Virtually everyone has a laptop computer these days and we all need to bring it with us when we’re traveling or moving around the city.  A multitude of laptop bags are available but come with some problematic issues:  First, they look like computer bags and this advertises the fact that you’re probably carrying an expensive computer which can be an easy target for theft.  Many people prefer a bag that allows them to bring a laptop with a bit more subtlety that may allow them to escape from being the victims of street crime.  Second, most laptop bags are ugly and unstylish, and meant for people who like boxy black bags instead of sleek designer bags.  In summary, many people are frustrated with the selection they find in the computer bag section of their local store.

Many people are starting to carry their laptops in a messenger bag instead.  These bags are often shaped like a laptop, and are easy to get your laptop into and out of.  Often, they even have a built-in sleeve which is meant to separate your precious laptop from other stuff in the bag such as your papers, water bottle and wallet.  These bags will blend in better than your typical computer bag, and won’t scream to thieves that you are an easy target carrying an expensive computer: most messenger bag users are students who will be carrying books and papers instead of computers.  They also come in a broad range of styles in which you can express your one-of-a-kind personality instead of the dismal gray computer bags that most stores offer.
