    Brenthaven makes some great bags. I am in the same boat cause I just got a job that requires me to travel 95% of the time. So where I go the mac goes.

    I bump the post

    bag

    I have a Tumi laptop case. I love it! I do a lot of video editing and various other things on the road. This bag has a lot of little pockets and what not to let me store cables etc. It also has a sleeve the laptop fits in that is removable for those days I just want to carry it around. Build quailty is outstanding. Hope that helps

    I have the Oakley Vertical Bag and like it quite a bit. I find that I prefer the vertical bags to the horizontal ones.

    Adobe Messenger Bag. It may be a bit too bulky for you, but its the ultimate laptop bag, as far as I'm concerned.

    first of all, thanks for all of your replies guys! I'm thankfull!

    I like it but haven't heard about the quality of the brand...is it real good that if I fall down, the MBP will survive for sure?

    wow, really, is that good? I think I'm buying that one...if you have a link to a good online store with a better price I wouldn't get mad :)

    screensaver400, the Adobe website is not working when you try to order and I suspect this maybe be (as the Oakley bag) around $200, which I don't have for a bag!

    I think I'm in reaching my conclusion with those two I first posted...which again will decide if I buy a Brenthaven or a Incase...what are the differnces really? which the best brand?
    again, thanks to everyone!

    The Oakley bag is about $90 - I think I paid slightly less when Oakley had a sale going on.

    Take in consideration that Brenthaven come with a lifetime warranty. And if your plan to stick with the future 15" models, that you are pretty much set for life with that bag.

    As I stated in my last reply, I'm looking for a bag as well but thinking of deciding on the Brenthaven. I owned one for my 15" powerbook before selling both and it was awesome.

    I have this one and a messenger bag from Tumi. the Tumi was more expensive normally but I bought it with Delta miles. They are both great bags but the Tumi holds more so is heavier. I actually switch back and forth between them depending on what show I am working and what junk I need to have other than the computer.

    Hope this helps,
