    I would be thrilled to receive any of these as a Christmas gift! Great job finding ten budget-friendly but still fun laptop bags (it’s about time retailers realize that only the guys dig those plain black utilitarian cases).

    My mom just received her new laptop and was commenting last night about my cute case. Thanks for finding these, as now I’ll have another last-minute present for her, but with more a more unique style than those covers I’ve been seeing at the standard computer stores! 🙂 Thanks!
