    It seems most of the Brenthaven bags on Apple's website have a 5-7 days+ waiting period (Some as high as 6-8 weeks!). I tried going to their website Brenthaven.com and it's not there. Not even any cached pages from google. Does anyone know what's going on with them? :confused:

    Edit: OK now the website works, but why such long delays for their stuff?

    Brenthaven sites OK for me.I did try and buy a 15" Backpack at the Regent st store and they were out of stock I was told it was a supply glitch,I did notice longer shipping times on Apple UK.

    All i know is that i have one for my 15" PB and its awesome. I can take out the sleeve when i don't bring it to class or i can just use the sleeve to carry my pb. its an awesome bag and i would recommend highly.

    Thanks for the info Skubish. I've been looking for a [physical] place that actually sells them so I could try it out first. I used to have one for a 12inch powerbook and now I'm looking for a 15" powerbook model.

    I know they've changed the design of the computer compartment on the newer ones. It looks like the computer protective portion is no longer a seperate "sleeve" but rather, it is integrated into the bag. I'm somewhat concerned because they seem to be selling one bag (the pro12/15) made to fit different sized computers and I don't know how secure that would be.

    Does CompUSA stock Apple specific models like the Pro 12/15?

    I have this for my ibook. It is awesome.
    The compartment for the ibook is integrated into the case. For the Fusion that make different models for 12" and 14/15".

    CompUSA has the Fusion. I don't know about the other models.
