Laptop Backpacks – Carry more than just your computer.

A messenger style laptop case may work well for jaunts to your local coffee shop or internet café, but what about when you need to carry more? Good luck trying to carry a days worth of college school books, a laptop, jacket, and maybe lunch in a messenger bag. If need room for a little more, maybe you should think about a laptop backpack.

The great thing about a laptop backpack is its versatility. Many laptop backpacks can easily be used for both work and play. There are several packs out there that are made for just that. For example, many laptop pockets in a daypack also double as bladder pocket.

As I mentioned before, the best feature of a laptop backpack is the room it offers. With a laptop backpack you have plenty of room for all your school stuff. The main compartment can usually hold your laptop, books, and a jacket. The outer pockets usually have some sort of organizer to help keep pens, keys, money, etc, separated.

When looking at laptop backpacks there are a few things you may want to consider. One of them is the area for the laptop. Is the area padded? Can it be used for something else when not carrying a computer? What’s the maximum size computer it can hold? Another thing to think about is what sort of space does it offer for all your laptop accessories like cables and network cards.
