Didn't see anything in the other threads that met my requirements, so here goes. I need a moderately priced (under $50) backpack or possibly nice messenger bag that fits a 13" MacBook. My preference would be for one of those single strap backpacks, because I want it to fit nicely against my back (I don't have the best back in the world, so a snug bag will be helpful). It doesn't absolutely have to have a laptop slot, although I prefer that extra protection. I do have a soft sleeve I already keep it in, doesn't protect it from impact or pressure, just scratching and the like. Oh yeah, and the price range is because I really do have only about that amount of money to spend on it (birthday cash). jW P.S. Yes, I like parentheses (they really help get the point across).
