    Hello all!

    I am going to place an order for a new, high end 15" MBP at the online Apple store. I saw that the store recommended me the "Brenthaven Edge II" notebook case. Can anyone -who has used this product- tell me if the fit is good enough for a 15" MBP?

    Also, if anyone has any other case suggestions, please do let me know! I am looking for a very thin, lightweight case- but providing adequate protection for my machine. The "standard" sleeves are lightweight and thin, but they might not offer the bump protection that I am looking for.

    Also, I plan to use a 20" widescreen monitor from Acer, which supports only VGA input. Based on my understanding, I think that MBP ships with a DVI to VGA convertor... please correct me if I am wrong. Other than that, would there be any issues plugging the MBP to the Acer monitor?

    Thanks a lot!

    The Tom Bihn ( Brain Cell sleeves seem super protective. I went with an Archetype instead, since I loved the styling and can live with slightly less protection (about on par with a regular sleeve, I'd guess).

    Yes, the MBP ships with a DVI to VGA connector. There shouldn't be any problems with using your monitor.

    I have seen the Brenthaven cases at the Apple Store.
    Very, very nice cases. I would buy one.

    ...and for the 17" MBP?

    I have a 17" on order. What cases do people like for those?
