Couple of weeks back I picked up an iBook sleeve from DFO (Direct Factory Outlets in Melb.).

Neoprene Oroton bag designed for 12" laptops:
- Velco secured flap covering main compartment
- Zippered main compartment
- Zippered accessory pocket on the back.

Only cost me $33 (cheaper that any STM sleeve I've seen).

Took some photos too, so you guys can all see what it looks like.

Melbourne DFO in Cheltenham (corner of Grange Rd & Centre Dandenong Rd)
http://www.dfo.com.au/

Store called "Aspect" - sells mostly clothes (Morrisey, Marcs, Ralph Lauren). Most of the stuff there is too expensive for my liking - but they had a table of bags & wallets. The laptop sleeve was $42 :blink: + 20% off because bags were on sale that day.

I went looking for a pair of shoes - ended up buying a great laptop bag.
It's been a few weeks now, and I still haven't bought shoes yet :lol:

Nice bag - do they sell them for PowerBooks?

Good pictures also - did you shoot them in a light tent?

If anyone still cares, I took the photos myself - no real special setup:
Images were originally 3.2MP, but reduced size because the shots weren't in focus.

- Photos were taken on my bedroom
- A3 sheet of paper sitting on an office swivel chair as a background
- Lightsource was just from a window
- Used Photoshop to remove background
- Shadows all added digitally

I'm a tricky bastard, no?
