    I really don't think they make a case like that, how would it fit, exactly?

    I'm guessing you don't mean one that stays in the case while you use it? I'm sure that would cause overheating issues.

    Yes, there are some great leather cases for the MBP. I have the Tuff Luv leather case for my 2010 13". It stays on all the time. You can find it at the Tuff Luv website. Nice quality leather. Holes for air circulation. I have modified mine with elastic screen straps. It's a great case. No over heating issues at all and it takes the edge off the front of the machine, which I appreciate. There are also some nice italian leather cases that come up on ebay. They are not cheap, but they look great. -Brian

    very nice case, how easy is it to get the macbook in and out? also i would be super happy if you can post some pictures of it with your mac

    And the leather doesnt smudge/damage the screen i hope (when its folded)

    If they could explain to me why does the bag cost the same as the whole notebook, it could be worth a try...
    :cool:

    they only make them for the macbook AIR! im looking for something very similar for the leather casing to stay on my pro at all times. i-nique looks good but at the same time really cheesy with the straps, maybe some elastic leather that slides on each side of the mac pro??

    I know what you mean. I used to have one of their products and it was fantastic. But the prices are pretty ridiculous, especially considering the relatively short lifespan of products that they're designed for.

    A case like that would turn your MBP into a furnace...

    I have absolutely no doubt that their products offer nearly unbeatable quality, however, I don't see them doing much more than a $50 sleeve in terms of protecting the electronic device. :eek:
