8 Laptop bags that are sure to improve your daily commute
Most laptop bags share the same dull design and uninspiring features. But these carriers all offer something a little bit different – whether that's eye-catching style or exceptional ergonomics.
- Should I get a shoulder bag or a laptop backpack? A shoulder bag might be more convenient for shorter journeys. A backpack will be more comfortable for longer trips.
- Are laptops measured diagonally? Yes, they are. If you’re not sure how big your machine is, measure from one top corner to the opposite bottom corner.
- Will my 15.6-inch laptop fit in a bag made for 15-inch laptops? It should do. Most laptops that are described as 15 inches are actually 15.6 inches.
You won’t see any laptop bag taking center stage at a big tech event. But for daily commuters and regular travelers, there is nothing more important than having a good computer carrier. If you’re thinking about an upgrade, take a look at this selection of cutting-edge laptop bags.
