Dr. Bott is offering an update to their TiCase that promises expanded storage and comfortable shoulder strap. The case has a brushed aluminum shell, two-inches of closed cell styrofoam, and a combination lock.
“TiCasePlus integrates virtually all user feedback we have received for the original TiCase in a new model improved in scope and usability,” Eric Prentice, CEO of Dr. Bott, said. “And, as a first for computer cases, we offer an upgrade from TiCase to TiCasePlus. This upgrade allows valued customers who already treasure their TiCase to take advantage of the results of their feedback and enhance their TiCase with all the new features.”
A detachable cover lets you use the TiBook while it’s in the case using special “Lift-o-Matic” rear pads. Lift off the lid, press gently on the rear corners of the PowerBook, and your laptop lifts into working position. The “Lift-o-Matic” telescopic feet raise the rear of the TiBook so that the natural decline of your knees is properly balanced and the TiBook comes to a level rest in desk height. As a side effect, Lift-o-Matic makes room for ample air circulation under the TiBook, according to of Dr. Bott. Plus, you can flip down the portable’s lid covering the ports and all are directly accessible, even while the Titanium PowerBook is in the TiCase and TiCase Plus.
TiCasePlus, which costs US$539, is based on the original $399 TiCase design. There’s also an improved separator that keeps accessories and TiBook apart inside the TiCase. The $297 upgrade kit contains everything you need to transform a TiCase into the new deluxe TiCasePlus within a matter of minutes and without any tools, Prenctic said.
The TiCasePlus and updater kit are due later this month.
