What is a Traveler’s Notebook?

Before we get into the different refills, I wanted to start by talking about what a traveler’s notebook even is. Sometimes called the Midori Traveler’s Notebook or Traveler’s Notebook Midori, because Midori rebranded this popular line as its own company, travelers notebooks have notebooks, planners, and other inserts that help you create your own planning system. The great thing about the Traveler’s Notebook system is that they are fully customizable. You can add up to four inserts comfortably at a time and swap them out as you wish for different needs while still keeping the same luxurious leather cover. This is obviously a favorite of travelers because of how easy it is to swap inserts out to write or scrapbook about your current travels.

Traveler’s Notebook Starter Kits

Whether you’re using it to record memories, keep track of travel itineraries, or jot down random observations while on the road, the Traveler’s notebook is an excellent companion to bring with you wherever you go. Its simple and elegant design needs no further embellishment; the beauty of the leather cover speaks for itself. Available in a larger Regular size and smaller Passport size, the Starter Kit includes a blank notebook that features Midori Diary (MD) paper, made with care in Japan, where you can write or sketch to your heart’s content. An elastic band stretches along the spine of the cover, holding the notebook in place, while another band keeps the notebook shut. While the Traveler’s notebook sizes aren’t standard (like a5, b6, etc.) there are plenty of options both from Traveler’s company and alternatives.

This Starter Kit is the perfect starting point for you to customize your notebook. Now you’re ready to add extra notebooks, attach a pen holder, insert zipper pouches, pockets, and the other accessories you see below! Also below, you can see special edition covers from collaborations with Japanese brands or from Traveler’s Factory stores.

Or, for more options, shop on Amazon Japan.

Traveler’s Notebook Size Comparison

As you saw above, Traveler’s Notebooks come in two sizes: Regular and Passport. The Regular size is similar to an A5 Slim at 9″ x 5.7″, while the passport size is unique to Traveler’s Notebook at 5.2″ 3.8″. These two compact sizes make them great for travel or using as your daily carry.

Traveler’s Notebook Refills- Regular Size

Midori Diary Paper Notebooks

Midori put a lot of thought into their signature paper. After much testing and many iterations, the paper is bleed-resistant, feather-resistant, and fountain pen friendly, all contributing to a pleasant writing experience. Refills for the Traveler’s notebook are available in these styles:

Lined

Traditional notebook users gravitate toward this classic style. With a 6.5 mm ruling, the lines are ideal for penning your thoughts, travel notes, and anything else you like to keep in your notebook.

How to Install Multiple Traveler’s Notebooks

You don’t have to limit yourself to just one notebook! There are multiple ways to include more notebook refills in your Traveler’s notebook. While we’ve seen notebooks stuffed to the brim, we recommend filling up your notebook with no more than three or four refills depending on the thickness of each refill for ease of use.

Traveler’s notebook Connecting Bands

Traveler’s Company offers these nifty elastic bands to help install multiple notebook refills in one cover. First, insert a refill between the existing rubber band and cover. Then, place the second notebook next to the first. Open both notebooks in the middle and grip those middle pages together. Slide the connecting band through those pages. To install another refill, take the second and third refill and follow the same steps.

Alternately, you can use the connecting bands to attach the first and second refill outside of the notebook, then insert them into the notebook afterwards. The back cover of the first refill and the front cover of the second becomes the middle of the notebook with this arrangement. This provides a more balanced look to your notebook if you only have two refills, but you can continue adding notebooks to your notebook using the techniques above.

Using the Existing Elastic Binding

You can also use the existing binding on the notebook to add an extra refill. Insert the first notebook through the first elastic as usual. Then tug on the second elastic to give yourself more space, and slide the extra refill in.

Additionally, the elastic that comes with the box can be used to add an extra refill. Remove the elastic band from the box and slip it through the cover. Then, insert the refill through the band as you would normally. The downside to this method is that the elastic is visible from the outside, detracting from the clean look of the cover.

Traveler’s Notebook Special Editions

Traveler’s notebook 2021 Planners

Traveler’s Company comes out with dated planners every year as well themed accessories. The theme for 2021 is inspired by books.

Traveler’s Company Travel Tools Collection

2020’s theme was “Travel Tools”, and Traveler’s Company debuted a special Travel Tools Collection. It includes notebook refills, letterpressed stickers and cards, washi tape, and more. This collection is limited edition so grab the items while you can!

Shop on Etsy

Traveler’s Company Factory Green Collection

Traveler’s Company released a collection of pens inspired by inspired by the Traveler’s Company factory, whose doors, floors, and shelves are painted in a similar light green color to evoke a sense of safety and peace of mind. Today, the paint is faded in some areas and darkened in others—a testament to many years of hard work and productivity. In much the same way, the finish of this pen will develop a unique patina over the years, reflecting how you’ve used it. As the paint wears away, the brass underneath will begin to show through.

