Looking For New Lappy Bag !

I am thinking of buying a nice new Laptop bag that is trendy and fun. Anyone got any suggestions? I have a roshiba 15 4 widescreen if that helps!

as far as I'm concerned. I've tried lots of them in my time, and this one beats them all, hands down.

It's great-fits in a laptop charger as well and also other paperwork, plus, it doesn't look like a laptop bag from the outset. I'd recommend tech air-their bags seem really sturdy, especially when compared to some of the bags in PC World. Plus they're cheaper too, and you get at 3 months free iTrak. There is a code on the bag, and a sticker for your laptop, so if someone ever finds it they can email iTrak the code who will then pass the location of the bag onto you.

Whatever you do, buy online, as its much cheaper than stores. Feel free to have a look round somestores though, to get an idea for what you might want.

lay in the bag being recognisably the cheapest available.

The logic being that with so little being spent on the bag, the lappy inside was likely to be worth little.

The same goes for suitcases. The Prada ones have the best goodies inside!

Thanks for the replies. My budget was to spend under £50. The tech air ones look nice and not too obviously a laptop bag! The one i have my eyes on is this

I agree with wee eddie. I travel loads, my laptop is in a scruffy back pack, student type back packs around now, cheap, with laptop section plus sections for pens, files etc.

I have often thought that having a bag with Targus/Dell etc was the same as saying Mug Me.

I was on the Docklands railway once when 2 large gents sat down oppisite. One had a laptop, neither knew how to open it! They asked me if I knew how to. I pleaded ignorance. They got off after a couple of stops. I have often wondered wether it was theirs and if I would have still had my £2k worth of lap top if my bag had Targus written on it!

As bugle says, get something nondescript.

A Tesco Bag for Life (10p) would suit me.

Don't advertise what you have got!

I have a friend who has a very successful business and he takes all his cash takings to the bank in a silly carrier bag. Never been mugged yet.
