easyjet – hand luggage allowance 2012
This bit of rules is unambiguous – when flying with easyJet you can carry on board one item of cabin baggage only. It cannot be larger than 56×45×25cm including handles and wheels. No additional items – such as a laptop – are allowed.
In case you do not comply with the rules, your hand baggage will be checked
in and transported in the aircraft hold. It incurs an additional fee of
£25/£40 depending where you were caught with additional baggage (respectively
check-in counter/boarding gate).
As far as the maximum weight is concerned, the website states that passengers „must be able to lift their bag safely into the overhead lockers themselves without assistance, so the weight must be within reason.“

Checked baggage is not included in the base fare. It is something one has to purchase and it pays off to pre-book one's baggage online. The online charge is £9 per flight for a bag weighing up to 20 kg and £18 for return flight. One may also pre-order luggage exceeding 20 kg and pay £21 for each 3 kg increase in weight.
You may also want to know that you can pool your baggage allowance with that of any person you travel with.
If it turns out you exceeded the weight allowance of 20kg, be prepared to pay extra.
