I have a compact (11" x 7.5" x 1") laptop, which would seem to call for a size 5 Brain Cell(11.3" x 9.3" x 1.4" inside). Will that 1.8" of unused vertical space compromise the protection afforded my laptop? Can I safely lay a spare battery in that space?
How does that Brain Cell (11.9 x 11.6 x 2.5, outside), fit into the 18.25 x 12.75 x 7 dimensions of the Empire Builder? Is it centered horizontally, leaving about three inches on each side? Or can it be pushed fore or aft, yielding a more useful 6" of space at one end, where a book might stand?
