Before you go out and buy the biggest model available, give yourself a week or so with your current briefcase and see what’s missing from it. Is your existing one bursting at the seams or do you manage to squeeze a notebook computer in there next to or on top of all your papers? If you find that everything fits, but just not well enough, then you might consider a medium sized instead of a large aluminum briefcase.
You should not buy laptop backpacks, which don’t have specific laptop protection. You can opt for the cheapest option like, foam padding. Many backpacks are found with different compartments, where you can keep different laptop accessories inside each compartment. In order to keep those laptop accessories in the right place, these compartments also come with straps to keep the laptop as well as accessories tightly.
Why not treat your sporty groomsmen to a basketball game or a football game? Game tickets make excellent gifts. You can also order some customized key chains that feature their favorite team or players. Another groomsmen gift idea for sporty people is some are sports collectibles – miniature bobble heads of the sports (players) they like, shot glasses, mugs, t-shirts, basket and many other gifts.
You should also take notice of the RF frequency of the speakers. This way you’ll know if they’ll work through furniture, cubicles or walls. The RF frequency represents the range in which you can use the speakers.

The most important thing is to make sure that the vents and fans of the laptop and the laptop cooler align. Raw fan power or CFM (Cubic feet per minute, which is a measure of the volume of air flowing in a system.) is not everything. Alignment of fans and vents will have a bigger role in how effective the cooler is in most cases. Exceptions would be if a laptop does not do well in the presence of any laptop cooler you have tried or if you are having ridiculously high temperatures in specific cases. An example of this would be the Zalman NC1000 versus the Zalman NC2000 debate for a 15.4 inch laptop. After tests were done the lower CFM NC2000 beat out the NC1000 due to the fans and vents being hit better.
The most important thing about purchasing laptop bags is durability. Make sure that the laptop bag is durable, so you don’t have to worry about dropping your notebook and damaging it by having scratches. The padding inside the laptop bag is also useful, as this will guard the notebook from sudden jerks and movements while you are carrying the laptop for travel.
