Targus, $69.95, targus.com.au
★★★ POWER laptop users who can’t leave home without a computer should protect their precious laptop with a bag that won’t add to their burden. The Targus Unofficial Laptop Backpack is made from lightweight material and features air-mesh padding for ventilation and protection on all sides. Inside, zippered compartments store loose objects like wallets, keys and change, and pen loops are available too. There are also zippered pockets on the front of the bag for objects you need to access quickly. The Unofficial Laptop Backpack also has a padded shoulder strap, a back panel and a handle. BELKIN’S Laptop Messenger looks like a conservative briefcase but it doesn’t lack storage space. Inside, there is a padded laptop capsule suited to computers up to 16 inches in size, as well as a quick-access pocket on the front flap and another Velcroheld pouch on the rear. There is also space for miniature pockets beside pen loops. Accessing the inside compartments is made easier with a zipper opening that lets the front of the bag tilt forward for easy access. Users can choose to carry the bag using either the removable padded shoulder strap or a soft foam carry handle.
