Product Review - Zero-Halliburton Z5
by Mitchell Levine

A few months ago, I bought a computer. The next day, as I walked to work, every mobile-userís worst nightmare came to pass: the backpack-style case that came with it burst open because of a defective zipper. I watched helplessly as my new possession smashed into the pavement.

Typically, in this scenario, the contents of the mobile computer are obliterated. I was lucky; my computer only suffered a few scratches. However, my next purchase was the Zero-Halliburton Z5 computer case.

Made of sleek, die-hardened aluminum, the Zero case looks like it was built to accessorize a vintage Delorean convertible. Stylish looks, special padding and velcro straps and hinges are excellent features. Testing confirms that the computer is protected from drops of up to 60 feet.

Given the incredible strength of the Z5, I was amazed at how lightweight it was. The unit is well insulated, providing protection from both sub-freezing and broiling climates.

For any mobile computer user who needs to insure the safety of an investment of time, money and critical information this product is probably a better investment than insurance. And, most importantly, it looks cool. #
