How Often Do You Expect to Be Carrying Your Laptop?
Laptops, by nature, are portable, but that does not mean you will need to carry it around every day. If you need to travel occasionally, and your laptop is necessary on your trips, you may have other equipment you want to bring with it, especially if your normal computer is a desktop. If you have an external keyboard to make typing easier, a portable hard drive, cables, a laptop lock and more, then you will not want a sleeve that just fits snugly around the laptop.
If you will be traveling by air, a laptop bag which can be opened easily to display to airport security is imperative. You want to move smoothly through the line, and you want to be able to show your laptop and yet be able to get it packed up again quickly. While bags that offer those features may not be cheap, they are worth making your traveling hassle free.
If you bring your laptop to class or work daily, a sturdy comfortable laptop bag is best. When you do this much traveling, you probably will not be toting an ultra-large around, and you probably also have streamlined the amount of equipment you find essential.
If you travel, but do not have to carry your laptop a long distance before you put it down, and do not have to worry about taking through an airport, a messenger style bag may be the best type of laptop bag for you. Some have extra pockets, some have other features. Even among messenger bags, there is variety, so check out the choices.
