Where do you guys get your laptop bags and cases? Do most folks prefer strapped cases to backpacks in med school?
Thanks. I'll check out Booq and Brenthaven. Were you a med student at Yale as well or just for residency?I'm not a big fan of leather laptop cases. I'm actually a fan of Booq cases. Brenthaven also makes some good cases. Check those out, but I don't think they come in leather.
Welcome to Yale. Feel free to PM me if you have questions about housing.
I wonder if that was part of what pushed them into the mainstream for guys?I have a backpack and messenger bag that can carry laptops. I don't bring my laptop everyday. When I do bring my laptop, I put in the backpack. Since I also carry paper lecture handouts, the backpack makes it easier to deal with heavier loads. I do use the messenger bag with my laptop, but it is infrequent. I have noticed that it is easier to mess up the fabric on nice clothes with a rugged backpack than it is with a messenger bag.
