    Question What bag is everyone using?
    I have a 12" Powerbook G4.

    I'm considering a breifcase style bag for my Powerbook.
    I'm wanting to use it for work and other miscellaneous adventures around Washington, D.C.

    I'm looking at the Tom Bihn Empire Builder:
    http://www.tombihn.com/page/001/PROD/_all/TB0730

    I'm on the verge of getting it as i have not found anything that I like better.

    I already own the Buzz:
    http://www.tombihn.com/page/001/PROD/300/TB0151

    Which works great for the 12" and has been a great bag.

    I'm looking for something that looks professional without being super dull
    and just like everyone else's bag.

    I'm wondering what everyone uses for their Apple portable.
    I have looked at a lot of brands for bags and such, but I'm wondering
    what the actual Apple users are using to tote their laptop around.

    I've got this excelent Billabong backpack. Its got a laptop section in the back and this section does not go to the botom of the bag it stops about 3 inches up so if you drop th bag on the ground hard putting it down the laptop cannot hit the ground. Its amazing. Loads of storage for cables disc etc. And the best thing. It doesn't look like one of the laptop bags that says " hi i'm carrying a laptop, please mug me". It was only 60 so not a rip off. Checkout some of the big surfstores that sell lots of accesories.

    I've got a timbuk2 messenger bag for my powerbook 15 inch. It has a special storage space that hugs the computer, and the outside is water resistant or water proof. I just know that I've walked in the rain with it and NOTHING got wet. It works great for me.

    Ive got two Hedgren hand luggage bags for flying, Ive had them a few years and they have made a few flights some in the hold and also used them day to day and they still look brand new.
    They are definetly a quality bag.

    I've always liked this one . I ride a lot (well I did, stupid car hitting me), and having a regular bag flopping around in the wind gets distracting. This seems like it would be a good solution to that, plus it looks like it would offer a lot of protection. Although, the looks might be too much for some.

    Targus Laptop Backpack. Has a padded section for laptop and then like 10 other sections for books, etc. I keep my books, laptop, mouse, ipod/charger/usb cable, pens, 60 gb portable hdd, firewire, laptop charger, phone charger all in this one bag. It's very big and utilizes space well as even when full of these things looks like a normal bag. Sometimes I even carry my Wacom Intuos3 in it with all this stuff.

    When I go on photo shoots I have a Crumpler Backpack that keeps both my 35mm SLR and 20D with all 5 of my lenses, plus filters, cable release, flash, extra memory cards and battery, and card reader. I can attach my tripod or monopod to it. Then it has a laptop compartment that can be pulled out from the bag and carried individually or within the bag. Very nice!!!

    Anything that doesn't look like a computer bag because computer bags say "Goodies inside, Steal Me" and are easy pickings to all the thieves out there.

    i have a big pimpin victorinox backpack style bag. it has everything you could think of.

    and it doesn't really look like a computer bag. but then again, it's pretty ****ing sweet, so somebody would probably just steal the whole thing.
