Will a magnetic snap on a tote bag damage a laptop? I have two bags, one has a magnetic snap closure on top, the other has a zipper but the outside pockets close with a magnetic snap. I would like to use them to carry my laptop but want to make sure the magnets won't damage the machine. I would appreciate any guidance you can provide.

(I hope this is the correct forum. I wasn't sure where to post)

Thank you.

Not unless it's a really, really big magnet
You should be fine

Good to know. Thank you.

P.S. I guess I'll leave the laptop at home when I go for an MRI. :thumbsup:
