The BookBook for the MacBook Air—like the MacBook version before it—is a beautiful leather-bound, hand-distressed hardcover case for your laptop. You'll feel like you're carrying a book again.

The MacBook Air BookBook has a 'rounded spine', which really means that damn computer is so thin they had to make a super small version just for it. The case comes in brown and has a padded spine cushion, plushy interior, and straps to lock in the corners. I could care less about the protection, this thing is a damn beaut. Comes in 11-inch and 13-inch sizes. $80 [TwelveSouth]

It looks gorgeous. But they advertise the 11 inch Air case as weighing 13.5 ounces (at least, I presume it's the 11 inch Air since the site reads "weighing as little as 13.5 ounces"). Which means I'd probably be adding a full pound to my 13 inch Air. Given that I paid a premium specifically to get something lighter...I'll pass on this. I'd much rather buy the 13 inch Macbook Pro and get a really lightweight case if I'm going to carry around a heavier set of stuff.
