“The 12 Days AFTER Christmas” Giveaway: Day 9 - Macenstein

“The 12 Days AFTER Christmas” Giveaway: Day 9

Thank you, we have a winner – this contest is now closed. Congratulations to faithful Macenstein reader Chuck!

On the Ninth Day After Christmas, Macenstein gave to you (or, more accurately, gave you a chance to win…) A Gadget Protection Bundle from Speck – Including not one but TWO 15-inch SeeThru cases for the MacBook Pro*, as well as a PixelSkin case for the iPhone 3G (colors will be random, but sure to give your gadget quite a colorful makeover!).

Speck MacBook Pro iPhone bundle

*Please note, this version of the SeeThru is for the previous gen MacBook Pro, the silver key model (not the new unibody model).

Sure, Macs don’t need protection from Viruses, their innards are rock solid. But their beautiful, scratchable exteriors are another matter entirely. That’s why you need Speck’s SeeThru hard case for your MacBook Pro. Not only does the SeeThru protect your laptop from scratches, dust, spills, bears and monsters and such, but it also adds a splash of color to your beautiful, yet decidedly gray, Mac. Likewise with iPhone and the PixelSkin. Apple may have decided you only need a black or white iPhone, but what if you wanted a yellow one? Or pink, or blue? Or, maybe you like the black or white, but you wish the iPhone felt more rubbery? Then the PixelSkin is the case for you!

To enter: Since both of these Speck cases are as much about giving your Apple gear a physical makeover as much as protecting it, tell us the one thing you would change physically about yourself if you could (if you think you’re perfect as you are, feel free to say that, but trust me, I’m pretty sure I could find something wrong with you). Winners will be picked randomly 7 days later and notified (kind of like in The Ring, only with less killing… we hope). Open to all readers world-wide. Good luck, and thanks for reading Macenstein! (Oh, and be sure to enter ALL our “12 Days AFTER Christmas” Giveaways!)
Please note: Comments may take a while to show up, please do not double-post. Thanks!

    Good lord, seems like most people that read macenstein either need glasses or to lose some weight. I’m going to eat some carrots and go for a run; after that I’ll stretch my back. Stupid exercise and yoga are the only thing that keeps it pain free. Happy New Year!
