Best Macbook Pro 13" Case...

Hello!
Got my Macbook Pro 13" last week and totally love it, no complaints, miles beyond my old iMac, its fast for anything i throw at it. And anyone who moans about the glossy screen all day, basically needs to get laid
But right now to keep it as clean as i can, end of the day i'm putting it back into its own box, and its getting to the point where i need to take it out, especially for college!
I looked at the wiki here, but some of the links i click, they just show an 'out of business' page, while others show huge bags which could rival the size of a table..
I basically want a smallish case with a discreet handle that will be able to protect the macbook if the case was to be dropped, with a slip/zip pocket that could hold the charger and my portable HDD.
And it has to be black
Any recommendations really appreciated, thanks!

Since you require something with a handle and a pocket I would recommend a case from Marware.

Either the Sportfolio or Sportfolio Deluxe.

These can be had cheaper with coupons straight from the website or other third party vendors.

I use Waterfield cases.

The Incase deluxe sleeve for MacBook pro's. It's very high quality & is sold at many apple stores.
