The ultimate protection from laptop thieves

The idea of hiding valuable technology inside something people don’t want is nothing new. Remember the iPod hidden inside a Zune thing? But this is pure genius. Behold the BookBook, a padded MacBook Pro case made from genuine hardcover, hand distressed books.

It’s a well known fact that the only thing thieves value less than books are OLD books, so this is really a pretty ingenious way to hide your MacBook. That is, assuming you don’t run into these guys in a dark alley.
