Laptop on Ryanair?

Laptop on Ryanair?

As I understand it I am allowed 1 cabin bag, max 55 x 40 x 20 cms, and 1 small bag, max 35 x 20 x 20 cms. A standard 15" laptop is slightly above the second option (35 x 24 x 2 cms roughly). Anyone know whether a laptop with those dimensions will fit in the thing anyway (by placing it along the diagonal & tilting it)?

I'd really rather not have my laptop in the cabin bag should it be placed in the aircraft holder, seeing how carelessly they load them on.

No it won't.

Thanks, I didn't think it would. What a pain.

Just take it out and carry it on board if they gate-check your bag.

Book a seat and PB and you are guaranteed that your hand luggage will stay with you.

I saw a chap last week at BRS who had his laptop on straps around his neck like you would carry a camera. He just seemed to walk through with it and the other large bag.
