    I've searched and couldn't find anything.

    I was curious if there's such a thing as snap on/off covers for the side USB, ethernet, firewire etc.

    I've never thought to cover these so I've never looked on the internet to see if anything exists. Are you in an extremely dusty environment? They do make some low powered hand held vacuums for computer key boards that you may use.

    Duct Tape. It works for just about anything including iPhones!:D

    I don't know if you're trying to funny or something, but duct tape is a bad idea since it leaves residue that's hard to remove. It also gets sticky when the computer gets hot.

    Doesn't Radtech make a product called "Portectors" (not a typo)?

    What's sad is you need emoticons to determine if a post is sarcastic or not.

    very nice find, I might just get one - when they get my model!
    and I guess you could consider a backpack a very dusty condition?

    Getting serious-I use a sleeve for my MBP whenever I travel and carry it in my backpack.

    I find it funny that they put pictures of the product on a 17" unibody and show them put on unibodys stacked but they dont sell them for any 17" or current model unibodies...

    Anybody used port covers?
    I ordered some of them on ebay, low price.
    I wonder if there are people here using port covers.
    Maybe useful or useless, depending on the surrounding conditions.

    Those ports do get dirty after a while. But I don't use port covers. However I should have had some for my phone - the headphone jack always collects lint from my pockets, and eventually it will be clogged.
