I like Waterfield's case designs:

www.sfbags.com

You can get a large messenger bag, and a sleeve for the book. The sleeve can be set up so that you can use it stand alone (with D rings and strap, flaps, etc...) when you're not travelling and the large cargo bag is probably more than enough storage.

I'm waiting for them to get more RacerX's in stock.

nobody ever writes about these guys (except for their leather laptop sleeve sold at the apple store) but i really like their Back Pack. just got mine in the mail yesterday and i think it's pretty damn close to perfect. not too big, not too small, stylish, simple, holds everything you listed, even has sleeves for cd's and credit cards. it's comfortable to carry and has separate areas for the laptop and other stuff.

oh yeah, and it's only $80! i just went to their site and they're throwing in a free ipod belt now. check it out, you'll love it.

I have a Crumpler (http://www.crumplerusa.com/) Rucksac for my TiBook and it's great!

they have a good mix of shoulder, messenger and specific laptop bags.

Dude, if you are looking at getting a messenger bag, the ONLY bag to get is a Timbuk2

Their website is www.timbuk2.com


These are the bags that professional messengers use. They have a lifetime warranty. I've had mine for 3 years and have had no problems. You can completely customize them from the company and pick the colors and materials you want. Their craftsmanship is top notch, it has to be with the way these bags get abused by bike messengers!

They even make a 17" powerbook sleeve if I'm not mistaken.



EDIT: changed massengers to messengers

The Brenthaven Bags are great I have one for my TiBook and could not be happier. The only down side that I have found is there is so much room that I tend to bring things that I don;t need. Oh Well.

Tom Bihn (www.tombihn.com) makes really nice messenger style bags and backpack solutions for laptops. My wife uses the ID, which is nice because the laptop compartment is a seperate item it can be removed and carried seperately when you run out of room in the bag. I'm using a $40 Monolith inside my regular Kelty backpack. (I didn't want to buy a new backpack when I got my PB.) Good, tough, made in the USA bags.
