Even though the Apple Store is down right now, we know that you all still have MacBooks on your brains. That being said, you'll probably still want to get a great laptop sleeve or bag to house your new baby. I usually stick my laptop in my Oakley Kitchen Sink bag. Since it's big enough for even 17" laptops, it's never been an issue. But after getting my laptop all scratched up thanks to something metallic that was in there as well, I understand that using a sleeve is the best way to go. Most manufacturers will include one with their laptops, but do you really want to stick with the one you got for free?
You'll be happy to know that Built NY now offers 17-inch sleeves, which are perfect for that new MacBook Pro. The Cargo Laptop Sleeve would work really well for a laptop that size. Most of these bags are made out of neoprene, which is more commonly known as the super strong wetsuit material.
The Laptop Portfolio is a real nifty bag for people who want to lug their laptop around in something different than a case or a backpack. Built NY has improved upon the original by offering a smaller sized bag perfect for that new netbook and adding more pockets. If there's one thing that I agree with it's pockets. You never have enough of those. A lot of pockets are really something good to have on a bag.
