    Built NY Charger bag review

    7  

    If you need to carry power cables and chargers around with your laptop, you'll know how cumbersome and untidy they can get. This neat carry case from Built NY is designed specifically to take the stress out of such cables.

    Sitecom TM-015 Card Reader review

    7  

    This compact solution from Sitecom is one of the smallest we've seen, with a mini-USB connector on the rear for hooking up to your laptop and spaces on the three remaining sides for slotting in cards.

    Speck SeeThru hard shell review

    Speck SeeThru hard shell review

    8  

    We reviewed a similar pink coloured shield a few issues ago for a 15-inch MacBook Pro, but prefer this larger version with less garish colouring. There are two parts, a top and a bottom, which snap onto a 17-inch MacBook Pro or PowerBook and protect it from scratches and scrapes.

    Built NY Neoprene sleeve review

    Built NY Neoprene sleeve review

    5  

    Looking like a cast-off from a scuba diver's wardrobe, this hourglass-shaped laptop sleeve is a washable neoprene sack that snugly fits a 17-inch MacBook Pro. It offers protection against marks and small knocks, but not against drops to the floor or heavy impact.

    UDG Creator Laptop Shield review

    6  

    This is a good quality laptop sleeve from UDG, the company better known for making DJ bags and boxes. It's soft-lined on the interior with a harder, tightly woven outer shell to take knocks, scrapes, and splashes

    Antec NP-100-GB Power Pack review

    Antec NP-100-GB Power Pack review

    8  

    Laptops only ship with one power brick, but what happens if that dies or you don't want to carry yours but need to charge at the office? The Antec NP-100-GB features seven detachable heads with various connections to support most of the leading brands

    Speck See-Thru 15-inch case review

    Speck See-Thru 15-inch case review

    8  

    Occasionally we pine for the days when Macs were candy coloured, and not the white and metal anodyne creations that we have today. This Speck case slips over the MacBook Pro to give it an entirely new see-through skin - a bright pink one!

    Samsonite Laptop Pillow D42 review

    Samsonite Laptop Pillow D42 review

    7  

    This is probably the first laptop bag that we've ever wanted to put our heads in for a quick kip. You see, the inside padding of the Laptop Pillow is a thick foam, which is, in our humble opinion, wasted on mere technology.

    iSkin Soho review

    8  

    Sitting in the middle of the shelf, somewhere between bulletproof hard cases and the wafer-thin silky sleeves, is this leather-ish offering from iSkin. It doesn't offer the same level of impact protection, or foldaway convenience of others

    Belkin Cushtop review

    Belkin Cushtop review

    7  

    Belkin's Laptop@home range is an interesting concept. Its own studies show that 80 per cent of laptops bought never make it out of the home and end up being used at a kitchen table or on a lap when sat on the sofa

    Griffin Elevator review

    Griffin Elevator review

    9  

    On the box, there's a photo of a MacBook Pro perched on the Elevator. This gives you some idea of the inspiration behind this new laptop stand from Griffin: it's a perfect partner for the brushed-aluminium finish of Apple's flagship laptop

    Griffin Elevator review

    7  

    Even grizzled road warriors have to return home some time, and the Griffin Elevator is designed for just such an eventuality. The idea is that laptop screens placed on a desk cause you to hunch over and can cause back problems in the long term

    Port Designs Laptop CoolFan Stand review

    Port Designs Laptop CoolFan Stand review

    7  

    Keeping your laptop cool is a good way to extend its lifespan, as it keeps heat at a level less likely to damage core internal components. While all laptops have built-in cooling systems, the CoolFan Stand adds an extra breath of fresh air

    Knomo Renton review

    Knomo Renton review

    7  

    While most laptop cases combine affordability and functionality, the Knomo Renton (£185 inc. VAT) provides a chic yet expensive alternative. Finished in black or tan leather, any laptop up to 15.4-inches in size can be carried comfortably

    Belkin PocketTop review

    Combining a laptop case and stand, the Belkin PocketTop (£35 inc. VAT) is designed for use around the house. Available in a choice of green, orange or silver, the concept is to keep your laptop protected from dust and dirt

    Logitech Alto review

    There are any number of laptop stands that bring your machine's screen up to a more ergonomic eye-level when you're sat at your desk, but Logitech is the first company to add a full-sized keyboard to the process...

    Axio Hardsleeve review

    As protective sleeves go, this one has to be about as bulletproof as you would ever want. Unless, of course, you did actually want a bulletproof one, in which case... Oh never mind, you get the point

    This Ansmann Power Pack is a portable battery charger for PowerBooks and iBooks. It takes approximately five hours to charge, and will top up your battery twice over before you need to recharge it again

    MoGo Mouse BT review

    MoGo Mouse BT review

    6  

    Apple technology moves fast, and that means a lot of peripheral kit can become redundant quickly. Take this mouse, for example. It works really well, is super slim and therefore travels brilliantly, but just won't work with the latest Apple notebooks

    Ansmann Portable Power Pack for Notebooks review

    4  

    Since the all-day laptop battery is still a rarity, it's essential to carry a spare if you want to keep working on the move. The Ansmann Portable Power Pack for Notebooks claims to double your uptime, but the reality is a little less impressive
