When you take your laptop with you, you rarely take your mousepad. Even though optical mice track on most surfaces, they don't always track well on all. That's why it's a good idea to have one around. Luckily Artmu have come up with a solution to this problem: a mousepad that is integrated into a laptop sleeve, to make sure that you have it with you at all times.
Even though trackpads are getting more and more functionality, nothing beats a really good optical mouse with 8 or so programmable buttons. It just makes browsing and computing faster, no matter how you do. That's why it's frustrating to end up in a place that doesn't have the right surface for your optical mouse. Well, Artmu thought about this quandary and have come up with an interesting solution. They've put a mousepad inside one of their laptop sleeves. So you'll just unzip and be ready to work.
We think that this is a great solution for travelers, students, and people who work on their laptops elsewhere than at home. The fact that all you have to do to use this is to unzip your laptop sleeve is really convenient and interesting. It makes us wonder why no one else thought of this before. The Artmu sleeve is available in black, pink and red and works with laptops from 10" to 15". It will cost between $15 and $20. [via Ubergizmo]
