    My GF will be getting the more expensive white one today and i was just wondering what bags/cases you guys reccomend.

    briefcase style only though, not the backpack kind

    I really wouldn't know. I use the one given to me by Digidesign. It's much smaller than the usual laptop bag, and fits my 15" PB perfect. I doesn't allow me to carry alot of stuff, but I can keep my thumb drive, power adapter, a run of cat6, and a notepad easily

    I purchased a Waterfield sleeve case for my MacBook Pro. They make a sleeve case for the 13" MacBook now too. They fit your computer like a glove, and have a decent amount of padding. You can also order a "piggyback" bag to carry your ipod, power adapter, remote control, etc with it. I chose that case because I travel frequently and have limited storage space inside my travel bag. I'm really happy with it :)

    Brenthaven. Best bag I have ever owned. The bag is made specifically for the Apple laptops. The insides have these arced pads inside that suspend the laptop. There are more hidden pockets then a 007 suit, and the material never shows wear. The handles are the best design yet for any carrying device IMO. Luggage should be designed like this is.

    That would be "you're," and because I prefer an option that has proven positive to me, I'm sackriding? :hsugh: Tell you what, I'll stick with what works, and you can try and sway someone else. Wait, that would make you a sackrider if you follow your own lead.