Shop on Etsy

Traveler’s Factory Limited Editions

Traveler’s Company have Traveler’s Factory stores in Japan that sell the same merchandise listed in this guide, as well as limited edition covers, refills, and accessories that can only be purchased in store and in the specific store you’re in.

If you’re a true Traveler’s Company junkie, the Traveler’s Factory stores should definitely be on your bucket list. There are three locations in Tokyo: Tokyo Station, Narita Airport, and the flagship store in Nakameguro. There is a fourth store in Kyoto. Each location is unique, and a treat to visit for stationery and travel lovers.

I would highly recommend visiting a store yourself if only for the experience, but at the time of writing (June 2021) most travelers are not able to make it to Japan. So if there are certain special edition notebooks you’re interested in, you can purchase them on Etsy from local sellers who go to the store and can ship them to you.

Fair warning though, these special editions are expensive to begin with (even more so than the standard leather covers) so the prices from these sellers are even higher because of their exclusivity and popular demand. So unless you’re an avid collector or lucky enough to have a large budget, I might stick to the standard covers or save up to visit Japan in the future. Depending on where you’re traveling from, it honestly might just be cheaper to fly to Japan to shop for yourself, plus you get the experience of Japan and the Factory stores.

Some of my favorite shops are inukshuk Japan, Stationery Station, and Japaneasy Shopper. All are based in Japan and have a huge selection of Traveler’s Notebook, Hobonichi, and anything else you can only find in Japan. If you’re interested in what else I like on Etsy, check out my profile.

Some of the best limited edition items are the Traveler’s Factory Airport Edition, Traveler’s Factory Station Edition, Traveler’s Factory Kyoto Edition, and the Starbucks Reserve Roastery Tokyo Collab.

Traveler’s Company Alternatives

If you’re looking for a refillable notebook that’s more affordable, not leather, or a different size, there are a few options that you can also consider.

What to Put in Your Traveler’s Notebook

There’s no end to the possibilities of your Traveler’s Notebook. One of the greatest thing about the TN system is that you can mix and match, swap out, and customize to whatever works best for you. But if you’re at a loss for what to do with your notebook, or you’re looking for new ideas here are some of the top ideas.

  1. Journal. Spend a little time each day writing down your thoughts or jotting down your notes. Doing all of this in a beautiful leather cover makes it that much more special.
  2. Daily Organizer. Use the calendar insert to keep track of your schedule, add in some pouches or pockets to keep receipts or notes from work or school, and add in another notebook or two to write your to-do lists or
  3. Work Hours or Expenses. Use the notebooks to log your work hours, your expenses, and your overall to-do lists. Keep receipts for taxes in a pouch or added pocket. It’s so easy to use your Traveler’s notebook for work as you can customize it to fit your needs.
  4. Wallet and Appointment Book. I know a few people who actually use a TN as a wallet with pouches and zippered pockets or IDs, cash, and important documents. They also add a notebook to write down anything they might need to remember while away from their main planner or desk.
  5. Health Journal. Keep track of your fitness goals, medical concerns, or overall health.
  6. Art Journal. Paint, draw, or design your notebooks any way that makes you feel creative.
  7. Travel Journal. And finally, the most obvious. Most people probably use the Traveler’s Notebook as an actual travel journal. Because of its slim size and easily interchangeable notebooks, you can take it anywhere with you and switch out the refills for your next trip. Keep track of your itinerary, write down your bucket list, or collect souvenirs in the pouches. The possibilities are endless.

For help with creative journaling or trying different art techniques, I definitely recommend Skillshare. It’s an invaluable tool or ever-increasing courses where you can learn just about anything. You can learn how to watercolor or try calligraphy, and then learn a new language or how to start your own business. Get one month Free Now.

Midori Traveler’s Notebook Passport Size: How I Use It with Field Notes

OK, so yeah. I bit the bullet. I’ve been hearing about the Midori Traveler’s Notebooks for a long time now, and I am kind of surprised at how long I managed to dodge this purchase. The first review I found was this one, which utilized the MTN for a single notebook. That just seemed really unnecessary to me, so I didn’t think much of it.

I then saw Krysty’s review, and saw that it didn’t work out for her, which nixed it automatically for my fickle self. Then, I saw Bea’s post  and it was like a choir of angels (really). I went on an obsessive spiral of timesuck, watching videos and posts of setups and inserts and what-have-you.

Warning: This is a pretty long post about journals and planners, so just a warning before you go any further. The dork is strong in this one.

I got the Midori Traveler’s Notebook Passport Size in Brown. I switched out the brown elastic for the orange one, though I might put the brown one back, because reasons.

