â??â??Women require space for cosmetics, cell phone, a file or two and a little space for a snack on the go, â??â??says the Donna dâ??affari consultant.


Laptop bag features combine spacious design and durability with sophistication

Key features most laptop bags should have is a spacious design with sufficient storage to accommodate your laptop and related accessories like computer cables, documents, business cards, IPods or cell phone. Check the durability of the fabric, whether itâ??s easy to clean or not, does the interior have padding for protection and if the bag itself is comfortable and light enough to carry.

Whilst increasing in popularity as a fashion accessory, laptop bags should be more than just ornamental.
