god thats one expensive bag, hell im from the UK so it would probably be even more expensive (as everything always is!!!)desenso said:I can't speak for the larger version, but I just bought the medium-sized Timbuk2 Commute (http://www.timbuk2.com/tb2/retail/catalog.htm?categoryId=7)
It's fantastic! Nice, padded laptop case. Solid material. Comfortable fit (although a pad for the shoulder strap is an additional $10.. ridiculous).
I believe they have a larger version for the 17" powerbook - not sure how the PowerBook and MacBook Pro differ on size, but if they're the same, and if the larger version is comparable to what I bought, I highly recommend it.
On your Brenthaven Bag, what type was it? Was it the back pack? If so how is the size? I need a bag for carrying my MBP and also my books for class... WHat are your thoughts?rlove06 said:From my point of view if you bought a $3000 laptop, it's worth (if you can afford it) to buy a $200 case to protect it. An example, about a year ago, my friend and I both had 17" PB's. I bought the Brenthaven bag and he bought a bag from office depot for $50. We were traveling together and on the trip, both of our bags took similiar dives . Mine was protected and didn't get hurt. His case got dented on the corner where the superdrive was and the gray plastic liner was then bent and in a U shape blocking his superdrive's slot. That isn't a perfect example, but it's all I got. Good luck.
