I'm going to the Apple store to purchase a 13" laptop today! Thanks to those who offered their opinions. Now I'm in the market for a laptop sleeve and backpack. I'm one of those people who like to buy things that are still made in America, and I've found two products that fulfill that. Chrome Backpacks and Colcasac Sleeves Are these products worth the price premium? The reason I'm interested in the Chrome Backpacks is that they say they are weather proof (which is important for where I live) and extremely tough. Does anyone have experience with Chrome products? Also, I'm not sure which size to get. I'll probably need to fit in a text book, a macbook, and a few single subject notebooks. Now onto the Colcasac products. Once again, does anyone have experience with this companies products? Do they offer nice protection? I'm open to suggestions so feel free to try and sell me on a particular company or item.
