To carry a laptop you really need a backpack – it’s so much better for your back. The advantage to a backpack style bag to carry your laptop in is that you can carry it hands free. Also having it across your back distributes the weight a little more comfortably. I personally like the one shown above: a bag that has style as well as function. The sleek design hides numerous inside pockets so you can stay organised and yes – it does hold your laptop (up to 15 inch).
A Tablet And Laptop Pack
This handy backpack has a lot of features but the most important is the dedicated pockets and compartments for your tablet or iPad along with a space for your laptop. There are foam padded panels that will hold other electronics, too. It is made of nylon so it will stand up to the elements and it is priced nicely, too.
This Bag is HUGE – you can carry your whole office on your back, should you want to, including your 15 inch laptop.
Modern Styled Backpack that carries a smaller Laptop (up to 13 inch) (and more)
The styling is modern and the functions are spot on. Fleece lined pockets to hold tablets like the iPad, smartphones and netbooks make this a good choice in a backpack for men. The zippers are reflective so that this is a safe one to use at night. A compartment to store a water bottle and so much more.
Backpack Style Laptop Bags
The laptop top compartment in this bag will hold a 13 inch, 14 inch laptop or 15 inch Macbook securely. It also offers a front pocket to hold your cell phone, accessories, MP player and other needed items. A top zippered pocket is lined with a material like felt that is perfect for a pair of sunglasses. This backpack styled bag comes in three color options: black, dark gray and red.
High Sierra Access Backpack
This backpack by High Sierra has everything:

- A great place for a water bottle
Floral Backpack Bag – laptop compartment
And if you don’t use it to full capacity, you can simply pull the cords on the side and it becomes smaller.
The previous laptops were all suitable for both men and women, being pretty much gender-neutral. This one isn’t. If you think that orange is a bit much, there are also versions with a more sedate color-scheme.
Pretty design for ladies to carry their 17 (!) inch laptop in along with other computing essentials. Carry by hand or the two adjustable straps. Weather resistant nylon cloth for when it is raining or snowing. Compartments inside and on the front of the bag give plenty of options for carrying things with you. Flap buckles on the outside for additional security.
Rolling Laptop Backpacks
Targus Rolling Notebook Backpack – For laptops up to 16 inch, Macbook up to 17 inch
This is the rolling laptop case with the best reviews. Really: a LOT of people love this bag. The only reason it’s not first on my list it’s as light as it gets: 4 pounds.
Available in gray, gray and gray, this is a slightly boring bag, though I like the red details. But perhaps boring is good: less attractive to laptop thieves.
- Rear Protective Flap holds shoulder straps in place so straps are secure when the case is used in roller mode
- Padded handle and shoulder straps for ease of transport
- Handle grip on the bottom of the case allows for easier lifting into the car or airline overhead compartment
- Protective PVC material on bottom of case repels water
- Storage options throughout the backpack