I’ve only had this for about a week and a half, so I can’t give you a truly accurate review of how it does in the long-term. However, I’ve been pretty happy with the set-up I ended up sticking with after a few frustrating tries. I’m sure it will change over the course of the year and the next year, though, but that’s fine.

So, like the title says, I use the MTN Passport Size with my Field Notes notebooks. I have amassed quite a stash of these and at some point, I stopped using them, favoring my Rhodia Webnotebook, a desk A5 in black (mainly because of the dot grid and FP-friendly paper), which I also recently stopped using for day-to-day activities. More on this later.

Basically, I thought I could go paperless, but alas. It was not meant to be.

I should note that the Field Notes are quite a bit larger than the Midori inserts (3.5″ x 5.5″ vs. 3.5″ x 4.5″), so for the passport size, I can only actually fit about 3 books inside the cover before it starts to look a little clunky and gets a little tough to write in. I can slip in an extra notebook into the elastic front, if I really need to, but I like having everything tucked inside.

Well, kind of.

The first thing I did to figure out my system (i. e. what to do with the refills) is to list down what I wanted and needed my Midori to do for me. I am very scatterbrained and my brain likes to work in many, many tangents, which made it ultimately hard for me to keep just a single notebook for everything, i.e. the Bullet Journal, which comes into play, too.

So, I decided I wanted:

a) a journal
b) a place for writing drafts, and
c) a place for lists

… that was compact, portable, and simple.

I had wanted a separate refill for blog posts, but I decided against it because I figured I could just transfer ideas or outlines from my b refill and into a separate notebook I kept at home. This led me to decide that all single project notebooks would stay at home and all these refills I had would have the pertinent information that I needed with me at all times.

REFILLS

Refill 1: Journal and Brain Dump
This is where the unfiltered thoughts and pasting-in happens. Tread lightly. I like using blank, graph or dot grid FNs for this. I wanted to get back into journaling and just keeping track of the things that happen in a day, since I stopped doing that at some point in the last few years. It’s made me feel a little off, to be honest. I used to carry this ginormous journal around in school, everyday, like an asshole:

(It expanded to something like an inch and a half or two inches of whining and other dramatic things. Hello, white iBook!)

I put random thoughts, day-to-day stupidity, and some very rudimentary scrapbooking in here. This is also a great way to pretend you’re busy when you’re alone somewhere, waiting for something or someone, haha.

Current in use: Field Notes County Fair New York Blue (Graph)

Refill 2: Drafts and Outlines
One of my 2015 goals is to write more, so this is an answer to that. I use at least a page for each “project,” like blog posts, book reviews, drafts for writing assignments, notes or anything like that. I review this at the end of the day (… or eventually in the week) and transcribe important data into my Evernote account. This essentially contains rough outlines, very informal notes, etc.

The front I’ve used to store some sticky notes I may need, though I find I don’t usually use the cutesy ones. But, you know, just in case.

Current in use: Field Notes Night Sky Book 2: Midsummer (star/cross graph) + sticky notes

Sidenote: Night Sky’s star/cross graph:

Refill 3: Bullet Journal
This is my Bullet Journal. I like using graph FN Notebooks because I have an abundance of those and they are convenient. I ended up needing a Bullet Journal because I love lists and I need day-to-day micromanaging, like a child. I started out using a Traveling Salesman FN, since it used a ledger layout inside, but I decided to leave it at home to transfer “important” lists to from my Bullet Journal.

So, my Bullet Journal is basically a catch-all for all lists, as it’s supposed to be. I struggled with using this after my initial enthusiasm, plainly because I’m lazy. My Bullet Journal Key is on film sticky notes on the first page of Refill 3. These are mostly task and notes-based.

My Bullet Journal setup is very much based on a modified version by Interpuncted Thirty that includes a modified months page that’s more forward planning-friendly. I still kept my Index Page because I’m using this refill/Bullet Journal for other lists, too.

The back page is a tracker for “daily tasks” like flossing (lol), vitamins, achieving my water intake goal (the boring ol’ 8-glass standard), and computer-based things I need to get out of the way everyday to keep on top of things. I know this makes me sound like a crazy person, but I have slid down a pit of doom many times, and I just really want to get myself back on track. I think micromanaging is the way to do that, unfortunately.

Current in use: Field Notes Cold Horizon, opposite the back cover of Field Notes Night Sky

ACCESSORIES

I don’t really have any fancy accessories like the slide-y pocket (though I’m looking to get that one) for cards and sticky notes or (I ended up getting it, haha) any of the fancy inserts people buy on Etsy or print out for themselves. I just don’t like how the handmade inserts look + I don’t want to bother.

I do use washi tape for decorating and organizing, and I borrow my dad’s Fuji Instax Share SP-1 to print some photos, occasionally, for journaling. Other than that, my MTN is a pretty standard 3-insert deal.

