    I'm finally pulling the trigger tomorrow and ordering a 15-inch, 1.25 GHz Powerbook with 512 MB RAM, 80 gig HD, and Airport Extreme. I am going to be switching from a 5-year old Compaq Presario, 500 MHz Pentium 3 with 184 MB RAM and a 6 gig HD.

    First, someone please tell me that my purchased is justified, and I am not going to feel guilty for spending $2000+ dollars on this laptop. I have been looking forward to this switch for a LONG time, and now that I finally have the funds to do so, I don't want to be let down.

    Secondly, I'm going to need a sweet new backpack to carry my prized Powerbook around in. :D Not a bag, not a sleeve, but a backpack. It's for graduate school so I wanna have plenty of room to lug my Powerbook around as well as other school supply type things.

    Can anyone recommend a cool backpack and possibly assuade my fears by telling me that the 15-inch Powerbook rocks?

    You won't feel let down, but just realize that a better, faster computer will probably come out in three months or so, always happened. Just buy it, and be happy! It's an awesome computer.

    I love this backpack. It has a padded laptop slot in the back, and holds EVERYTHING. I've put in several books, scripts, a change of clothes, water bottles, iPod with accessories, school supplies, and everything. You name it and I've put it in this bag. I carry a lot of stuff around and I love this bag.

    Good luck!

    My backpack totally rocks, its made by belkin and costs £29.99 in the UK.

    Belkin Rucksack

    Fits a 12' ibook perfectly... to be 100% sure though take your laptop to the store with you, just to ensure a snug fit.
