Catching a plane in the US? If you have the right sort of bag you no longer need to take your laptop out when it goes through the security scanner.

Our prediction: big delays as travellers get used to the TSA’s finicky rules about exactly when you can leave your laptop in the bag. There must, for instance, be “no metal snaps, zippers or buckles inside, underneath or on-top of the laptop-only section.” And remember: this only applies to the Butterfly, the Sleeve and the Trifold.
