Review: Marware Sportfolio for Mac mini
Tuesday August 16, 2005 12:09 AM EST
The Marware Sportfolio for Mac mini is an excellent bag for transporting your Mac mini. The neoprene bag comes in black and measures 7.5" X 4.5" X 7.25". There are two large interior compartments with dual lined zippers for easy opening and two soft neoprene handles for carrying. Lining the zippers with neoprene prevents the Mac mini from getting scratched. You can use either of the Sportfolio's compartments for storing the Mac mini. The extra compartment can be used for the power supply, additional peripherals and cables. A blue neoprene exterior stretchy pocket on the bag's front is perfect for holding CDs, DVDs or extra cables.
Hard plastic inserts and extra edge padding are sandwiched in between neoprene layers on the sides of the bag to ensure maximum protection. There's another hard piece of plastic sandwiched in between the two compartments giving the bag more strength and structure. The bottom and sides of the Sportfolio are made out of vulcanized rubber. This adds more protection and prevents the bag from sliding when standing upright.
You can use the Sportfolio for Mac mini as a carrying bag with the included shoulder strap, or remove the strap and use it as a protective case when placing your mini in a travel case or backpack. The shoulder strap has a rubberized shock-absorbing cushion to save your shoulder from wear and tear. It connects to metal rings on each side of the bag with two heavy-duty metal swivel clips. It would have been easy to use plastic rings and clips here folks, but Marware went the extra step to ensure durability and quality by using metal. The shoulder strap can be adjusted for maximum comfort and is easily removable.
Overall, we can recommend the Marware Sportfolio for Mac mini and give it a score of 3.5 out of 4 stars. This durable neoprene bag has quality written all over it. The Marware Sportfolio for Mac mini is shipping now and retails for $44.95.
