PowerSleevz; ScreenSavRz

I'm new to PowerBooks. Now the proud owner of an aluminium PowerBook, I worry about wear and tear. Luckily Radtech has a range of products to keep my baby safe and scratch-free. The PowerSleevz cover is a soft, suede-like envelope that slips over your PowerBook. The material is synthetic and slightly stretchy, which means it fits the PowerBook like a glove. When not holding the PowerBook it can double as a screen duster, and it also helps grip the PowerBook so you are less-likely to drop it. If you don't have an expensive carry case, PowerSleevz can protect your machine loose in a regular bag. It doesn't offer much padding, but should repel scratches. If you want to keep your PowerBook looking brand new this will help a lot. Older PowerBooks often suffer from screen scratches due to the keyboard touching the screen when the machine is closed. It's not yet clear if my 15-inch PowerBook suffers the same design flaw, but I don't want to find out. To this end, RadTech also makes ScreenSavRz, a soft cloth that sits on your keyboard while the machine is closed, keeping the pressure off the screen. It is a bit of a hassle to keep putting it on and taking it off. However, the alternative could mean a dinged-up screen, which will never get fixed – so it's worth the effort.

OUR VERDICT

Both of these products will keep your machine looking new when others look like they've been in combat. However I'm irked that the product is available for a lower dollar price than we pay in pounds.
