    Do you carry it open latch up or open latch down?

    I usually carry it latch up, but latch down seems so much... Easier?... I dunno...

    Also,unrelated to this topic, does anybody find it a bit tricky to type on the MBP keyboard sometimes?

    I like the latch size, since the vent side has sharp corners; also I'd rather just keep my lid shut.

    I carry it in a sleeve

    When it is closed, it is rather tricky. :)

    Typically open, with thumb on the trackpad, drinks balanced on wrist rests.



    Seriously, I've never paid attention to orientation when picking it up.

    Lol, you know what I mean. :p

    I'm just asking because sometimes I'll tap a key too "lightly" and it won't read... I'm sure I'll get used to it, but maybe it's just MY writing style. :p

    In a simple, black neoprene sleeve (upon which it sits when in use. ALWAYS.) hinge down.

    I carry it hinge up.

    I have trouble typing too sometimes on my MBP, but that's maybe because of the zCover silicone keyboard cover I have on my keyboard :confused:

    Yea, the latch size is pretty sweet, as far as latch sizes go, that is.;)

    latch up. i think the rubber on the hinge is some sort of grip for me.

    Ever since the hinges brew out in my G3, I always put the hinges up in the bag. I think it puts the least amount of pressure on the hinges.

    Hinge down and closed when I carry it from desk to desk; in a briefcase when it is being transported anywhere else.
    Cheers

    I carry it hinge down in a notebook case, and as for the typing it was a little hard at first but now it's super easy in fact almost too easy!
    I have a silicone cover on the keyboard as well

    I must be awfully lucky. I just wave my hand & mine levitates to my destination. Upon arrival there's no fingerprints in sight.

    LOL.... :)

    If I buy an overpriced computer like a macbook pro, I should be able to put it into my bag in any orientation without having to worry about things breaking.

    Usually with latch up when around the house. Haven't taken it out of the house yet but I did buy one of those snazzy Picaso Lab sleeves and I have a backpack as well.

    Well, if I’m in the middle of using it I carry it open with two hands - Otherwise I just carry it under my arm.

    "Never trust a computer that you can't pickup"

    I just chuck it into the next room. Or kick it across the carpet. Works fine. (Kidding)

    I guess I've never really paid attention to how I carry it. Often though, it's in a leather bag over my shoulder. Otherwise, I just grab it. Dunno, whatever feels good!

    The only thing I'm really OCDish on is my pockets. Cellphone, upside down (so you reach in and grab it and are holding it in the proper orientation, i.e. dock connector faces up) in my right front pocket, keys left front pocket, wallet back right pocket. If any of those items are missing, or in the wrong pocket.. it just ain't right!
