More black and orange styling, this time from Booq. The Cobra.XM is in the style of a traditional laptop case, but as Booq describe it, a supercharged version. It certainly has a lot of features and looks to be one of the toughest laptop cases around. In our tests, the Cobra.XM with a 15-inch PowerBook inside fell off a table. There were no ill effects; in fact, it looks to be able to withstand quite a lot more punishment than that.

Inside there are almost too many pockets. The frame of the bag is very stiff, and would be tough enough to check-in if you were overloaded on a plane. If you didn’t want to trust your PowerBook to the tender mercies of baggage handlers, you can simply take out the inner core, which is a sleeve with handles that hold just your PowerBook.


If there was any criticism it would be that it is a little on the heavy side, but the plethora of features makes it worth the extra bulk.
