Bothered by laptop bags

February 15, 2013

Question/Comment:

Please allow us to check out laptops without the laptop case.

Response:

This is one of those simple things that becomes much more complex with volume. Our Equipment Checkout System actually has 50(!) laptops – keeping track of them normally is challenging, and it turns out to be unworkable if we separate out laptops and chargers from the bags (in storage, the cords and chargers are kept inside the bags). If we have empty cases in storage, then we have to reunite them with returned chargers. In short, the whole business is kind of uncomfortable to even think about, and the more I write about it the more sad and afraid I get.
