I’ve seen these types of crystal clear plastic cases available for everything from iPods to phones to PSPs before, but this is definitely the first one I’ve seen made for an actual laptop. Of course given the fact that the Asus EEE is pretty much the smallest model on the market, it makes a bit more sense. Made from scratch resistant and shatterproof polycarbonate plastic (the same material used to make protective eyewear) the EEE Crystal Case will protect it from the bumps, scratches and dings of day-to-day use.
The case is completely clear and has cutouts for all of the EEE’s ports, buttons and controls. It even adds a latch to keep the laptop securely closed, which is something it lacks by default. (Though it’s never accidentally popped open for me.) There’s also a double hinge on the case which allows the screen on the EEE to be opened as wide as it’s designed to. It might be a tad overkill, but if you’re tired of using the included neoprene sleeve this will allow you to just slip the EEE in your bag without having to worry about it.
You can get it directly from Proporta for just $19.95.
