98 MacDirectory BUYERS GUIDE macdirectory buyers guide The new decade is off to a great start, and here are some hot new products just for you. MacDirectory presents its latest Buyers Guide. From a nifty new product to park peripherals behind your iMac to an airport-friendly laptop bag, and more, we have it covered. >> BackPack Adjustable Shelf for Mac BackPack is a sturdy, sleek-looking shelf designed exclusively to attach to the back of iMac and Apple Cinema Displays. This handy little piece of heavy gauge steel is perfectly sized to hold hard drives, USB peripherals or even a Mac mini. You can use the perforated base to tie up that web of cables lurking behind your Mac. BackPack is the perfect place to park portable hard drives, card readers or other USB peripheral you want to hide, but need easy access to every now and then. Set your USB hub on the shelf and tie your cables to it for a super tidy workspace. BackPack is also a handy home to stash your iPhone or iPod while charging and syncing. Retail price: $149.99. >> Taipan Lift Laptop Bag from Booq Although Taipan lift is our most airport friendly bag yet, it might just be the most practical compact brief we have ever designed for everyday use. While the bag opens 30 degrees for normal use, unsnapping two buttons lets you open it a full 180 degrees, so that you may not need to pull out your laptop at airport security, making life a little easier. The compact yet surprisingly roomy and lightweight Taipan lift features a zippered trolley handle pass- through, a nicely padded laptop compartment, and an extremely functional interior for all your accessories. Equipped with two convenient tuck-away carrying handles and a completely removable shoulder strap. And if you ever lose this bag, each Taipan lift is equipped with a unique Terralinq badge and serial number, designed to help you recover your lost bag. Retail price: $99.95. macdirectory buyers guide
