The one thing I hate about traveling is that I have to unpack my carry on because it has a laptop and GPS in it. That makes this announcement from the TSA a good one for me – but not a good one for my favorite eBags laptop bag.
Starting Aug. 16, TSA will allow laptops to remain in bags meeting new ‘checkpoint friendly’ guidelines. Not all laptop bags are ‘checkpoint friendly’
To help streamline the security process and better protect laptops TSA has recently encouraged manufacturers to design bags that will produce a clear and unobstructed image of the laptop when undergoing X-ray screening. A design that meets this objective will enable TSA to allow laptops to remain in bags for screening.
