Hey guys,
Just wondering... Is there waterproof casing  for laptops??? Just in case la, coz I usually bring my laptop when I go diving ( to transfer photos, watch DVD etc)...

Thanks bijan,,,
I have checked it out,,, it must be heavy and big... defeats de purpose of buying a small laptop (9.5" x 11" only)....didn't want to lug somethin heavy all around.... :(

guess better get more /bigger XD card to last the whole trip la :)

zzz,

what i normally do when i decide to bring my laptop along on dive trips is that i put it in a neoprene case and pack it together with my dry clothes in my back pack. tho i will admit that it is more to protect it from those minor bumps it will go through in transit.

If i am very paranoid about it getting wet, i usually pack my lappie in a dry bag, as i do with my other electronic items like chargers, psp, mp3 player etc)

hope it helps.

Atuk!

Would you want to experiment on this thing. Last trip in Redang you've got some prototype for your strobe.
