One of our favourite brands, Samsung are constantly releasing new tech devices which we can’t wait to get our hands on, and we’ve just received some new products which are the perfect accessories for their latest gadgets.
Samsung Series 9 Cases & Bags
The Samsung Series 9 is a truly stunning piece of engineering, both in terms of looks and specification. The laptop is of course designed to rival Apple’s MacBook Airs (which we have a wide range of MacBook Cases, MacBook Pro Cases and MacBook Sleeves) with it’s ultra thing design and lightweight body. The Series 9 is ultra mobile, with a fantastic screen, processor speed and hard drive space, it really is Samsung’s flagship model. Fortunately we have a wide range of Samsung Series 9 Cases available to buy, which complement the ultra thin design of the Series 9, whilst looking good and providing excellent protection.
Samsung NF110 NetBook Cases & Bags
Whilst netbook sales might be slowly declining, and we’ve seen it on our site with the massive growth of our tablet accessories, there are still a wide number of awesome netbooks to buy on the market, including the Samsung NF110, which is ultra portable, well spec’d and a very reasonable price at around the £280 mark. We have some new Samsung Nf110 netbook cases, to complement our other netbook cases & bags, as well as our other laptop accessories including some great laptop cases.

I get really red up with the unresponsive touchpad on my laptop, so the obvious solution is to have a mouse. But what if you are trying to use your laptop in a confined space such as on a train balancing on a flip-down tray, or in bed, or resting the laptop on your lap. An old fashioned mouse can be just too big and bulky.
SwiftPoint have created a new award-winning wireless mouse – small enough to take wherever you go and more efficient than a touchpad.
The SwiftPoint Mouse is really small, but with its easy-to-use pen-like grip is comfortable and intuitive . It features advanced scrolling, paging and zooming functions, letting you navigate around your laptop screen with amazing accuracy. In fact it is 30-40% more efficient than a touchpad.
Having said that the best feature for me is that it’s so small that it can be used on top of your laptop just alongside the trackpad, meaning that you can use it wherever you are – even if there’s no available surface. I have tested this mouse on a number of packages including Photoshop and even for gaming and it’s accuracy really is something else.
Not surprising then that The SwiftPoint Mouse has won several awards including Winner of Popular Science in the Best of What’s New Awards and an Innovations Award from CES Design and Engineering Program Computer Peripheral 2011.
In order to charge the mouse, you just connect it to the SwiftPoint dock; a USB dock with super-charge function, which will give you another full hour’s usage from just 30 seconds’ charge. And yes that’s extra small also.

Netbook Choice kindly reviewed the popular Cool Bananas ‘OldSchool’ Netbook Messenger Bag for us. Here’s a quick overview of the comments, although you may want to read the full review here.
“The messenger bag has very classic styling as judged by its ‘OldSchool’ name. It is made out of high standard materials and wouldn’t be seen out of place for business use. Even just looking at it screams of premium quality.”
“As befits the styling of the messenger bag, it’s nice to see that Cool Bananas embossed its logo into the flap rather than including its usual coloured logo that would have seemed out of place. The exterior is made out of a soft leatherette material. You’d be hard pressed to tell the difference between real leather as the texture looks and feels very similar.”
“Overall, reviewing the OldSchool Netbook Messenger Bag reinforced the high regard we have for Cool Bananas products. There is no doubting the high quality of craftsmanship that has gone into its construction and the premium feel of materials used.”
“The only surprising thing about the bag is the price. It feels much more expensive than it is, for less than £30 you get a messenger bag that would not look out of place for business use. This is perhaps where the bag is targeted with the ability to carry around netbooks up to 12.1-inches in size along with enough room for documents and small accessories. Even for everyone else, it is a stylish bag that should last for a long time and comes fully recommended.”
You can buy the Cool Bananas ‘Old School’ Netbook Bag at the GearZap store for £29.97 (at time of publishing). It’s available in a choice of Black or Brown.