NOT MIDORI RELATED

Forward Planning
Right now, I need a visual way to present my plans (ha what plans), and I honestly favor the Weekly Views for calendaring.

For all my forward-planning needs, I got the Evernote x Moleskine Planner for 2015 to try digitizing my manual notes. I was going to just try to solely use my MTN, but then I bought this back in September. I just have a Weekly View, so I mainly rely on my Google Calendar for a monthly overview. I am thinking of printing out a Monthly Grid View and slipping it somewhere with my MTN inserts, just so I have it at hand without having to use technology, heh. I’ll probably make a separate post for that if it ends up working out for me.

Pre-2015, I used this I.DO Weekly Planner (there are similar ones here from Artbox) that you have to input the dates in. I brought this around everywhere but, unfortunately, only sporadically wrote in it. I think I really have an aversion to cutesy stationery after all. In the final stretches of 2014, it’s working out well for me, and I guess that’s what matters.

On one page, there is a weekly view of columns. On the other side, there’s a three-column memo page with a checklist, a blank space, and one with grids. I mainly use this planner for scheduling blog posts, social events, and trips.

Project Planning
For now, this is sort of anything goes territory. I like dedicating a single notebook (i.e. a Field Notes notebook) to larger, more time-consuming projects that have many little tasks (e.g. a web project or a book design) or are continuous (e.g. blog ideas and scheduling). For shorter projects, I file them away in the aforementioned Rhodia Webnotebook. It really all depends on what would suit whatever it is more.

FLAWS IN THIS SYSTEM

The flaws of this system mainly concern the paper quality of Field Notes and my affinity for Fountain Pens. Some Colors editions (LE Field Notes books) take on FP ink better than others, but I mostly stick to Pilot Frixion Pens (I mainly use the Frixion Ball Slim in black and red, and this Frixion Colors pen/marker set) or the Uni Pin Fine Line Pens (0.05, 0.2, or 0.5) for my Bullet Journal.

My other pen of choice is the LAMY Safari (2013 Neon Yellow!) with an EF nib (OK on County Fair and Night Sky, HORRIBLE BLEEDING MESS on Cold Horizon).

Naturally, I can change the refills, but I mainly wanted to try this system because of my overflowing stash of Field Notes notebooks, so I’m kind of in a bind. (But not really, because this is kind of a minor gripe.)

That’s it. That’s the only thing I don’t like about it, and it’s not even the MTN’s fault.

I plan on posting another update about one month in, and maybe three months, six months, and so on. As you can see, I’m still pretty attached to this system. I just hope it stays that way.

ETA: I’m trying out a modified version of a Spiraldex/Chronodex and holy cow, I waste so much time being idle. It’s a tedious additional task to remember to do, but it’s good to visualize your day and how you spend your time. I think that I underestimated just how much time I waste sitting around, procrastinating. This is, for sure, an eye-opener for me.

I also purchased a zip/cardholder insert where I put my Spiraldex print-outs, a few bills, and washi tape and post-its. I’m in lurve.

INFORMATION

TRAVELER’S COMPANY Traveler’s Notebook Leather Passport Size Brown

Size Matters – Scrapcraftastic

TRAVELER’S NOTEBOOK, RING BINDER and DISC BOUND Planner Insert Sizes (in Inches)

With the variety of stationery sizes available, it can be confusing trying to find the right size insert for the right size planner or traveler’s notebook.

There are differences between the Metric System that the majority of the world uses versus the Customary System (Imperial or Standard System) that we still use here in the United States.

In an effort to visually represent the differences in sizes, I created the original Size Matters video. In this video, I compare and contrast the sizes for Traveler’s Notebooks.

Why Stationery Sizes Matter

Seeing the metric equivalent to insert sizes in inches and understanding why there were slight differences in sizes helps in understanding how to print and cut inserts. Understanding the sizes also helps in determining what size planner or traveler’s notebook will work for you!

Since that original Size Matters video, there have been some changes in the planner stationery world. There are more popular sizes, systems and styles. The 2019 Size Matters video shows the comparisons in vibrant colors and shares sizes in inches, but it also includes ring bound (binder) systems, and disc bound system sizes.


A Size Reference and Guide to Planner Inserts for Traveler’s Notebooks, Ring, Disc and Spiral Bound Planning Systems

This table includes the different stationery and planner insert sizes and what they are called in the planner community.

To further help with sizing issues for planning stationery and inserts, here is a table of measurements with Metric to Inches conversions. All sizes are in inches.

The Open Insert Size column provides the measurement of the full spread or open insert for that size traveler’s notebook insert.

How to Use a Traveler’s Notebook

Have you ever used a traveler’s notebook as part of your creative practice? Today we will be discussing how to use a traveler’s notebook to elevate your creative practice.

