Ingenious and slightly ironic at the same time, the BookBook ($80) is a new case for the MacBook and MacBook pro that disguises your 'Book as, well, a book. Employing thick hardcover front and rear panels and a rigid spine, the BookBook provides ample protection for your laptop, while elastic corner clips let you use the computer while it's encased, and dual zippers let you charge the device while closed. Best of all, the hand craftsmanship and distressing ensure your BookBook will be unique to you, further reducing the fact that passerby will notice that it's not simply an aging hardbound tome.
