Looking for a laptop sleeve that will turn heads at the office or at the local coffee bar on weekends? Barry's Farm has the wacky laptop sleeve market all sewn up.
Barry's Farm claims to be the sole provider of laptop sleeves that will make your computer look like a monster, guitar, or robot. It's safe to say you won't find duds like these for your laptop at the local Circuit City.
On the Barry's Farm blog, someone imagines what a board meeting at a major PC company would look like: "a sea of ties and white shirts." For some reason, the idea has real appeal -- reportedly, sales of the Nine-to-Five sleeves have really taken off.
This sleeve made me laugh out loud. But unsuspecting office workers accosted in the street by Business Week and asked to review the monster sleeve for this roundup of laptop carrying cases were somewhat less amused.
A few of the senior editors here at TechRepublic actually told me they wouldn't be comfortable carrying to our weekly staff meeting. Could it be that the furry, fanged sleeve doesn't come across as dour and professional enough? Impossible!
