I just picked up my new 17" MBP and absolutely love it. Avoiding the debate as to whether or not it's a desktop replacement (which is is for me, but my "desk" travels with me ), I'd like some opinions on what is the best bag to carry it around in! It will be living in a Speck Hard Shell case, I had one a few years ago on my old MBP and loved it! So, here's what I've found so far: Brenthaven 17" ProStyle III-XF Shoulder Case http://store.apple.com/ca_edu_125199/product/H1516ZM/A Thule 32L Crossover Backpack http://store.apple.com/ca_edu_125199/product/H6666LL/A As you can see my budget is around $130, but I'd go up to $150 for a good bag if it helped. Does anyone have experience with either of those bags? I'm generally more fond of shoulder style bags, but the Thule obviously has more room. Which is more "drop/crush" resistant? I'll probably be carry my MBP, an 8x10 notebook, a few pens, a 100Wh Hypermac Battery (in a few weeks, haven't ordered it yet, I'm currently nursing the pain from the MBP ) and an external drive. So, opinions?
