Hi All,

I am looking for a bag that is made for the macbook air. I want something lightweight, small and only has a few pockets. It can be a messenger bag or backpack but must be small.

Which of these two do you think would be better?

I'm thinking the first would be a little larger with more room.

Thanks,

Greg

I own three Tom Bihn bags. All are top-notch.

I will never buy another brand.

Does this answer your question? ;)

I use a M90 with my Mac Air. Great bag. Warrantied for life. I purchased the size up as liked a little extra room. The bag is not large and has pockets inside for things. Just right.

I recommend.

Greg, I'm a big fan of the Higher Ground bags. I have the Shuttle, which is lovely, convertible, solid and minimalist. Their Laptrap has some extra pockets. Here's a review from TUAW:

I go everywhere with my Air in its Shuttle. Terrifically pleased.

Brenthaven makes a great one. It's under 3" thick, weighs almost nothing, and offers great protection. Holds the Air perfectly, with a pocket just big enough for an external hard drive and the AC adapter.
