Usually when it comes to protecting your laptop you have the choice of a laptop bag and a laptop 'skin'. The Port Beirut Laptop Carrying Case is a mixture of the two, offering the benefits of both the aforementioned alternatives. This was one of those typical Amazon purchases, something I came across whilst browsing their huge range of products. Priced at around £12 it wasn't particularly expensive and I am always looking for new ways to store my laptop away either for in the house or whilst I am out and about.
First impressions were that the case looking pretty smart in its plain black colour. The design is clearly well thought out and made of polyester. To the top edge of the carrying case is a strong and robust handle which gives both confidence in its construction and comfort whilst carrying it around. I don't store a lot of weight in the case, but if you are carrying it around on a journey it is nice to have a comfortable carrying handle. Although the plain black design may not suit some people, I like the fact it is quite discreet, and althought there is no hiding the fact there is a laptop in the case it doesn't draw immediate attention.
The carrying case is designed to accommodate laptops with a 16" screen and mine fits in neatly as it measures in at 15.6". The fit isn't too snug, but also isn't too big and therefore prevents it from rattling around in a large area and potentially damaging it. The carrying case has room to store other items internally, and has safety straps to hold the laptop firmly in place. Inside the case there is room to store documents, with a pocket on the opposite side to the laptop in this clamshell case. The zip runs round three sides of the case, allowing you to get good accessibility to the main compartment, there is also a pocket to the front of the carrying case for further storage if you so desire. I like to use the internal compartment much more, though, and often only carry items such as an optical mouse and a few papers.
The case comes with a carrying strap which gives you the option to carry it on your shoulder and adds a further safety element. You can clip or un-clip this strap, so you don't need to leave it attached if you don't require its use. Everything about the case gives me confidence that it is built to last. Although it is very affordably priced it has still been designed very well and I love the layout of the internal store space. Weighing around half of 1kg it isn't very heavy, but it has stood up to wear and tear, whereas in the past I have had cases that scuff very easily and give no confidence in the protection they offer my laptop.
If you are looking for an affordable laptop carrying case then look no further than the Port Beirut Laptop carrying Case, this very reasonably priced product will protect your valuable equipment safe on the move.
This is a nice carrying bag for a laptop. It can often be found for around £20, although can be found cheaper on Amazon (and you could even use Dooyoo vouchers!).
It is the typical design of a laptop bag - it has the handle at the top and can be unzipped to place the laptop inside - the laptop can then be secured into place using the strips of fabric with velcro which cover it to ensure it is not damaged. It also has a strap which can be detatched, which goes over your shoulder to carry the bag.
The bag is big enough for a 16" laptop I believe - this fits perfectly although slightly smaller may be okay, although not such a good fit.
There is a big pocket on the outside - this could be used to store things like dongles, or documents which you need with you.
This is a nice laptop bag and for a good price too - it is durable and looks and feels good quality. Although I would definitely recommend it, I don't feel that it is superior to any other cases I have looked at, although I don't think you would be disappointed if you purchased it.
Port Beirut Laptop carrying case.
I was looking for a good birthday present not so long ago for my partner as he's the man who has everything so to speak and is so hard to buy something different for him. Then I came across this laptop carrying case on Amazon for £11.99 which may not be an expensive present but it is a practical one that was well needed by him to carry his laptop around and to have something to pack it away into when we take it on holiday.
The case is made of polyester and is a good design, it is a black laptop case with a sturdy handle at the top, he used to use a square zip up case without a handle and had to put it under his arm to carry it around and it was a struggle getting the laptop into it.
With this one he can just pack it away and grap the handle to carry it around, it looks a little like a briefcase, so doesn't look too bulky.
The laptop case holds a 16 inch screen laptop very snuggly and securely in place without room for it to move around and get broken by being jolted or banged around due tot he case being to large.
You just unzip the laptop bag and the laptop fits inside nicely, there are two straps inside which the hold laptop in place so there is less risk of it sliding around in the case, zip it up and you are ready to carry it around.
It also has a shoulder strap if you like to carry things on your shoulder, I prefer to carry it over my shoulder as it seems lighter and I don't like to risk it being swung around if I have it in my hand, but it's depends on which your comfortable with.
There is also a large pocket on the side of the carry case for you to store notes, files or other business type documents you may need to take with you when you pack your laptop into this carry case.
As a gift it is a good idea for men, as a practical item to help you to move your laptop around without the fear of getting it scuffed, scratched or banged then it gets my vote of confidence.
I would recommend it to you as this has been a product that has had much use with our family. We have all borrowed it on one occassion or another.
I like the design and the sturdy make of this laptop case, it feels and looks like a quality item and the price is in anyone's range of affordability.
If your looking for a laptop case then this one is a very good option, it holds the laptop in place securely and is easy to pack away with other luggage if your going on holiday. You can relax knowing that your laptop is cushioned inside this sturdy carry case.
I give this a 10 out of 10, for durability, design, studyness and practicality.
