One of the main factors that define a laptop is its portability, allowing working on the go, wherever and whenever you wish. However, this versatility comes with risks, and while most laptops can survive a few knocks and bumps, a laptop case really is a necessity.
With most cases, naturally, being size-specific, a 17’’ laptop case should fit your larger laptop perfectly. However, what else should you look for in a good laptop case?
What to look for when buying a new 17’’ laptop case?
- Durability: The material must be hard-wearing, and the case should have reinforced corners and double stitching.
- Weather resistance: The laptop case should have the ability to survive a rainstorm, keeping the contents completely dry and protected
- Security: There should be options to attach a padlock, or locks incorporated into the case design.
- Comfort: The case must be comfortable to carry without being unwieldy
- Value for money: When the factors are evaluated against the price tag, this produces an accurate balance expressed as value for money.

Unashamedly professional, Taygeer’s addition to the laptop bag market is designed to be more briefcase than slim, figure hugging laptop case. The multi-functional zippered compartments mean you’ve got plenty of room for peripheries, cell, pens and more. With the well thought out shoulder strap, however, the weight is evenly distributed, and unnoticeable – all in all, a great design.
