    Typical topic, I know, but I searched the forum and couldn't find what I was looking for.

    I need a bag for my 12" PB G4. Not a sleeve. I've already got a sleeve. A bag. I'll be taking it to school, and carrying it around town with me, so it has to be durable, but doesn't have to be "trek" quality.

    It also should have enough space to hold (if necessary):

    PowerBook
    iPod
    Paper/Files
    Other assorted small items (mouse, adapters, tickets, etc.)

    Anyone have suggestions?

    Thanks,
    NickD

    That looks very interesting, but I can't find any pictures of the interior. Could you direct me to some if you know where to find them?

    Thanks,

    I'll take a picture and post it tomorrow. My bag's at school. It's a slightly older model (grey instead of charcoal) but I imagine they're similar inside.

    Which Crumpler would you particularly recommend?

    inside the 15" incase bag

    Hmm, I guess they're different. I just bought an incase bag for my new 15" mbp and it's very different from the old 12" one I have. It's got this soft faux fur inside that just feels divine and more little pockets to store random stuff.

    I like my ground bag; it's the diabase one. Nobody at my school has it; I'm a 2L in law school. Plus, i've received numerous compliments...there was an aritcle in Men's Health Magazine about it about a year ago...it works really well w/ my 12".

    I have the Hee-Goer and I love it. I can get 2-3 text books in it, as well as all of my PB essentials. It's also got great style, which is why I chose it in the first place.

    Second that on the ground Diabase

    I will totally backup that the Diabase from ground rocks! http://www.groundwear.com/products.php?style=62

    They have one called the Seventeen that I use for my 17" but my daily traveling is with my 12" and I use the Diabase. Cool thing is that not everyone has one. I'll see them from time to time in airports but not that frequently. Kind makes me feel good that I am not just guy with the same old bag. I bought mine from http://www.powderfin.com but got my Seventeen from http://www.ebags.com

    I'm getting a AppleSac soon and will invest in a Tumi bag in the future

    I say get a crumpler. You don't see many people with them yet, and they are by far the stylish laptop bags out there ... not to mention you can fit loads in them and they are extremely well padded to protect your lap top.

    I want a crumpler, but they're so expensive $160 vs the $100 cost of the Timbuk2 Commute (which I paid $69) for.

    They are definitely stylish though.
