Buying a Rolling Laptop Bag - What Should You Look For?

A rolling laptop bag may be ideal for you if you need to carry around a lot of equipment in addition to your laptop. If you have difficulty carrying a laptop bag on your shoulder you may also want to consider a rolling laptop bag. These types of bags are similar to suitcases with wheels and have an extendible handle to make it easy to pull them around. They are usually well made and durable and although they are may be slightly more expensive than other laptop bags it may be worth spending a little more for the extra convenience.

What to Look For When Buying a Rolling Laptop Bag

One of the most important things when buying a rolling laptop bag is to make sure that it keeps on rolling! You need to check that the wheels are sturdy and made from reinforced plastic or metal. If they look flimsy or their attachments to the bag looks inadequate they will not last very long as wheels can be easily damaged. Have a look at the extendible handle and make sure that this is sturdy as well. Most handles for rolling laptop bags are made from aluminium which is lightweight and tough. Check that it does not look flimsy as it will soon break in use. A simple button is usually used to extend and retract the handle.

The laptop bag should have a well padded compartment for your laptop and extra compartments for your accessories and other equipment. As you are buying a rolling laptop bag to carry extra weight make sure it is big enough for any other things you need to carry around, such as books, papers, calculators etc. Make sure that the padding for the laptop compartment is adequate and the sides are made of stiff material for extra protection. Rolling laptop bags are usually heavier than regular laptop bags so you may want to buy a lighter bag for times when you do not need to carry so much or when you are only travelling short distance.

Rolling laptop Bag Prices And Designs

Prices for rolling laptop bag start at around $100 and can be as much as $250 for a designer bag. They come in all sorts of designs including messenger type laptop bags and bags especially designed for women. They also come in a range of sizes some large enough to accommodate a 17 inch laptop.


Rolling laptop bag may be ideal for you if you have difficulty carrying around a regular laptop bag or if you do a lot of travelling. Be careful when you choose one to make sure that it is large enough for your needs and sturdy enough to last for a long time. Also ensure that it has enough padding to protect your laptop at all times.
