Hands on with the Peli U100 Urban Elite Laptop Backpack


This isn’t the normal type of product that turns up with us for review but when it was offered I jumped at the chance as it looked so awesome.

The Peli U100 Urban Elite Laptop Backpack is not a cheap option but if you are in the market for a premium product then this thing will knock your socks off. As well as having numerous pockets and compartments, which are all waterproof and dustproof there is also a built in rigid case in the center of the backpack for your laptop which is not only watertight but also crushproof! The case compartment will store up to a 15 inch laptop or a 17 inch MacBook.

The Peli U100 wont be for everyone but if you commute regularly or travel overseas on business this could be a great option for you.

You can check out the video below along with the full specs of the product.

Virgin increases the number of London Underground stations with WiFi


Virgin has recently added a further 20 tube stations to its list of WiFi supported locations with plans to increase to 120 by early next year.

The new stations will coincide with a new pre-pay option. Daily passes are expected to cost £2, weekly passes £5 and monthly passes £15. Virgin signed a deal with Vodafone and EE last month so these charges will be waivered if on either network.

Virgin Media executive director of broadband Jon James said: “WiFi on London Underground has been an incredible success and we’ve rolled out the service to reach even more stations throughout London.

“Our wholesale agreement with EE and Vodafone will keep the majority of Tube users connected for no extra cost and every Londoner and visitor can choose from affordable prepay options with free, up-to-the-minute travel, news and entertainment for everyone.”
