I have done some searches, but I have a question about this bag. I read all the rave reviews about the Ogio Metro and bought one. It arrived today. I really like it, but I noticed that while the front and back of the laptop compartment are well padded, the sides are not at all. All they are are nylon sides. I am concerned about putting my Macbook in there and it taking a direct hit on the side of the bag. Has anyone else noticed this and if so, how has your experience been with using a MB or MBP in the Ogio Metro? I have been looking at the incase hardcase for my Macbook which would make me feel a lot more comfortable putting it in there. My old Ogio Prodigy has a laptop slot inside that is padded on back, bottom, front and sides, but it is 4 years old and the other compartments are lacking space and the strap covers are falling off. The Prodigy also has much more padded straps than any laptop backpack I have found so far.
