How would a 13" MBA fit into a 15" Laptop Bag? (Messenger bag from Incase: http://www.goincase.com/products/detail/nylon-messenger-cl55340)

Unfortunately Incase doesn't manufacture a smaller one (Not that I want a smaller bag.), but I was wondering if putting a 13" laptop into a 15" slot would damage the laptop because of the extra space which the laptop would shake around in and potentially be damaged in.

If you can afford such a relative expensive MBA than you should be able to buy a good case aswell. The waterfield sleevecases are very good.

I don't really like cases much - one more thing to take out/put in, wouldn't it? I've looked at the waterfield sleevecases before, and I don't really like the look of it, and also would like to retain the aluminium 'nakedness' of my laptop.

Has anyone had any experience with a 13" laptop in a 15" laptop bag?

I am using a Targus Crave for 16" but looks compact small for a 13".

I have my MacBook air in a incase coated canvas messenger bag, and while it is loose inside, the cushioning hasn't really bothered me. I have thought about getting a sleeve, particularly the leather sleeve from incipio, but I don't really think I need it.

I have my 11" in a 13" original white MacBook sleeve. Works fine.

Easily. With 2 inches to spare.

If you drop it it might get dented, whether it's a 13" or a 15" case.