What is a Traveler’s Notebook?

The Midori style traveler notebook that kicked off the craze started in 2005, but the concept of a traveler’s notebook or journal has been around for a long time. They were used for taking notes and observations when people were traveling.

A traveler’s journal includes a notebook cover that has an elastic strung through the middle to hold a notebook, or notebooks in place. The covers can be made of a variety of materials, including leather, canvas, or cloth. With these elastics, a variety of notebooks can be inserted into the notebook cover and can be easily removed or replaced.

Notebook Inserts

The notebook inserts can have much variation from brand to brand. These notebooks (also known as signatures) are made by cutting, folding, and trimming paper. A coversheet can be added, and the signature is then stapled or sewn to create an insert for a traveler’s journal.

These signatures come in a large range of options and sizes. These include a range of plain paper, ruled paper and specialty paper. There are also options for calendar inserts, pockets and other things that can be added to a traveler’s notebook.

Traveler’s Notebook Closure

Traveler’s notebooks often comes with an elastic that wraps around the book to secure it shut. This is a preferred option as over time the notebook can get bulky. This keeps the book tidy and loose papers within the journal from slipping out.

Traveler’s Notebook Sizes

Traveler’s notebooks come in many shapes and sizes. It is important to be aware of this when buying signatures for your book. Depending on the brand, many books can have similar sizing, but the sizing is not universal. My favorite sizes for these books are 7.75” by 5”, 6” by 4.75” and 8” by 6.”

How to Use these In Your Creative Practice

So how can you use a traveler’s notebook in your creative practice? There are a variety of ways that I use these notebooks to create art and record my daily thoughts.   

Small Scrapbook

Try using your traveler’s notebook as a small scrapbook. You can add photos, stamps, ephemera, and other items that you find in your travels and daily life. What makes the traveler’s journal so useful for scrapbooking is that the format is smaller than an average journal or scrapbooking layout. This makes it quicker, easier and a little less formal. The traveler’s notebook is perfect for sharing the stories and thoughts that we experience throughout our day.

Art Journal

Your traveler’s notebook can be a great option for an art journal. Be aware of the thickness of the paper in your notebook. Depending on the weight of the paper, this will affect what materials you can use in your art journal. I use a 32lb smooth writing paper in my journal, which takes paint well. I generally use heavy body paints when working in my notebooks to ensure that it does not buckle or warp the paper.

Another option is gluing Gelli prints or other art prints into your journal. This will make the pages and the notebook thicker but will also allow you to use heavier mediums in your notebook on top of the prints.  

Journal or General Notebook

The traveler’s notebook is a great option for use as a journal or general notebook. These individual signatures can be used as separate notebooks, which allows you to have several notebooks of different topics in the same traveler’s journal.

Sketching/ Calligraphy

By using a traveler’s notebook as a sketchbook or a place to practice calligraphy this is a great way to always have a sketchbook with you. Be sure to use a high quality, smooth paper in your notebook for sketching. Choosing a paper that will take a variety of inks, and that will not bleed through or damage your pens is important to consider when choosing a signature or notebook insert.  

Where to Purchase Your Traveler’s Notebook

There are a variety of traveler’s notebooks available on the market. If you search for traveler’s journals online, there are a variety of sizes and brands. Pay attention to the covers and sizes of the signatures to make sure that the signatures will fit the notebook. I love making my own traveler’s journals and have some available for purchase at my hopalongstudio store on Etsy.

The traveler’s notebooks that I create are made from high quality cotton and durable interfacing. These are handmade in my studio, sewn by hand and scotch guarded for durability. Each book comes with 4 signatures with 40 pages each. The signatures are also handmade and sewn instead of stapled. I have included my favorite 32 lb, super smooth, white writing paper in these books. This paper works well with brush pens, fountain pens and light applications of paint.

What Do You Think?

Have you used a traveler’s notebook before? If not, do you think you might give one a try? These notebooks can be a great tool for aiding your creative self-care practice. If you have any questions or comments, please feel free to write them below or contact me directly. I hope that you find some time for creative self-care this week!

90,000 8 important differences between a netbook and a laptop

Laptops, ultrabooks, netbooks – all these portable devices help to make work and play more convenient. The average person may not know the difference between them, but when choosing a personal computer, it is very important to choose a device that will fully meet the needs.Today we will look at what a netbook is and what are its differences from a laptop?

Portability


The visible difference between a netbook and a laptop lies in its significantly smaller display size, body thickness, and weight. If the diagonal of a standard laptop can reach 20 inches and fully replace a monitor, for example, a candy bar, then for a netbook this parameter is 12 inches maximum. This makes the device lighter and more compact. However, a small screen will not allow you to enjoy a detailed image, so watching movies, playing and working with tables on it is not very convenient.

