I’ve spent many hours telling laptop users to buy a nice, padded bag to safely protect their investment. Not only do I want them to keep their laptop in working condition for their sake, but I don’t want to deal with it once they’ve damaged it. Small equals complicated in most cases, and pulling out all of those parts can ruin an otherwise wonderful day.
My dog Sadie agrees with keeping padded bags, but for different reasons. Having evidently tired of her crate and bed, she carefully emptied out my wife’s laptop bag recently and made it her new residence. That part doesn’t surprise me. It was the neat pile all of the removed gear had been arranged in. Kinda cute, kinda disconcerting.
