Booq ships airport-friendly Taipan Lift notebook bag

updated 01:15 pm EST, Mon January 18, 2010

Bag fits either 13-inch or 15/17-inch Mac notebook

Booq has launched an airport-savvy notebook bag, the Taipan lift. The new bag features the ability to quickly unfold, leaving the notebook section unobstructed for quick inspection at airport security checkpoints. The front pocket provides compartments for paperwork and other items such as a boarding pass, wallet and water bottle. The opposing side holds either a 13-inch MacBook or MacBook Pro in the small version, while the large variant accommodates a 15-inch or 17-inch MacBook Pro. The bag has two handles, a removable shoulder-strap, and a quick-access 30-degree opening in addition to the zippered 180-degree opening.

A trolley handle pass-through can be used to anchor the bag to other luggage, while the overall dimensions are compact enough to fit under an airline seat. The 1680-denier fabric on the exterior is claimed to be water repellent, with padding providing additional protection for the notebook. To help recover a lost bag, it is linked with a unique Terralinq serial number registered to the owner.

The Taipan lift S (13-inch MacBook) costs $90, while the Taipan lift L (15/17-inch MacBook Pro) can be purchased for $100.

    Let me know how that bottle of water fares going through the security checkpoint in that bag. :-)

    Nice bag, actually.
