MacBook Air carrying bag / case

Sorry if this has been covered already, didn't notice any similar threads in the first two pages (other than the accessories thread, which didn't cover bags).

I'll need a carrying bag for my new MBA, does anyone have any suggestions? Preferably on amazon.com?

I would like one that's light and has room for the MBA, its charger, and maybe a notebook(optional) and pen(optional)

Btw, if you're going to reply with "google it" or "do your own research" you're of no help and please don't bother replying.

With new Apple releases comes new accessories for those releases, I'm interested in anyone who has recently purchased a carrying bag to carry the new MBAs.

I'm sold on the BookBook:

http://9to5mac.com/2011/05/25/vintag...meets-the-air/

A bit pricey, but I think rather worth it.

BL.

It would help if you told us whether you have the 11 or 13-inch also.

totally loving this one. anybody any experience? I would just throw it in my backpack and wondering if that would be enough protection for my air?!
Also, do I need something between they keyboard and the screen? I heard that on some earlier macbook models you could see the keyboard demarcation on the sreen.

I wanted a genuine leather sleeve for mine. I have anincipio sleeve which is well made and I'm pleased. However I have since met someone with a Joli sleeve and was jealous! Bit more expensive tho.

It's amazing how much stuff you can pack in there.

You should check out the cases/bags at http://sfbags.com. They are a bit expensive, but really high quality. They have a couple of different choices for the MBA.

I love this sleeve, but reading the reviews...apparently it's too small for the new MBA? Anyone have any recent information about this case? It's only $20 so it's perfect for my budget. Or does anyone know of anything like this?

The one for the 11 inch exposes some of the sides and all of the top. Maybe the 13 does too. A buyer said that seams on his are coming apart.

Pay double for Incase and you get all around protection. Even the edges are padded because of the circumference of neoprene piping.

It haven't shipped yet so I dunno really. I live in Sweden though and it will be shipped from Germany, so once they ship it shouldn't take more than 24 hours. I hope to have it before the weekend.

For some reason every time I see that bookbook case I cringe, I really dislike it.

Check out the range from Incase and Booq.
