Blackbox gives MacBook Pro users wood

If you spend your hard earned money on a new 13″ or 15″ MacBook Pro you will undoubtedly want to keep the thing safe from scratches and drops with protection of some sort in transit. A company called Blackbox Case has a cool case made from wood that can be had in sizes for the MacBook Pro in 13″ and 15″ forms.

The case for either size is made from real wood that is solid oak and then stained in natural or brown colors. Either of the cases will cost you $129 and they will only fit the new unibody MacBook Pro machines. Users of the older rigs will need to shop elsewhere.

The cases are very strong and can support up to 60 pounds on top without crushing your notebook. They each weigh 1.5 pounds. Each of the cases is handmade and they have a leather strap that keeps the notebook from sliding out. Those straps are hand numbered.
