G-Form Announces Ultra Rugged Laptop Sleeve

Need a case for your 11", 13" or 15" laptop that can seriously take a beating? Look no further than the newest offering from G-Form. The company has just announced a product expansion, branching out from their typical athletic gear to make the Extreme Sleeve for for Laptop. The company already had such a sleeve for the iPad, but this marks the first time that it's available for a notebook.

Those familiar with the company will know that the iPad Extreme Sleeve managed to survive a 500-foot drop, and while we wouldn't recommend dropping your notebook that far, it's safe to say that your machine will be more protected in that sleeve than outside of it. The sleeve relies on Reactive Protection Technology, which allows it to be soft and flexible, yet remarkably durable. The material stiffens upon impact and absorbs over 90% of the energy, offering users a convenient means of protecting their precious device.

Of course, talk is cheap, but at least these guys have put their new sleeve to the test and has the video to prove it. It'll ship May 31st for $69.95, which feels like a bargain for the protection it offers.

Thats nice for the external casing and screen but if the laptop is fitted with a mechanical drive its still going to take a toll on the hard drive.

Makes more sense to market it as something to protect from bumps not really drops.
