I put my macbook air into a sleeve and after that I am putting this sleeve into a back-pack to carry the laptop.

Ok, the laptop is protected from bumps because the sleeve is thick and the back-pack also is protective but could be a problem from the continuous move? Is the laptop fragile in the inner part of it? I have heard from people that I know that their laptops (non-apple) while they were moving, they suffered damage inside them, as cables were loosened,RAMS de-soldered, stopped charging etc..

Have ever had someone of you a similar case?

Thank you. I am trying not to load the bag too much...

Everything inside the Air is tightly fastened to the case. Connections to the logic board and secured in-place using clips and clamps.

You'll be fine. I've been using and carrying my 2013 13" Pro in a backpack for many years with no component failures.

This is hopefully not a new iPad Pro which I would not put in a backpack because of bending problems....So it should be fine.

The old Air design is really sturdy. I've been carrying that thing on the road with me for years in all sorts of positions and types of bags and never had an issue.
