I recently have gotten a new 15 inch MacBook Pro, and now I am searching for a case. I did alot of forum searching for opinions on different bags, or cases for laptops and one that kept catching my eye was the Timbuk2 bags. It seems that those that have them are pretty satisfied. I would need a bag to bring my MacBook with me to my folks place occasionally, sometimes over to my girlfriends, and once in a great while to travel. I would most likely want to bring along a few books, magazines, camera equipment (I have a digital rebel and a digital elph, along with lenses and cords), maybe a small dvd album, and cables. Just wondering if those out there with any Timbuk2 bags could recommend something that could suit my needs? I like the style of these bags better than some of the bags that look all black, or look like a briefcase. Right now I am looking at The Commute and The Underground, any advice? Anyone have any photos they could share of their bags loaded with gear? And one final question, if I got one of these bags, should I also get a sleeve for added protection? The site says one isn't needed for the Commute bag, but makes no mention of such with the Underground, which also seems to fit all sizes of MacBooks. I'm still kind of on the fence as to whether I would prefer a shoulder strap messenger style bag, or the backpack. Thanks to anyone who can take the time to loan me some kind advice.
