My new JanSport laptop backpack fits me great and has padding on four sides of the computer. I realized, however, that there was virtually no protection at the bottom of the laptop sleeve. Fortunately, I found a quick fix.
For this hack, you will need:
-1 chunk of foam , about .5" thick.
-Exacto knife or razor
Step 1: Gather Materials
Step 2: Add Voids
If you have any protruding elements attached to your computer, you'll want to cut a hole in your chunk of foam to accommodate them. I got lucky and had a piece of foam with a hole already in the center.
Step 3: Insert Foam
Just drop your foam piece into the bottom of your bag. If you want it to be extra secure, add a loop of duct tape to the bottom of your foam.
Step 4: Done!
That's it! Now your laptop will be protected from vertical impacts.
