WaterField Designs, a leading maker of custom-fitted
computer cases and bags, today introduced a new model of its Racer-X computer case product line that
is custom-sized for the recently released Apple 12-inch PowerBook notebook computer. This new
model joins the current Racer-X computer cases for the 17-inch PowerBook and 15-inch Titanium
PowerBook. WaterField now has a Racer-X model optimized for each Apple PowerBook model.
"I designed a different size of the Racer-X specifically for each PowerBook," said Gary Waterfield,
chief designer at WaterField Designs. "Each Racer-X is tailored precisely for each PowerBook size to
ensure maximum protection while maintaining a compact size and light weight. Judging from the
runaway success of our recently introduced Racer-X for the 17-inch PowerBook, we think we have a
winning formula with this newest Racer-X."
The 12-inch Racer-X computer case is 12.25 inches wide, 10 inches tall, and 4.5 inches deep. The case
features two zippered, interior compartments: one that encases and protects the PowerBook with layers
of plush neoprene, foam, and corrugated plastic; and another for documents and files that also has
pockets to keep accessories such as DVDs, spare batteries, and ac adaptors organized. It also has an
exterior pocket for magazines and files and another pocket that conveniently slips over most carry-on
luggage handles. Racer-X computer cases have an exterior lined with wear-resistant military grade
ballistic nylon and trimmed with Indium fabric that come in a choice of five colors. The cases can be
hand-carried with its slip-resistant mountain bike grip or carried on the shoulder with its comfortable,
removable shoulder strap. They are designed and manufactured to exacting standards in San Francisco
and come with a lifetime warranty for manufacturing defects.

WaterField Designs Ships New Case for New Apple iPod
WaterField Designs, a leading maker of
custom-fitted, computer cases and bags, today started shipping its new iPod Case that is
specifically designed for the recently released, new Apple iPod.
The new WaterField Designs iPod Case has a bottom-entry design for easy use with the
new iPod docking station. It also has a slit on the bottom to enable users to easily attach
a cable to the iPod's new bottom slot. And like the previous iPod case, the main controls
are not covered with plastic, which more easily allows the user to use the iPod's buttons
by touch and which will not accumulate debris that could lodge underneath the plastic.
All WaterField products come with a lifetime warranty for manufacturing defects.
"Apple really improved its already great iPod, and we've improved our popular iPod Case
as well," said Gary Waterfield, chief designer at WaterField Designs. "While others have
announced that they will sell a case for the new iPod in the future, WaterField Designs is
proud to be one of the first, if not THE first, to actually release to market an iPod case
designed specifically for the new iPod. It's one of the many benefits of designing and
manufacturing in the USA."
