While my TiPB rarely gets too warm to sit comfortably on my lap, it’s possible that, for some folks, the G4 may simply get a bit too toasty on the outside because the titanium is a better conductor of heat than the plastics used in previous PowerBooks. If so, the G4 Saver “sleeve” from
offers a nice, reasonably priced (US$58) accessory.
Not only does it offer scratch protection, heat shielding (for you), and an easy way for fast transport of a TiPB via its nylon handles, the product also looks good. It has a black exterior and blue inside lining. The only drawback I’ve found is that I can’t use the G4 Saver with my Tote & Lift (a $39.95 attachable handle for the TiPB) from
Cyber 3. Admittedly, there’s no reason to use both since they perform some of the same functions. However, the Tote & Lift doesn’t offer scratch protection.
Check out both and see which one best suits your particular needs. Both come highly recommended.
