    Question about the Brain Bag

    In your experience with the Brain Bag, just how much protection the Brain Bag does it offer for a laptop? I've seen that other bags have "shock protection" or "shock impact" and it seems like a useful feature to have for a case. There's nothing mentioned about shock protection for the Brain Bag, so I'm just wondering how well it protects a laptop and how necessary the shock protection feature is. Furthermore, I need to be able to store a power adapter, mouse, ethernet cable w/ the bag. Will it be able to accomodate it?

    Thanks for any help.

    The Brain Bag, which is a backpack, does not offer any protection for your laptop by itself. To carry a laptop inside the Brain Bag, you'll need to use the Brain Cell - maybe a little confusing, I know!

    The Brain Cell is one of the few laptop cases that provides hard-shell protection - you won't find more serious "shock" protection in any other case except for steel cases. The Brain Cell has a hard, corrugated plastic insert to protect the laptop against drops, falls, and other objects, soft foam padding to protect against scrapes and scratches, and a suspension system so your laptop doesn't rest directly on the bottom of the bag.
