    im thinking of getting a macbook for college and was wondering if a macbook can handle being tossed around in a backpack? like is it rough enough for a college student?

    um, well, just be careful . the macbook i would think would handle rough situations as far as cosmetic more than a Macbook Pro due to the plastic, but i wouldn't count on it holding up very well if you tossed it up in the air, landing it 7 feet away, if you get what i'm saying.

    I've got a PowerBook that I carry to class in a backpack every day. It has held up just fine, and I don't see why the MacBook would be any different.

    just curious why, even if it was 'rough enough', you wouldn't treat something that cost $1000 with a little extra care...

    I've been tossing my Macbook into my bag for over a year now and it works great. Just be sure to get some sort of sleeve so that it doesn't rattle around inside your bag.

    Yep it sure will. I carry my Macbook to class about every other day and it still works great. I have a Case Logic sleeve that mine fits in perfectly that I use.

    Get a snap on Spec Case, and it should be fine

    Also, a good Backpack, like the swiss army ones on apple's site, work great!
