    I know their is a seperate thread for this but I am looking for a bit more specific help. I am trying to decide between the Boa.XM and the BP.3 however I am having difficulty finding someone who has used these.

    My concern over the BP.3 is that it is the size of a monster and will be too bulky however the Boa.XM I worry will not have enough room. Does anyone who owns or has seen these bags know about this. How much stuff can you carry in them, does it look bulky, not enough room, etc...?

    I recently bought the booqXM for my 12'' ibook and I really like it. I think lots of time was put into the design of the product.

    When I first opened the package, I was surprised at how small it was.. and in a way I was a little dissapionted; I wanted something compact but I didn't realize it would be this small. Theres lots of room for accessories but it can only fit one medium size textbook and a clipboard, so if your looking for a real backpack this isn't for you. I don't ussually carry my textbooks around and only a clipboard for notes, its perfect. But if you like carrying your textbooks or binders to work/school then I think it would be better for you to buy the Booq sleave and use whichever backpack/messenger bag you like (I don't like Booq's full size bags because I think they're way too big, its like something I would bring on a camping trip lol)

    Anyways, after using the XM, I might buy the sleave as well, that way I can use the XM for just the laptop or if I want to carry more stuff I can use the sleave and another backpack. :D

    I think I want a backpack and theirs seem to be just as large if not larger as booqbags. I liked the tekmod but I need something I can carry accessories, books, binders perhaps, etc...

    rock6079 - Do you have an iBook like you said in another post? I'm asking becasue I really, really, really like the tekmod. I plan on buying a 12" PowerBook before my Junior year, I'm finishing Freshman year now. However, I have a 15" Dell Inspiron now. I've had a lot of service done on it and feel a more protective bag may help. If I get the fullsize model for 15" computers now, how well will the 12" pb fit in it? You have a 12" iBook, correct?

    What about http://www.tekstyl.com ... aren't they selling the same bag?
