All Dressed Up

Filed under: Uncategorized — chapterhouse @ 11:04 pm

This is the company, SF Bags, that made the custom sleevecase for my laptop, Harriett. Shown here is the basic sleevecase:

And here it is with the optional flap and shoulder strap (I chose the suspensor shoulder strap because it distributes the weight more evenly):

I chose the vertical orientation, rather than this horizontal one. Both come with a pouch on the other side. Another option is a piggy-back case for the cord.

The best thing is that you just tell them what kind of laptop you have, and the sleevecase will match its dimensions exactly!

I’d be embarrassed to tell you how many laptop-carrier-thingies I’ve bought for Harriett, but none of them is as kewl as this one!

Only thing is, Harriett wasn’t so sure about it at first. No, really. I put her in her new, custom-made case with the s-o-f-t, luxurious interior. It fit her like a well-made little black dress should. Then later, when I took her back out and turned her on, she just froze! I kept calling to her, “Harriett, it’s alright! Were you afraid of the dark place? Mommy’s sorry, she should have warned you first. Come on, Harriett. It’s going to be okay. Really.” Well, after a little more coaxing, she recovered and started working again, and now she has no problem at all with her case.

In fact, I don’t think she’d even look at another sleevecase now!



  1. You may have posted about this before, but if so I missed it. (Send me the link, please.) If not, could you enlighten your thousands of devoted readers as to the origin of your laptop’s name, Harriett? I’m sure there’s a good story there.

  2. Well, Duke, I guess I could make up a story for you, but that would be wrong …
    It’s just that when I brought her home, she said her name was Harriett. 🙂

  4. Gee, Candace. When our laptop arrived from Dell last spring, Carol announced that it’s name was “Doggie.” I haven’t had the nerve to ask her why.

    The padded backpack we bought to carry it in has been christened The Doghouse. (I haven’t heard the machine bark yet, but I think I DID catch it wimpering once.)

  5. That is really cool. I’ll have to share it with my husband. His moms new laptop arrived yesterday- she travels a lot!

  7. Glenda, I don’t have a MAC (alas), but they make sleevecases for them, too.
    Do you have a MAC? What’s his/her/its name?
