You can almost make out that there's a computer under there somewhere.

Amazon.com: Microsoft Ladies Laptop Tote - Madison

Joy just got one of these, and it’s pretty impressive. A feminine-looking tote bag, which gives no indication that inside is plenty of padding and pockets for your laptop, powerpack, and assorted other gadgetry.

Ruckus Laptop Backpack review: Simply Awesome

I just got one of these on the recommendation of Yoz, and it is top-notch. A dedicated laptop section, plus an excellent array of pockets and pouches. I got mine from NewEgg for $40 + shipping.

iLap Laptop Stand

Picked one of these up over the weekend to stop my MacBook from frying my intimate areas when I’m working on the couch. Initial reaction: Very comfortable.

Ah, the pleasures of working from home. (See notes on picture.) I could get quite used to this.

You’re It! » MacBook as tag cloud

Brilliant idea! Print your del.icio.us tag cloud onto a massive vinyl sticker at PimpMyLaptop, then cover your MacBook with it. Easy way to advertise your interests in meatspace.

My Laptopstickers

My Laptopstickers

My olde, busted-up, nicked-from-three-jobs-ago laptop. Now barely-functional (the powercord doesn't quite stay in, the battery lasts about 4 seconds, and the lid hinges won't keep the screen open), but I wanted to document its coverage before I bin it.

Apple Powerbook 5300cs

Apple Powerbook 5300cs

Intel is for wussies. The 100Mhz PowerPC 603e is where it's at.

This laptop was unceremoniously dumped in the random-crap-pile outside my cube. It's ten years old, running System 7.5, has a staggering 24Mb of RAM, and a whopping 500Mb hard drive. Anyone got suggestions for what I can use it for?
