I've been looking for a case but they cost as much as a backpack so I think this will be the smarter move. Please post pics and why u like/dislike it. Thanks!

I like the Tom Bihn Synapse (http://www.tombihn.com/page/001/PROD/100/TB0110).

That looks like a good quality backpack. But it does not seem like it is for laptops. And it is not as slim as I would like it to be. But thank you for options. Keep em coming!

FYI: I'm learning to try different search terms. MBA 11.6 = 11.8 x 7.56 x .68. Many (most?) map case shoulder bags are in the ballpark of 12 x 8.5 x 4. Still working my way through the hit lists....

Stylish? I dunno, maybe. Slim? Pretty slim. Functional and well made? Yes!

I just use a Jack Spade messenger bag but I'm not sure they make that size any more though.

I picked this up. Got it for 28 shipped! I wanted something small enough to carry my 11in air, ipad, and the chargers. I think this fit the bill. I will give more of a review when it comes.

If you are looking for something a bit more simple then check these guys out:

The "pop quiz" (scroll down) has the laptop sleeve. Picked one up for myself, nice and slim, classic minimal design that doesn't make you look like you are carrying some futuristic pod on your back.
