Laptops are going everywhere that our laps are going. Many people have scrapped the idea of a desktop computer to rely 100% on their laptop computer. All of their pictures, music, emails, as well as their gateway to the virtual world lies in those 6lbs of battery operated, LCD screen goodness. This is why it’s important to carry around your $2000.00 investment not only in safety, but also in style.
I have decided to test multiple laptop carrying devices in order to find the perfect fit for the perfect moment. This is the first of many laptop case reviews. Each item tested will be subject to a laptop case obstacle course (The LIVEdigitally Laptop Case Obstacle Course). This test will push laptop case manufacturers to their full potential forcing their positives to shine through, and allowing their faults to be exposed.
The LIVEdigitally Laptop Case Obstacle Course consists of 5 tests:
1.) Capacity Test: Can the case hold everything needed for a trip with my laptop?
2.) One Hour Endurance Test: I will load the case with all my necessary items, and wear it for one hour. How do I feel after that hour?
3.) Water Test: Loaded with dry cardboard, I will douse the bag with water to simulate a rainy environment. Is the cardboard wet afterwards?
4.) Function vs. Style Test: Does this case suit both needs of looking cool while getting the job done.
5.) The Female Test: I will ask three separate girls what they think of the bag, does it make me look good? –if they answer yes, I may get some phone numbers! (bonus) (more…)
