Yes, but you can stuff books in your laptop case to change the
weights for different exercises. If the laptop breaks, just write
it off. It's important to think ahead on these things.
As for the other commuters noticing, usually they'll notice just
enough to give you all the space you need (which is another
reason for exercising on your bus, train, or ferry).
