wooden-powerbook-crate.jpgNo one likes the prospect of the end of summer and there’s just something about start of August that says “one last month” before the summer begins to fade and it’s time to get serious again.
One of my favorite things about the fall is, well, NFL football, But until kickoff on 07 September I live for the sound of Velcro being torn open and the smell of fresh Cordura Nylon in the air.
The start of August can only mean one thing – that it’s time for PowerPage Bag Blowout 2006.
Whether you’re a slick corporate raider, hipster student or just a stinky hippy in a van, we’ve got something for everyone this year. Although I really like the concept of Bag Week (think Shark…) one week isn’t enough time to cover all the great new luggage that’s available for notebook computer totage. So now that it’s August I’ll be peppering the site with fresh reviews of some crazy new bags from your favorite vendors.
(If there’s something special that shouldn’t be looked over during Bag Month, let me know and I’ll do everything I can to have it included.)
Me, I’m a simple dude. When at home I keep my pimped MacBook Pro in a wooden crate and when I’m on the road I kick it with a homemade MacBook Pro sleeve made out of foam core and duct tape. Cha!
So what do you, fair PowerPage reader, carry your precious cargo in? Chime in using the comments below. FWIW I’ve turned off all authentication (read: no registration) on comments, so have at it, but please behave!
