We all aspire for win-win situations. Here’s one. You can look fashionable and stylish wearing the Komen MicroFiber Tote and at the same time be giving to the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation. Mobile Edge has pledged to donate 10% of the proceeds from the sale to the foundation. Mobile Edge designed five computer tote styles for their Caring Case Collection, The Komen Milano, The Komen Microfiber Tote, The Komen Pink Suede Tote, The Komen Pink Leather Tote, and The Komen Paris Computer Backpack.

It is about time that a company has taken on the mission to design a computer bag that offers style, innovation and protection for the 52% women who buy Consumer Electronics in the US. Good-bye forever, boring, masculine looking computer bags for me. Mobile Edge states that The Caring Case Collection was designed “for women, by women, and for the benefit of women.” The Komen MicroFiber Tote is stylish and functional. You would never know I was carrying my Apple 15" PowerBook in it. The design I wanted to review was The Komen Milano (all pink) bag but it was my fault that I didn’t specify that model.

The model I received, The Komen MicroFiber Tote is absolutely gorgeous. It looks more expensive that it is. It is made of a durable black material with pink handles and pink body trim sporting a detachable Pink-Ribbon keychain. It has a well-padded computer protection compartment, which is also removable for dual functionality. I removed the insert completely for the sake of this review and found it very fashionably made of a shiny silky material that feels waterproof or at least weather resistant although Mobile Edge makes no claims it is so.

Komen MicroFiber Tote I can wrap my laptop with the included microfiber bag for additional scratch protection, designed in white and pink, to carry the laptop alone in this bag and leave the tote to carry all my other stuff. The steel tips at the bottom of the bag keep it off the floor and sitting up straight. The bag has lots of useful pockets, my favorites are the “detachable cosmetic/accessory pouch,” the interior zippered pocket and the outside EZ access pocket. The care and attention to detail, quality, and style are commendable.

I wanted to publish this review in October for breast cancer awareness month. However, no matter what month, any woman or friend who wants to contribute financially to help cancer research can do so by giving a bag from MobileEdge’s, The Caring Case Collection, as a gift for a special occasion to a breast cancer survivor or to herself while supporting breast cancer research. What is there not to love? One more thing...the Online Apple Store sells only this reviewed model where it qualifies for free shipping.
