OK so I *FINALLY*joined the rest of the world and got myself a travel-size computer.
For various reasons I opted for a 14" model rather than the easier-to-carry netbook...and now I'm wondering if I can safely pack it on the bike. I heard somewhere that laptops travel best lying flat. How bad would it be to stand the thing on edge in one of the side-cases (inside its padded carry-case of course)? How much protection from vibration need I worry about? I ride an R1200GS with Micatech cases.
Or am I worried about nothing?
