While I didn’t have to take my laptop out of my bag when I went through airport security in Taipei, it’s usually the norm when I am traveling through North America. Every time that I get ready to board a flight, the security personnel will get me to remove my notebook from my backpack and have it go through the scanner on its own.
This takes up extra time, both when taking it out and putting it back in, and that’s why Targus has developed the Zip-Thru Corporate Traveler Laptop Case. With this particular bag, it is not necessary to remove your notebook from the case. Instead, there is a zipper that you just open up and then you can lay it flat on the scanner’s conveyor belt.
The initial verson of the Targus Zip-Thru Traveler Laptop Case is designed for 15.4-inch notebooks, but other sizes are surely int he works as well. Targus worked with TSA to ensure that these bags fit the TSA’s needs.
