Enter the USB-powered pad Chill Mat, which keeps Mac laptops up to 17"cool, thanks to 2 fans that... more

Targus says these screens also block glare and... more
The problem with so many laptop bags is their size. And weight. And price. And appearance. OK, so we have a few issues ever since we bought a "cheap" Targus laptop briefcase at Ross Dress For Less and found it more trouble than it was worth going through airport security, whacking people in the aisles on the plane, and maneuvering that and a suitcase through Grand Central Station. Next time we travel we're taking this... more
