    I am looking for a backpack to use with a 15'' MBP, but would like to purchase it in person so I can try it out first. I live relatively close to San Francisco... can anyone recommend some stores to check out there? Thanks!

    try the timbuk2

    I've got one of these and like it a lot - very good build quality, stylish (imho), and they've got a laptop size guide on the website. You should be able to find a local retailer in SF or get one online.

    I've got this one: http://www.timbuk2.com/tb2/retail/catalog.htm?categoryId=85&skusetId=29

    I don't have a macbook, but according to the sizing guide on the website, it should fit depending on the model and bag size.

    I have a Swiss Army backback that I would recommend to anyone.
    It has a nicely padded laptop "area" and still has tons of storage for accessories etc. I believe I got it from Staples for under $40.

    Haha, for whatever reason it didn't dawn on me to check out the local Staples and Office Max (our Comp USA recently closed). The Timbuk2 and Crumpler bags look quite interesting, but like I said, I'd really like to check them out in person.

    Don't forget Best Buy, Circuit City, and yes, even Wal Mart...
