    I need to get an inexpensive backback for my new MacBook for college. It needs to have room for some books and a bluetooth mouse. Any suggestions?

    think a sleeve (I have an In Case one) is better than a laptop-backpack, cause you can switch bags if you want. And they're less dorky :p

    I was looking at the Targus Groove backpack, I saw it on it was only $15 at but then it went back up to $30. It's one of the the cheapest ones around and doesn't look bad at all. I saw it at best buy for $30 as well...still waiting to see if it goes back on sale.

    There are so many nice looking backpacks on the Apple site but the really cool/nice ones are like $100 or more!! Such a shame... but I'd rather spend a bit of money and have my laptop protected than go cheap and have something happen.

    Seconded. I have Gimp sleeve that protects my Macbook, and it goes in any bag.

    Crumpler all the way man, they're a little bit more expensive, but TOTALLY worth it, the best quality bag I've ever used. I use the Dreadful Embarassment bag and it's HUGE! more space than a standard backback, but it doesn't look huge. you can't even tell if there's a laptop in it, less chance of it getting stolen :D Totally worth the little bit extra spent. check it out

    I'll third that. I have a Tucano neoprene sleeve for mine and I can shove it in whatever bag I want. I have my eye on a cheap messenger bag from Kohl's that isn't oversized and looks like it'd fit my 17" nicely. Them's my thoughts.

    I like my booqbag. They are high end... so not cheap. But they are very high quality. check em out.

    Can anyone here recommend the OGIO Metroid backpack? I've been looking into it and am wondering if anyone has any experience with it.

    I had strongly considered getting the Booq, but since North Face stores are more accessible for me, and the customer service/warranty on it is fantastic. i was pretty much told that I have a lifetime warranty, and if anything happens, I can bring it back to the store (with receipt) and exchange for another one or have them send it to the factory for repairs.

    North Face Surge!
