    Check out www.booqbags.com

    I bought the Vyper sleeve for my 13" and love it. I don't even bother using my bag most of the time.

    so that would be the best bet? i don't want to have to worry if i have a sleeve and it in a well padded area in a backpack. i won't be throwing it around but just with normal wear. sitting it down and picking it back up. i just wanna go the extra mile and make sure it is well protected....we all know we didn't get our mbp cheap

    ----------


    i couldn't find any reviews on this brand so i don't think i want.

    Another vote for Booq. Great quality stuff.

    I haven't seen the Taipan in person, just the Vyper...which I have. I think the Taipan is just neoprene (think wetsuit), whereas the Vyper is a semi-hard fiber case. It's actually hard enough I'm using it as a lapdesk while sitting on the couch with my wife and kid.
    The interior is fairly thickly padded. There is also a canvas bead that goes around the rim and protects the computer from the zippers.


    And I think I got it from Amazon.

    I have one criticism;

    I really wish it had a canvas loop, or D-ring. Something I could attach a lanyard or carry strap to. Sometimes I do need hands-free when walking around and juggling my coffee or whatever.

    EDIT: And yes, just the std black, no GTR.

    Sure, I think it would be good to share. I was tempted by the GTR, but chickened out. I use my laptop in a corporate environment and like to blend in, not stick out. Black goes with everything. ;-)

    Vyper M3 Case for my 15" MBP. Fits snug and been great. Had it for 2 months now. Worth the money imo
