    Hi Everyone!

    I'm going to a study abroad session in New York and am excited but will be poor after it :(.

    My setup is a Mac Mini, 17in Studio Display, keyboard, and then the Lacie Mini HD. -extras are the power supply for mini and display.

    I saw a student on campus lug this huge suitcase-thing that was made out of black, matte, poly plastic. It had all these compartments and foam to cushions in them. He didn't have any ideas for me. His case held his 17 iMac pretty nicely!

    I don't want to lug two huge suitcases when I get off the plane, not to mention another carry-on and backpack! I need a case to hold my setup that isn't bulkier than my suitcase that holds clothes and all that wonderful stuff. The reason I need a container for my computer setup is because the school doesn't supply computers! And they designated studio space for the students. That means I would have to bring my setup back and forth, so something that is easy to wield would work great!If I had the money, I would get a MBP, but I don't...unless someone wants to buy my mini :)

    Any suggestions?

    You could also look into travel cases for theatrical equipment.

    Thanks

    Truz: Thanks! That would be what I am looking for. But I would need it to accomadate my current computer setup. Some wonderful products you've shown me! I'll have to look into those if/when I get a laptop.

    Techound1: I will look into Theatre cases right away!

    Oh!

    Maybe this would work!

    How about an iLugger case? It is designed for the 17in iMac and 20in iMac. Would I be able to stick a 17inch Cinema Display, keyboard, and Mac Mini in that?

    Does anyone own an iLugger?

    Shoot them an email and ask them if it will hold all that you ask. I'm sure they can help you :) I don't own one or else I would be more then happy to answer your question.
