    Bag For College Student??
    Hey Everyone,

    Im going off to college soon and i've been looking for a good bag to carry my 13" macbook in addition to some books, my ipod, etc. While i was searching, i found the Incase Nylon Backpack http://store.apple.com/us/product/TN...4&s=topSellers

    if anyone has this bag and have any reviews or comments on it (good or bad) or know of any other bag that would be usable for my college life, any help would be great. Thanks!

    I have the Incase Nylon Backpack (not the slim one) and I must say it is AMAZING. The notebook compartment is very well protected and both the main and secondary big pockets are full of mesh pockets to keep all of your gadgets AND their accessories neat and organized. Thick padding on the shoulder and hip straps is really nice to. And it is very durable. I think it would be a great bag for your macbook AND your stuff.

    I like the WaterField bags and cases. They are somewhat expensive, but extremely durable and extremely well made. Check it out.. their website is www.sfbags.com

    The fact of the matter is that pretty much any backpack you buy nowadays has a notebook compartment. Just find one that works for you and that will take good care of your notebook and you will be fine.

    Eh, I just bought a neoprene sleeve that was made for the MacBook, and I carry that around in a regular backpack that has a slot for a Notebook computer.

    I think that you will find that to be your best option, as it doesn't completely scream "I have a laptop in me, so please steal me."

    Hello! I had that case for awhile. I wasn't a fan. If I remember correctly, I just found it to be a pain in the back. I switched back to the one I have been using for the past 3 years : http://www.ebags.com/ebags/downloade...?modelid=15025

    It's awesome and I've never had a single problem with it. It works fine with 13-15", so macbooks/Pros work fine. I'm not sure about the 17". I'm a college student as well and having a lightweight backpack really helps. My fiancee had a swiss army laptop backpack that just about made her fall backwards every step she took. Not fun! Good luck!

    Edit...sorry guys, I didn't realize I cursed...I don't think I did really. I used a very non-curse word...but you live and learn I guess.
