    Am I imagining this?

    I'm sure I saw an Ad somewhere at MR for a company that make a quite expensive but really nice looking Macbook shell - one in carbon and one that looked iridescent.

    But I can't for the life of me find it!

    Does anyone know what I'm talking about.

    Well - I've had it for what, 3 months?

    Guess what?

    It's falling apart.

    Front left edge, the 'leather' has worn straight through and is flapping around. The stitching on the lid half is poor and coming undone and you can't use a normal network cable with it.

    Other than that - well worth the $90. :rolleyes:

    The iridescent one looks AWESOME! So not worth $129 though. haha. Well, I like the effect-- I hate the little bubble over the apple. ><
