WaterField Designs (www.sfbags.com) has announced two new cases for transporting Apple’s 2108 Mac mini: a custom-fitted Mac mini SleeveCase ($59) and the Mac mini Travel Case ($179), a sleek, minimalist bag for carrying the Mac mini, keyboard, mouse or trackpad, and multiple cables — everything but the monitor.
The mini SleeveCase combines a rugged waxed canvas or nearly indestructible ballistic nylon outer shell with a high-grade neoprene interior that absorbs shock as it cradles the computer. A loop at one end lets users grip the Mac mini sleeve in order to easily remove the device. A grizzly, full-grain leather strip adorns the waxed canvas SleeveCase, and an animal-free black textile accents the ballistic computer sleeve.
The new Mac mini Travel Case (pictured) in waxed canvas or ballistic nylon with premium, full-grain leather accents is a slim folio that holds everything but the monitor. The TSA-friendly case opens like a book to reveal four soft, padded pockets — two on one side for the Mac mini and a Mouse or TrackPad and two on the facing side for the Apple Magic Keyboard and an HDMI or USB-C cable.
A quick-access, pleated pocket on the bag’s face is lined with gold, water-resistant lining making items inside easy to spot; the pocket includes three internal mesh pockets to organize multiple cords and accessories and closes with a waterproof zipper. Two small D-rings attach to a removable shoulder strap, and dual handles offer a briefcase-style carry option for the compact and lightweight Mac mini bag.
