The 27â³ iMac is quite literally the largestÂ computer that Apple sells.
It weighs 9.54 kilogramsÂ (21Â pounds). This is a beast of a machine. You donât carry this around with you like you would a svelte Retina MacBook. YouÂ take it home from the Apple Store, drop it on your desk, and leave it alone, lest you hurt yourself.
All Killer, No Filler
Weâre bringing Momentum to New York: our newest event, showcasing only the best speakers and startups.
But one dude hasnât got this message. AliakseiÂ Malevich is the creator of the Lavolta Carry Case â a leather travel bag for the behemoth 27â³ iMac which looks a bit like the unholy lovechild of an Apple Store and a Louis Vuitton handbag.
The Lavolta CaseÂ snugly fits every generation of the 27â³ iMac, dating back to 2009âs Unibody model, as well as theÂ AppleÂ 27â³ Thunderbolt Display. It has compartments toÂ store the keyboard, mouse, and power supply, and weighs 800 grams (1.7 pounds), because your computer isnât heavy enough already.
According to Malevich, the idea behindÂ it came after he had to take his computer to an important business meeting, and couldnât find a suitable carry case. So, obviously he created his own, which he now sells on Amazon and Etsy for $79.99 and $69.99 respectively.
Etsy, as we allÂ know, is the home of some really great ideas.
On one hand, I want to applaud Malevichâs entrepreneurial spirit. Coming up with an idea, turning it into a real product, and bringing it to market is no easy feat. Â On the other hand, Iâm kinda perplexed by why anyone would want to drag around a 21 poundÂ computer anywhere.Â
