Does it have to do with Star Wars? Legos? What's with that epicly awesome MacBook Pro case, anyway? Well, if we had to label Incase's slick perforated case somehow, we'd call it an industrial-grade hardshell for those who feel the need to inject their daily lives with a heavy dose of style and extra protection.

We've been fans of Incase's hardshell line, but when we laid eyes on their latest Perforated Collection, we instantly fell in love.

Calling it 'timeless' may be pushing it, but they certainly have a way of designing cases that snap perfectly with the lines of the already sexy Apple products, while keeping all the necessary designed features such as battery check, sleep light, lid closure, USB, power, and disc reader readily available.

If anything, it's far less obnoxious (apologies for the personal injection here) than tagging the living crap of your Apple MacBook with vinyl stickers and calling it 'art.' I personally enjoy a little more simplicity and less noise in life.

Other surprisingly awesome perks: 1) There's non-skid sliders on the bottom to keep it from flying off the dining room table, 2) even though it's hard plastic, it significantly dissipates heat for lap computing, and 3) it doesn't add that much more bulk to the computer. Oh, and did we mention it's beautiful?

Pros: Large cutouts allow for easy access to necessary features, dissipates heat, eye-catching, best in the industry build-quality.
Cons: Expensive, but worth it.
