    Hey guys,

    I am needing a 17" compatible briefcase because my backpack is starting to look a little tacky in meetings. Does anyone have any advice?

    I searched the threads and found one that was helpful but I am looking for some more options.

    Note: I need to stay away from bright color, messenger bagging, looking products and have something that looks very briefcase professional likel

    Have you checked out Matias Laptop Armor? They are very nice cases.

    Would this be professional enough for you?

    Whoa... I remember seeing that before and yeah I think that might be the way to go... Holy Moly that thing is awesome. Do you have this.

    Here is a link if anyone stumbles to this thread in a later date: http://www.matias.ca/laptoparmor/index.php

    I also like this one. But I either want leather or (now) aluminum.

    Any other thoughts anyone?

    I was in your shoes not to long ago. I felt rather silly strolling into meetings with my clients in a Hugo Boss suit ... and sporting my, not so professional looking, Targus backpack...

    I bought the black one with the sleeve. Can't go wrong, very nice quality, very professional looking...what more could you want? :D

    That thing is amazing looking..... So damn expensive once you add the sleeve and junk... Damn damn damn amazing looking though... Very sleek and would be so awesome in Brown and Black...

    Hows the protection on that thing though? That aluminum case sure seems nice since it is so so protective.

    Would you want to post a picture if possible? That would really help my decision making...

    I have a MaxProtect II for my 15" PB. It's inexpensive, very snug, doesn't weigh much, and looks pretty business-like.

    I like it but need to fit documents or actually need special sections for documents or my life would be come very cluttered and mixed up.
