While I haven’t done much in the way of tech reviews, I started using a new computer bag that I love and I thought I’d share my thoughts.
I recently picked up a Targus Revolution Ultrathin case. I stumbled on this bag at the airport recently and was drawn to its lean appearance and sturdy design. I had been using a Johnson & Murphy leather folio bag for my 13 inch MacBook Air for months. I love the sleek feel of it but I’ve been on the hunt for something that might offer a little more protection.
Here’s what I like about it
Multiple compartments in a small bag. The front compartment has a zip down work station with designated spaces for all my digital riff raft like power adapters and SD cards. It’s intelligently organized by someone who uses a bag like I do. There’s even a dedicated sleeve for my Mini. In the picture above you can see a grayish square on the front of the bag. That’s a special compartment for your mobile device – the window is translucent so you can see when your phone lights up. Very cool.
Compact. This puppy’s thin and has a low profile. It’s super compact and fits my 13 inch Air to a T. It would work great for any ultrabook up to 13 inches. Exterior dimensions are 14.25” x 12.38” x 2.88”.
Safe-port protection. The main compartment has a sling that cushions my machine from vertical impact. Clever, but I won’t test that feature right now.
Comfortable shoulder strap. While I tend not to use shoulder straps, I used the tangle-free Revolution strap during a recent family trip. The quality of the strap, clips and shoulder pad make it something worth using.
This is a minimalist, beautifully constructed bag with a low profile and real attention to detail that represents a great option for those working with an ultra thin laptop. I highly recommend it.
While it’s suitable for anyone, I can’t help but think how it could a doc’s 21st century ‘black bag.’ Because times, of course, are changing.
