    I have not seen a thread about backpacks. I'm looking for a new backpack that will hold both my 11.6" air and my work laptop which is a lenovo 12"x201. I have a swiss army but it is a tad big now. For those of you using backpacks, what would you reccomend that is suitable for business?

    I've had two:

    My current:
    Ful Ditty mini backpack (black):

    My former:
    Timbuk2 Pisco (black):
    http://www.timbuk2.com/tb2/products/pisco-backpack

    They both have a pocket inside the main area that fits my 11" MBA AND iPad 2 perfectly. I switched to the Ful Ditty because I wanted something MORE compact... If you're carrying around 2 mini laptops, go for the Timbuk2 pisco.

    I use my backpack the same way except I go to school and work and so I also need room for books and such.

    Try the level 8 Atlas

    https://www.level8cases.com/products/1517backpacks.php

    It can be bought online or found in the Apple store.

    I store my 15 inch my mac Air my external hd, all of my cords and connectors, My school books, my work folders, Digital recorder, and my superdrive in this backpack and still have room left over. It is not too big and is a very good build quality. The price is steep at 100.00 but if your like me and want maximum portability mixed with maximum protection then this backpack pays for itself.

    I absolutely love my BBP backpack. It's a professional looking urban bag with just enough pockets. Minimal, yet still utilitarian, nothing in excess. And they're on sale!
