Palmtop Case Wars

Palmtop Case Wars

I spent quite a bit of time examining EduCALC's relatively large (and kinda pricey) selection of palmtop cases at their store today. [EduCALC phone: 800-677-7001; fax: 714-582-1445.]

The best case, in my opinion, was the brand new "Leather Desk" (#2764), a high quality black leather case with six card slots, multiple interior pockets, pen loop, detachable strap, and a slick mounting bracket for the Palmtop which is VELCRO'ed to the case. Nice, but steep at $64.95.

The TimeBoss Leather Case (#2750, retails for ) is a nice case -smaller, and less functional than the Leather Desk, but with better leather. [No longer available from EduCALC. Contact: Connection Point Inc.; Phone: 608 757 0673; Fax: 608 755 1744.]

The real news is that the POUCH case (#2736), retails for $19.95. The POUCH provides more pickpocket protection than EduCALC's "leather" case, which is wonderfully silent in comparison to the alarming "RRRRIIIIIIPPPP" of the Velcro fastener (a.k.a. built-in security alarm) on the POUCH.

The EduCalc leather wallet (#2638) is nicely made, but the mounting system for the PC is not as secure. There isn't nearly enough room inside and has fewer features in contrast to the Leather Desk. At $43.95, you're better off with the Leather Desk.

The remainder of their zipper pouch cases seemed pricey and/or chintzy.

BOTTOM LINE: If you need space for extra gear, go for the Leather Desk. If you want simple or inexpensive, pick up the POUCH.
