If you find yourself working in a host of different environments, it’s incredibly wise to invest in something that allows you to switch workstations with ease.
Those who do work in a variety of locations may need to carry not only their laptops around with them but a keyboard, mouse and laptop stand too.
This is why a good laptop bag is a necessity for so many law professionals.
Laptops can be as heavy as 4 kilos. Once you have added peripherals like a mouse and a keyboard to your bag alongside various types of documentation, the load can reach up to 6 kilos. If you are carrying a particularly heavy load around, you may wish to invest in a laptop backpack rather than a laptop bag. Opting for the former can protect your posture due to the way that the backpack will rest on both of your shoulders. When it comes to muscle tension, there will be more even distribution across the left and right of your body.
Health specialists say you shouldn’t travel more than 90 meters with a bag that weighs between 4 – 6 kilos. If you do need to travel a longer distance, it’s recommended that you opt for a trolley. This is because the strain on your body will be reduced.
If you are weighing up the pros and cons of a briefcase, shoulder bag, backpack or trolley, you’ll need to think about what the bag will be used for the most. Think about whether you’ll be walking long distances with your bag and whether you’ll be cycling to work.
If you’re a public transport user, a laptop backpack or sleeve could be ideal for you. However, it can place strain on your back if you’ll be walking long distances on foot. Trolleys are great for those who do walk for long distances and head out on business trips, but it can be hard to transport them up and down various flights of stairs.
Laptop backpacks are backpacks which come with a special compartment for storing your laptop. It can protect your laptop from damage and dirt, and offers various compartments for computer accessories. The shoulder straps that come as part of laptop backpacks make them ideal for those who use public transport, walk or cycle. This is because they distribute weight evenly across both of your shoulders.
Laptop sleeves are protective covers that fit around your laptop. They can also protect your laptop from dirt and damage. If you want to protect your laptop without using a large, heavy backpack, a sleeve could be the right option for you. One of the downsides of using a sleeve is that there won’t be lots of room for your accessories.
Laptop trollies can be regarded as the ideal compromise between a laptop bag and a travel trolley. If you spend a great deal of time travelling, this could be the perfect option for you. A laptop trolley offers quality protection during travel. You’ll also have a lot of space for storing your documents and preventing damage. A trolley could be the best option for you if you need to walk a long distance. You also won’t need to worry about your back if you’re using a laptop trolley. You can normally include your laptop trolley as part of your carry-on luggage when you’re travelling on a plane. However, we do advise that you check that your trolley doesn’t exceed their maximum dimensions.

Once you have decided upon the kind of laptop bag you’re interested in, make sure there is enough space for your laptop. If the compartment is too big, your laptop may move around too much and become damaged. If it is too small, you won’t be able to fit it in the space. Check which sizes are available before you go ahead and purchase a laptop bag. You also need to know how big your laptop is. It’s to find out not only what the size of your screen is but what the full length, width and depth of your machine are too.
If you’re not sure how big your laptop is, you can use a tape measure to find out. Measure it diagonally. If the tape measure only shows you centimeters, you can go online and convert these to inches. Some laptops have sizeable edges around their displays. This means a laptop with a 15-inch screen might not fit into a 15-inch bag and you’ll need to pick a bigger option.
