    I should probably add that my purse is totally different, I think I could kill someone with that thing. I always carry my ipod touch, charging cable (you never know!) and a thing to play it over the radio. Plus my phone, USB and lots of other stuff.

    wow some of you must have HUGE bags to carry all that stuff!

    This is what I carry to school every day in my apple messenger bag (got it from the campus at cupertino. doesn't have a laptop sleeve but whatever):

    - 15" MBP
    - comp charger
    - remote (doesn't ever work during presentations though! murphy's law I guess)
    - couple pilot precise v5 pens (I'm very picky when it comes to pens)
    - mechanical pencils
    - TI-89 titanium
    - some eyeliner, chapstick, and sometimes cover-up
    - any schoolbooks I need
    - black iPhone with earbuds
    - sometimes my wallet (usually only when I go out with friends after school. otherwise, I don't bring money because people at my school beg off everyone all day for money to buy food. I don't like lying but I don't wanna give money to them either).
    - pocketknife (squirt p4). not allowed to have it in school though so rarely take it out
    - flash drive
    - sometimes dvi adapters because lots of students have macs but school doesn't have adapters for the projectors we use in presentations, so I supply em

    yea that's basically all I can fit in my bag. it's pretty small but I pack it tight
