Product Information

  • Overview

    Just like MacBook, Twelve South's BookBook case is extra light and ultra-thin. This genuine leather design has rigid hardback covers with reinforced corners to protect MacBook from impacts, while its soft, chocolate brown, padded interior helps preserve the finish on your Mac.

    Beautifully versatile

    You can use BookBook like a traditional sleeve. Or you can secure your MacBook in place with the elastic corner bands, so you're free to use it without removing BookBook. This unique case also provides an additional level of security by disguising your MacBook as a vintage novel.

It zips up nicely and with the curved spine it fits comfortably in your hands as you carry it. Also, the inside is padded. And the best part is that people everywhere will turn their heads to see your awesome looking "book" but then come to realize it's your laptop. It's an attention grabber.

I walked into an Apple store with it and customers were coming over to me asking where I bought it! The leather is high quality and I love the fact that it looks like an old worn classic that has been read and re-read many times! The zipper is heavy-duty and I give this a full 5 star rating! I want one for my I-Pad now! Thank you Apple!!!!!

    So this is the most inconvenient cases ive ever used, looks wise the best out there but usability is flawed,

    here are the downs So this is the most inconvenient cases ive ever used, looks wise the best out there but usability is flawed,

    here are the downsides.

    1. when you put on your lap sitting on bed laptop immediately slips and I have to hold it with other hand.

    2 . And then the case makes the laptop bend and eventually you cant close the lid.

    3. the two elastic bands that hold the upper lid can obstruct your lid from closing as they bend sometimes.

    All in all I feel this is useless except for if you give looks a lot of importance. waste of my $80 !!! hope I can get it back although it may be too late now, but I needed this time to find how useless this product is.

    my advice, don't buy this !

Talk about completely missing the po Scott D. was proud of the attention he received whilst carrying his Mac inside this disguise. Talk about completely missing the point. This is somewhat akin to storing your priceless gems in a fake tennis ball container, and then flashing the tennis ball container all over town, whilst revealing its purpose and intent, with winks and elbow nudges to the ribs of the innocent. One might as well contract the PT Barnum Company to engage a show inside of one's fortified domicile.

    This is an extremely clever product, and Apple should not be responsible for the inherent stupidity of some of its customers. Some people are not intelligent enough to be worthy of ownership of Apple's clever and ingenious products.
