Protect Your Tiny Laptop With A Waterfield Custom Sleeve
June 18, 2008
Ever since the ASUS eeepc debuted last year people have gone crazy for this cute little laptop. Less expensive than the tricked out Sony Vaio UX and less toy-looking than the XO/One Laptop Per Child machine, the eeepc is definitely the top choice for people looking for an extra portable work machine.
And of course the next step after acquiring a new bit of technology is to figure out what stylish accessory you're going to carry it in.
The eeepc is pretty durable, but I don't feel comfortable letting it rattle around in my bag without protection. You won't find too many pre-made laptop sleeves that are small enough, but Waterfield Designs makes custom sleeves that fits the unit perfectly (size 18-13). Slip it on and drop the eeepc in your purse (or this cute Sling bag, also from Waterfield) without worry. Even with the sleeve it's so light you'll hardly notice it in there.
And because Waterfield's sleeve cases are made to order, you can get one for all the tiny (and regular-sized) laptops out there, customize colors, and add extras, like a flap. eeepc sleeves start at $38. The Sling starts at $99.
