Netbooks are smaller than most laptops, and as such, they need their own cases, slip covers, and other accessories designed to fit machines with 7 to 10 inch screens. So many slip covers, cases, and other doodads have come out in the last two years that yet another netbook case is hardly news. But the Everki Camber is hardly just another netbook case. No, this one’s got a bizarre trick up its sleeve: it’s designed to work as a netbook stand.
Here’s how it works. You can stuff your mini-laptop inside the case for safe keeping on the go, and the padded case will protect your computer from scuffs and scrapes. But there’s also a sloped edge on one side of the case. If you put the case on your lap or a table, you can place a netbook on top to take advantage of the 30 degree angle to prop up your netbook for comfortable typing.
You can also throw an AC adapter sloped portion of the case.
It’s an interesting gambit, and it certainly sets the Everki Camber apart from the competition. But so does the price tag: This netbook case will set you back $49.99.
