Laptop backpacks for motherly computer owners
Okay, so even though I freely admit to naming my electronics, pampering them with accessories, showing them off to family and friends, swaddling them in cases, I'm not crazy. Not certifiably so, anyway. That's why even I know that the $80 laptop backpack from Built takes the "gadget-as-baby" phenomenon to new heights.
Designed for 12" to 17" notebook computers, the water-resistant neoprene backpack features three compartments (one for accessories, a shoulder pocket for whatever would fit there, and one for the laptop itself) and can be machine-washed and left on the line to drip dry. That's more than I can say about those handwash-only real babies.
