Timbuk2's efforts to enter the world of laptop backpacks has produced some of the best packs on the market. The Parkside an Q provide durable and comfortable backpacks for packing your laptop away while you go about doing your business. The Parkside is a laptop pack designed with protection in mind. As you walk around with your laptop, you're going to have some bumps here and there.

A few bumps can seem harmless but over time they'll damage your precious hardware permanently. Timbuk2 built the Parkside for this specific reason. The Q doesn't offer as much protection as the Parkside but it certainly provides more comfort. It won't keep your laptop as safe but it's far easier to carry around. Buy it if you want to avoid awkwardly handling your laptop.
