TUAW: New SurfacePad for Air offers “hands-on luxury”

Just last week we introduced our newest addition to the SurfacePad line, for the thinnest of MacBooks — the Air. Our latest SurfacePad is a gorgeous sliver of top-quality napa leather designed to complement your MacBook Air, and the reviews so far have been positively wonderful!

Here’s a peek from TUAW’s Steve Sande, who spent a few days test driving SurfacePad on his own Air.

Twelve South is maintaining its record of success with Apple-only accessories with a new twist on an existing product. The company has made soft leather pads for the area around the trackpad on a MacBook Pro for several years; now they’re shipping a MacBook Air-specific version of their venerable SurfacePad product.”

“I had an opportunity to try out the SurfacePad for Air on an 11″ MacBook Air recently. Twelve South’s innovative and classy packaging continues; the SurfacePad is boxed in a thin wedge designed to be hung from a wall display and features a small strip of the leather material on the outside to not only give potential buyers an idea of the color of the product, but the soft feel as well.”

The verdict?

“The SurfacePad is a simple product, but one that adds so much comfort for the MacBook Air user. If you spend a good portion of your day typing on a MacBook Air, indulge a little for the simple pleasure of the SurfacePad.”
