    I'm looking at buying a Knomo Stirling bag for my MBP.

    It has two magnetic closures and I'm wondering if these could have an adverse effect on the hard drives in my MBP/iPod.

    I guess not, otherwise their designers would surely have noticed!

    Trust me the magnets in your HDD are a lot stronger.

    Pretty much the only think you shouldn't do with put your HDD on something like a subwoofer magnet.
