    Greetings ! :D

    I need a Backpack & Sleeve for my 15" Macbook Pro. Yes, I've checked the Advice on Buying Laptop Case or Sleeve sticky and It was very helpfull on finding tons of backpacks but left me with a hard decision!

    I'm a College student who needs room in his backpack to hold Macbook Pro, Mighty Mouse, two small books, calculator, Ipod Shuffle, and a pen. Also Im looking for something that has some sort of style to it.

    Heres a list of backpacks I liked, I'd really appreciate it if you could tell me any experience with the listed backpacks or any you would recomend for me. Im thankfull to all replies!

    Mac Case -
    Mac-Case Backpack
    Mac-Case Sling

    Targus -
    Sport Backpack
    Trademark Backpack
    Urban Backpack

    Timbuk2 -
    Ace Day Pack
    Bucket Day Pack
    Lula Day Pack

    I think the Mac Case backpack & the Timbuk2 are my favorite so far.

    I was in the same business some weeks ago, and for price and quality I got the NorthFace Recon (69$) and the In case for Macbook (29$) and It really protect my computer, is the best thing to do (I think that)
    Good luck

    Well even if you can't try one on asking for others that have is a good move. :)

    I don't have one of the packs listed, but I know the topic of bags has come up often enough that you might find additional threads with a forum search, if you haven't done that already. ;)

    For the record: My Booq pack hasn't let me down for an instant, but they aren't exactly affordable. :(

    Ahhh doing a search would help, thanks! I forgot to mention my price range, anything under 100$ :D
    Edit: Did a search. Alot of threads but mostly on Messanger Bags.
