Currently, the covers will fit either MacBook Pro or MacBook Air models (2013 or later), and can be picked up for around $35 - includes a bag of 100 1 x 1 bricks.

12-inch MacBook Gold

Apple unveiled its all-new 12" MacBook today and it comes complete with a 2304 x 1440 resolution Retina Display that consumes 30 percent less power than previous displays.
