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.
