These Style-heavy Bags Are a Nod to the Classic Brown Bags

MacBook Module Sleeve Lets You Carry Your Apple Essentials Without The Bulk

if you love working out of your local cafe, you will know the pros and cons. the pros are obvious; like free-loading on the cafe’s electricity for your laptop, quick access to your much needed caffeinated drinks and such. as for cons, it will be constant stares by other guests who can’t find a table, plus stares from the local manager who only wish he could kick you out, and somebody tripping over your large backpack. speaking of which, you have to admit space is a valuable thing in today’s cafe and the last thing you want is to have someone tripping over your bag’s straps and stuff. that will kind of highlight your presence to everyone (and a good reason for you to leave, which you don’t want to). the solution? the Cargo Works 15-inch MacBook Module Sleeve.

Booq Viper Courier Laptop Bag

traveling with a laptop is not as simple as just packing the laptop and go; it is more than that. along with the laptop, you have a host of ancillary items to go with it like the power adapter, mouse and mouse pad, and since you are traveling you probably have other essentials such as shades, smartphone and perhaps, a notebook/magazine or two. given a take-it-all bag, you probably would be over-bringing which is not a good thing because of the resulting heft and not to mention the hassle of security checks. this why sometime we need a bag like the Booq Viper Courier Laptop Bag. actually, it is not a bag per say, but more like a sleeve that can swallow up to a 15″ Macbook or equivalent PC laptop, and still have room for your iPad, notebook, mouse, magazines, pens and more – doing it all while still maintaining an ultra slim form factor.

Booq’s, the maker of premium bags for gadgets, new Viper Sleeve for MacBook Air is one sleeve that will addressed these issues. Continue reading Booq Viper Sleeve for MacBook Air

incase has rolled out yet another collaboration for its MacBook Pro sleeve and iPad 2 case. this time, it works with Parisian fashion A.P.C. to offer Apple users sleeve for their 15-inch MacBook Pro and Book Jacket for iPad 2. the collection uses the finest selvage denim from Japan, coupled with leather trim, thus offering an added fashion sense to your everyday gadget accessories. two versions are available: the plain denim models and the A.P.C.
