I have become rather attached to this sleeve for my laptop, not just because it protects this essential tool of my trade as I haul it around with me on interviews, but also because the designs are appealing.

The best-selling design is a discreet world map, and there are geometric designs in monotones that would be suitable for business appearances, but I prefer the colourful options, simply because the boldness makes them easy to find, handy if they are in a suitcase full of clothes or if you are trying to remember where you left the sleeve before you rush out the door.

The laptop sleeves come in the black and white globe and geometric designs and busier, happy retros, flowers, dots and stripes. They are easy to use, zip open far enough around three corners to slide out the laptop.You can even leave them in the sleeve while plugged in.

A bonus would be if this laptop cover was waterproof, particularly for someone like me who carries the laptop in all weathers, or in case your shampoo leaks in the suitcase. But otherwise it does its job in a colourful and decorative way.

The DQ sleeves come in two sizes: 25cm ($34.99) and 38.1cm ($49.99) and are available at selected stores in New Zealand and online at
