MacBooks and Techshell Covers

Francesca and I splurged – new MacBooks! This is our last capital expenditure prior to the baby’s arrival – Franny’s laptop (Sony P.O.S.) was dying its final death, and my Dell 700m, which was a trooper, was killing my hands (tiny keyboard) and eyes (tiny screen). The MacBooks fit the bill – beautiful machines. Franny’s has 2GB RAM, mine only has 1GB Cry. Small hard drives – we’ll need to upgrade in the near term (only 60GB… almost full already). We’re running OS X, no problems switching our lives (though we have the windows desktop left for special cases).

James the Rocketmonkey got us Techshell covers – they are very cool. Helps us figure out which laptop is which. Actually, he ordered us 1 Techshell, and they sent the wrong one, so we got to keep a free pink one. It worked out perfectly, and they were very good about it. When we were looking into these, we couldn’t find any good photographs of what they actually looked like – for some reason the website itself doesn’t have close-ups. So after setting up our new MacBooks and getting the covers on, we took some photos to share with the world :

Update: switching over to Flickr, until then photos unavailable :-(

    im planning on getting a macbook in september, so ive been doing research trying to find a cute case for my computer! i saw on mac.com that they had cases just like these, but made by SPECK…. but pretty much all the users that commented said that the cases actually scratched their computers, and one even said that their red case stained their white macbook! i was wondering if you could tell me whether your white laptop has been harmed at all with the pink case? i really want to get one! (ive always wanted a pink laptop) ;)

    hey chelsea – fun that you found the link. so far, my wife's computer is unstained from the case. it hasn't scratched it either to our knowledge, though the white macbook itself got a bit scratched from the normal wear and tear of life before we got the case for it.

    hope that helps – if you get one, enjoy!
