This week is all about the power as we've got deals that'll turn you into a powerhouse laptop god at a low, low price and external batteries that'll keep your iOS action rocking no matter where you go. So tuck in to the discounts and get your credit cards ready.
Your desktop has gotten rather long in the tooth. Yes, yes, it has. Sure, you've thought about upgrading to one of the sweet newer iMacs, but the price. Well, you can keep on limping along with slow processor speeds, or you can grab one of the many great and great-priced refurbs we've got going on this week. And if you need some cut-price gear, you've come to the right place.
If you’re on the hunt for a professional-looking backpack to haul your daily tech, you could do a lot worse than the ECBC Harpoon Daypack. Made of durable water-repelling ballistic nylon, the Harpoon is a great choice for commuters and adventurers alike.

We reviewed Mission Workshop’s Vandal backpack last year, and while we were impressed by the fact that it could carry a lot of stuff, we were not happy with its lack of protective padding for a MacBook. This time around, we appreciated how the VX Small Rucksack includes a little more structure for your stuff, but Mission Workshop missed the boat on the laptop padding once again.
The deals, they keep on coming, whether it be MacBooks of all shapes and configs or cases and software. We've searched for the best of the week and you'll want to move quick. Some of these are very limited time only.
I’ve never received so many compliments until I started donning this backpack around town. Family members, colleagues, and even a few fashionable hipsters threw a “Love your backpack!” my way. This is one of the most stylish, functional backpacks I’ve ever worn, and it’s good at carrying my gear, too. But it’s not exactly one of those bags you want to haul everything in at all times.
I kinda have a thing for bags. I know exactly what I want from them, but it’s so hard to find one that does everything a gadget-hauling nerd like me could wish for. But if I ever get to design my own backpack someday, it’s going to look an awful lot like the Powerbag.
Like that one scene from The Empire Strikes Back, hauling all my gear around sometimes makes me feel like I’ve got Yoda on my back, nagging at me to become a faster, stronger Jedi (oh, how I wish I were a Jedi!). All my stuff can be a burden when I’m traversing the city on foot or cycling up hills. Timbuk2’s Hemlock backpack helps lighten the load while reminding me that backpacks don’t have to be big and ugly to be practical.
