I don’t like it when the case weighs twice as much as the laptop.
Simple solution… get a bulkier laptop!
In all seriousness, I have a Dell Precision M4800 mobile workstation I travel with for work, and it is a monster. My laptop bag weighs between 28 and 30 pounds according to the airline scales depending on what I have with me.
I currently have a Swiss Gear rolling bag and love it but have always wanted an all leather bag. The descriptions show the size on the rolling cases to be 17" without the frame and with frame to be 19.5", does anyone actually have one of these bags who can comment on if they fit under most airline seats? If it does, I’d order one just to check it out…
