Unless you expect to keep your laptop on a desk or table and never move it, you need a laptop case. Laptops have fragile parts, especially the LCD, and it's easy to damage this by simply placing a heavy item on the cover when the laptop is closed.

Different lifestyles demand different laptop computer bag styles. Some find a backpack more comfortable, while others prefer messenger bags. Frequent travelers prefer the rolling laptop computer bag style similiar to those often seen in airports. Executives appreciate the wide range of briefcase styles available. Prices range from less than thirty dollars to over three hundred depending on the materials used, the amount of protection offered, and the overall design.
Laptop Computer Bag Buying Tips
Protection First

Keep in mind that while your laptop bag makes a statement about you, its main purpose is to provide protection for your laptop. Choose a laptop case that will protect the screen in the environment that you expect to find yourself most often. Support and protection technology has come a long way in the past few years. There are laptop computer bag with air cushions, memory foam, and removable and configurable foam blocks. No one system is best for everyone.
Price and Style

The price of most notebook computer bags can reflect the amount of protection it offers, the materials it is constructed out of, and the fashion statement it makes. Before making a purchase, try and figure out what your dollars are paying for. An expensive label isn't worth the price if you skimp on utility and end up with costly damage to your laptop. On the fashion front, there are now cases that appear to be standard briefcases, laptop messenger bags, or women's handbags. Inside, however, they are padded to provide excellent protection for your laptop. These have the added benefit of not being obvious targets for theft.
Space Considerations

Laptop carrying case features are important too. Will you need extra room for cables or a portable projector? If you generally travel with an extra battery or flash media cards, make sure that your laptop case has room for those accessories. Also consider your normal traveling needs, such as papers from work and reading material. If your laptop case won't accommodate these, you'll need to bring another bag as well.
