Do All Your Gadgets Have Cases?

I extolled the virtues of having proper laptop protection, here and in the office — so much so that one of my coworkers was afraid to show me her banged-up Pro — but seriously, cover it up! I get to comb the Internet daily for laptop bags and cases, and cases for cell phones, cameras, basically any gadget small and un-awkward enough to cover, so I consider myself an unofficial expert. And yet. . .

Though I recently got a gel case for my BlackBerry, I've been letting my iPhone hang loose in my bag (seriously, you guys, that thing refuses to scratch), and my Nintendo DS? Naked as the day it was born.

I have sewn cases, bought cases, but I don't always practice what I preach (except for on the laptop bag front — you don't mess with that). What about you? Do you have a case for everything: cell phone, laptop, camera, portable game system, iPod?

I have a case for my iPod, because its pretty and because I worry about scratching it to hell. I have yet to buy a case for my Blackberry though, because I've only had it two weeks and havent found one I like enough to shell out the cash for. I have a case for my laptop for traveling, but I rarely take it anywhere so I dont use it much.

No case for my Sansa Clip, it's too small to bother with a case. But my other MP3 players, phone, and camera have cases.

Everything but my phone has a case. I really ought to look around and see if there are Centro cases out now.

Yes- I have the socky kind. That way I can coordinate with my outfits. Sad, I know. :P

I carry my laptop in its case only because I can't just lug the thing around. (but I have on occasion just thrown it in a bag..) I guess I just can't be bothered to accessorize all my gadgets..

i buy gadgets for their looks. it would be like marrying a hot guy then asking him to wear a bag over his head.

I have a Juicy Couture case for my iPod but I'm still looking for a camera case and laptop case/bag that I like. My camera is caseless right now. :(

I only have a case for my laptop I keep my phone and I pod in different compartiments of my bag though as my old I-pod and phone did not go very well together, my phone rubbed the colour off my blue i-pod!!! Should get cases or something but I'm just lazy.

I have a case for everything but my laptop but I rarely take it anywhere so I don't ever think of getting one. I have a huge bag that I use if I do carry it out but its not what I would like to carry it in

I always have my MacBook laptop in a clear plastic cover and travel with it in an Incase sleeve or a Targus briefcase (when I need to bring more stuff). I have my iPhone in an Incase black rubber case. And I carry my various cords and chargers in a small zip bag. Most of the time, I feel like a traveling electronics slow!

Of course, I have a case for my ipod- who doesn't? And after piercing the screen on my first digital camera, my mom made me get a case for the second. However, my cell phone is pretty naked. I've never been able to find a case small enough for it at wal-mart. All they have is razr cases. :(

I have a case for the DS but nothing for the phone (I always end up losing it). I always carry my laptop in its bag. Problem is that I had a external webcam that I had to carry inside the bag too and now the laptop is quite scratched, the poor thing. Still, it works perfectly.

I have a sleeve for my laptop, I put my DS in an unused makeup bag when I'm traveling with it, and I use a home-made case for my camera. My ipod and phone are naked though.

it's pretty much only my ipod that has a case...which is sad. I keep meaning to get an amazing case for my laptop, but it just hasn't happened yet...

no case for my cellphones but I have one for my ipod, I had one for my laptop but not the new one that work gave me. It's too big that a case will already be too heavy
