I've got an international trip this weekend with several changes of flight.

I usually carry my laptop in it's case but I'm getting old and wondered if I could pack it into my check in bag safely.

It's one of those with hard sides and soft top and bottom.

Put it in a hand carry bag and use and bubble wrap to keep it safe.

I think you should purchase a laptop bag and carry it with this bag. If you pack it into a check-in bag, then it may be damaged. So don’t take a risk.

Did you end up buying a sling bag type of bag or did you opt for a backpack? I find backpacks are more convenient. It's a lot safer too and easy on the shoulders. Mine's got a padded compartment where I can keep my laptop safe while I cram the rest of my clothes on the other zipped compartment.

I had a laptop bag that was suitable already, the problem is I have another shoulder bag that I use for iPad, glasses, phone etc so i was trying to avoid carrying two.

It worked out OK anyway.

Bring it with your hand carry. We really don't know how they take care our check in baggage.

I've seen people throwing check in stuff around. Also, I've seen the check in bags fall from heights of several feet or more as they are transferred to various conveyor belts. You should always carry your laptop with you and treat it like you would treat an infant. They are SO delicate.
