College Students...?
 
For all those college students, what cases/bags do you recommend for laptops?

Pics and links are greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Most people with laptops don't bring their computers to class... you look like a silly nerd.

I think a lot of people use either messenger bag type cases, or get a backpack with a laptop sleeve. I know a guy that puts his ibook in a taped up pizza box filled with bubble wrap, I say just go to a store that has cases and see which one you like best. I have a targus messenger bag type case and I like it, but when I get a lot of stuff in it, it gets pretty heavy. Im about to buy a targus backpack that has a sleeve for a 17" laptop, so ill probably start using that.

Acually, I thought so too, but there are a ton of people in my courses (pol. science) that bring laptops to lectures and quite a few to our tutorials & courses as well...

A suprisingly large number of them have macs!

I'd get something inconspicuous. Personally I just use a neoprene sleeve in a regular shoulder bag.

I have the DC|Incase Skatebag with a Bitolithic Neoprene Sleeve. The backpack is made to hold a laptop, ipod, accessories, books, and a skateboard. It works perfect for me since I have all of those things.

I have a columbia messenger bag with a built in laptop compartment. It doesn't look like a computer bag so graphite and all his bully friends won't kick sand in my face :oneye:

actually a requirement to brinig your thinkpad (school provided but you actually pay more in tuition) to class when i went to school....boy was i glad that i was out before they forced a thinkpad down my throat.

laptops in class is a double edge sword because yes you can take notes and follow along with powerpoint slides etc....but you can also play solitair, WoW, etc.etc.etc. and thats what i saw most kids doinog

as for bags? any old bag will do. some have laptop compartments in them but i have found with mine (because i bring this backpack everywhere) that i got some sand in the bottom and it scratched my book a lil bit. if your bag doenst have its own compartment you can always purchase a sleeve and put it in your bag like any other book you would carry around.

i personally like chrome brand messenger bags, they sell a sleeve for them but im not sure if they have compartments. one day i will own one of them once i can afford it.

good day

Just get one of them messenger bags; many use 'em and they seem to work well... not for me though.

IMO, I think its a good idea to bring your lappy to class, at leats for me. I type faster then I write so I can take much better notes.
