Palo Alto, CA (PRWEB) October 16, 2006 –
Speck today announced that it has invented a new accessories category for notebook computers, believed to be the first translucent hard shell design for computers in the market. SeeThru™ hard shells for the MacBook Pro™ 15-inch notebook start shipping today at http://www.speckproducts.com.
“We’re proud to be introducing a new category of goods in this booming computer accessories market,” said Tim Hickman, Speck’s Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “There’s so much demand for notebook protection that we wanted to put our own spirited interpretation on it. This new SeeThru hard shell enhances the elegant design of the notebook while helping to protect those thousand-dollar investments.”
SeeThru hard shells for MacBook and MacBook Pro are made of sturdy, polycarbonate plastic and come in clear and red colors. With the easy snap-on design, users can shield their notebook from scratches and bumps while enjoying access to all features including keyboard, drives and ports. Shells come complete with rubber feet to help prevent movement on slippery surfaces. The durable shell is the perfect add-on when transporting your notebook alone, in a sleeve, briefcase or luggage.
MacBook Pro 15-inch notebook shells are currently shipping to consumers and retail partners with an MSRP of $39.95. MacBook 13-inch notebook shells will be available in early November. Speck also announced that notebook computer sleeves in their award-winning Canvas Sport™ design will be available in November.
