Whether we like it or not, technology has become an essential part of our lives. We rely on our phones for navigation, socialization, and entertainment. We rely on TVs for news and a good laugh. And many of us rely on our laptops (or tablets) for work. Laptops, while reliable in their function, are not reliable in their durability, which makes it tricky to travel with them on trips. Not to worry though. With the proper luggage, you can travel comfortably with your laptop safely tucked away. I’ve brainstormed a few tips for you when deciding how to choose the right bag for your laptop.
Functionality over Style
While we all want to travel in style, it’s more important to be practical when buying a bag that’s designed to protect your laptop and other technology. There’s not much use in getting a bag with a fashionable print if you’re going to have a broken laptop at the end of the trip. Fortunately, in most cases you can find a bag that flaunts function and style. Just make you’re keeping your priorities straight.
Office or Travel?
Consider having a different bag for the office than for when you’re on your traveling excursions. Driving to work isn’t nearly as dangerous for your laptop as it is when your laptop is going through security and loading docks, so you’ll have different safety needs. And on top of that, you’ll have different storage needs for when you’re traveling as opposed to when you’re heading into the office. Having separate bags allows you to tailor your bag to your travel needs.
Consider Your Packing Items
When you’re traveling with your laptop, what other things do you need to bring with it? To you have papers you need to bring with you? Do you also carry a tablet? Do you need chargers for both? All of these things impact what type of bag you decide to get. Brainstorm the things you’ll need so you can make a purchase you’re confident in.
