How to choose (pick) laptop bag - which laptop bag to choose

The protection of the laptop and the convenience when moving it are of the same concern to the buyer as the choice of the laptop itself. In this article we will consider what you should pay attention to if you decide to buy a "cover" for your device.

Bag size

Each laptop has its own matrix size and thickness, so the important point when you need to pick up a bag is the choice according to these parameters. The bag must fit the size of your laptop. If it is larger than the size of the device or it moves freely around the bag, then the level of security of the device will decrease.

It is not necessary that a 15 "laptop bag will not fit a 14" or 16 "laptop. Here you need to take into account that laptops with different diagonals have the same dimensions. Alternatively, a 15 '' laptop can be thinner than a gaming laptop with the same display size.


The materials used to make a laptop bag must meet the following criteria:

  • keep in shape;
  • additionally protect against side impacts;
  • be durable and waterproof.

Bags made of plastic, polyester and nylon are now common. In the last two versions, protective metal or plastic frames are used; they better protect the device from external influences and getting wet.

Physical protection

It depends on the material of the bag and the cushioning air baffles. Reinforced walls prevent direct contact with the laptop during an impact, and the tightness of the casing protects against water ingress and severe hypothermia in the cold. The density of the cladding material is measured in denier units, the optimal indicator is considered to be 500-1000 denier.

On many models, additional air side compartments are available to better protect against physical contact. For protection, there are reinforced nets that are used to sew the entire body of the bag, as well as a rigid frame. The latter, if necessary, is ordered armored.


Each bag has its own number and size of compartments with pockets in which it is convenient to carry devices and laptop accessories (for example, a power supply). Its dimensions may vary from laptop to laptop.

Also, do not forget about external accessories such as a mouse, external hard drive, etc. For all this, the owner will need a certain number of departments. The main compartment has straps for better stability of the laptop itself. Each bag, like a computer, has a different weight, therefore, when buying, pay attention to this.


Each person has his own image. Modern laptop bag manufacturers have taken this into account. As a result, bags fall into several categories:

  • case - for business people who like a strict style;
  • backpack - for active or extreme people. Youth option;
  • folder - saves a laptop, has a number of compartments for documents;
  • a portfolio is a classic and popular option. Has a number of pockets, serves as a portable office. Available - additional shoulder strap.

Laptop bags come in a variety of colors. The buyer has the opportunity to choose a bag of his favorite color.

Netbook bags can be selected for the same characteristics listed above. They are not large and compact. They have little space for extra things.
