    If you're using a sleeve, it would probably do fine in any backpack. Or you could get a laptop bag in a slightly larger size to accommodate the added sleeve.

    I have a STM Medium Loft bag (made for 15" laptops) and I'm pretty sure a Macbook + sleeve would fit just as well.

    Depends on your budget...

    if you've got budget to spend, and want a GREAT bag, I'd highly recommend (no affiliation other than extremely satisfied customer/zellot) Tom Bihn bags.

    I have an Empire Builder (http://www.tombihn.com/page/001/PROD/300/TB0730) and it's hands down the best bag I've ever had. It's spendy when you deck it out (which you should by adding the Absolute Strap), and you'll need a brain cell (size 1 works great for my 17"), but it's an amazing bag.

    I've got at least 5 bags in the basement I never use anymore, and I could easly have gotten another one of these with all the crappy bags I've gotten and never use anymore...

    Sorry if this sounds too fanboi to be credible :)

    i brought a techair bag from ebuyer for alot cheaper than the apple site were selling them for, and even if it is for a 15 inch macbook pro, it is still a very good fit and i have dropped it many a times, and with no damaged delt to the macbook great bag, some storage space for papers, cables etc.

    basically go with techair, althought it is a little bulky but i dont mind great (Tech Air 3507 Messenger) is the model i have

    I think in the 'MB accessories' thread, someone posted a Word doc containing a load of different cases... not that the above aren't good suggestions!

    I like Crumpler a lot too.
