Ok peopleSo my laptop went to 'laptop heaven' last week. Actually I think it may have gone to the other place as I was not happy with the fact that it decided to just 'black screen' me. To be honest I think it was rather ungrateful to just leave me like that. It had never been mistreated. And it was only 3 years old. DH basically said "I told you Dell was !&%$". Yes, ok, whatever. But although I love my iPhone and my iPad I refuse to use a Macbook!
Fortunately I was able to back up the most important stuff. And my supervisor agreed that I could use grant funding for a new one as I use it for work! Yay! So the IT guys are currently sorting out something for me. Basically I need it to be light and portable so I can use it on my long commute. The IT guy did not seem impressed when I asked if I could get a 'pretty colour'. It seems I cannot unfortunately. I just don't understand why he didn't realise the importance of a cute laptop. But to cut a long story short I decided that I would get a pretty laptop case instead! Here are the best options from the internet in my humble opinion.
The above offering from Not on the High Street for £66 is lovely and vintage looking. However I think the colours are a bit too subdued for me.
Orla Kiely always has the most beautiful designs. This is quirky and lovely but I think at £77 it is too expensive for what it is.
Ah I love Boden and this spots design is just the thing to cheer me up on a cold, dark, winter's morning. It is quite reasonably priced at £22. There is another version in a more subdued, floral pattern (i.e. not me).
I think Cath Kidston is great although I don't own anything by her brand. This sleeve only cost £26 and is actually quite lovely.
Here is another offering by Cath Kidston for the same price. It is quite quirky as well but I think I may tire of the stars after a while.
So I haven't ordered any of these as yet. I would be interested to know which of the contenders is your favourite. Please share in the comments. Also if you have any other recommendations for laptop sleeves for 13' screens then let me know too!
Enjoy your day.
