A Bodyguard for iPads and Netbooks


For many people, an iPad, or even a netbook, is a sizable investment that’s worth protecting. Pelican has just announced a new hard case for iPads and netbooks. Made of high-strength ABS, the Pelican 1075 HardBack Case is dustproof, watertight and crushproof, with a built-in purge valve to control air pressure. A built-in easel can hold your iPad or netbook upright for easy viewing and there’s a storage space for cables, adapters and other accessories. A removable shoulder strap is included.

Two model 1075 cases are available. Designed to hold an iPad, iPad2 or netbook, the Pelican 1075 HardBack Case features a customizable Pick 'N Pluck Foam interior that won't scratch your gear. Designed to hold netbooks up to 11.3 inches wide by 1.6 inches high by 8.1 inches deep, the Pelican 1075CC HardBack Case features a plush shock absorbing foam liner.

If you do a lot of traveling with your iPad or netbook, or are even thinking about taking it on a canoe trip or anywhere near water, you won’t want to leave home without one of these cases protecting your investment.
