Last year we provided you guys with a little sneak preview of a carbon fiber laptop case we were working on with Mach 3 Composites. Well the time has finally come. After more than a year of development and testing, and two months late of its expected release date...we officially have the new carbon fiber laptop cases. Before I even begin to break it down for you, just take a look at this artful masterpiece of carbon fiber...
Now, let’s get down to business. First and foremost, these cases are 100% carbon fiber, with a high-gloss clear-coated finish. Being that they are made out of carbon fiber, it makes them very lightweight, but also extremely strong and durable...which can come in handy while lugging your laptop around. The case is currently available in four different sizes (an iPad-specific sized case is in the works) in order to make sure it fits most types of laptops and netbooks. It doesn't matter if you have a MacBook, Dell, Alienware, Lenovo, ThinkPad, Sony VAIO, as long as you check its dimensions against the internal dimensions of our case, it will fit....just make sure and check the internal dimensions on our product page. Just for some assurance for you Mac folks, MacBook cases should all fit with no problems! In fact, you don't even need to put a laptop in there, use the case for documents, or whatever else you want to carry around. If you're like us, we would carry the case around empty if we had to, just so we can show off all that carbon fiber.
Developed by a pilot, the carbon fiber laptop case has been tested all over the world through airports and real world scenarios. Being that it was developed by a pilot, you'll understand that they are completely checkpoint friendly, and meet all TSA guidelines.
Aside from the outside of the case being completely carbon fiber, it also has matching black hardware, including spring loaded clips on the front. The outside of the case isn't the only good looking aspect, the interior is almost as impressive. The interior is completely padded in a diamond pattern stitched soft material...in fact, it's the same material that is used inside the cases of some of the worlds finest musical instruments. You can be assured that if it's good enough for a $10,000 violin, your $2,000 MacBook is well protected.
On top of everything, in case you want to protect the carbon fiber that is protecting your laptop, it comes in a black velvet-like bag with embroidered logo. We of course recommend showing off your carbon fiber.
One of the best parts about this case is the price. You may have seen carbon fiber briefcases that sell for thousands of dollars. We've very reasonably priced these under $300. In fact, they start at just $251.90. On top of that, we're running introductory pricing, and offering all of the cases for $100 off. The price goes up slightly depending on the size of the case your purchase, here is the breakdown based on today's introductory prices:
- 12" Case: $151.90
- 13" Case: $182.90
- 15" Case: $195.90
- 17" Case: $199.90
If you are a carbon fiber enthusiast, this will probably be one of the single coolest things you can carry around with you, and it's very reasonably priced considering the amount of carbon fiber used on each case. We've created a video which overview the cases and shows how it works, I recommend taking a look:
Especially at first, these are available in a very limited supply, but we hope to ramp up production as demand gets higher. If you're interested in learning more, or picking one up for yourself, head on over to the product page on our store.
