Tom Bihn has created the new Size 4X of their hard-shell Brain Cell and Monolith laptop cases specifically for the 15.4″ MacBook Pro. The MacBook Pro requires an entirely new size of protective case designed specifically around its dimensions, which include a very thin 1″ height.
The Brain Cell is a wonderful product which has saved one of my Powerbooks on countless occasions. “The Brain Cell (available in eight sizes, including Size 4X) and Monolith (available in five sizes, including Size 4X) laptop cases take laptop protection a step further. Cradled in 8mm thick soft foam padding, the laptop hangs suspended in a 4mm hard corrugated plastic insert that protects from the front, back, and bottom. The sides are protected by dense cross-linked closed-cell polyethylene foam. This offers the toughest protection you can get for your laptop in a case that is still light and minimalist. The Brain Cell will clip securely inside one of our messenger bags or briefcases, be carried on its own, or slip into your current bag. The Monolith is designed to clip inside our backpacks, slip inside your current backpack, or it can also can be carried on its own. The Brain Cell and Monolith are available in five colors: Black, Steel, Deep Blue, Crimson, and Wasabi.” Taken from the Tom Bihn release.
