There are so many messenger bags and briefcases out there designed for laptops -- but what about purses? Laptops are small and light enough to carry to and from work daily. Just as many women as men stare at screens all day. How come there aren't any bags out there with feminine styling and a dedicated laptop pocket? As I plan to switch from a 15"cMBP to a 13" rMBP or Air, my 1998-era laptop bag -- designed for a 3-inch-thick 14" laptop and already way too roomy for the cMBP -- it's becoming clear that a new laptop bag is in order. And, anticipating carrying this around to social situations and occasionally walking home alone late at night, I really want something that doesn't scream "I'm a woman carrying a briefcase/messenger bag because there's a laptop in here!" Something bottomless like a "hobo bag" with enough space to also shove a sweater in there, and a small bottle of water, and an umbrella, and maybe a scarf, and a book, and a few little things like a phone and wallet and a pack of gum and whatnot would be ideal -- because this is the city, and without cars we walk around with our lives in our purses. Yeah, you can drop a laptop in a sleeve and let it loose in your purse, but that doesn't protect it from shaking around or thoroughly separate it from other items that might spill or leak. Not to mention that it's awkward to always be fishing around your laptop to get other things in and out. So far I've seen exactly one option, but it's pretty expensive (I'll link to it if anyone wants, but this isn't meant as a thread to advertise it.) Surely I'm not the only woman who wants a bag like this? Has anyone else run into any great women's bags with laptop pockets?
