Dr. Bott, a manufacturer and distributor of Mac peripherals, is now shipping the iCase12 carry case for the 12-inch iBook. The US$299 iCase12 offers room for an iBook with 12-inch screen, the AC power adapter, a spare battery, and iPod, CDs, up to three CD jewel cases and more.
“We found a jet-black ABS case that complements the durable iBook in a very nice way while taking the worries out of rough transit and offering a tidy way to store thing,” said Eric Prentice, CEO of Dr. Bott LLC. “The interior is specially cut-out heat-resistant foam made to measure — it fits the iBook like a custom-tailored suit and protects the valuable content of the entire case.”
iCase12 features the patented LiftoMatic telescopic feet. These lift the iBook into working position right inside the case, with essential ports being directly accessible. Slide off the lid, press on the far corners of your iBook, and your mobile desk is ready, Prentice said.
“The LiftoMatic telescopic feet add a slight angle to the iBook that nicely compensates the typical downward slope of your knees in a sitting position, making for a level workspace,” he added. “Below the space for the iBook you find cutouts for essential accessories. A spare battery and the power supply have their tailored slots just like the iPod does.”
The slot for the power supply accommodates both the old UFO-style power supply and the new power brick in one convenient location. The cutouts for accessories are covered by a hard separator that protects the iBook from being scratched by accessories with a hard surface.
The $419 iCase12 Plus has all this, plus a carry strap and black side bag that provides room for papers and extra hardware. iCase 12’s Lift-O-matic feet and removable top allow for comfortable use of the iBook without removing it from the case.
“We have to admit that the success of TiCase, our high end case for the Titanium PowerBook surprised us,” Prentice said. “Soon after releasing TiCase the calls started coming in for a similar case for the iBook.”
