    I just got a 17mbp with everything. the only problem is that my backpack for school doesn't have padding etc on the bottom.

    I'm looking into getting a steel case or something harder than a simple incase sleeve that covers it.

    I do know that they make steel cases (not briefcases) that can protect your MBP that don't cost as much as my apple care did.

    Does anyone know of a decent case out there that's a hard shell.

    I'm simply worried about how compacted everything is within the computer and would like to keep it that way!

    Thanks to anyone that has suggestions!

    yea that's the idea, but it costs $229, and there's no way i'd pay that much for a case!

    any other ideas ?

    Check the Rebound, it offers more protection than a conventional neoprene sleeve.

    " It's made from high resistance polyurethane foam that seems rigid on first touch, but actually compresses and indents when impacted. The foam then slowly expands and reverts to its original form. This slow compression and rebound release acts as a shock absorber, spreading the impact of sudden bumps and jolts and generally providing a higher level of protection."

    I carry my MBP around in a Booq Vyper Sleeve inside my backpack - it's not a hard case by any means, but it is semi-rigid and protects it very well:

    You pay what you get though. Buy a cheap case and it might end up being more likely to damage your Mac.
