My 11" I carry in a sleeve type case, as it is used for day trips mostly and battery life is 10 hrs so I only need my mouse.

My 15" has a full soft case with pockets for charger, scanner, mouse, and various cables. A "test" drop on a corner from 2-3' produced no damage.

Well, it was an unplanned "test".

A hard case is a matter of preference, but IMHO they r breakable/bendable and not as "flexible" - carry wise or storage wise.

I use a laptop backpack. Not the best one around as it doesn't have lots of cushioning, but I am super careful when transporting my laptop in it. No issues yet.

I splurged and bought the Alienware Briefcase that was made for my AW18. Didn't want to take any chances and it gives me another reason to hold Dell liable in the worst case scenario.

I have a laptop backpack and it works well for my on-the-go needs. I have a Timbuk2 for my laptop or tablet.

My laptop backpack came included with my lenovo y570 purchase from newegg a while back. Nice and padded, and extra slots for books/material. Same black/orange color scheme as the laptop also!

With the smaller ones (11") I tend to go minimal / sleeve only, since I use them mainly while moving and don't want to carry a lot.

The bigger ones (15" & 17") are carried in a backpack with a padded laptop pocket.

I'm having trouble finding something reasonably professional that matches the mountain equipment co-op backup I've been using for a decade. Professional laptop/messenger bags just don't seem to have much space. I'm looking for suggestions, or experience if anyone uses timbuktu and/or crumplers.

For non-work travel, I much prefer a hiking daypack. Well made, large, flexible pockets make a lot of difference. Good materials ensure that the empty pack is still light.

I pop my laptop into a 16 inch Targus sleeve then place it into my padded Targus backpack. I haven't had a single issue and I have dropped the backpack a couple of times forgetting the laptop was in there.

I use a SwissGear Pegasus to carry my 15 inch y510p and all my other random stuff. Love it.

I have a 15-inch and have been using a padded Targus carry bag since 2010. Sometimes I instead put the computer in my backpack when going to classes though (comp sci major in college/university).

I really like this laptop bag, but sadly my Y500 doesn't fit in it, works well for my smaller work laptop though.

I bought a 1495 Pelican Case and decorated it, I could throw this out of my 2nd story window with little worry about the condition of its contents.

It is a bit heavy, but it's the price I'll pay for my gears safety.

I have a Y510p and put it in a Wenger sleeve and then in a Wenger laptop carrying case for a 17". I've dropped it twice with no damage (yes, I'm a klutz). I carry a power supply, Razer mouse and pad, long Ethernet cable and a bunch of screen wipes.

I use a low-profile Targus backpack. I like the comfort of a backpack, without anything too flashy. Ideally, no one would even know I have laptop inside.

To put it into my swiss gear backpack that has a padded sleeve built into it.

Well, seeing as how my Y500 is a borderline DTR notebook I prefer carrying it in a high quality backpack - usually I'm also bring my charger and mouse along so a smaller carrier just doesn't have the capacity to fit everything comfortably. If you need to bring your workhorse into a conservative professional setting, though, it'll still be best to stick with the old fashioned messenger bag/briefcase.

I like my book bag because it can hold my cooling pad, mouse, mouse pad, power cord, and any other toys i decide to bring along. I still seem to be running low on space.

I traveled from South Dakota to Colorado, Colorado to Japan, then my final destination Guam. Using the Slappa M.A.S.K. Jedi Mind Trix. Notebook on hand was the Sager 9570/ Clevo P570WM with two Power Bricks, Astro A50's, PS Vita and Logitech G700 S Was quite a work out lugging 20+ Lbs but everything fit securely. Airport screening was a breeze due to the TSA approved lay flat notebook sleeve.

I have a bag that fits my 15.6" notebook really well. It has a sling so I can carry it around with me. However it's not waterproof so whenever it all suddenly rains I must find shelter ASAP :unconscious:
