Using laptop@ college? put it in your backpack? carrying case?

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
When you guys who are students use your laptop at high school or college, do you put it in your back pack?

Do you find that your other books squash your laptop etc..?

Do you put it in your backpack but still use a "sleeve case"?

Or do you just carry it in your hand or use a separate carrying case specific for the notebook?

Please let me know, this year will be the first year I will be using a notebook computer and I dont want my heavy Biology or Chemistry books to sqaush it and damage the monitor nor do I want to get scratches on it.

I usually carry a "messenger" style backpack.

I use backpack with laptop compartment

With my old crappy Acer I just put it in and the books just smashes it. 0 Problems.

With my new Lenovo, I put in a neoprene sleeve then put it into the backpack compartment.

i use a neoprene sleeve. i just slide my laptop in it and then place it in my backpack closest to my back and just be careful not to toss or man handle your backpack while its in there.

I use my backpack with a sleeve inside. Have had bunch of books and other heavy miscellaneous items and my laptop is fine. Might want to get some sort of sleeve for it though, seeing how I did get hairline scratches on the glossy top of my laptop.
