    I am currently waiting on my order for the neoprene plus sleeve for my 15" macbook pro, it's not arriving until the 30th of this month. I have school tonight and before the 30th. I don't have a backpack where there's a slot for my macbook pro. I'm not even sure if the class I have tonight will need to take notes or not and I want to take it with me in case of note taking. What can I do? I do have a backpack just without the part for laptop. How can I secure my laptop in that backpack? Or should I carry it to class with me? Someone let me know an alternative way before class starts which is in 6 hours lol. It would really help me out. This is my first mac and I don't want 1K+ to get hurt or scratched.

    Leave it at home until you get the sleeve for the backpack.

    You can improve your handwriting in the meantime.

    I wrapped mine in a T-shirt for the first couple weeks before I got a sleeve. I also have a backpack with a space for it and it worked fine.

    You bought it to use, so use it. If you're careful your computer will be fine.

    I will explain. It's a complicated and tedious process. In the times before such devices as the "iPad" and "iPhone," mankind was forced to fashion characters in other ways. For example, if you wanted to talk to your girlfriend, what you would have to do is use a tall, skinny piece of wood to make designs on a piece of writing material, commonly referred to as "paper." You would then "mail" this "paper" using the "pony express" or by some other means. This process could take weeks or even months. In the early 21st century this process was deemed obsolete.

    I hope this clarifies things.

    Other have suggested good padding but remember the sleeve tend to be crap compared to a pad compartment in a dedicated backpack. I would say go out and get a backpack that has a pocket for laptops built into it.

    Is this a serious question? Carry it in a backpack or any other bag -- big deal. You bought it to use it, right?

    I have a serious question.

    I'm still waiting on my Shinza case. How long does it take to ship it? It's been 10 days.

    It wasn't even CTO case.
