    Default Favorite Laptop Bag
    What laptops bags are everyone using?

    When I purchased my 17" PowerBook in December of 2005, I picked up the Brenthaven Pro 15/17 Backpack. While being rather pricey, I believe it turned out to be well worth it.

    The bag is incredibly durable. I've had it for over 2 1/2 years and it has yet to show any wear or tear. I had a scare in Las Vegas in the summer of 2006 where something dropped on my bag while it was checked at the Mirage and this bag kept off any heavy damage. It has a lot of protection around the laptop itself, but also has plenty of storage space for books/papers/laptop accessories.

    I'd highly recommend it!

    I've bought a bag off of eBay before that was super cheap but that I loved. It was black and was filled with memory foam, I have no link but check them out! It was for my 13" MB.

    Here's what I'm using:

    and carry it in this:

    Extremely durable, still looks awesome after a year and a half.

    Backpacks are for schoolkids. Or men who still act like schoolkids

    well lets see,

    i have a bad back so carrying a bag in one hand hurts.
    especially when it contains my mbp, external terrabyte, usb hub (damn dfu mode), plugs wires, etc.
    the bad back came from tattooing.
    and doing dumb kid stuff.

    so you're half right.

    Right now, I stuff my MacBook into my InCase zipper case and then stuff that into my JanSport Messenger Bag. I've been looking for a replacement as the bag is meant for a 17" notebook, but I'm not impressed with what's out there at the price point I'm looking at. I like the bag, it just has some quirks I wish it didn't.

    Moshi codex is very stylish, it only fits the MacBook but still verrrrry nice. Also toothfairys bag is cool( if I was a girl ) sort of like a mini Hermes Birkin.
