Anyone have a recommendation for a good Laptop bag (not backpacks), preferably leather bags. I have seen a few online from Hammonds Flycatcher, HiLEDER, Wildhorn etc but not sure on the quality, and reviews are pretty mixed.

i bought twice from local shops for my elder brother when he couldn't decide in a similar situation. it was locally manufactured and sold; priced around 3500 and 4500 (bigger with more pockets). he used it too roughly for few years witout any care and then asked me to get another one and then 4500 was bought. he was too satisfied with both.

I'm not keen on backpacks. Already got one that came with my laptop, is a good one though. Was thinking more on the lines of a formal office look bag.

Did look at a few local shops in my area. About 4-6K, but the quality of work did not match the price.
I am very cautious about anything that I buy and take good care of it. Previously had a laptop bag from VIP which lasted me well over a decade. Only gave it away because my new laptop was too big for it.

there are a lot of people involved in leather work in my city & nearby cities so if checked at proper place, we get very good quality leather items.

Lenovo laptop bags are good. I got one when purchased new Lenovo laptop. Many pockets soft back cushion comfortable.
Used one time for long trip bag was on shoulder for more than 4 hours. No pain and pressure on shoulders. Balanced distributed weight equally.
Couldn't find the bag but similar to this.

If you choose to go for a leather bag, make sure you get one with real leather as opposed to synthetic or bonded leather. A sturdy leather bag will last you decades across several laptops and will be comparatively easier to patch or repair. Synthetic leather and bonded leather will crumble away and leave a mess.

For cloth bags get a Samsonite when there's a decent sale going on, unless you're in urgent need of a bag. It's like the baseline for quality at a value price, except they have started repositioning themselves as upscale over the last 4-5 years. Cheaper bags IME cut corners with the stitching or the hardware.

I have a laptop backpack from them since 2013 and I still use it regularly. I did manage to tear one of the straps in the cushion within a year of use (not sure exactly how it happened) but the store got it repaired (although it doesn't look as nice as when I bought it) and I have yet to cause any damage to it since then. Even the synthetic rubbery bits are not showing any signs of cracking or crumbling.

Get it from Offline showrooms. Amazon has sometimes items worth ignoring. Genuine leather bags should basically starts from 5k in offline stores

I have started to see deformed text and icons on my laptop whenever a video is playing/paused on a browser or on VLC, as in pics attached. Problem disappears when I switch to different tab or window with the video still playing. Also the screen sometimes flickers when scrolling the browser page in which video is playing. This does not happen all the time and only after a few hours of use. Hardware acceleration in browser is turned on.
Laptop is Acer Nitro 5 (i5 11400H, 8gb RAM, 3050Ti 4gb)

I have a asus vivobook laptop(M509DA to be exact). It has Ryzen 5 3500U processor. It comes with 4GB soldered ram and 4gb Stick for a total of 8gb ram. Now I am thinking of increasing ram on it.
So my question is if I remove the 4GB stick and add 8GB or 16GB ram stick, Will I lose dual channel benefit as it will become (4+16)(total 20Gb ram) Combination.

If I lose it, what will be the impact on performance? Will it have severe impact?

I want to use it for VMs and less ram is causing issue. I cant upgrade to a better laptop for next 1.5 years so will have to do with this.

You will lose the dual ram benefit but the most impacted will be integrated ryzen graphics performance so if not gaming/encoding videos using integrated graphics hardware acceleration then it isn't an issue.

It wud be minimal use like only for playing video on chrome(when not using vm) or watching Movie in vlc. 0 Gaming or graphic intensive work is to be done.

Any estimate percentage for loss in performance??

It only has integrated gfx. So hope issues like video stuttering will not arise.
