Is it safe to put a laptop in a carry on suitcase?

Jump to last reply

I have a small laptop but it's not small enough to fit into my purse, since I'm going carry on only and I have other stuff to fit in the purse. I really don't feel like buying a bigger purse, so I'm thinking I'll slip it into the front pocket of my carry on suitcase.

Is that a bad idea?

I have a protective sleeve that I put my laptop in, but Im not sure if I'm still risking getting it damaged when trying to lift my suitcase in and out the overhead compartment, or if it were to fall from the overhead. Obviously if my bag needed to be gate checked I'd take the laptop out.

Thoughts?
