Executive Overview

Those of us who regularly drink the Steve Jobs kool-aid have recently dropped $1799 on the new MacBook Air. And while the marketing value of pulling it out of an inter-office manilla envelope is cool, in reality that is not the best option for carrying around your treasured new laptop. The Orion Sleeve is Incipio's answer to Apple's ultra thin, ultra light notebook computer. Just as thin and just as sexy, the Incipio Orion Sleeve protects in style. The Orion sleeve is made of synthetic leather and ultra durable high density foam and is lined in luxurious soft micro suede . Weighing in at just under 7.5oz (215 grams) and 6mm thin, the Orion Sleeve offers excellent protection, elegant style and focuses on simplicity.

While it does offer protection from scratches, it does not offer much shock protection. It is a very snug-fitting case, so much so that pulling the Air in and out can be a bit tricky, although with time I am sure it will loosen up a bit. Available in 8 colors, you are sure to find one that suits your style. And stylish it is - I have to admit that this is a very classy looking cover for your new uber-thin Mac. The ORION Sleeve for the MacBook Air retails for $39.95.

dermaSHOTIncipio has also released a tight fitting anti-slip case for your iPod touch. The Incipio dermaSHOT silicone case is curved to the shape of the iPod so that you can access all the iPod's features. And there are plenty of colors to choose from - nine, to be exact. From the very hip Camo version, to the very bland Black, you can find a skin that reflects your personality.

The skin is made of high-density silicone, and has an anti-static coating that grips the device, not your clothes. The cut-outs give easy access to the controls, screen and all ports. The dermaSHOT does not come with any type of screen protector. dermaSHOT for iPod Touch retails for $12.99, and while skins such as this are nothing new, the dermaSHOT is considerably cheaper than many of the premium silicone skins currently on the market.
