I am planning on getting a iBook in a few weeks and was looking for a notebook case. When I commute to school, I have my back pack for books, pencils, and notebooks. I am looking for just a bag that will hold my iBook, charger, some CDs, and a network cable.

Does anybody have this Samsonite L35 bag? How does it fit the 12" and some accessories?

Hmmm... sounds a bit big for the 12"

12" iBook G4 = 11.2" * 9.1" * 1.3"
Samsonite L35 = 14.5" * 11" * 2"

The problem is I read this review about the Samsonite designed for 12", the L25

Great bag, but don't get it for a 12
The bag is great quality as you would expect from Samsonite, But if you have a 12" G4 iBook it won't fit. Odly enough the 12" PowerBook G4 fits perfectly. It seems Apple made the iBook a little bit wider, just enough to render this bag useless if you own one.

So I figured I would get the next bigger one.
