Making Your Laptop's Safety A Priority When Traveling

By: Shannon Hilson

The same thing that makes the laptop so useful is that same thing that makes it most vulnerable - It mobility. You can only be sure of using your laptop for a long time if you do all you should to make sure your laptop is moved around in total safety.

The laptop is very delicate and can be affected by any number of things including but not limited to water, direct hits, excessive vibrations etc. Before embarking on that journey, you would do well to ask yourself some very important questions. These questions are:

* Do I have a water proof laptop case?

Your laptop is as good as gone if you carry it in a laptop case that is not water proof and water gets into it. You should not compromise the water proofing of your laptop case just in case you find yourself exposed to rain and needing to shield your laptop from it.

* Is my laptop case shock proof?

This is very critical. Having your laptop bouncing around in the case is something that should be avoided. Your laptop should be firmly held in its compartment without being too tight. Neither too lose nor too tight. In some cases, Velcro straps are used to hold the laptop in place. Another thing to avoid is vibrations getting to the laptop. This can be avoided by using a laptop case that has good shock absorption. For a long journey, you must use a laptop that has shock absorption.

* Can my laptop case be compressed?

As you travel, you could suddenly find your laptop case buried under other luggage. Your laptop case would be the determinant of whether the weight rests on your laptop directly. As far as I am concerned, the best laptop case is one that would not compress when other luggage fall on it. This is the only type of laptop case that can assure of your laptop's safety while you are on a journey because you can not guarantee that you would constantly watch your laptop case to be sure nothing falls on it.

If you want to go on a long trip or do so very often, you should take it as your task to ensure that you have the right kind of laptop case so that you can be sure of the safety of your laptop at all times.

The laptop case I would choose and recommend for long journeys are Aluminum laptop cases. There are other very good laptop cases but apart from Aluminum laptop cases, I do not know of any other laptop case that can withstand pressure as much. Your laptop deserves to travel in safety so get the right kind of laptop case.
