On our wishlist: optimus maximus keyboards for laptops. Yes, it’s expensive, but a lot of laptop aficionados wouldn’t mind paying extra money for the functions. Each key image can be customed, language layout can be switched, and secondary symbols appear automatically after you press the shift key.
My wife’s biggest complaint about men’s gadgets is that…they look like men’s gadgets. For her, performance needs to have the style factor, and chrome just won’t cut it. Then I found this list of best laptop bags for women. Yes, there’s the girly pink — even a few wit flowers on them — but there are also sleek, classic designs for execs. Some of them can be worn like a backpack, good for women on the go.
Eco warriors and green activists can now bring their crusade to another level — eco-friendly laptop bags. The Targus Topload EcoSmart bag is an environment safe bag — it has no PVCs, all of the metal accoutrement does not have any nickel components and the plastic used is recyclable. You don’t need to worry about durability, too. The Targus Grove Topload EcoSmart bag is very sturdy and can take the weight and heft of your laptop (up to 15.4 inch lappies) along with other accessories and peripherals.
At a time when being conscious about how we treat the Earth is becoming more and more important this bag is great statement that you’re not only laptop geek, you care about the environment, too.
Bringing my lappies with me can sometimes be a horrible experience. My trusty Acer’s laptop bag is quite bulky and heavy, which contributes to the total weight that I have to lug around with me. My ASUS EEE may be easier to carry in a bag but I hate that it just gets all jiggled up in my messenger bag or backpack because there are no internal restraints. There are also a lack of pockets for my other gadgets, like my Nokia E61i, my iPod, my Nintendo DS, as well as various documents and papers.
So it was with great excitement when I saw the Logitech KINETIX backpack. The ergonomic looking bag looks quite hip with its black and orange contrasting colors. It’s slightly curved back frame means that air will flow at the back, which effectively prevents the sweaty back stains that all backpack users experience. The great thing here is that the sturdy frame has many pockets and compartments that are easily accessible. The laptop compartment can fit up to a 15.4 inch notebook, which is quite awesome.
The Logitech KINETIX may be THE backpack to use for lappie users. I’ll definitely have this on my buy list this year.
