What a day!

I pulled the trigger on a base RMBP with 16gb! So I will finally upgrade from my thinad T60 with 2GB. Woohooo!

So, to be totally up to the time I also want to make sure that I will carry my new baby in a nice and safe way around.

So I am looking for a cool and practical backpack (that I could also use for my ipad and some other stuff).

I am also thinking of how much sense does it make to get a case or some other kind of protection for it.

Any ideas/ recommendations?

Thanks all!

I really like the Booq line of products. They are specifically meant for Apple products, with spaces for iPads, etc.

Anything that fits the 15" MBP should fit the MBPR.

I wouldn't bother with a case. Cases just add bulk, and unlike the iPad or iPhone, the case won't really protect the MBP if you are such a klutz as to drop it.

There are several hard cover cases available for pre-order on Amazon. They're about $30 and it says they'll ship on July 10. Search for 'Kuzy Retina MacBook Pro hard cover case'.

By that time there should be some cases available from other, more well known manufacturers though so I'd suggest waiting.

You pay for quality. Like the zippers that you probably wouldn't think twice about for example are probably ykk excella. They're made in the USA and cost $10-20 each but are some of most reliable zippers for sale.

Speck's website lets you enter your email so they can update you when the Retina versions are available, seems like that's the prevailing preference on these forums based on some other threads.

I found on Ogio backpack on clearance once, really enjoyed it. The laptop sleeve fit my 15" 2010 really well and it was just a well put together backpack.
