    I just just picked up the previous generation MBP 15.4" and now am looking for a case.

    I would like something thin and light like a sleeve, but I also need some space to carry the power brick and a mouse.

    These are the ones that I have found so far...

    Acme Made The Slim Cargo - $129-$249
    Brenthaven MetroLite II Black - $79.95
    Booq Boa Slimcase M90 - $115
    Waterfield HardCase - $239

    Does anyone have any experience with any of these or have a recommendation for something else that suits the bill?

    My only other concern is that I want it to be able to fit the new MBP as well. I would hate having to buy another case down the line since some of these cases can be quite expensive.

    Booq and Waterfield are grand. Waterfield makes a sleeve with a pouch (that makes it into a case) that is no where near $200 - see if that will fit you bill.

    And don't forget to look for coupon codes to knock a little more off those prices too!

    that Brenthaven guy cracks me up.

    You have a handful of choices already.
    have you started leaning towards anything.

    *Brooq makes a nice looking product.
    *Brenthaven has their lifetime warranty.
    *Waterfield doesnt seem too luxury in my eyes.

    id go for the brooq...looking at it more...i might go ahead and order one for myself!

    I really like the WaterField hard case and it got a lot of good reviews, but it also has a high price tag.

    The Brenthaven looks like it will do the job, but I'm not sure how I feel about that pouch look.

    The Booq just doesn't seem to be my style not to mention it's 3.4 lbs. That's 1 pound more than the two I listed above.
