Is the laptop case the new briefcase? It’s starting to seem that way, at least in certain (high tech) circles. We’ve noticed a proliferation of sleek, stylish storage (and toting) options for your laptop, whether you’re a Mac maven or a PC loyalist. Here are five great options for toting your laptop in style.

Above: Gray Felt Sleeve from commeca fits a 15-inch laptop and is made from 100 percent merino wool felt: $62 on Etsy.

We all have Mac laptops at Remodelista but can’t agree on the best case. Which one do you like best? Or do you have a favorite to nominate?
