    Now i have a new i7 macbook pro, I would need a notebook bag to carry it in..


    I know people here go for the stylish Incase Sleve, as the "BEST protection", and while I agree, if it had pocks and a handle, then i would get it.

    So what other ones are just as good. I'm heading for these

    My previous one was the ProLite bags, which were good but too many pockets.

    Mainly, to hold my Macbook Pro, charger, cd/dvds. network cable, Airport express, and maybe some documents..

    Any recommendations?

    I'm using a Coach leather messenger bag. Looks terrific.

    I use a Tumi messenger bag; it doesn't have a dedicated laptop sleeve, so I use the Incase neoprene sleeve.

    Search Amazon reviews for macbook pro. I've posted various reviews there of different bags, the amount of padding, etc.

    I like to put my Macbook in a neoprene sleeve first before putting it in a case. This one is designed different then average. It puts a "condom" like slip on the end of the laptop before you close the zipper, preventing the MacBook from getting scratched by the zipper.

    13"

    15"

    17"

    I've had it about 2 months now and love it. Very well made, holds plenty, and rides nicely on my back. Looks good too!

    Will it fit in this sleeve with the Speck case on the MBP 13?

    I wouldn't recommend the Brenthaven Hard Case. I got one for the 17, and it left some scratches as it would slip out of the grooves and rub against the zippers when in the case.

    I emailed them, and while they responded immediately to my emails regarding a purchase, I never heard back from them again when I complained and asked for a return/exchange.

    They've lost my business forever, especially when I was looking for a backpack. I came across the Brenthaven TSA friendly one, and while I liked everything about it, my experience with the hard case pushed me to another product and company.

    I like this approach. The incase sleeve itself may not be a complete solution, but it can turn a lot of bags not necessarily intended for laptops, into the perfect laptop bag for your needs.

    I use my incase sleeve with an HP laptop bag I had from my last job.
