New case designed for transporting flat panel display
By Dennis Sellers
They offer iBook bags for the consumer portable and Darwin backpacks for PowerBooks. They let you “bag” and transport your iMac and Cube. Now the folks at
have produced the NL-28, a carrying case for Apple’s 15-inch, flat panel Studio Display.
“The design of the display case was a natural follow up to the release of the Apple Cube case, especially given the requests we received,” said Nigel Peck of Willow Design. “We’ve put so much energy into laptop backpacks and briefcase style cases, it has been fun to figure out solutions for less common Apple user needs like the iMac, Cube and now the Flat Panel Display.”
The flat panel case features compartmentalized protection for the display, cable and separate accessory compartments. All components are protected by internal, adjustable plastic dividers. Carrying comfort is assured by a thickly padded briefcase style handle and a padded contoured shoulder carry strap, Peck said.
Willow Design’s NL-28 15″ Apple Flat Panel Case retails for about US$116, with another $12 or so tacked on for shipping and handling. (Willow Design is based in British Columbia, so the exchange rate may vary the price if you’re outside of Canada.) For more details, visit Willow Design’s Web site.
Apple’s 15-inch flat panel recently saw a price cut from US $999 to $799. Also, for more info on Willow products see our
