LOS ANGELES -- Here are a couple of items that make traveling with your technology a little easier. First is the Cargo case, with its cool cargo pocket, leather-ish and satin linings, and eye-catching pattern. Gadget Grrl says this designer laptop case is well-built and sturdy.
Next is the Drive-In DVD Storage system for Mac users. This gadget lets you copy and carry your DVDs with you on the road. Gadget Grrl warns there will be some loss of quality, but it beats carrying the individual cases with you.
Now more about the Cargo.

There are plenty of computer cases out there, but I looked at one of the most unique styles from Acme Made, the Cargo. For starters, it's built very well. It is sturdy enough for Laptops, and the new MacBook size is now available in its stripe pattern (textile design by Paul Smith and Plural Fossil). This pattern is a welcome relief to the sea of black, grey and brown cases that just get lost in the crowd.There is a large Cargo pocket (thus the name) on the front that is squared off, so you can put folders or company projects in there without worrying about them getting squashed.
And the interior of the Cargo pocket is lined with micro-suede (feels like leather).
On the inside of the main compartment, there is a quilted satin lining with cell foam padding on all sides, so your laptop is safe.
Of note also are the sturdy, leather handles and the extra back pocket -- great for stuffing airline boarding passes or papers.
