[prMac.com] San Francisco, CA - WaterField Designs, an innovative leader in custom laptop sleeves and designer bags and cases for consumer electronics, announces a new, custom-fitted, protective SleeveCase for the 17-inch aluminum MacBook Pro. WaterField Designs manufactures in San Francisco enabling them to design and ship custom cases for new electronic devices lightning fast. The new size 17-3 SleeveCase is available now for pre-order from www.sfbags.com and will ship January 16, 2009. WaterField also offers a 17-inch MacBook Pro compatible Suede Jacket Sleeve, HardCase and Racer-X.
"To protect your investment, it is important to cushion your 17-inch MacBook Pro while in transit," explained owner, Gary Waterfield. "You'll want your case to fit snugly for optimal protection - the WaterField Designs case is an exact fit for the new 17-inch MBP dimensions and it's very protective. For scratch protection, our Suede Jacket Sleeve is a great option; it doubles as a screen-cleaner too"
The SleeveCase secures and protects the 17-inch aluminum MacBook Pro without zippers, allowing quick access to the laptop. It combines a nearly indestructible ballistic nylon outer shell with a high-grade, 6mm neoprene interior that absorbs shock as it cradles the computer. A loop at one end lets users hold the SleeveCase while easily removing the device. Travelers passing through airport security can leave the MacBook Pro protected in the TSA friendly sleeve while it makes its way through the x-ray apparatus, thereby minimizing loss or damage at security checkpoints.
When inserted into WaterField's VertiGo, Cargo or Cozmo bags, the SleeveCase protects the MacBook Pro from other bag contents and can remain inside the bag when the computer is removed. Alternatively, one can opt to add a strap to the sleeve and use it as stand-alone case.
