    Hi everyone. I am looking around at bags for my (future) MacBook Pro. I'm looking for at messenger type bag that has room for maybe a few very small things, a pair of SR-80's (Medium-largeish headphones) and my Macbook. All that I have been able to find so far in this style are very large bags for lots of books or papers. I was wondering if anyone has or knows of a small to medium sized bag.
    Thanks for all your help
    -Ian

    Thank you all for your quick replies! I'm likening the Incase and the STM bags. Anyone else know of other similar products? Also just a quick question about the MBP, how much ram is it capable of taking and how does it come in 2 gig "stock" from apple (2Gig x1 or 1Gig x2)?
    Thanks

    I use a Tumi messenger bag, but it's not exactly slim, but it allows me to carry my essential stuff.

    If you don't want scratches, just get an InvisibleShield: http://www.zagg.com/invisibleshield/apple-macbook-13-inch-cases-covers-skins-shields.php

    As with the RAM, if you have a Santa Rosa platform MBP, then it supports up to 4GB. The stock is 2x1GB configuration in dual channel mode. Honestly, if you don't need the extra RAM.

    Go get it! It's very worthwhile.....had a Powerbook 12" before and similar one protected it from scratches within whichever bag i put it in. :D

    High quality BTO bag

    Hi, I recommend the sfbags http://www.sfbags.com product line, especially the sleeve case, which is customizable and built to order! I have one myself and it is everything it is stated to be on the site. Take into account that a horizontal sleeve causes less wear on the integrity of the lid and main body configuration than a vertical one. Oh, please note that on the side that touches your body it has a "sleeve" for documents or several magazines. Best of all, you get in touch with the maker of the product, who keeps you informed on the order status and answers all of your questions promptly.

    The MBP comes stock with 2x1GB = 2GB RAM. If you want more, here's a source...

    This may sound absurd, but eBay is the place to go.
    People sell millions of laptop bags. And it gets annoying if your not looking for a bag because there is so many.:D

    Zippered bags are scratchy..

    To all those suggestions on zippered bags I will state the obvious, there is always a chance that you will scrape by the zipper if you are not paying proper attention. Once will do. Therefore I always opt for velcro.

    Agreed, the tucano cobra I linked to uses velcro, then a pullstring, then more velcro - keeps it very secure without zips.

    not true... the zipper never comes close to the MBP in a well-designed sleeve, like the Vyper M2

    I am also looking to get a bag sleeve combo for new mbp coming on friday... i hope... What are the pros and cons for the anti-shock sleeves? When i was a PC user everyone raved about them.

    They don't work as much as you hope; they can only withstand a scratch or bump, not a drop (not like the T6x :p)

    So basically there is no difference between the neoprene sleeves and the anti-shock sleeves? That's disappointing.

    The anti-shock sleeves are either foam padded or they are built into bags with elastic, which doesn't work either.
