This week’s roundup includes several bags that make it difficult for thieves to make off with your MacBook. Read on!
The Anti-Theft Laptop Backpack ($84.60 MSRP; $40 on Amazon) can be used for laptops up to 14 inches. Its main zipper is hard to find—unless you, the owner, who will know where it is already—making it difficult for pick-pockets to snatch hardware from the bag. It’s made of nylon, and comes in five different colors.
The SecureTrek 15-inch Laptop Carrying Case ($100 MSRP; $82 on Amazon) includes a SecureTrek Lock Base that lets you click in the hammerhead zipper to deter thefts; you can also use one of Kensington’s portable laptop locks to secure the bag to a fixed object. Either way, this bag will make it tough to take your stuff.
The Leather Hard Cover Case for MacBook ($66.79 MSRP, on sale for $60.72) offers protection and style—it comes in five different colors—and it’s functional, too, featuring a heat-releasing design that will keep your laptop from overheating.
The SmartFit Laptop Riser with Wireless Phone Charging Pad ($100 MSRP) puts your laptop up to eye level, while using the lower platform for wireless smartphone charging.
This company has added the Rugged USB-C (starting at $140 for 1TB of storage) to its lineup of “rugged” external hard drives. The device is also Thunderbolt 3 compatible, offers transfer speeds of up to 130MB, and comes in versions with as much as 4TB of storage.
A whole line of new products from this company: Logitech M220 Silent (pictured, $25 MSRP; same price on Amazon) and the Logitech M330 Silent Plus ($30 MSRP; same price on Amazon) wireless mice both offer noise-reduction features, while the Logitech M720 Triathlon Multi-Device Mouse ($70 MSRP) lets you pair and switch seamlessly between three computers “so you can power through tasks.”
OWC bills its new USB 3.1 Gen 1 Drive Dock ($75 MSRP) as “the easiest way to access bare SATA drives.” You can swap drives in and out quickly, read multiple drives at the same time, and do it all with transfer speeds above 400MB.