Modern models have such a thin case that it, a netbook, fits into any bag and even a pocket. This feature is good for travelers, because the netbook is convenient to use in cafes, transport and other places. It was created for those who need to quickly type a message, read an article, view files even in extreme situations.

Interesting to read: How to choose a netbook

Specifications or “iron filling”


In choosing a personal PC, size matters, but not as significant as the technical parameters of devices.The latest generation of well-known laptop brands also boasts an ultra-thin and mobile body. What is the difference between laptop and netbook hardware:

  • Processor power . Portable personal computers are designed with the understanding that the device is not intended for full-fledged, but for additional work. Therefore, developers are developing more in reducing the size than in equipping the gadget with modern technologies. Often, the lineup of netbooks has an Intel Atom processor, which is one of the weakest on the market.The advantage of such equipment is low energy consumption, and the disadvantage is the impossibility of working with heavy programs.

Some compact laptops of the Apple, Lenovo and Asus brands also run on more powerful hardware – Core m3 and i3, but they are more expensive.

  • Video card . The graphics capabilities of the netbook are limited, as the devices have a poor quality controller. New applications and games will not run on low-budget devices, and on more expensive devices, the work will not be as fast and stable as on gaming laptops.Netbooks are not suitable for gamers and graphic designers, photographers and editors who work with complex software.
  • Hard disk size . Portable laptops have a lot less hard drive capacity and are slower to operate. SSD drives in netbooks are less than 700GB, while standard personal PCs can be up to 4TB. Such disk capacity is needed for those who work with a large number of files, download various programs, watch a lot of audio and video content.To complement office work or use the device to communicate on social networks, 200 GB, which is available in every netbook, is enough.
  • The amount of RAM . The RAM on modern laptop models, for example, Asus and Dell, reaches 4 GB, which is enough for work. Netbooks, on the other hand, do not replace the computer and do not meet the need for powerful hardware. Designed for quick communication, they are more like a functional tablet with a keyboard. Therefore, if you need to work with a large number of files and programs open at the same time, then it is better to choose the largest amount of RAM.For normal use without much workload, you can do with 2 GB of RAM.

Laptop and netbook keyboard


The larger the device, the larger the display and keys. Regular laptops have a functional keyboard similar to that of a stationary device, and models with a display over 20 inches are also equipped with special gaming keys.

As for netbooks, due to the small size of the case, the keyboard is incomplete, lacking some “hot keys”, additional digital layout and device control buttons.The keys themselves are small and there is no distance between them for easy typing of large texts. If the choice between a laptop or a netbook is in front of an office worker, then the last gadget is inferior to the first.

See also: What is the difference between a laptop and an ultrabook – 5 main parameters

Difference between laptop and netbook software


Technical parameters of netbooks are weaker, therefore standard operating systems and programs are not suitable for their full-fledged work.For a smoother and more productive use, the device comes with Linux by default, which is lighter and more optimized for low-power PCs.

Lack of the system in the complexity of the work, as well as the limited application market. For newer models of netbooks, a specially cut down Windows operating system is installed. Laptops don’t have this problem – any user-friendly software system can be installed on them and it will work properly.

Price


Pricing for laptops with a large display and compact laptops with a thin case is different: a high-performance netbook with an average performance will cost less than a low-budget laptop.For comfortable work or quick search for information on the Internet while traveling, a netbook is a good price-to-power ratio of hardware. This gadget is suitable for those who need a device more than a tablet, but less than a computer with an affordable price tag.

Which is better: a netbook or a laptop?


Laptops are more suitable for full-fledged work in one place (home or office), as well as for movie nights and games. They have more powerful specifications, larger display diagonal, and better graphics adapters, controllers and video cards.Even if the model is low-budget, over time, it is improved and a more modern “filling” is put. The capacity of the battery is enough to complete work processes in the event of a sudden voltage failure and loss of power, and the device is used from the mains.

Netbooks gained popularity not because of the hardware, but because of their small size. Small, thin body weighing up to 1.5 kg is convenient to carry everywhere in your bag, briefcase and in a large pocket. It is indispensable for urgent travel, travel and communication devices outside the home.The netbook is convenient to use in places without power grid coverage, as the battery lasts up to 10 hours of intensive work. The disadvantage of such a PC is that even if desired, it cannot be improved (the case cannot be disassembled, the parts are soldered). Users will not be pleased with the lack of an optical drive for viewing files on disks and fewer USB ports.

To decide which is better – a netbook or a laptop, the individual needs of the buyer are taken into account.For gamers, designers, programmers and geeks a netbook will not be enough, but for travelers and inexperienced users without hardware requirements, the device will do. A portable mini-gadget is sold at an affordable price, which also plays a role in the purchase.

