    Hi everybody,
    I ordered my first MAC ever (see sig below). It won't be here till 3/21:( but in the meantime I wanted to order a bag for it while I wait.

    I can't decide whether to go with an STM Convertible:

    or a MacCase Jacket:

    I plan to use and keep the MBP mostly at home but for the times I need to take it out, I want to be able to transport it in a sleek bag that's very portable and not too bulky. It must be professional looking as well so I can take it to work.
    I'll only need the bag to have extra space for some basic necessities such as the power cord, mouse, some DVDs/CDs, pens, and a notebook, etc.

    I'd appreciate it if anyone can provide some pros and cons on these bags.

    These are the only 2 bags I was able to narrow my search down to in terms of good price point and meeting my requirements but I'll take a look at any other bags (no backpacks) you guys think I should also consider.

    Thanks,
    Summer2000

    I like the first one, it looks more low profile. Have you checked out the incase bags at the Apple store, I have one and I love it, real simple, nice fur interior.

    Hi wgilles,
    Thanks for replying. I checked out that Incase bag. I don't like the fact that you can only carry it on the left shoulder (I read that from a user review) and it's a bit pricey as well for what it offers.

    So far I'm leaning more towards the STM unless anyone else has something better in mind. I'd like to make a decision by the end of the week if possible.

    Thanks,
    Summer2000

    The second one looks more Mac-friendly as well as just better quality in general. The black one is more low profile, it's true - but the silver one looks like it'd be a better investment. And it's sleek :cool:
