    Yep, I said non-slim. Reason being, I have a smaller shoulder bag for it on a day to day basis. But the bag doesn't hold much. So if I want to take it in my book bag, either of the bags I have, have larger pockets for laptops.

    So I either am looking for a case that is hard and larger, or a book bag with a better (smaller) pocket for a thin laptop.

    I've spent hours on Google but I keep finding the manila carrying case for example...I don't want something like that.

    OMG what is hard to understand? Either a new book bag or a case. I don't want another freaking messenger bag. I already have that (as I stated in the first post and re-iterated in my first reply).

    Seriously people, I appreciate the help but read before you rush to hit the reply button. Even if you completely ignore my repeated comments that I don't want another messenger bag (either a BOOK bag or CASE), you're suggesting a bag for the 11" MBA when I said in the title I have a 13". Why not just tell me what kind of car you drive instead, it's about an equally worthless piece of information (in regards to this thread).

    I bought a speck case, received two by accident. Either way, both did not attach to the bottom of the air in the right... always flexed. Both (clear) got dirty and scratched very quickly as well. I just bought a black Incipio case... great case. Two cons though... covers the apple logo and prevents a mini display port cable from fully touching the metal body. But it works perfectly for me, love it.

    Travel Express and the Wallet, both from sfbags, are the only two bags I've read about which might meet your criteria - they aren't messenger bags, and are a little larger than your normal sleeve to hold accessories.

    I haven read any real reviews of either, just found them doing my own research.
