My Favourite iPad Bag: the iPad Travel Express by Waterfield Designs

Posted by Jason Dunn in "Laptop Thoughts Accessories" @ 07:00 AM

This is a review video of the iPad Travel Express, made by Waterfield Designs in the USA. This is a well-designed, sturdy bag that's perfect for carrying your iPad (with or without the Smart Cover), the Apple Bluetooth keyboard, the iPad sync cable and AC adaptor, along with a few other small items (wallet, phone, MP3 player, etc.). It's not a low-cost bag - you're definitely paying for the quality of the materials and the fact that it's made in the USA - but it's one of the best bags of its type that I've used and I highly recommend it. The DecalGirl skin shown in the video can be purchased here. [Affiliate]

The Twelve South BookBook iPad Case: Clever and Cool

Posted by Jason Dunn in "Laptop Thoughts Accessories" @ 07:00 AM

This is my review of the Twelve South BookBook, a very creative and clever carrying case for the iPad and iPad 2. Ever wanted to carry your iPad in stealth mode, hiding the fact that you have an expensive tablet computer on you? Then this is the case for you. Available in two colours - Classic Black or Vibrant Red - this case is a leather-bound, hand-distressed, very novel way to protect and carry your iPad or iPad 2. The BookBook can be purchased via the Laptop Thoughts Amazon store for $69.99 USD.

Interested in the skin on the iPad 2? You can get it from DecalGirl [Affiliate].

Waterfield Design's iPad 2 Suede Jacket Reviewed

Posted by Jason Dunn in "Laptop Thoughts Accessories" @ 09:00 AM

To watch in full screen 1080p, please click on the video title and go over to YouTube.

This is my review of the Waterfield Design iPad 2 Suede Jacket. It's a simple product that works exceptionally well - if you're looking for a simple sleeve for your iPad 2, this is an affordable, effective product. The Ultrasuede is extremely soft and will protect your iPad from scratches and scuffs - but of course won't protect it from anything more than that. The pouch on the back is handy for carrying a few iPad accessories, and with prices starting at $19, it's an affordable option. If you're looking for a simple, lightweight way to protect your iPad v1 or iPad v2 - with or without a Smart Cover - I highly recommend the iPad 2 Suede Jacket.

The Skooba Design Laptop Slim Case Video Review

Posted by Jason Dunn in "Laptop Thoughts Accessories" @ 08:00 AM

This is my review of the Skooba Design Laptop Slim Case, a lightweight laptop and gadget carrying case. Skooba, formerly known as RoadWired, has been making impressive bags for years, and this is one of their slimmest (3.5 inches) and most light-weight (18 ounces) bags yet. It's perfect for day-to-day business outings and even short trips or a vacation where you want to travel light. It has over 12 different pockets, pouches, and storage zones but it becomes a little unwieldy if you cram them all full. This bag works best if you pack it light. Check out my review for all the details, but if you're short on time, here's the summary: two thumbs up. Buy it.

You can purchase the bag from $59.95, but watch the video for a special coupon code to save 20% off any order over $50.

Skooba Design Releases Designed by Women, For Women Line of Bags: The Harmony Collection

Posted by Jason Dunn in "Digital Home Hardware & Accessories" @ 07:32 PM

http://www.skoobadesign.com/shop-by...mony-collection

"Skooba Design has added a collection of products designed exclusively for women to its award-winning line of laptop bags and tech/travel accessories. The bags in the new HarmonyTM collection blend the look, fashion and quality of a high-end tote or handbag with the capacity and protection of a laptop bag. Skooba's Julie Zepke, who lead the Harmony project, says "Harmony was designed by women for women, to make sure that the bags reflect the way we really carry and use things." Zepke continues, "too many other laptop bags are just masculine, tech-centric designs slightly modified or decorated to be marketed to women. We took the reverse approach-designing beautiful handbags and then making them work with technology." Zepke says the Harmony name represents the ideal marriage of fashion and function."

I've tended to think of Skooba Design's bags are being basically unisex, but the new Harmony line is certainly more fashionable than anything Skooba has done before. Remember you can use the coupon code DIGIDEAL to save 20% off any order of $50 or more.
