The last time I was there Target had some really nice Laptop cases. Though they were probably generically sized and not necessarily exactly made for a macbook.

Yeah, I was at the Apple store a few weeks ago looking for a case for my Macbook. Again, I really liked the inCase one for $30, but they had every size EXCEPT the 13.3" version. Ugh. After hitting up a couple other stores, such as BestBuy, CircuitCity, Target, and Compusa, and then realizing they all carried only generic sizes, I went ahead and ordered the inCase from apple.com. It was backordered, and it just shipped out yesterday. I think I'll get it on Monday or Tuesday. When I do, I'll post some pics and impressions.

The only other case that got my attention was the Vyper from BooqBags, but after shipping it was around $70. Too much in my booq...er...book.

at my university computer store they have cases by tucano that are very nice but they are priced right at 50 bucks. Its nice because they come in assorted colors and offer great protection along with a handle that you can hide when not in use and a removable shoulder strap.
