Stands, sleeves, bags, and more
We’ve got a little bit of everything in this week’s roundup.
The $150 CT3 Apex X2 17-inch Backpack is big—it holds laptops up to 17 inches in size—and rugged, with case compartments hinged by “military-grade nylon.” And it’s comfortable, featuring a padded back to reduce your fatigue.
The $6 Mini USB Flexible Fan is a fan that derives power from the USB port on your Mac. A simple idea, and a simple way to cool down.
The MacBook Stand is made of wood—oak or walnut—and comes in two sizes: The $120 version fits 13-inch laptops, while the $125 version fits 15-inch laptops. The idea? To look cool while providing ergonomic support.
The $40 MacBook Cork Keyboard is a “limited release product subject to the production of only 100 units that are to be sold and not reproduced again this season,” so you’d better act fast if you like the look and feel of a cork keyboard.
The $30 Bluetooth Numeric Keypad is different—the vast majority of Mac-compatible keypads we see are made of the same aluminum as MacBooks. This device, which works wirelessly with your computer, has a glossy black finish. It’s also slim, making it easy to carry anywhere.
The $50 SeeThru Macbook Case is “ a hardshell, form-fitting MacBook 12-inch case. Made of durable polycarbonate, this slim, sleek MacBook 12-inch case snaps onto your laptop in two pieces.” The downside? The company is currently out of stock.
The Grace line of laptop sleeves features “ample cushioning and plush, super soft lining” to protect your laptop, and splashes of color to complement your style. Protecting your MacBook never looked quite so good.
The $25 Marble MacBook Skin is made for all sorts of MacBooks at all sorts of sizes. The important thing to remember is that it looks like you’re carrying around a laptop made of the same material to make Greco-Roman statues depicting the gods. All you need is a Thunderbolt-enabled drive to feel a bit more like Zeus.
The $30 KRADL Air is “made from a solid block of aluminum alloy” that “saves valuable desktop space by standing your MacBook Air up vertically.” It’s compatible with 11- and 13-inch MacBook Airs.
