    Hi

    I am looking for a bag/backpack which will hold both my 15" Macbook Pro and iPad snug and safe. If you really recommend individual cases then any recommendations for them would be appreciated. Thanks.

    To my knowledge there isn't a bag that is made to fit both, and I'd just keep my iPad in a separate case.

    I'm a big fan of the BBP Bags Industries Backpack.

    Booq

    Booq has a backpack that is sold exclusively through a limited number of Apple retail stores. It is designed to carry 15" MBP along with an iPad and Apple Bluetooth keyboard. Looks nice but a little pricey.

    This is a great backpack (not anything special to look at) but it has a large compartment at the back section which has two sections. YOu would still probably want a neoprene sleeve for either the iPad or MBP but it would keep them safe and sound.

    Targus Backpack

    It also has great pockets up front for binders, notebooks, and the usual other compartments for writing instruments, etc. It has several smaller pockets and a water bottle holder on one side and another padded compartent which works great for an iPod or a coke can. There is also a small cell phone holder on the strap- it also fits an iPod Touch ok.
    What I like best about this backpack is lots of space without tons of bulk. Some of the swiss backpacks and such are so freakin' bulky- this isn't streamlined by any means, but isn't on the other extreme either.

    That being said, any backpack which has a nice computer compartment and another second section beside it would work if you got a neoprene sleeve for one. For that matter- if you got the right kind of neoprene sleeve couldn't you just put them in the same padded compartment?
