    Anyone have any recommendations? i read about an incase bag, but some people complained that it was a loose fit. Thanks!

    got an incase sleeve, no problems here. i did remove the label from within though as precaution after reading up on it.

    i second that. the brain cell slips into a knapsack vertically, or can be used by itself with a shoulder strap. amazing protection, and best of both worlds. moreover, their ship times/customer service are second to none.

    hey,

    if you want a tight fit that delivers great protection there is nothing like these:

    It fits perfectly + delivers far higher impact protection than any of the sleeves (which give you almost no protection whatsoever).
    This is great to put into any backpack thus transforming it into a great laptop bag :)

    The thing to remember is that when it comes to portable laptop protection, there's two main categories. First you have the sleeves. These are built to protect your laptop against scratches and other small cosmetic damaging. These do not protect against impact or other forces that could dent or seriously damage your laptop; do NOT use a sleeve alone in a backpack full of hardback books that you sling around all day, you will eventually damage your laptop. The other type is cases. These are obviously bulkier than sleeves, but provide much improved protection. In addition to protecting against cosmetic damage, they will also protect against those stronger impact forces that will seriously harm your laptop (to a degree). Be careful when you decide which to choose.

    I have the Marware one on Apple's online store, and I love it. I really like the little "pouch" on the front too. It holds my Apple remote and iPod nano. :)

    I THIRD this recommendation for a Tom Binh braincell case. I love mine and can always be assured my SR MBP is safe in its sleeve.

    I just want to say stay away from incase! My sleeve is a rubbish fit and I generally don't like it.

    I bought a sleeve from Waterfield Designs @ sfbags.com with my 12" powerbook four years ago and it still looks brand new. Their sleeves are incredible and you can design it how you want (flap, sack to hold other stuff, strap, vertical or horizontal, etc.) definitely check them out before making a purchase.

    Couldn't have said it any better! I'm also in the market for a case. Since I may store it in my backpack at times I was leaning toward one that was a little thicker than a sleeve and with a handle or arm strap. One from Booq, Tom Bihn, or Brenthaven would do the trick. They all look like quality choices to me.

    Edit: After looking at the cases side by side I've decided to go with the Brenthaven one. It looks much more appealing than the Tom Bihn (Looks like a pizza delivery bag!) and the Booq Viper bag has no handles.
