Starting Saturday, TSA will allow passengers to leave their laptop computers in bas that meet new "checkpoint friendly" standards.
Bags that provide a clear, unobstructed view of the laptop are considered "checkpoint friendly." Here's the rest of the criteria for the proper bag:
-- must have a designated laptop-only section
-- the laptop only section must completely unfold to lay flat on the X-ray belt
-- no metal snaps, zippers or buckles inside, underneath or on top of the laptop-only section
-- no pockets on the inside or outside of the laptop only section
-- nothing packed in the laptop-only section other than the computer itself.
