WaterField Designs has unveiled a new carrying case for the recently debuted Mac Studio, allowing users to transport the desktop computer in a more protected fashion.

Although not technically a portable machine, the Mac Studio has a relatively small form factor compared to other desktops. WaterField has run with the Mac Studio's size for its latest Apple accessory.

The Mac Studio Shield Case is a sleek carrying solution that cushions the Mac in impact-resistant padding and a plush lining. On the exterior is leather and ballistic nylon, or waxed canvas in some variants.

On the bottom of the case is a layer of high-grade neoprene that provides additional protection when the case is set down. Other construction details include waterproof YKK zippers, a plush-lined front pocket for peripherals or accessories, a sturdy leather handle, and metal D-rings for an optional strap.

WaterField says that its Shield Case is meant for users transporting the Mac Studio from home to office, station to station, or office to field.

The WaterField Mac Studio Shield Case retails for $129 and is expected to ship April 8.

Apple's Mac Studio starts at $1,999 and provides more power than its more expensive Mac Pro counterpart — at least, until that device is refreshed. It's available to order now and officially launches on Friday, March 18.
