Laptop travel cases
Macally AirCase Lightweight Neoprene Sleeve
To call this a sleeve is misleading, as it's more like a sturdy briefcase. The outside is made out of neoprene, a form of synthetic rubber that absorbs impact and is tough as nails (Batman uses it as part of his armour in the movies). It has soft padding on the inside and a leather bottom. This case (HK$300, www.macally.com) should be enough to protect your beloved laptop from most accidental drops and bumps. A leather handle makes it easy to lug around.
Belkin Neoprene Sleeves
Imagine wrapping your laptop inside two pillows - that's what these sleeves are like. Soft, plush-lined fabric on the inside provides ample cushioning for laptops, while a slightly harder texture makes up the exterior. A symmetrical zipper design means you can open the sleeve from the top or the side. The sleeves (HK$270, www.belkin.com) come in multiple colours and four sizes, from 11-inch to 17-inch - perfect for those who carry their laptops on their daily commutes.
Matias Laptop Armour Aluminium Case
For those who need heavy duty protection, this aluminium briefcase (HK$1,300, www.matias.ca) is designed to store your laptop and more (multiple pockets inside, including room for power cables). In addition to the metallic exterior, there are foam spacers inside to ensure a snug fit. The combination of the exterior and interior protection is strong enough to withstand even a three-metre drop onto a concrete floor.
