    hi, i've had my macbook pro for a while now, but still don't have a case for it. The only suitable cases i've seen are just boring black. I want something that looks slightly more stylish and isn't too bulky. Anyone have any ideas where i can get one?

    Bag or sleeve? Crumpler make cool bags and Foofshop.com make sleeves that sure aren't boring. Then again, the Booq sleeves are black but pretty damn stylish...

    Here is what I'm seriously considering right now.

    A bit on the pricey side, but the reviews I have read say they are excellent. What do you think?

    incase bags/sleeves are pretty nice, you can find them on Apple's store website

    I really like my Incase I bought from the Apple Store.

    I got a thin satchel type in Orange. It has a ultra soft microfiber type lined interior and a few small pockets. I can take my MBP, AC Charger, Remote, & Thumbdrive all at once in a very thin package.

    the acme Clyde looks even better, albeit pricier.

    I just picked up an STM Evolution bag (http://www.stmbags.com.au/smallevolution). Quite nice, and have used their bags for years without any problems. I have a 'Small Loop' that's been around the world with me three times (carrying an IBM Thinkpad X40). Can get them at Radtech (http://www.radtech.us/) if you're in the US.

    STM definitely worth considering. I have a Large Convertible for my 17".

    I bought the brenthaven bag which is nice, but not totally aesthetically appealing. I have heard quite a few about the Timbuk2's. http://www.timbuk2.com/tb2/retail/catalog.htm?categoryId=85 Those seem pretty good. Don't worry about if it says powerbook 15" my friend has one of them and says his macbook pro works. I don't know since mine hasn't arrived yet. It's sitting in the distribution center waiting for me. YAY! :)

    if you want something not simply like a black executive, you should look at crumpler bags. some people on this forum swear by them and their site is DEFINITELY anything but boring black.

    wow i see someone recommended jack spade bags and they're really great and stylish but are by no means budget or mainstream. =(

    No slight intended, just making note that the macbook/mbp bag threads are kind of numerous, so you might find even more help searching for previous threads on the subject. I found some here with the forum search and here using MRoogle. :)

    TechAir is pretty reliable. Have one and have been using it for a year now.

    I bought one of these for my Macbook and am really pleased with it. Depends what you want, I liked its simple stylishness and doesn't look too slickery dickery. This is for their macbook pro range:

    I have this and love it. it has a spot for a phone right on the shoulder strap as well. This one is for the MB Pro but it is also available in the 13" version.

    I own this. It's the small loft bag from STM. It's perfect for your Macbook sizewise.

    I bought it from a site for $44.
