planning on using it as a desktop replacement in the home office and the den (i.e. the WoW room). Meaning I'm going to be carrying it around the house during the day. I have a bag for trips, but want something to protect it from bumping doors, corners, etc. (As a result of injuries sustained several years ago in a fire, I wear leg braces and, at the best of times, can be a tad clumsy so "just be careful" isn't an option I care to take with a $2500 machine. Also have some nerve damage in both hands which affects grip strength; should be ok with that, but is another potential area of concern.) The speck looks cool and good for ding/scratch protection, but no cushioning for shock absorption concerns me a bit. Also, being hard plastic, the grip might be more of an issue here. http://www.speckproducts.com/products/seethru/15-macbook-pro/25 The Crumpler School Hymn has the padding as well as the the thin pvc layer, but not certain about port access and cooling issues. http://www.smalldog.com/product/40962 The Shoreline cases look interesting, but again not certain about cooling. Also they're not designed specifically for the MBP so correct sizing might be an issue. Also a forum search turned up only one instance of their mention. http://www.shorelinecases.com/index.htm The Booq Vyper might also be a possibility. http://www.booqbags.com/s.nl/it.A/id.74/.f?sc=13&category=-113 I currently have a laptrap for my 12" pb, but it's too bulky for just 'around the house' use, though I've been VERY pleased with it otherwise. http://www.sjdesign.com/laptrap.html Thanks for any and all advice.
