Later this month I’m going to do something that I haven’t done in a good five years. I’m going to buy a Mac. My last Mac and I were torn from each other quite some time ago, and I’ve been using PCs ever since. I’ve saved up my hard-earned cash and I’ll be picking up a shiny new iMac towards the end of the month. As a hardcore geek I’ve pondered the idea of taking it with me on various occasions, as there’s really not much to it. The only problem is that I haven’t seen a decent solution for safely transporting an iMac. That is until I saw the iMcruzer from Pelican.
This case is one of the toughest-looking that I’ve ever seen, and for good reason. If I’m going to drop that much money on a 24-inch iMac, I’m going to want it kept safe and sound. The case is touted as indestructible, and will hold even the largest iMac with keyboard and mouse. It has plenty of foam padding to prevent shock damage and is both watertight and airtight.
While it’s tempting to think that I could take my (soon-to-be) beloved iMac anywhere I go, the bulk of this is something of a turnoff. That’s really no fault of Pelican’s, as the iMac itself is quite large. You’re also going to have to pony up $495, which is a bit tough to swallow after paying the hefty price for the computer.