How to choose a laptop bag

There are many models on the market of various shapes and sizes, styles of execution, from different materials.The price of bags can differ tenfold, and it is not always clear what caused such a difference, are there any significant differences between different models, are they all equally comfortable and functional? , belt and other accessories, is a thing by which the taste and status of the wearer is judged.

Basic models

The right choice starts with the type of accessory. It can be executed as:

  • Classic bag with handle and shoulder strap – can be carried in the hand and on the shoulder;
  • backpack with two shoulder straps;
  • briefcase with one carry handle.

The classic model will perfectly complement a casual look, and go well with casual wear. This choice is optimal for those who are not limited by the requirements of a strict dress code. It is convenient to travel to work with her, including by public transport.

It is very convenient to use the backpack on long trips, it allows you to free your hands. But in public transport, when driving in a dense traffic of people, an expensive gadget can be stolen.

It is advisable for office workers, managers, high-ranking officials, lawyers who are required to comply with a business dress code to choose portfolios. They have a representative look and are harmoniously combined with a formal suit.

How to choose the right size for your laptop bag?

Before purchasing, you need to know the dimensions of your laptop. The main parameter is the diagonal of the screen, measured in inches. The most common models are designed for carrying gadgets with a diagonal of 14-15 inches.You can also buy a model with a screen diagonal of 10; eleven; 12; 13; 16; 17 inches or more. Choosing the right shape for your bag is just as important. With the same diagonal size, the length and width of the sides can be different.

How do I know which bag size is right for a particular model? Study the dimensions carefully, and make sure that none of them are smaller than the gadget. The next step is how to determine the size of the bag, taking into account the peculiarities of use. On the Internet, you can find recommendations to select it clearly according to the size of the gadget.Other resources are advised to take with some margin. The last tip will allow you to place other objects in it, but at the same time, the surface of the laptop is damaged more quickly, more often it is scratched.

Material

The choice of laptop bag largely depends on which material is preferred:

  • genuine leather;
  • leatherette;
  • textiles – nylon or polyester;
  • hard plastic.

Products made of genuine leather look very presentable, but it is visually difficult to determine the quality of the workmanship. To avoid disappointment, buy only well-known brands such as Samsonite.

Leatherette – such products are much cheaper and less durable, but they are just as practical. It is important to correctly determine the quality of the material and tailoring, which is guaranteed by the brand.

Products made of nylon or polyester attract with an affordable cost with good quality and high wear resistance.

Hard plastic provides maximum protection for gadgets, but such products are not very comfortable to carry in hands for a long time.

Degree of protection

The main function of a laptop bag is to provide protection from adverse external influences, how do you choose a laptop bag that will provide it? The following characteristics should be assessed:

  • water resistance;
  • shock absorbing properties.

To protect laptop computers from moisture, manufacturers use moisture-resistant materials – polyester and nylon, leather, plastic, and the gadget will not get wet even in a heavy downpour.Other materials are impregnated with special water-repellent compounds. Such impregnation is sufficient for a short walk in rain or snow. The best mechanical protection is provided by plastic cases, but bags made of leather and leatherette significantly soften the force of impacts. High-quality products made of nylon and polyester, additionally go through the process of reinforcement with metal threads and effectively protect electronic devices.

Protection against damage

Every owner strives to keep his laptop looking like new for as long as possible.But scuffs on the surface, small scratches let you know how long the gadget has been used. If you store and carry it in a case, backpack or case, there will be much less such microdamage. You just need to choose the right bag, carefully examining how its internal space is organized. The gadget compartment should hold it securely and be lined with a soft, smooth fabric.

In expensive models, the inner compartment can have reinforced walls, including those made using innovative technology with the installation of air bags.This avoids not only scratches when touching keys and coins, but also provides additional protection in case of falls, bumps, and moisture.

What else is important to pay attention to?

When deciding which bag to choose, you should pay attention to the thoroughness of the processing of the seams and high-quality accessories. Most well-known manufacturers do not use plastic zippers and other elements – only metal ones.

Another important point on how to choose the right bag is the number of additional external and internal pockets.For business people, it is advisable to purchase more capacious models in which you can carry not only a laptop, a mouse, but also various papers. Travel models may have compartments for keys, documents, camera, phone, charger.

How to choose a laptop bag?

Every third family in the modern world has a laptop on the table.Often, a laptop is not personal, but a family property, and it does not move anywhere from its place. But if a laptop is your personal means of rest or work, then, one way or another, you sometimes take it with you, while really wanting it to last longer. For the safety of the laptop and its convenient transportation, a bag-case for it can become your indispensable assistant.

The purpose of laptop bags is as varied as their range. These are backpacks with special compartments for travelers, which allow you to carry a lot of personal items with you, except for a laptop; and business cases, which will certainly form part of your official image; and light bright bags with a shoulder strap, which are sure to appeal to lovely ladies.As for the materials of bags, their choice is also wide: leather, nylon, plastic, aluminum, suede.

