Do you have a laptop, notebook or other tech gear that you carry around with you everywhere you go maybe for work, school or just incase? Well I do I have a full size laptop that I take with me most of the time when we are on the go, but the way I have to transport it is using a smaller gym bag that to be quite honest is too big and bulky to really make it easy to take my computer with me and since I start school next week I got to thinking that I most defiantly needed a smaller much more convenient way to carry it to class…and after checking at our local tech stores and seeing the outrageous prices of the laptop carrying cases I decided to check online to see what I could find and I was extremely happy and excited when I discovered Tech Totes and they agreed to allow me to host a review and giveaway right here on The Cartoon Lovin’ Mama!
About Tech Totes (taken from website):
Tech Tote began as a request from friends to come up with well-designed, colorful carry cases for their laptops. Unhappy with the prohibitive prices and boring designs available, owner Via Perlas established Tech Tote in 2006. With a loyal following and a constant passion for improvement, Tech Tote continues to churn out fun designs. It is currently available at all Powerbooks stores, Mobile1 Rockwell, Mobile1 Park Square, all Electronics Boutique branches, Ynzal Marketing and A Different Bookstore. Watch out for Tech Tote coming soon to a store near you!
I was sent two adorable Tech Totes, one to review and one to offer as a giveaway for all of you guys and gals that read my blog! I had spent quite some time on the Tech Tote website checking out all of their adorable and unique Tech Totes, and I was very excited to see which totes I would be receiving and once they arrived (quickly I must add) I was super happy when I seen the two that I was sent and then I had to make the ever so hard decision of which I wanted to keep and which I wanted to offer as the giveaway, but I finally decided I would keep the Lemon Torte since my laptop and all the accessories I would need would fit in it perfectly!
So, I’m keeping the Lemon Torte Tech Tote that I was sent and I love it! It’s nice a sleek and holds all my must have accessories and my laptop with a little room to spare for important papers, writing utensils and such! I’m also loving the color of the Lemon Torte Tote the brown and yellow go together so perfectly and I love that the main body of the tote is dark brown so that it won’t show dirt when I’m in a hurry and don’t have time to wipe it down, and being a super busy mom that’s super important!
I’ve been using the Lemon Torte Tech Tote over the last week and I absolutely love it! It makes packing up and taking my computer with me much easier than lugging that bulky gym bag here and there. I also love that the Lemon Torte has several different pockets, a zippered middle compartment and zippered side compartment that helps keep my cords from getting all tangled up, as well as offers me a place that I can carry my camera and usb cord all organized! I can also carry my cell phone and a bottled drink with out any worries in the front outside pocket! This tote also features a insert that is held into the tote by Velcro and can easily be removed to slip my laptop in for even more convince and protection!
The tote I received that I am going to offer as a giveaway is the Clothesline slim tote that will allow you to carry your 13.3” laptop and has an inner compartment for your important documents or cards. I really like this particular tote because of the fun design and it’s size, if I had a laptop that small enough to put in the Clothesline tote I would have most definitely kept it, but since I don’t I’m going to offer it to one of my lucky readers, so keep reading to find out how to enter.
I’m very impressed by both the quality of both of the Tech Totes I received and I am really enjoying having the Lemon Torte over the past week and I have to admit it has forever changed the way I will be transporting my laptop from now on, no more bulky gym bag for me! The totes offered from Tech Totes can be used for way more than just laptops, like say the giveaway prize, I think it would also make a wonderful carrying case for your digital camera and all of it’s accessories so you can have easy access to them at all times, so really the possibilities are endless and with all the awesome designs and sizes of Tech Totes available I’m positive you will find something to fit all of your tote needs!
I would highly recommend Tech Totes to anyone that has a need to carry their tech gear with them for the simple fact that they are very durable and made of high quality materials and best of all they are so affordable that I don’t know how you could pass them up!!!
