Whether you need ample storage for all your electronics or just enough space for a slender netbook, there's a case on the market that fits your needs.
Nuo enlisted Project Runway winner Chloe Dao to design its new line of slim laptop bags. Though the company calls them sleeves, the cases have a hard outer shell and room to hold a few file folders and a gadget or two.
If you have a supersleek netbook, why carry it in a bulky bag? The E-Sling from Case Logic is designed for small laptops.
PRICE: Small or medium (fits netbooks up to 10 inches), $40; large (for 12-inch laptops), $55
Travelon's checkpoint-friendly backpack contains a laptop sleeve with a see-through mesh cover. When you get to an airport security checkpoint, pull out the sleeve, and your laptop can be screened without being removed.
Instead of pockets, the bags in the debut collection from Cocoon Innovations have a panel of elastic straps, which can hold gadgets, pens, or other travel gear. The bags are scheduled for release this spring.
PRICE: $120 to $170