In order to choose a laptop bag, you need to pay attention to several parameters.

Bag type

Deciding on the type of bag for your laptop is very simple by answering the questions: “What is your lifestyle? Where do you take your laptop with you? ” Most often, we travel with a laptop within the same city, so the most popular option are bags with a cross-body shoulder strap and a pair of regular handles.In such bags, it is easy to carry a laptop over short distances, they do not interfere with public transport, throwing the bag over your shoulder, you free your hands. In addition, the color range of such bags is the widest, and you can easily find the one that suits you.

Business laptop bag in classic design made of genuine leather is an ideal option, allowing you to come with it both to business meetings and meetings with friends. It borders on the convenience of a business case, but, unfortunately, it looks confident only in the hands of a strong half of humanity.

Folders are also convenient for a business person, the only purpose of which is to carry a laptop from one place to another. They will provide the necessary protection against scratches, but not impact.

Backpacks will appeal to lovers of an active lifestyle, in addition, now there are “urban” backpacks, which include a laptop compartment, small shapes and bright sports colors.

When choosing the type of bag, remember – the main thing is that it is convenient for you!

Laptop bag dimensions

This is the most important parameter that you should pay attention to after you have decided on the type of bag.The size of your future laptop bag depends on the size of the screen diagonal, it usually ranges from 10 to 18 inches.

When buying a laptop, you probably paid attention to this parameter. But if the laptop was bought a long time ago, and the bag was needed only now, then you can determine the diagonal:

  • picking up a regular ruler. We measure the screen size diagonally and remember the math lessons at school: 1 inch = 2.54 cm. Using simple calculations, we get the desired size.
  • without a ruler by looking at the laptop specifications in the manual or on the box. There is also an option for the laziest: you can just turn the laptop over, see the full model name and google its diagonal. And then look at this table and find the size you want.

It should be borne in mind that usually bags with the specified characteristic “for 15-inch laptops” are suitable for both 14- and 16-inch laptops.The laptop should fit easily into the bag and, preferably, be secured with special straps inside. This will provide complete protection from scratches, so you do not need to choose a bag that is oversized.

Manufacturers make bags with a small margin to make the laptop easy to reach. If you are going to carry a charger, a mouse, folders with documents and other things in addition to a laptop with you, choose a bag with a large number of compartments.

Bag material

The quality of protection of the laptop from scratches and bumps, as well as its weight, depends on the correctly chosen material of the bag.

The best material for bags for this purpose is genuine leather. It allows the bag to “breathe” and you can wear it any time of the year. In addition, such a bag is waterproof, which is also one of the main factors when choosing a bag. Leather bags are versatile, making them a great option for frequent and daily wear. These bags look formal and elegant, suitable for both businessmen and business women.

Hard plastic and aluminum cases provide the best impact protection.But their disadvantage is the extra weight in the hand. Black briefcases and briefcases can resemble small suitcases, which will become relevant for lovers of retro style.

Nylon or polyester bags are the lightest in weight and are also great for everyday use. The textile bags have a special waterproof coating to protect your laptop from rain.

In our shop Mister Vollet there are bags made of genuine leather, which are distinguished by an unsurpassed finish and quality of tailoring.These bags are durable and will reliably protect your laptop.

In addition, for lovers of a bright and unobtrusive style, we present to your attention textile bags with colored finishing.

Finishing quality

The quality of the finish must be impeccable. The seams on the bag should be perfectly stitched, the sides should be sealed. There should be no plastic fasteners or locks on the bag – such recklessness can cost your laptop your life.

Brand

It’s great, of course, to buy a laptop bag from the same company that made it, but such bags are usually much more expensive. Bags from fashionable well-known brands will not necessarily become comfortable for you. The most optimal choice will be a bag, matched to your needs and hobbies, so do not rush to make a choice.

We hope our tips have helped you decide which laptop bag to use. Or maybe our special section will help with this?

The new Tortuga Setout series, which we have used on almost all of our travels lately, has become our favorite.The Setout Backpack not only can hold a 17-inch laptop and accessories, but it also has a ton of room for clothes. In fact, it meets the carry-on size requirements, but can hold clothes for a week if you pack it properly.

There are also many additional pockets for accessories, and a hip strap helps to distribute weight evenly when the bag is fully loaded (it also has a compartment for things you need to access frequently, such as your phone or passport).From interior padding to zip closure, the Setout feels surprisingly strong. For techies traveling from their suitcases, Setout is perfect. For short trips, the Setout also comes in a smaller size called the Setout Divide ($ 179). No clothes? Tortuga has a Laptop Backpack ($ 125) that features all the best qualities of other Tortuga Setout bags minus the extra space.
