I want to take my laptop as I need to its related to my work. However it will not fit in my hand luggage it is heavy (HP pavillion g6). And I've been searching online and a lot of people have said they get stolen if you put it in checked luggage. And I tried looking for hand baggage in accordance to qatar dimensions but I just can't find any. Am I able carry the laptop in my laptop bag over my shoulder? And if I do carry it in checked baggage do I have to take it out or anything? What could I do so I can take my laptop with me and prevent the risks of anything bad happening.
Yes, you can bring laptops on board, and yes, full-service airlines like Qatar will let you bring a laptop bag in addition to your carry-on item.
Do not check in your laptop: not only is there a risk of theft, but it can easily break, get water damage, etc.
