What do you use for a lap top case?

  1. I just purchased a lap top yesterday and now I am looking to buy a cute case for it. I dont know if there any types or brands you would recommend.
     
  2. I use this Diane Von Furstenberg when I travel, because I have the matching carry on. I also have a basic black one from Dell.

  3. I have seen some pretty cute laptop cases from juicy couture and betsey johnson
     
  4. I have an Acme Made case which is really cute and fits like a glove over my laptop. My bag is the Designer Slim, and it has carrying handles and a detachable shoulder strap.

  5. Oh I just remembered! I was at Last Call last weekend, and there were some really great laptop cases by Tumi.
     
  6. Wow, the Acme Made cases are SO cute -- I have been using an Incase sleeve and putting that in my everyday work bag. It might be time for an upgrade and purchase one of the cute Acme's.

  8. Hey Passerby, those are really nice. Especially the last one with a strong oriental feel to it!
     
  9. I use my handbags as laptop cases. My work bags are all large enough for my laptop and my other stuff. I hate carrying more than one bag at a time.
     
  10. Janinevs, would you share which handbags you use in that way? I am interested in big handbags for this very reason. Thanks.
     
  11. I put a foofbag sleeve on mine and then put it in a purse. I have the tiny 12" Apple PowerBook, so it pretty much fits in anything. I'm a big fan of sleeves in general, since they protect the laptop and don't take up much space.
     
  12. ^i would recommend getting a laptop bag rather than using a normal handbag since extra space causes the laptop to fall around and can damage the hardware. laptop cases are designed so that the laptops are cushioned.
