    Howdy Folks!

    I just bought a 12" Powerbook and am looking for a bag for it that has pading that will protect the laptop and also have extra briefcase space for books, folders, notbooks, etc. Apple carries the Timbuk2 Commute bag which looks like a nice one. Anyone have this bag? If so, do you like it? Any recommendations on other bags out there?

    yeah, I'd definately say do a search of the forums because there have been many threads on this topic. However, while I'm posting, let me just say that I have a Timbuk2 bag, and I absolutely love it. Build quality is fantastic, and it has saved my powerbook from near destruction many times. It's definately a product I would recommend.

    you don't need any special kind of 'PowerBook' bag. i just got a regular backpack, no specially designed laptop compartments or anything, but it does have a pocket where i put my PB.

    it's not really the bag that protects your laptop, it's more you and how you treat your bag and laptop. if you're rough on your gear, then nothing can protect your PB from... YOU. :eek:

    Spend some extra cash and get a Brenthaven bag. I have a 15" pb and love this bag. I can load all my big music scores into it and it holds all my powercords and stuff.

    Get yourself a sleeve and you can use any "bag" you like. But if you go without the sleeve, it is absolutely imperative that you remove all pens, paperclips, coins, etc., from whatever you carry it in. I've heard horror stories of things finding their way into slot-loading optical drives, not to mention the scratches that can occur.

    I've been totally satisfied with timbuk2 sleeves but there are many other options out there (see Duff-man above).
