Interdepartmental laptop sleeve

Keep your ultraportable computer safe

Laptop sleeves are designed to keep a laptop computer safe within your existing bag, such as a briefcase or backpack. This particular sleeve is designed for ultra-thin portable computers such as Apple's MacBook Air and Lenovo's X300.

The sleeve is made of a water-resistant fabric. Rubber corners are stitched into the interior of the sleeve to absorb energy from small impacts. Instead of a zipper to open the long edge of the sleeve, a flap on the short edge utilizes a hook-and-loop strip to keep the lightweight computing device from falling out.

One style of the design would use amber fabric, with an "interdepartmental mail envelope" design screen-printed on the face. This style would give a nod to an advertisement campaign where Apple, Inc. illustrated how their product fit inside one such envelope. This sleeve would be sized larger than the real envelope to accommodate padding material.

       Couldn't you just use a jiffy bag?

       Pre-heated by Asus a few years ago. It wasn't waterproof, but it was padded and sealed with a velcro flap.

       Jiffy bags almost work, as the bubble padding provides some shock protection and water resistance. On the other hand, the flap is not resealable and the paper exterior is likely to deteriorate quickly.

       Bah! My Yahoo searches did not find this, probably because I never used the word "manila". <nerdy voice>Actually, "manila" is a much lighter color than used to fabricate this type of envelope.</nv>

       .... or make the computer rather more rugged ..... ?

       The hot oil and steam doesn't cause a problem? Seems like a pretty tough environment for such a compact notebook.
