A Bookbinding for Your MacBook Pro or Your iPad? Why Not?

We have TwelveSouth.com to thank for book-style cases for both the MacBook Pro and iPad.

I have to admit that these products look really good, even though they are unimaginatively titled "BookBook." Eventually I may spring for one to cover my iPad.

Note that they tout these book-style cases as security devices for three reasons:

1. To protect your computer.

2. To conceal your computer. Since these "stealth" cases conceal the valuable electronics in dull, old book covers, owners reduce the risk of having their computers stolen. I guess that anyone who would steal a computer would never want to steal a book.

3. To protect your individuality by setting you off from the crowd.

The workmanship is top-grade, and the aesthetics pleasing (although I second your observation on the lazy naming). I've used a wallet-style case for my iPhone for almost three years and it's still holding up - and makes people think I'm reading from a real book.
