Although it is easy to go with the cheapest option, you should really invest in a quality laptop bag. Your laptop bag should provide a lot of padding and organizational pockets. It should keep your laptop protected even if you drop the bag.
When you are home, make sure you don't put your laptop in any precarious situations. Placing your laptop on a couch or a bed is just asking for trouble. Additionally, don't string your laptop cords across the room. One single trip on a wire and your laptop could bite the dust!
Drinking and computing doesn't mix -- especially when it comes to laptops. Keep your liquids away from your laptop and avoid using your laptop near bodies of water.
When in public, you should never leave sight of your laptop. Even in a seemingly peaceful place such as a library, if you walk away from your laptop, someone else may walk away with your laptop.
Consider installing a program that will help you track your laptop in case it is stolen. There are many programs that claim to be "LoJack for laptops". By using such a program, you actually have a chance to locate a stolen laptop.
Utilize passwords on your laptop. Considering its size and ease of portability, you have to plan for the worst. If your laptop is stolen, passwords should keep the thief from stealing your personal information.
