    Tom Bihn are my favourites. The Monolith in particular. Just drop the laptop in there and then drop that in any old bag you have. The new (as yet not-shipping) size 4x is specifically for the MacBook Pro.

    If you really love your Macbook, carry it between your chest and your shirt secured with a belt around navel height. :cool:

    But then you need a skin cause of sweat!

    A geographical oddity
    Take a look at the Marware sleeves - I think it is nice enough that you could just throw it in any backback (which I do)

    15.5 in and the laptop is 15.4.

    The Executive IIe from Avalon:

    The catch is that it is bulkier than some, as it is heavily padded to try to absorb the shock from falls, and have enough compartments for business documents, and computer peripherals. For those doing airline travelling it seems to shine there, as you can use it as a carry-on and have room for books, adapters, PDA, etc.

    you forgot that the Intel chips run cool, so there won't be any sweat, now a G4 powerbook, that would be hot. :p
