When Phoronix spends a day in the snow sledding on the Otterbox 7030, and the ThinkPad R52 that was inside it, and the thing still works in the evening, you know they've got a good product.  Head on over to watch the videos of this protective case in action, and some of you can marvel at the ground being covered in the white stuff.

Anyone into electronic pr0n should drop what they are doing and head to [H]ard|OCP where they can see shots of naked Air.  The first thing that you might notice is just how much work it takes to get one apart, even for something as simple as a battery change.  Then again, MacBook's aren't really designed with user serviceability as the top priority.
