South Carolina-based accessory maker Twelve South has released a new version of its BookBook case, this time for the 15" MacBook Pro with Retina Display. The case matches those available for the iPad and iPhone, as well as existing ones for the 11" and 13" MacBook Air models. The 13" MacBook Pro with Retina fits into the existing case designed for the 13" MacBook Air.

Designed exclusively for MacBook Air and MacBook Pro with Retina display, BookBook is a totally unique case for the thinnest of MacBooks. Weighing as little as 13.5 ounces with an ultra-thin profile, this handmade, genuine leather case offers heavy duty protection. Two hardback covers, reinforced corners and a cushioned spine offer solid impact protection. The inside of the case is lined with a velvety soft, chocolate brown, padded interior for added protection.

BookBook cases for the 11" and 13" MacBook Air models and the 13" and 15" MacBook Pro with Retina Display are available for $80 from Twelve South's website.

Since the 15" rMBP vents heavily in the hinge area won't this case restrict the airflow and make it overheat? :confused::eek:

These types of cases for a laptop are not smart. You only want a 'sleeve' for transportation. You do not want a case around the laptop because it's going to greatly reduce airflow/cooling...bad bad idea.

If you want a sleeve, I'd get one of these...

My R-Type spews out a ton of heat from the back. This might work for people who only check their email or surf the web—but those people are best served by using an iPad anyway. If you try to fire up some creative software or anything else that kicks up that quad-core i7, you risk ruining your shiny new Mac. It's my opinion that these types of cases work best with iPads which don't utilize such advanced cooling systems.

As a side note, can you imagine a day when laptops won't require fans? That would be quite the breakthrough. Perhaps a future, low-power, super fast 16-core Arm solution? DO WANT.
