Smart Shell review
The Smart Shell from Ergonomic Cafe is a novel solution, being both a laptop carry case and stand. The durable case is finished in an attractive, metallic-effect nylon. Inside the case you’ll find a solid metal stand firmly held in place by three rivets at the top.
Flip open the case and the stand can be adjusted to a suitable height by a combination of Velcro and cleverly folding the material to form a surprisingly sturdy support. A metallic lip juts out slightly to keep your 13in or 15in MacBook in place. The ability to adjust the viewing angle to suit personal preference is a major plus here, as is the option to simply wrap the case around your laptop ready for travel again.
While not the cheapest solution, the Smart Shell does at least reduce bulk and weight on the go and is a worthy option for busy commuters.
