NOTE to Admin: I am not here to spam or violate any rules, just want to know what are the needs of the frequent traveler person regarding mobile gadgets. just trying to help an inventor friend.

My friend is designing a next generation laptop bag that has all the necessary things that most of us would never imagine to be integrated to a laptop bag.

He needs a consumer's point of view of what we want in a laptop bag.
like maybe a laptop bag with solar panels for charging mobile gadgets or laptop bag that changes color with a push of a button to suit your moods.
please feel free to share your creative ideas here.

is this the laptop bag I've heard Louis Vuitton and Prada are bidding to design gold buckles, rings, and fashion accessories to it? I want an interchangeable laptop bag cover panel. Love to design the panels according to my everyday mood and style.

I like the idea of having a solar panel to charge the laptop and other gadgets however it might damage the laptop itself due to overheating during voltaic process. A cooling system must installed too. I am looking for a bag that has cotton in material but is waterproof and shockproof and even fireproof so that in the worst case scenario like fire and flood, my laptop is still protected.

Lightweight & compact but with good padding/protection of some kind for the laptop, loads of space for other stuff (seperate pocket from the laptop). Waterproof, shockproof, slashproof. Lockable zips.

I'm looking for a bag exactly like the above at the moment, when's this product going to be available?

Charging power maybe, but would probably add unneccessarily to the weight, maybe just some sort of straps/support to incorporate an external solar charger as and when it's needed... Also I find that the idea of all-in-one charging is always appealing, but they don't work for 2 out of 3 of my most frequently carried gadgets, so it wouldn't be a selling point to me unless it could act "universally" or specifically for the benefit of the carried object, e.g. an iphone case that charges iPortableGadgets...

I don't really go in for all the fancy stuff though, so for me weight & structure of the bag would be the main points to consider.

I don't want a dedicated laptop bag - I had one once, and threw it out after a month for being highly impractical when travelling; I want my regular backpacks (both daypack and 40 liter hiking pack) to have laptop compartments, keeping the laptop off the ground when I put down the pack (my daypack - a north face recon - has this). What would be ideal and a major improvement would be if they'd be protected inflexible compartments somehow adjustable to the size of the laptop (allowing to carry up to a 15" laptop, without wasting space in the backpack when carrying a 12" one), so I wouldn't need the extra weight/bulk of a laptop sleeve / hardcase, and could just carry the laptop in there without fearing that the other contents of the pack would crush/damage the laptop.

Wait, I thought your friend wanted suggestions? Now you are telling folks to settle down? That, and the fact that 3 first time posters are contributing to this thread (VERY rare in cases that aren't hidden advertising/spam), has me removing a big chunk of your last post...

Sir! sorry about the last post I just really want people's idea regarding the design for my friends laptop bag. and yes I admit that one way or the other it seems that I am advertising something here.
but let play it straightforward to you.
Mr. Arthur Carmazzi is a friend of mine and he wants input from laptop users especially the travelers on what do they need in traveling for their laptop.
he already has the basic concept and design and the picture is out but still needing 3rd party designer to join the said concept.
if this post is not deleted let me ask your permission if I can put a link or even a picture of the said bag here.
I assure you dear Sir that there is no hidden agenda on this matter and everything is legit.
that being said I still want to apologized if I violated any forum rules.
hoping to hear a comment or response to this.
