Posted in iPad accessories by Conner Flynn on July 7th, 2011

Is that a MacBook Air? Why no, it’s MIC’s new Aluminum Keyboard Buddy Case, which offers both a protective case and an almost full QWERTY keyboard for your iPad 2. When you close it, the Buddy Case’s magnets will even put your iPad to sleep.

It is powered by a rechargeable lithium-polymer battery and will cost you $50. It only holds your iPad at one angle though which is annoying.

Apple to sell $899 20-inch aluminum iMac to schools

Posted in Apple by Conner Flynn on April 13th, 2009

Apple releases the new iMac’s made of glass and aluminum along with other upgradesThis week Apple quietly announced plans to start selling aluminum 20-inch iMacs to qualified educational institutions for just $899. That means that qualified schools can pre-order an $899 20-inch iMac equipped with a 2.0 Ghz Intel Core 2 Duo, 1 GB of memory, 160 GB hard drive, 8x SuperDrive, and NVIDIA GeForce 9400M graphic card.

The new configuration is replacing the $899 Apple 17-inch iMac sold to those same institutions since 2006. It allows institutions hit hard by tax revenue declines to continue to factor Macs into their refined budgets.

Suissa Enlighten wood & aluminum PC

Suissa Enlighten wood & aluminum PC
The Enlighten PC from Suissa Computers has a bit of an odd design. It looks more like a great bit of art deco furniture or a retro speaker. We first told you about it here. It’s a custom wood, metal and glass case that has separated components that helps to boost cooling. It’s not just a crap computer inside either. You get a choice of Intel Quad core CPU or AMD X2 6400+ processors, with 4GB of RAM and 1TB of storage standard. You get a DVD burner and a choice of NVIDIA 8800GTX or ATI Radeon HD2900XT video cards.

Interestingly, the system is designed so that you don’t need many fans. It’s all about the engineering and where they placed the components, with the aluminum and air venting keeping it all cool. It’s a limited edition of only ten machines, so if you want one you better hurry up. No word on pricing. All I know is it looks damn cool and damn retro. That makes me want it.
