Thanks for the update. I guess it's now time to order!! This weekend for sure!
The Plum/Wasabi Ristretto looks awesome. I know future sizes are in the planning stages, but I have to ask: Would a version for a 17" MBP/PB be practical? It's basically exactly the bag I was looking for when I wound up buying my Super Ego (Which, don't get me wrong, I love, but it's sort of huge for a personal item at the airport), but I can't tell if the increased size necessary for a much bigger laptop would make the vertical style more impractical.
