No, It's a BookBook!

I recently installed StumbleUpon to my toolbar, a wonderful tool to feed my web-surfing addiction. Within 20 minutes of Stumbling I came across an awesome idea for my book-addicted self that made me wish I had a laptop instead of a big hunking desktop PC. It's called a BookBook! The BookBook is designed by Twelve South, a company that caters exclusively to Mac users (though I bet it could fit on a non-Mac laptop). Here is the description provided by the site:

"Hardback cover softens the blows.

Protecting your MacBook is a top priority and it’s job one for BookBook. Slip your Mac inside the velvety soft, padded interior. Zip it closed and your baby is nestled between two tough, rigid leather hardback covers for a solid level of impact absorbing protection. The rigid spine serves as crush protection for an additional line of defense. BookBook creates a hardback book structure that safeguards your MacBook like few other cases can. Far better than any floppy neoprene bag ever will. End of story.

The real story. No two are alike.
Each BookBook is brought to life with hand craftsmanship and distressing, ensuring no two are exactly alike. From dual zippers with leather pulls, that at first glance look like bookmarks, to the sturdy reinforced hardback covers, BookBook is a vintage work of art built to protect modern day Macs. Along with classic looks, BookBook was designed to use as a traditional sleeve or to work while connected via elastic corner clips. Those dual zippers give you the option to charge your MacBook while it safely stays inside BookBook. This case is designed with good looks and smart functionality, cover to cover.

BookBook is the perfect disguise.
One of the neatest features of BookBook is the stealthy security it delivers. No one will see your MacBook when it's tucked inside BookBook, even when it's right under their nose. Sitting on a coffee table, dorm room or desk, BookBook looks like a vintage piece of literature, not an expensive laptop. It’s a great disguise and a simple way to reduce the risk of your MacBook getting stolen."

So I'll be saving this for my wish-I-could-use-this pile.

Wouldn't you love one of these?
