A cool way to carry laptop while shooting

I found this laptop case that allows you to free your hands while shooting your video.

I think this is the best solution for those whom want to record Direct-to-Disk, or use the laptop as a monitor:

What do you think?

Looks cool, but what about intake fans on the underside of the laptop? Or exhaust vents on the side/back of it? If the laptop can't breathe, it will shutdown and in rare cases, burn out. :(

How would you keep the 4 pin firewire cable attached while moving? Mine comes out with the laptop sitting on my desk. :(

It would be nice for 2 people with a long firewire cable if the above things could be fixed. Not so nice to carry a camera and a laptop on the same shoulders, you'd tip over after a while. ;)

You could use it with StreamPix3 and the Cineform codec to record from an HDTV camera directly on your laptop.

It doesn't say what Operating Systems are supported in the press release or the download page.

I have 'a quad core desktop' here as the page mentions, but it doesn't say Apple on the side of it. Would this work with that? I also have a 3.46GHz laptop, and this specifies 2.4GHz laptop for use. Same question for this machine. :)
