Default For Onsite clients....

What do you use to carry your stuff around? I am thinking about something like this. Between my 17 inch notebook, DVD's, Zalman's, IPAD (Custom Contact Manager) USB Drives, DataVac, ECT.... This stuff starts to add up.

Please share with us what you use.

I use a really awful sling bag for my MacBook (that's inside a hard case for safety) and some cords. BUT, I lug around a tote full of cables, AV I'm selling, testing equipment, and my loaner machine.

That bag look really nice though. Might have to put some money aside and pick one up.

I carry a Swiss Army Backpack that holds a laptop, various cables, signal tracer, external HD for sale, wireless router, my own external drive and disks, and basic tools. http://www.luggageonline.com/product...FQ5ThwodLhn3kQ

I have a smaller secondary bag with other tools and equipment that I fill and take in as needed.

I have a set of 3 plastic drawers in the back of my car that I keep needed supplies. http://www.target.com/p/sterilite-wi...i_detailbutton

Umm. Why a 17" laptop? I can do almost anything I need onsite with an iPhone. When that's not enough, I have a small 14" laptop as backup.

Maybe look at simplifying? Saves your back!

Agreed. A netbook and a smartphone are all you really need. Everything else you can do on the clients computer.

Because I have 3 sitting around, also have a netbook (too small to type) I will at some point have to redo my setup, but tell then, will have to do with what works.

I have a smallish 14" sony Vaio for onsite work, I sold our netbook to a customer they are too small.

Most of the time though I end up taking my personal laptop to the job which is a full sized (15") thinkpad. I'll be honest though the Sony would be far easier to take on site I am just being lazy by not calling in to the shop to go and pick it up.

As for what bag I use, I have an over shoulder "record type bag" that I picked up for a bout a tenner.
IWhen I was on site only I used to have to carry everything so I used this http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/DEWALT-WOR...item2a1bc606f0

I bought one of these 2 years ago and I'm sure it was less than half the price now.
