    Are you looking for a backpack or one that you put over your shoulder?

    I'm starting to regret going overboard and buying an expensive gaming laptop for uni. I'm too scared to put it in a laptop bag and carry it around now.

    I feel you there, my gaming laptop is so heavy! But it's the price you pay for good quality

    is a laptop vital for uni? like when youre in lectures do they have plugs to be able to charge your laptops with or cant you do that
    It isn't vital, but it is pretty damn useful.
    I don't think there are any power sockets where you can charge your laptop during the lectures, but most of the new laptops seem to have 9+ hours of battery life anyway, so it shouldn't be a problem.

    They have plugs on every seat for us - but it will always depend on how old the lecture building is.

    It very rare to see people with laptops in lectures, unless you study informatics.

    Guess it depends on your course. During my degree (English) and PGCE there was only one or two people who took laptops in but quite a few brought in tablets. People would mostly use pen and paper for notes instead. There were plugs but not many.

    I'll probably get it insured if I'm actually going to be taking it around. But as it stands I wouldn't even take mine to lectures. Itd stand out too much and I want to avoid drawing attention to myself

    A backpack which is big enough to fit a laptop!
    A backpack is pretty much essential for me, I have slightly injured my back and it's the easiest and least painful way to carry all your stuff! I didn't need a laptop everyday but some days we would have group projects that needed to be done on computers and it was easier if we all had our laptops, you may need it so get a back that can carry it!

    Don't you get a bit worried if you carry a bottle of liquid in there with it that it will come undone? Or do you have different compartments

    the kind of bag you had for college will be fine for lined paper/folders stationery, water bottle etc. If you want to take your laptop to uni then get a laptop carrier too.

    Some of them probably :P but nah, they annotate the lecture slides- to save printing them. Too much content to write from scratch
