A laptop slip cover for the butterfingered

Leather strap could prevent expensive accidents.

You know those suitcases that are handcuffed to wrists in the movies? This is kind of an updated version of that for laptops.

The "Laptop Wallet" from Vienna-based Working Class Heroes (we don't often get to cite an Austrian company) is a slip cover with an invaluable feature for those of us who suffer the occasional lapse in basic motor skills--a leather wrist strap. As Gadget Grid notes, it's ideal for butterfingered students who might otherwise jeopardize their parental relationships by dropping their brand-new MacBook.

It's not a bad idea for some coordination-challenged adults as well, though we're not naming any names.
