Protecting expensive equipment while traveling is the primary goal of any laptop-focused backpack or briefcase. Aesthetics are subjective; individuals’ style ranges widely. Some prefer flamboyant or easily spotted colors, while others want something rustic and classy. Booq’s Boa Brief briefcase leans towards the latter. It’s subtle and bold, appearing understated but being functionally useful and focused on its primary goal: protect the stuff. ThinkComputers takes a look…

We have already looked at 2 bags from Speck, the CorePack Fly and the PortPack. Today we will be looking at a 3rd bag from them, the AftPack. While the CorePack Fly was a messenger bag and the PortPack was a shoulder bag the AftPack is a backpack. Backpacks are great for people who want to protect their laptop, but also need to the room to carry large text books and other larger items. Read on as we check out the AftPack from Speck.
When most people think of laptop bags they think of the typical messenger bags, probably because that is usually all they sell in stores like Best Buy. Even though messenger bags are probably the most popular type of laptop bag, many companies make shoulder bags. Ever since I started reviewing laptop bags I’ve really come to appreciate shoulder bags because they are perfect for going to coffee shops and other places where you really don’t need a huge bag to carry a lot of gear. Today we will be taking a look at a really cool shoulder bag from Speck, the PortPack.
One of the biggest pains of traveling is going through security. I hate having to always take my laptop out of my bag. Usually my bag is stuffed with gear so its always a struggle to get it out without something getting into the way. Lately we have seen many companies come out with “checkpoint safe” laptop bags that make it so you don’t have to take out your laptop when going through security. The thing about these bags is that they are noit attractive at all. This is where Speck comes in with the CorePack Fly bag, which is available in 2 very attractive colors.
Most of the Lowepro bags we have taken a look at have been smaller bags mainly used for small day trips or for going to conferences. Today we have the biggest camera bag we have ever looked at, the Pro Trekker 300 AW. This bag is made for outdoor photographers, extreme sports shooters and serious enthusiasts who need a workhorse backpack that travels well—in rugged terrain or by air. This bag not only fits your camera and accessories, but also your notebook. Let’s take a look at the Pro Trekker 300 AW and see if it is the perfect camera bag for you.
When I’m looking for a good laptop bag there are 3 things I look for, quality, style, and size. I want something that is going to last, looks good, and is not too large or too small.

It is designed to be a compact and lightweight bag for 11-13-inch notebooks that is also meant to carry a few accessories as well. Let’s take a look and see if this is the perfect bag for your daily travels.
