Some of the top of the range laptop bags feature hidden extras such as built-in battery packs for your iPod to run from, or solar phone chargers to keep your mobile topped up while on the move. There are even computer cases that’ll convert handily into mini mobile desks where you can prop up your notebook as you sit in the park or on the train and carry on working on that important presentation you need for the morning.
Being able to carry your laptop everywhere you go, to meetings and back home, is an essential part of modern life. Now that Wi-Fi hot spots are readily available and the technology has advanced so far as to allow you to connect to the internet, send files, check and send email and even video conference while on the move. Some of the main train companies in the UK have installed free Wi-Fi on the trains so workers who commute to and from the countryside to the city don’t lose any time on their jobs if any delays occur, a frequent problem on many London bound routes.
Lap top bags are made to protect your computer from damage while in transit. The outer material is thick, durable and reinforced and the edges and corners in case of bashing or bumps. Inside the bags are normally heavily padded pockets with straps to hold the computer firmly in place. They also have several internal pockets and specially shaped sleeves to hold wires, pens, phones, adaptors and disks. You can even buy a laptop bag that has scientifically manufactured material to keep your computer in cool in hot weather. Excessive heat can damage internal wiring and cards and prevent it from working correctly. Buying a bag that disguises the fact that you have an expensive piece of technology about your person will also help to avoid it being stolen.
However you travel whether it’s by bike, bus, train or car, having a good quality laptop bag to carry and protect your computer is essential these days.
