Laptop Travel Cases

Monday, August 14, 2006

Like many of you, I have finally found a laptop case I love. It's actually a backpack, which makes me look a bit like a slacker-turned-50, but when you're running through Frankfurt to catch your flight it's every bit as much a revelation as the suitcase on wheels was compared to your hanging bag.

But that is a no-go now that you might have to check your laptop at any given time. Certainly I couldn't check my laptop at LHR in this soft sided thing. And my rollaboard isn't much more useful.

I checked with our expenses guys (Fortune 500 company, guess where they sit?) and hardsided bags (Pelican, etc) aren't allowed due to the >$200 cost. They suggested I encrypt my data before checking, which is wonderful for the company but doesn't do me much good when I get hit for $500 for destroying a laptop. Plus not having a laptop.

I'm guessing a lot of people (certainly not *moi*) will be booting nice hard cases.
