Travel Tips: New TSA Laptop bag rules

Starting today the Transportation Safety Administration is adopting new rules for traveling with laptops.  For years we've had to take them out of our carry on for separate x-ray.  I've still had to turn it on in some places top prove it actually was a functioning laptop.

These below types of laptop bags will allow you to put your laptop through the the x-ray device without removing it.  These bags allow the laptop to lay flat without zippers, snaps and other metal objects between the laptop and the x-ray.


These types of bags are no goes...which is a particular bummer for me, as I travel with a backpack.
