  • Ben_H posted a message in the forum topic Is there any Macbook accessories / protection you recommend?. on the PC board

    I would just recommend a sleeve to put it in for protection in your bag. That's all I use. I once had a Speck case but I found it added too much bulk. Keyboard covers and the like are overkill unless ...

    We need to get the audio from that Jeff Mixlr rant on this topic from last night. It was great. He explained why he hates the term quite clearly, and his argument was quite reasonable in my opinion.

    Orange Box. Bought digitally on Steam? It was 8 games at once on my first Christmas sale. I think it was STALKER, World of Goo, Braid, PvZ, and a few Total War games for me, all at the same time.
