Fire-Safe waterproof hard drive
Most hard drives can’t stand up to the elements. This durable model acts like a protective skin, “safeguarding your data from water for up to 24 hours and from flames up to 1,550 F.”

PocketTop
This chic bag can fit your laptop and also function as an “instant workstation,” thanks to its built-in lap cushion. Durable and hand-washable, it comes in a variety of colors from orange to silver.

Little Disks
Computer accessories often look non­descript. LaCie’s USB and FireWire external hard drives have all the “right tech specifications in what looks like luxury makeup packaging.”

Intel Classmate
This kid-friendly laptop, designed for children in a classroom environment, has a miniature screen and keyboard and minimal storage capacity. But its “secret weapon” is that it runs a grown-up version of the familiar Windows XP operating system.
