Here! Here! Three New Bags For Notebook Macs!

by , 9:00 AM EST, January 9th, 2001

JAM has introduced three new cases for Apple portables, just in time for the MACWORLD Expo in San Francisco. These new products are MacPack, MacCase for PowerBook and JAM-Pack. According to JAM:

MacPack is a backpack for the iBook. They come in two sizes, small and large, and both are available in all iBook flavors as well as JAM1s "stealth" security color theme.

They offer fully padded rear, bottom and top/side panels, and a padded pocket-divider that holds the iBook firmly in place, as well as secondary compartments.

MacCase for PowerBook is a handheld/shoulder case that features special fabrics that echo the PowerBook1s matte-stain finish. It was designed to minimize bulk while maximizing protection - fully padded, with interior and exterior pockets for accessories.

JAM-Pack is for either the iBook or PowerBook, offering triple functions of handheld, shoulder or backpack mode. It has places for almost everything, with rivet-reinforced high stress areas offer unparalleled strength.

The JamPack is available for US$99.95, the MacPack starting from US$74.95, and the MacCase for PowerBook is available for US$74.95.They will be on display at booth #4643 at MACWORLD Expo in San Francisco. You can find more information about them at JAMBAGS' Web site.

The Mac Observer Spin:

Those bags look great. We recommend that you see for yourself. Especially due to the difficulty in finding a bag that the oddly shaped iBook fits in, these are a welcome addition.
