Finding the Right Laptop Bag for You

Aug 2, 2008
If you have a laptop then you probably are aware how important it is to have the proper bag for your computer. When it comes to computer bags things have changed so much in the last few years. It used to be that people all had the same looking black carrying case - now laptop bags come in just about any color or pattern imaginable. It is all about making certain fashion and personality statements.

If you have not purchased a bag for your laptop or one did not come with the computer when you bought it you are probably wondering how to pick the best bag for your computer. The good news is that this is a relatively simple process but there are a few things that you need to keep in mind before you decide on the bag that you think is perfect for your laptop. In the rest of this article you will learn what you need to know before you buy.

The first thing you need to think about is size. If you are unsure how big your computer it you can look at the manuals and papers that came with it or you can take a measuring tape and measure diagonally from one corner of your screen to another. You should get a number between ten and twenty. Most laptops are around fourteen to fifteen inches but you can buy them in many different sizes.

When you know what size bag you will need you will also want to make sure that it has spaces and pockets for all of your accessories. You would not want to buy a bag that says it will fit your computer only to find out that you cannot at least put your power cord inside with your laptop. If you cannot fit what you need in your laptop bag there is really no need to have it. Therefore, it is best to buy a bag that will fit your computer and all your accessories.

Another important thing you need to consider is material and how much protection a bag can offer your computer. Some of the cheapest bags will offer little protection, some offer water protection but that is about it. However, if you are looking for a bag that will protect your computer at least a little you are going to spend a bit more than $20. If you are looking for a bag that will protect and hold everything you need you could be looking at spending between $30 and $60 depending on what you are looking.

Most laptop bags are made of nylon and foam. You can also find some bags that are made from the same waterproof material that wet suits are made from. The materials come in several different styles, colors and fabrics. You really have to think about what you are looking for and what your needs are. You cannot just go out and buy the first laptop bag you see on the store shelf.
