    I'm looking for an Air sleeve which fits into a 15" typical notebook space, and also incorporates some sort of sub-sleeve for PSU's, etc. Anyone have suggestions? Thanks

    There is one out there - a neoprene sleeve with added pockets on the front for such stuff... I'll see if I can track it down for you Sesshi.

    Found it:

    Built NY Cargo Laptop Sleeve

    Thanks for the suggestion. However - I was thinking more on the lines of a sleeve beside an inline separate compartment.

    They have a few bags that you can purchase as a combo along with their sleeve. They have different configurations for the sleeve, but you can get it with a top velcro loop so its a separate sleeve, but doesn't have to be removed from the bag to get the laptop out.

    I already have the bags. The sleeve is wanted because the 13" MBA almost takes up a typical 15-inch-accomodating space in a bag but rattles around inside, while allowing nothing else hard to be put in the same space. So ideally I'd like something that could accomodate both the Air and the PSU + other bits safely inside the same cubic volume as a typical 15" notebook.

    Check out the Brenthaven Trek Sleeve for MacBook and MacBook Air shown in the Apple store. It appears to have what you are looking for in a case.

    Looks good - thanks very much. 14.5"W should be a nice snug fit.

    The Built seems incapable of properly accomodating a PSU but this looks like it'll have no problems.

    Any other suggestions welcome.

    They have a sleeve for the air, and the dimensions seems to be pretty good.... also doubles as a compendium... the A4 size would fit most of my documents....

    i have been through several different air sleeves. i also have a backpack that i used to put my macbook pro in. i found the best solution for filling the void and protecting the air is the waterfield. very nice bag and offers the dimension to fill the compartment designed for a larger laptop. i bought a vertical orientation bag and added the flap. air slides in and out nicely. i had been using an incase neoprene sleeve. it was nice, very minimal, sleek, but i almost sent my air flying on a daily basis trying to work it in to the very tight opening (and yes i removed the foam shipping buck) give sfbags a try.

    The sleeve I use is made by Case Logic; I think it was orig. designed for the standard MB, but the MBA fits inside with very little movement, and the seams near the zipper protect it from the zipper slide. It has a zippered pocket on the front that the power adapter fits nicely in.

    They have an MBA-specific sleeve, but it doesn't have the pocket. Also, mine came from University bookstore, so it has a logo printed on it on the center of the pocket.

    Thanks. Nothing so far that makes me go "Aha!" but I'll sift through the suggestions. I was hoping that the AC adapter could be stored in a pocket in the same plane as the notebook itself, i.e. not in an outside pocket which effectively sits on the body of the machine.
