Nicole Richie Carries a Bare MacBook Pro To DUI Class

Do You Ever Carry Around Your Laptop Naked?

How can a girl who is such a handbag aficionado not have an equally stylish laptop bag? This is the question I thought of when I saw Nicole Richie carrying around her MacBook Pro to her DUI class, no laptop bag or sleeve in sight.

I know Nicole shells out for Balenciaga, so maybe she just needs someone to point her in the direction — maybe a YSL laptop carrier, or a gorgeous Bottega Veneta?

In any case, she needs to protect that Pro soon, and it also makes me wonder: Do you ever schlep your laptop around sans case? I would never — only maybe in an emergency, since things that get placed in my hands are generally dropped with gusto. Do you ever carry your laptop around naked?

I have changed bags many times depending on what I'm wearing. All bags are not always especially made to a hold laptop so I'm VERY careful. I want the perfect laptop bag but I haven't found it yet. I'm a Business Systems Architect and I would be in $!@%*! trouble if I damaged my laptop.

I rarely take my laptop out of the house but if I do I use a vera bradley bag since I still haven't purchased an actual notebook bag.

i notice a lot of people lug them around naked at conferences but i'm a clutz and would inevitably damage it some how. i recommend a sleeve for those quick runs and a bag every other time. but always cover up!

I don't even own any cases for it... Yes, it has smudges and spots all over it, but it gives it character!

Do You Ever Carry Around Your Laptop Naked? Yes... in more ways than one. This may be TMI, but sometimes I'm naked while I'm carrying my laptop around naked. But only in the privacy of my own home with the curtains closed. Heehee. I didn't take my precioussss anywhere outside of home until I bought a protective sleeve for it, though. Just as I don't go outside until I put some clothes on.

Can't say I leave the house with my laptop naked. I like to protect my belongings.

I only carry around like that at home. Any time it leaves my place, it goes with protection.

I don't own a laptop bag yet since I never take my laptop anywhere; I do own a messenger bag that it would fit in however I would love to buy a stylish laptop carrier.

Only once: when checking in at London Heathrow, I could not have two carry-ons, so I had to take my laptop out of my briefcase, put the briefcase in my luggage, and continue with my naked laptop and purse. How that did not equal two things beats me.

As a gal who works in the internet industry, my laptop is everything so I ALWAYs have it in a protective cover. I'm surprised she is carrying that huge laptop. I think she should get the YSL bag.

YES - only when i'm at my uni library and i need to get more books. i bring all my valuables- wallet, cellphone and laptop and leave all my notes, books on the table so it doesn't get taken while in gone getting my books!

Only in an emergency. Other than that it is covered at all times when not in use =)

Hahaha - I completely misinterpreted 'Do you ever carry around your laptop naked?'. I then went on to misread the first poll option as: Yes, AND I have been known to occasionally take my laptop places without a case. I clearly have a major case of Friday-itis.

The only time I take it anywhere naked is in between my classes.

Only in my living room, late at night when the curtains are closed (to keep out any pesky peepers). But I sometimes get burned. :p
