Bottom Line

The Sena Wallet Skin iPhone case is a stylish, luxury cover that can also handle light wallet duties and so could free you from pocket clutter. Even as a secondary wallet it's good-looking enough for people to love its looks as much as those of the Apple iPhone inside.

I've never been one for the gripping silicon iPhone sleeves. I want my iPhone case to have the look of a luxury wallet rather than of a Marigold washing up glove.

I did try the Apple Italian Leather cases, but it wasn't much more than an expensive iPod Sock.

The Sena Wallet Skin doesn't just look like an expensive wallet - it is one!

This calfskin Napa leather iPhone 3GS case has four pockets for credit or business cards, including one with a window for ID. This iPhone case therefore holds out the possibility of replacing my wallet altogether.

Currently my wallet holds four bank cards, an Oyster London travel pass, my office entrance swipe and a few business cards. Could all these fit in the Sena Wallet Skin?

My first challenge to the case was will it work with the Oyster card, and it easily passed both bus and tube swipes.

I was less lucky with the office swipe, as it's larger than a credit card and so stuck out ruining the look of the wallet case.

The four bank cards was also a little too much for the Wallet Skin. It could handle three cards, but the third would cover up the case's camera hole, which would mean removing a card when you wanted to use the iPhone's camera.

So unless I carry just a couple of bank cards around this isn't going to let me leave my old wallet at home.

However if you're a two card-carrying person or one bank card, one travel pass and a few business cards, the Sena Wallet Skin is going to leave one of your pockets free of a second wallet.

A colleague who also tried out the Sena Wallet Skin found it too bulky, but he's a silicon-glove type of iPhone user. He did admire the fine leather styling, though, and thought it would make an excellent iPhone case for a stylish woman's handbag.

Another friend and prestigious tech blogger wouldn't be without his for all the business cards in the world. Read his review of the Sena Wallet Skin here.

My previous iPhone cases have included a protective flap to cover the screen. The Wallet Skin doesn't have a flap, but I soon appreciated the instant access the case offers the touchscreen phone user.

The case does have a rigid protective layer to reinforce backbone support.

The Sena Wallet Skin is available in nine plain case colours: Black (pictured), Tan, Red, Baby Blue, Green, Orange, Brown, White, and Pink; plus four colours in a lovely crocodile-leather style - Black (pictured), Red (pictured), Burgundy and Tan.

It comes with a removable ratcheting metal belt-clip, but thankfully this doesn't ruin the look when not in place. Does anyone still wear their phone on their belt?

The Sena Wallet Skin costs US$52 plus $9.95 international shipping from the US.

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.

This smart laptop was enjoyable to use and great to work on – creating content was super simple.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

Jack Jeffries

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

Taylor Carr

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
