    I'm am extremely paranoid about dropping my new MBP and want to get the most protective case and/or backpack on the market.

    Ideally, I'd get a case so protective that I could drop it (w/ my mbp inside of course) on the concrete pretty hard w/o risking serious damage.

    Form is also a concern, not only function. I like the MacTruck (http://www.radtech.us/Products/MacTruck.aspx#) but it is out of my price range unless it is really that durable. Also the Viper Mz (http://www.booqbags.com/s.nl/it.A/id.74/.f?leadsource=BAGFINDERCAMP) looks good too but I just don't know how durable it is.

    What are your opinions?

    What you want is this, by a German company called iStuff. Not yet available in the US, but should be soon . . . . You can see it in action here. (Advance the video to 2:20 to see the part about the laptop shell.) Made just for Macs, by the way.

    My second choice for a bomb-proof case would be one of these, by Higher Ground, designed to withstand daily use by school children. They may not be the most elegant things in the world, but they're kid-proof (and not outrageously expensive) - and have been reported to withstand just the kind of impact you describe!

    You can also check out this thread, which is just one of many addressing the same question.
