RadTech has announced the availability of
Portectorz for Apple’s MacBook and MacBook Pro laptops. Portectorz are silicone covers designed to fit the laptop’s open ports. Prices range from $19.95 to $23.95 depending on size.
Portectorz insert into the power, audio, video and data ports on Mac laptops — RadTech already makes them for iBooks and PowerBooks. The ports are protected using custom-molded silicone to protect them from contamination from foreign objects, debris and liquids. You simply insert the Portectorz when you want to cover the ports then remove it when you want access.
MacBook and MacBook Pros use a new type of power connector called MagSafe — it’s a magnetic lock that helps to keep the power cable in place. The new Portectorz feature MagSeal, an embedded magnetic insert that draws the silicone seal into place.
RadTech has announced plans to release a Portectorz to fit the 17-inch MacBook Pro soon.
