Travel Ease
The Targus Zip-Thru 15.4-inch Corporate Traveler laptop case is designed to eliminate the trouble of removing laptops from their case when going through airport security. The divided case isolates the laptop on one side to allow for clear X-ray scanning. The case includes a padded shoulder strap with nonslip coating to keep the case in place. It's made of durable ballistic 1680 denier nylon, measures 16.93x 6.5x13.98 inches and weighs 3.74 pounds.

Niche Mouse

Newton Peripherals' MoGo Presenter Mouse PC combines a wireless mouse and presenter that stores and charges in a laptop's PC/PCMCIA card slots. The business card-size mouse operates like conventional optical wireless mice, with scroll, right click and left click. A button converts the mouse into a presenter remote so users can manage PowerPoint presentations -- advance slides, start/escape and blank screens -- from 30 feet away.

Dell's Studio Hybrid PC can be personalized with six optional, external jewel-tone color or bamboo sleeves. The PC contains up to 320 GB Serial ATA hard drive (5,400 RPM), up to 4 GB 667 MHz dual channel DDR2 SDRAM memory and comes with either Intel Pentium Dual-Core or Intel Core 2 Duo processors. The Studio Hybrid's options also includes a Blu-ray disc drive for watching high-definition video and a tuner that lets users watch, pause and record live TV.

Click Clack
Das Keyboard's Professional keyboard features German-engineered gold-plated mechanical key switches that create a distinct "click" with each keystroke to make typing more crisp, decisive and fast. The N-key rollover function registers 12 key presses simultaneously without keys jamming. The keyboard includes two high-speed USB 2.0 ports and a 6.6-foot USB cable. The Professional has traditional QWERTY markings on its keys, and a blank-key version -- the Ultimate keyboard -- is also available.
