Re: [PhillyOnRails] MacBook Choices

The Timbuk2 Commute bag is very nice. Has a padded pocket for the notebook and enough room for charger, iPod, a book or two. The medium is a perfect fit for a 15 inch PowerBook so it should fit the 15 inch MacBook Pro as well. catalog.htm?categoryId=7

I went with a Brenthaven:

I have had it a little over 2 years - use it everyday.
 It has held up very well.  The only down side is that
some times I wish I had a smaller backup bag - this
bag can carry a lot...but it is not everyday I have a
laptop and several books along for the ride.

I am thinking of getting a second bag, been eyeing
this one:

I have the 15.4" MBP, and I kind of wish I had

don't have a real
regret about it, but a smaller form factor would
be nice.. Anyone
recommend a great messenger laptop bag?

I am in agreement with the 17" being too big. I
have the 15" maxed
out, and
when I seen the release with the 17" being
almost identical, I was
pleased with it. My brother has the 17"
powerbook, and it's huge.
To throw
it in your backpack and bicycle downtown would
be a _choice_ with
the 17",
with the 15" it's not really a decision :)

Yeah I think I'll definitely be making a stop
at the Apple Store
to check it
out.  Thanks for the thoughts!

With the
of the 17" being cheaper then a 15" (both

I'm tempted to go with the 17". I currently
have a Toshiba
Tablet which
only a 12" screen so I'm not sure if the 17"
will be way to big
or not.
Anyone out there with a 17" have any insight
into how "clunky" it
is. Is
the extra processor and RAM worth the extra
cash? I usually max
since it stays closer to the top of the line
longer that way :)

Any thoughts?

I got a Dell with a 17" screen because I
wanted a desktop computer
replacement, and it's great to work and watch
movies on. You
definitely find yourself considering and
reconsidering whether you
*really* need your computer when you go
places, though. As a
it's annoying because the only bag it fits in
is its big, leather
laptop bag.
