The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) has recently allowed manufacturers to produce travel-friendly laptop sleeves that meet security needs. The new sleeves were designed so that laptop-laden travelers no longer need to pull out their portable computers for inspection when traveling and there are two companies seem to be leading the charge in the newest trend of technological travel.

The Targus model has both straps and pockets. Their Zip-Thru case includes a padded a shoulder strap and has multiple pockets. This sleeve resembles more of a briefcase split in half. There are two large pockets divided by a zipper; one of these pockets is for the laptop, while the other pocket allows for personal items. The dividing zipper can be unzipped when approaching a checkpoint, so that the case can be laid flat without anything interrupting the X-ray scan. This allows for a clear image of the laptop and insures that you won't have to take it out to be examined. There are other pockets on the case as well, which include a file section, pen loops, key clip and pockets to keep things organized. It weighs almost four pounds and can accommodate a 15.4" widescreen laptop. It's a bit pricier than others, but that should be expected as it holds so much.
