Thread: carrying case for 15" powerbook
02-17-2005, 09:41 PM #1lorddraco98Guestcarrying case for 15" powerbook
I'm looking for suggestions on carrying options for a new 15" powerbook that I'll be getting soon. I'd like a messenger bag or something similar (not a backpack) and then whatever else you guys would reccomend.
we use the cheap targus laptop bags at work to hold the iBooks in and I really don't like them.

This is like the upteenth time I've said this, but I still say:
Don't get a laptop bag/case. It's asking to have your PowerBook stolen. It may not be so important in a professional work environment, but when I take it to do work (fixing people's PCs) downtown, a big Samsonite laptop bag just screams "mug me, please."
I put my PowerBook in a pillowcase, (I'm thinking of getting a Marware Sleeve) then in a backpack - and everyone assumes that I just have worthless term papers and failed tests in there.

while your pillowcase in-a-backpack idea might help save you from a mugging, its sure not doing anything to prolong the life if your mac.

I use a $40 Swiss Army CS2 sleeve to protect my laptops, not a $300 case-don't be so extreme. Encouraging people to protect a $2000 investment in a pillowcase is simply absurd.

I use a Timbuktu messenger bag for mine. Nobody has a clue that it's a laptop bag, and it does a great job carrying all of my books and various laptop peripherals. While the pillow case idea is cute, it's completely out of the question for my 15" Powerbook. Mine has taken a fall inside the bag, and the padded bag saved its life. It would have been dead had it been in a backpack.Roger Michaels

i bought a laptop backback from spire. I think their site is http://www.spireusa.com their products are a little pricy (i paid 160 for my pack), but the protection is 2nd to none. definately give them a look.
