A funky alternative to a laptop bag
BookBook by Twelve South Price: €90 Rating: ****
I've never been one for bags. But I'm often forced to carry one around, as transporting my 11-inch MacBook Air around in a bare sleeve looks and feels weird. That was until I got my hands on Twelve By South's funky BookBook cover. It's a (hardened) leather laptop sleeve dressed up as a venerable old book.
Aside from looking cool, it's extremely well made, with plenty of padding and very nice to the touch. It's also a lot more security-conscious than most laptop sleeves (who wants to steal a book?).
It doesn't mess about with extra pockets, either, which keeps the entire package slim enough to walk around comfortably with.
The same sleeve is available for iPads.
