Has anyone tried using Kensington's cases with the PowerBook G4? In particular, it would appear that the Kensington Simply Portable Two and Two Plus Leather are too narrow for the PB G4 (the G4 is 13.4" long while Kensington's website indicates that the internal compartment is just 13.0" long). However, since the protective part of cases is often flexible, I thought I would ask here.

Thoughts, anyone? I was comparing between the Simply Portable Two Plus Leather and the Targus Leather (model CLN5).....

cases for the PB at a retail store are a problem. i always recommend people go to the apple store and get one that is designed for the G4 Powerbook. heh sorry if thats not a good enough answer

Yeah but I have no interest in paying $150 for a Brenthaven Titanium 1 that is just made ouf of nylon....way way too much for a "form fitted" case that doesn't even have leather exterior.

TiCase

TiCase is probably the best case for the TiBook.
It's specially designed for the TiBook and it's got the LiftOMatic feature which will allows you work on the case itself and improving air circulation underneath the powerbook.

surprise: it's got SAMSONITE label on it, because it's manufactured by them (but designed by DrBott)

oh yeah, if you carry your Pbook with the TiCase it's a bit heavy but its really stylish and you will look like 007 ;)

For those of us in the professional world, looking like James Bond is definitely *not* a good thing.

cool case

very cool looking case but is something that looks like a target

i would rather still use one of those backpack looking laptop bags for travel but any briefcase or standard laptop type bag is ok for around the office
