TSA Ready for 'Checkpoint Friendly' Laptop Bags


The TSA has gotten flack, as of late, for not being slack enough on travelers toting laptops. In short, the TSA is asking every laptop owner to open up and boot up... while also facing them with possible seizure of their equipment without just cause. Never fear, they have a very clear set of guidelines that should allow you to glide through the checkpoint straight to the tarmac - without your laptop seeing the light of day.

Too bad it will eat up more time looking for a bag that meets these requirements, than just opening your bag in the first place. But, hey TSA thanks for trying.

Effective tomorrow, for a bag to be considered checkpoint friendly it should meet the following standards:

  • A designated laptop-only section
  • The laptop-only section completely unfolds to lay flat on the X-ray belt
  • No metal snaps, zippers or buckles inside, underneath or on top of the laptop-only section
  • No pockets on the inside or outside of the laptop-only section
  • Nothing packed in the laptop-only section other than the computer itself.
Here's a new market ripe for conquest... TSA Ready Laptop Bags, investors I'm waiting.

This is especially true now that handheld gaming systems are getting downloadable content and media support like their homebound brethren.
