Alright, well, I know there have been a gazillion posts about bags, and backpacks, and sleeves and all that jazz from 64 different companies. I have searched the forums a few times, but still have such difficulty making a decision since it's sometimes hard to visualize when you can't see a bag up close and personal. Anyway, initially I wanted a Crumpler considerable embarrassment, but now I am leaning towards a timbuk2 bag. I was leaning towards the commute, but I really like how you can customize your own messenger bag. The unfortunate part about that, is they are not laptop bags. I have a neoprene sleeve for my 12 inch iBook, but my question is, for those of you who have experience with this, would that be enough protection in the classic messenger bag? Or would the commute be better, obviously adding more support? Thanks for any advice and sorry if this is redundant!
