Question 2 outlet (notebook) surge protector?

We have two notebooks that are often plugged directly into a household outlet...all day long while we are away. For protection I would like a small. readily available surge protector that can accomodate two plugs. Any suggestions?

I just picked up 3 surge protecting electrical outlets for under $40 each at a certain big box home improvement centre with an orange logo .

They replace your existing outlet and are wired the exact same way. They offer surge protection without the bulk of a standard surge protector.

They're great for small spaces or when you want a clean look. I'm going to use them for behind my wall mounted plasma and home theater setup.

You can get the Belkin surge suppressor (pic below) for laptops. It has 2 outlets (one on each side) and includes suppression for RJ45 (ethernet) too.

I got mine from dell's online store for less than 20 bucks. The wall plug folds into the body which makes it easy to carry on trips.
