    Does such a thing exist?

    I just ordered my 17" Macbook Pro (still feeling nauseas from that price tag, dear lord!) and I'd like to buy a nice bag for it. Something with the look of a handbag would be nice. I don't imagine I'll be carrying such a huge laptop to class often, so a handbag style would be best.

    I've found plenty of stylish bags for 15" MBPs but absolutely nothing for the 17". Apple.com has one that claims its for the 17" but the dimensions don't match up at all. Which is strange. Regardless, it was very ugly and too expensive.

    They had one brown suede bag (for the 15") that was absolutely gorgeous, and I'd love to have something that looked a little like it, but honestly I'll settle for anything practical that doesn't look too "business"-y.

    Any suggestions?

    Go on, get the Acme made one, you won't regret it.

    Every time you put your Macbook pro in it you'll be glad you did and you'll look oh so stylish.
