Even though this reads like spam, and the web page calls them MAC notebooks, the case isn't that bad looking.

If it's spam it isn't good spam, since the website is barely useable, and the better designs are all for the MBP 15".

boblebee.com gets my vote as the site that finally beats crumpler.com as the most useless, unnecessary and difficult to navigate. But it beats it by miles and miles.

I won't order from boblebee based on this alone. The site sucks and blows.

Actually, a portion of what I get paid for is web design, but I'm hardly the only person commenting on Huzzk, Boblbee--or Crumpler.

I would prefer a simple list of products stating which item fits which computer. Wouldn't you?

Please do let us know more about the huzzk sleeve, which eBay seller, how long it takes to get to you, how it feels/works, pictures, etc.

I just received my GT Huzzk yesterday..... very cool..... it not only fits in my new MBP... but also can fits in my old 15.4 Macbook too...... fits very well and the material is thick... feel very safe to cover my MBP.... the huzzk come with a free gift too.. is a pouch...
My onli concern is the huzzk abit heavy ..... but i think it is heavy due to the thick protection material.... but nevermind.. still looks cool.... ahahah......
I took some photos of it..... check it out.....!!!!!

Any of you guys/gals buy also????

I have just ordered one of these on ebay and I am anxiously looking forward to it. It is very hard to find much information about this on the intenet although there is the odd article or blog mention here and there. I wish the website offered a better selection of photos of the sleeves, it would really help. Thanks to the above poster who sumbitted a few pics. More would be great! Does anyoone know of any reviews on the net?

interesting stuff . . . .

spam verdict - imo, i don't think it's that bad to call this thread a spam thread since it really does pertain to macbooks. Also, people clicked on this thread looking for a new sleeve design and that's exactly what they got. It's guerilla marketing, but it got me interested.

Well there are a few that have nothing to say really other than what you find on the website and with no original pictures. However the one that is worth mentioning can be found at this link:

http://ahtak.blogspot.com/

You have to scroll some way down the page to find the sleeve mention. It seems this guy knows one of the people who work at Huzzk and managed to get a free sleeve. Nice pictures... and not just of the sleeve.
