iProtect and Maxprotect II – Screen Protector and Powerbook Case
We count on engineers to design everything in our lives – our cars, our plumbing systems, our televisions. And usually they do a good job. Yet when it comes to laptops, engineers may not be getting it right. How? When your notebook is closed, its keys may actually cause damage to its own screen. Idiotic, right? Luckily, this is where the uber-engineers from Maxupgrade come in. They’ve designed two new products, iprotect, and Maxprotect II, to ensure your portable pal doesn’t harm itself.
You’re probably already had the stinking suspicion that your notebook keys were damaging its screen. You may have already noticed those discrete, but very visible, little lines and nicks in your display that suspiciously correspond with the keys, letters, and symbols on your keyboard.
Your suspicions were well-founded. When a laptop is closed, the keys can in fact contact the screen. Oil on the keys can them build up on the display and cause permanent damage. How could those plebian engineers do that to you, you ask?
Let it go, brother. Try the MaxUpgrade iProtect cushioning pad and screen protector first. It’s a simple and cost-effective device that rests between keyboard and screen when your notebook is shut and prevents that sort of harm.
What’s more, the cushioning pad also ensures that your laptop is aligned properly when closed. It provides tension-not too much, just the right amount between the laptop base and the display case. This prevents play between the two that usually happens over time when the two become loose, and the subsequent damage to your laptop.
If you have a PowerBook, for the ultimate protection you can also look into purchasing MaxProtect II, a synthetic leather case that is specifically designed to protect Apple notebooks from impacts, drops, smacks, and any other risk to their safety.
The MaxProtect comes in versions for 12-, 15, and 17-inch PowerBooks. Its interior is lined with cushion velvet, which provides a soft yet tight home for your notebook when you’re on the road. And despite the strength of the case, it weighs in with the lowest size-to-weight ratio possible.
