Coming in four stylized patterns — dark and light Tartan, Cookie Camo brown, and Spexy Hexy purple — you can rock these any time of year and still look on trend. Since the cases are of the hard shell variety, you get an extra layer of protection along with Speck's signature soft-touch finish. The cases will hit the virtual shelves this October for $70, which is still soon enough to make a statement when you head back to school!
I'm totally entranced by Redmaloo's felt laptop cases — they're modern, tactile, come in gorgeous colors, and they are totally innovative. Instead of zipping, snapping, or trying to get your laptop through a fold, these felt cases unfold and un-velcro to a flat panel, which in turn becomes your workstation, mouse pad and all.
Plus, I think that once you got it down, Redmaloo's design would be a way more efficient way to get your computer through airport security — you just put the whole thing in the bin and un-velcro, then re-velcro post-security belt!
I can't help but get a bit of satisfaction and pleasure from personalizing my gadgets — especially with fun new decals and chic new cases. So when PartySugar gave me a glittery-gold sticker to put on the back of my cell phone (it was the first initial of my name), I absolutely loved it. The sticker has since worn off (call it overuse of the phone if you will), but I'm always on the look out for sparkly new accessories to jazz up my gadgets.
Aside from the usual blinged-out, cellphone cases at CES this year, I also came across (ahem . . . was blinded by) these crystal-covered laptop stickers. I can't say I'd want to go all out and slap one of these on my laptop, but I'm curious to know if any of you would?! What do you think? Too geeky or somewhat geek chic?
Whether it be with stickers, rhinestones, cases or sleeves, pimping your laptop is definitely one of the hottest geek chic trends. I prefer my basic white Apple, but if I do decide to kick it up a notch, I'll probably get a SKYN. SKYN's are not only stylish, but reusable and will keep your laptop surface nice and protected. They come in a variety of sizes to fit various laptop models and range in price from $35-$40. Maybe a bit expensive, but then again, you are giving your laptop a full makeover! Here are a few from the Eva Collection:
Bring a slice of summer right to your laptop with these vinyl schtickers by Kolobags!
Lapschtickers are great because they add color and style to your laptop while protecting the top from scratches. And if you get bored of a particular print, you can easily remove the current Lapschtick and switch it up...which I must say is far less risky than permanently tattooing your laptop.
One size fits all as you can trim to fit almost all laptops and the price is $20. Check out all the fun patterns below, which include: red blossom, pink gerber daisy, black skull, blue snappy stripes, black racy and green asterisk (shown here).
Now this is a laptop sleeve that definitely speaks my language! Yes, it may be a tad pricey $125, but it's designer, pink and oh so glamorous - all the makings of the perfect laptop carrier. This jacquard Juicy Couture laptop sleeve comes in a crystal pink fabric like the one shown here or in a neutral tan with the traditional Juicy crest. Each bag has a double zip top with cute charm pull tabs and tonal trim (either silver for the pink or gold for the tan sleeve).
If you're wondering where your other gadget goodies can go, each sleeve has a front slide pocket - perfect for a cell phone, some cards/cash a make-up mirror and of course gloss!
Go to Neiman Marcus to purchase and to check out the tan style. You can also check the dimensions to make sure it will fit your laptop.
