Abstract

A laptop pc bag provides not only a standard laptop carrying case for carrying and protecting a laptop PC but also a desk. The height of the bag can be adjusted by extending the legs as far as desired, from approximately six inches to thirty-six inches, thereby providing the right height of the desk for the user. This allows users of all ages and sizes to take advantage of bag in its desk format, regardless of where they are. The legs ultimately provide the user more freedom with their laptop PC and will allow the user to perform the tasks at hand in an easier and more comfortable manner than previously possible. A considerably more versatile laptop bag is provided, one that can be transformed from a normal standard laptop carrying case into a portable workstation, for today's more versatile user and workplace.

Description

    CROSS-REFERENCE TO RELATED APPLICATIONS
  • [0001]
    This application claims the benefit of U.S. Provisional Application No. 60/470,369, filed May 14, 2003, and U.S. Provisional Application No. 60/505,225, filed on Sep. 23, 2003.
  • BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION
  • [0002]
    1. Field of the Invention
  • [0003]
    The invention relates to bags and stands for notebook personal computers (also known as, PC's or laptops).
  • [0004]
    2. Description of the Related Art
  • [0005]
    Notebook PC's have changed how business is conducted by providing the ability to access your computer on your lap: hence the name laptop. However, as the notebook computer evolved and uses and needs therefore grew, the notebook computer became a more important part of everyday life. Unfortunately, most people are still using laptop computers on their laps, which is not a very comfortable way to work.
  • [0006]
    Business travelers need a desk at which they can work when out of the office. However, any portable desk must comply with airport security guidelines. In particular, parts of any portable desk should not be able to be disassembled into any potential weapon.
  • SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION
  • [0007]
    It is accordingly an object of the invention to provide a convertible laptop PC bag to workstation with legs that overcomes the hereinafore-mentioned disadvantages of the heretofore-known devices of this general type and that provides a carrying case that can convert to a desk-like workstation wherever the user takes their laptop.
  • [0008]
    With the foregoing and other objects in view, there is provided, in accordance with the invention, a convertible laptop pc bag & workstation, including a standard laptop pc bag, and three adjustable legs. The invention enables the bag to transform into a desk.
  • [0009]
    The invention, an improved laptop carrying case, has the ability to turn into a desk regardless of where the user is. The legs are lightweight, yet very strong, and fit neatly in the bottom of the laptop bag when not being used. Once the legs have been extended, one has a desk to work on rather than your lap: thus, a more ergonomic comfortable working position. In addition, since there is no direct contact between the laptop and one's legs, the bag can virtually eliminate the chances of leg burns, which can occur from the extraordinary heat laptops can reach, as high as 140° F. Finally, since the laptop computer is in the confines of the bag, the computer is protected at all times, rather than being completely exposed, possible leading to the computer being more easily dropped or broken.
  • [0010]
    More importantly, according to an Intel article published in March of 2002, “92% of all corporate travelers use a laptop pc while on the road.” Additionally, and even more recently and compelling, for the first time ever, in quarter two of 2003, laptop computer sales outpaced desktop computer sales, proving the growing trend of laptop popularity. Therefore, this invention is one that will likely be in great demand.
  • [0011]
    In accordance with a further object of the invention, the adjustable legs will provide an improved laptop carrying case. A more comfortable working environment for the user while using their laptop will serve multiple uses and overall will provide a more user-friendly, enhanced laptop bag. Further, this enhanced laptop carrying case will remain economically comparable to the existing standard laptop bag on the market. The actual bag will be a standard laptop bag, similar to one found in a computer store or one that comes with the computer. A preferred size is approximately fifteen by seventeen by eight inches. However, the bag will be manufactured in different sizes to accommodate various size laptop computers and other versions such as, but not limited to, a briefcase version made of leather, aluminum, or plastic, a portable DVD Player bag/stand version for viewing, a wheeling version more appropriate for airline travel, a hair and make-up case and stand, a disc jockey/music carrying case and stand, etc. All the previously mentioned embodiments can be made of various materials.
  • [0012]
    In accordance with a further object of the invention, the bag can be made in various sizes, various colors, various materials, and various formats and purposes, for example a portable DVD viewing bag/stand made of leather. The DVD version would be considerably smaller bag than the average laptop PC bag.
  • [0013]
    Above are listed various formats for the bag, such as the briefcase version, and the DVD player versions, as well as different possible materials and sizes for the bag and legs. However, the favored format or best mode is the standard black nylon bag, with the lightweight, heavy-duty black anodized aluminum legs, with rubber stoppers at the ends to provide a stable non-skid base.
  • [0014]
    In accordance with a further object of the invention, a single leg can be attached to the center of the bottom of the bag. A tripod at the bottom of the leg stabilizes the workstation.
  • [0015]
    With the objects of the invention in view, there is also provided a second embodiment of an improved laptop carrying case that has the ability to turn into a desk regardless of where the user is. The legs are lightweight, yet very strong, and fit neatly in the laptop bag when not being used. The four legs individually screw into the four designated sockets on the bottom portion of the bag. Once installed the user has a desk on which to work, rather than their lap.
  • [0016]
    Other features that are considered as characteristic for the invention are set forth in the appended claims.
  • [0017]
    Although the invention is illustrated and described herein as embodied in a convertible laptop PC bag to workstation with legs, it is, nevertheless, not intended to be limited to the details shown since various modifications and structural changes may be made therein without departing from the spirit of the invention and within the scope and range of equivalents of the claims.

Legs 20 are exposed by unzipping flap from leg compartment 24. Legs 20 are in a desk position and are at their shortest form, providing elevation from the ground, ones lap, or surface that one is working on. Additional compartments, which may or may not be added, may include small pockets for extra cords, computer accessories or personal items.
  • [0036]
    [0036]FIG. 6 is a perspective view of leg 20 once it has been extended out to its greatest length, preferably, thirty-six inches. The adjusted height is determined by placing the spring-loaded button 26 into respective holes on legs 28. This feature will be similar to an aluminum adjustable walking cane.
  • [0037]
    [0037]FIG. 7 is a perspective view of bag 14 in its final form as a desk. Legs 20 are at their longest length, completing the transformation from bag to desk. Legs 20 are fully extended, and spring-loaded buttons 26 are locked into the respective holes on legs 28. Flap 24 hangs down in the back so legs 20 can be exposed and extended out.
  • [0038]
    In operation, one uses bag 14 in a normal manner, for carrying and protecting. Once the user has reached the destination where he or she plans to use the laptop, bag 14 turns from a carrying case into a desk/workstation. One can adjust the height of the workstation appropriately for the user's most comfortable ergonomic working position.
  • [0039]
    [0039]FIG. 1 shows the bottom side of bag 14. It is in this part of bag 14 where the user will find leg storage compartment 16, which is where legs 20 are housed when not being used. The user will carry bag 14 while it is in its bag format, by carrying it by handle 8.
  • [0040]
