    Thumbs up Size 4 Brain Cell Rave

    Just got my new 15 Al PB, and as its my first Mac I am in awe of its beauty.

    Also, I am very happy with the protection that the Brain Cell provides it. I was amazed at how sturdy it was, it is a hard case with a soft feel. I certainly feel confident carrying my investment around with it. The front pocket also holds a lot more than I imagined, I can easily fit a power adapter, ethernet cord, and a few CDs without a problem. Overall, I thank you for a great product. Now, I am just waiting a few more weeks to pay this computer off so I can get an ID Bag as well.

    Thanks,
    Kyle Brown

    Yay! That's great.

    Out of curiousity, how snugly does the new Al PB fit in the Brain Cell?

    The day the new Powerbooks came out, we made a cardboard model right away to see if the new 15" PB would still fit in the Size 4 Brain Cell, and it did. But we haven't had an opportunity to try out the actual laptop in the case.

    It fits very snuggly, not too snug to cause the bag to bulge, but enough to know that it won't be going anywhere inside of the bag.

    Thanks!

    I posted a link to our threads on the News & Events page - hope you don't mind! We have been getting a ton of emails and phone calls from people asking if the AL Powerbook will fit in our current cases.

    Thank you! Great pictures! Do you mind if we use them other places on the Web site?

    The #1 question we get is still 'does the new AL Powerbook fit in the Size 4 Brain Cell?'

    Tom is thinking of getting a new laptop - either a 12" iBook or 12" Powerbook, though I'm pushing for the 15" Powerbook....it's just so cool.

    Yes, you are more than welcome to use them on the website. Nothing better than to show everyone how good the fit is.

    Tom should certainly get the 15" Powerbook it's awesome, but then again my girlfriend has a 12" iBook and it packs quite the punch.

    KB,

    Okay, your turn to check messages.

    There IS a setting under your user options to have an email sent to you whenever you get a new private message. I guess it's something that the administrator of these forums figured that out only today, huh?

    FYI, this thread has been posted on Powerbook Zone:
