Everybody has different tastes in how to travel with their laptops. What did you choose for your Macbook and why? This is what I use for short drives to clients - It is minimal yet has enough room for my Macbook Pro 15" plus, external drives, slim blue ray reader, and some tools. What I trade in minimal padding is that I can use the Macbook inside of the case as it opens attache case style. This is the Thule Gauntlet 15 (somewhat made for the Macbook Pro 15" with a snug fit). It has a minimalist industrial look which works well if you don't want to attract attention or have to meet with clients that expect a 'serious' meeting. I'll just say it is not the best case out there but does reasonably well. I hope others here join in and impress us all with either case flare or functionality.
