    3. A delicate white rose sleeve case, so you'll never be too far from a pretty bouquet of flowers.

The plastic ends are well-rounded and feel good when you're manipulating the MacBook. And the plastic is completely adjusted to the unibody, so there aren’t any loose ends. It truly feels as if it is an extension of my MacBook.” — Ivan
