So now that you have bought your new mini laptop, how are you going to show it off to friends and relatives? You must be able to carry it around safely to show off the sexy glow of the hi-res screen and that sleek, shiny chassis. Below are some bags I have reviewed for carrying around your new purchase. It's a good starting point for those who are not sure what type of bag they want or what companies make high-quality bags for the mini laptop.
For those who are looking for a bag to carry just a few items along with their mini laptop, check out the Booq company. The Book Boa XS will hold up to a 12" mini, adapter, some cds and a few other items. This is not the bag for your avid student who will be lugging around tons of school textbooks as well as their mini laptop.
For students, check out Timbuk2. They make messenger bags for laptops that will carry both the mini laptop and textbooks plus. The Timbuk2 laptop messenger bag comes with a waterproof liner, heavy-duty stitching, padded laptop area that fits up to a 12" mini, a quick-adjust padded shoulder strap, internal organizer pockets,and a built-in key ring to protect yourself from yourself (don't you hate that moment when you realize you are locked out? Never again feel that feeling with your new key ring built in to your new mini carrying case!)
Those stylish folks will love the new Belkin 7" Quilted carrying case. This item is basically a laptop sleeve with a built-in shoulder strap so you can wear it on-the-go.
The Belkin Neoprene sleeve is for those who aren't looking for a new bag, but a way to adapt their non-laptop bag into a safe carrying environment for their new mini. This sleeve fits up to a 7" mini laptop and only costs $12.99! Your new mini will be protected from scratches, bumps and bruises while saving yourself some serious cash.
It is so important when choosing your carrying case for your mini laptop, to figure out what you are going to use it for day to day, and what features will make your life easier.
