    Okay so I have done a lot of searching and I cant find a backpack that would be suitable for my macbook air 11. Heres what I'm looking for..
    -Something slim, small, and light
    -Decent price
    Basically something that will be able to fit my computer (with sleeve) and charger that is compact. I'm not interested in messenger bags. I can't find anything that fits this criteria from the other topics after a lot of research. I'm a college student so I need something I can carry on my back everywhere with me. Anyone have any suggestions?

    I've been searching for the same thing as you! I looked at a lot of options, and I just ordered an Arcteryx Quiver sling pack for $90. I won't have it until early next week, but I could post my impressions then if you'd like.

    This is definitely a sporty type pack, so it may or may not be what you're looking for. It was the only thing I found that was compact and had the style I wanted.

    I looked at a couple other packs which you may want to consider: the Osprey Daylite ($40-$50) , Arcteryx Fly 13 ($80), or the Black Diamond Bbee ($50).

    As you can probably tell, I have a thing for outdoors-y packs :)

    I have a small sling-style leather backpack I bought on a trip to Europe about 10 years ago. I put the MacBook Air inside a sleeve, and carry it with the backpack. Works great.

    If I were you, I'd browse; seems like they've got virtually every bag made today.

    I honestly think a 'conventional' backpack will do since were dealing with a MBA. But that's just me.
