Nowadays you can buy checkpoint friendly bags, this would you scan your laptop at security check like Airports, Malls etc. If the area where you live in has a higher risk of flood than prefer buying water proof laptop bag.
Check the bag size and the overall quality of the bag. Checkpoint Friendly laptop carry case shouldn't cost you more than 50$
