Everyone knows that a trip to the airport can be a tedious adventure. Long lines, security checks and baggage checkpoints can all lengthen what is our fastest mode of travel. Very few people travel without a computer any more. Not only do they travel with a computer, but a growing number travel with a netbook or small laptop. Many of these travelers want something more than just a sleeve for their netbook. Something that can become a small gear bag. To speed up the check-in and boarding process, the TSA has set guidelines for check point friendly carry-on luggage. Mobile Edge has created a nice selection of bags that meet these guidelines and has just expanded their offerings with ScanFast Netbook Cases.
ANAHEIM, Calif., – March 16, 2010 – Mobile Edge, the market leader in innovative and stylish laptop computer carrying cases and accessories, has expanded their ScanFast™ Checkpoint Friendly Collection with full-featured Netbook carrying cases, the first TSA Compliant Netbook Case Collection on the market. Netbook computer owners are looking for a more substantial case for their smaller computers, something more than a simple sleeve. As a result of this demand, Mobile Edge created the Edge Netbook Briefcase, Messenger Bag and Backpack – all designed to be Checkpoint Friendly.
Adding to their existing ScanFast™ Collection of TSA compliant Laptop Cases, Mobile Edge now offers the largest line of Checkpoint Friendly Cases in the industry. Whether you have an 8.9” Netbook or a 17.3” wide screen laptop, Mobile Edge has a solution for you.
Designed specifically for sleek ultra portable Netbooks, each Edge Netbook Case has an adjustable computer protection compartment that will adjust for 8.9” to 11.6” Netbooks with a power supply or up to 13.3” Notebooks.
Recent industry studies report that unit sales of Netbook computers more than doubled during 2009 and are expected to exceed 39 million units this year. A result of the lower price points and increased functionality, the Netbook format is now a well established segment of the portable PC market.
“We are delighted to bring the enhanced travel convenience of Checkpoint Friendly carrying cases to the rapidly growing market of Netbook users,” said G. David Cartwright, President & CEO, Mobile Edge. “With products like these new Netbook ScanFast cases, Mobile Edge continues to develop innovative new carrying case products to make life easier for portable computer users.”
The Edge ScanFast™ Netbook Case Collection consists of three product styles; the traditional Edge Briefcase – MEUEBC, the on-the-go Messenger Bag – MEUEMB and the versatile Edge Backpack – MEUEBP. The Edge ScanFast Netbook Cases are now shipping at a suggested retail price of $49.99. A new ScanFast Netbook Briefcase for women will be released this summer.
Mobile Edge continues to expand the laptop carrying case category by offering new, innovative and smart designs that fuse fashion trends with form and function, creating a brand that makes a positive statement about today’s mobile computing lifestyle.
