    I use the North Face Surge backpack to carry my MacBook. It seems as though it would easily be able to fit a MacBook Pro, however

    I have the North Face Surge for my 15" MBP and love it! The rear compartment fits my MBP like a glove. If you are considering getting a backpack I would def go with the Surge

    I use the North Face Hackler for my 15" MBP. The laptop compartment is inside the main compartment.

    I use the North Face Mentor for my MBP. The sleeve compartment fits well. I didn't want something overly bulky...I go to class, not to Mt. Everest. ;)

    I just got a Borealis, fits my 12" powerbook perfectly with plenty of space to hold a 15". The laptop slot also works for a camelbak, which is nice if I want to do something else with the space. :)

    I have some piece of crap I got at Mervyns because I'm not climbing a freaking mountain.

    Jeez... you pay too much for your computer, then turn around and pay too much for a bag to put it in. The nicer that bag looks, the more likely it is to get yoinked.

    i stop buying crap bags due to the fact that they are crap. i still have a couple of quality bags i got thats been around for at least 5+ years. all the cheap ones i got only last like 6months. i tend to change new bags because i eventually find another bag that has more uses for me like one with a laptop compartment. i dont buy new bags because they're nice, i dont have money to throw away. i buy them because i need them and i will spend good money on them because i know they will outlast my usefullness for them (usually 3+ years). where do you leave your stuff where its gonna easily get jacked?

    I am also looking for a North Face. I currently have one for school that is a bit old (8+) so I need a new one. They have awesome bags but which one fits the MBP 15" perfectly with a sleeve?

    my northface surge fits my 15mbp with incase shell with a little bit of room. depending on how thick the sleeve, i believe it will most likely fit tho.

    I got a North Face Surge too. It's great. Feels a little stiff on your back, but that's to help protect your laptop. It has plenty of space for books and peripherals. I got mine for $80 with free shipping and a free Nalgene water bottle at http://www.o2gearshop.com

    I got my bag for $30 (down from $80) on http://www.steepandcheap.com :D

    I can't stand when the zippers on cheap bags wear out, it's just about the most frustrating thing ever. And I do plan on climbing mountains and skiing down them while wearing my backpack...though perhaps not with the laptop inside it haha.

    I wasn't aware that there was an '08 model, but it looks like I got the '07 model. I'm not sure if there is a weight difference, but it looks like they just updated the look of the bag.
