DealBITS Drawing: MaxSleeve and iProtect

Send Article to a Friend

My main laptop bag holds so much that I'm tempted to pack a lot more than I need much of the time, and the end result is that my svelte little 12-inch PowerBook G4 ends up being only a fraction of the overall weight I carry. For an outing where I don't want all my gear, or, in fact, anything but the laptop itself, I've just started using a MaxSleeve from MaxUpgrades. It's a sleek black bag made of a dense polyurethane foam, and my PowerBook fits snugly inside. A pair of zippers enable you to close it, and the zippers are on the outside so they never come in contact with the surface of the PowerBook. MaxUpgrades also sent me their iProtect cloth, which is a microfiber cloth you can use to prevent finger oils on your keycaps from marring the LCD screen surface when your laptop is closed; it's also designed to clean sensitive LCD screens without scratching.

In this week's DealBITS drawing, you can enter to win one of two bundles of a MaxSleeve and an iProtect cloth, worth up to $38.98 (the price of the MaxSleeve varies slightly with laptop size). Entrants who aren't among our lucky winners will receive a discount on both, so if you're looking for a laptop sleeve, be sure to enter at the DealBITS page linked below. All information gathered is covered by our comprehensive privacy policy. Be careful with your spam filters, since you must be able to receive email from my address to learn if you've won.

Lastly, remember that you can increase your chances of receiving a prize. On the confirmation Web page and in the email confirmation message entrants receive, you'll see a custom URL that you can send to friends and colleagues so they can enter the drawing too. If one of our randomly chosen winners entered using your referral URL, you'll receive exactly the same prize. The more people you refer, the more likely it is that you'll win a prize, so feel free to distribute your referral URL widely (without acting like a spammer, of course!)
