Bags & Briefcases
Laptop bags and sleeves protect your sensitive electronics against minor abrasion damage or the elements. These tools fit over your laptop to keep out dirt, dust, and debris. This helps ensure the longevity of your systems and keep laptop screens free of scratches and discoloration. Many laptop and messenger bags have sling-style shoulder straps that offer hands-free carry options and are easy to take off or put on. Frequent travelers may want to consider bags designed to simplify air travel, such as those that have easy-to-open zippered compartments that speed up security inspections.
Many laptop bags have locking zippers that allow you to protect your system while in transport. Others work with common computer locks to attach the bag and laptop to desks or counters securely to prevent theft. If you fly regularly, check out TSA-approved locks and other travel accessories designed to keep the contents of your bag safe against theft.
Laptop sleeves feature a cushioned interior that absorbs minor impacts, allowing them to cradle your laptop and protect against minor drops or bumps. The cushioned interior also helps prevent scratching, ensuring the surface of your laptop will not be damaged as you travel. Laptop bags often feature a similarly cushioned interior or the option to place a sleeve in the laptop compartment along with the electronic device.
Laptop bags feature multiple compartments that allow them to double as briefcases or let you pack along a bevy of accessories and peripheral devices. These compartments may have their own zippers and hook-and-loop closures for secure or easy access. Some sleeves also feature compartments for extra memory cards or USB-powered devices.
