    Question about the Ristretto

    Seriously considering getting a Ristretto to lug around my iPad2 with me almost everywhere I go now.

    Curious as to know the difference in size between the 3 types (13", 11", iPad).

    Does anyone have photos of the size comparison between the 3 side by side? I was thinking maybe the iPad specific one but I was thinking maybe to get a Macbook Air in the future and may future proof my purchase by getting one of the Macbook Air specific ones. Furthermore, how much 'jiggle' is in there if I use the iPad2 in the 11" and 13" specific Ristrettos?

    Also wondering how 'big' the bags are, I'm about 1.69m, around 5'6", medium build, and wondering how the size of the Ristretto would look on someone my height.

    Does this help?



    Left to right: Ristretto for iPad, Ristretto for 11" MacBook Air, Ristretto for 13" MacBook/MacBook Air

    The Ristretto for iPad and Ristretto for 11" MacBook Air look to be almost the same size because they almost are.

    (No 5'6" models were handy today.)

    I found this photo of a Ristretto and love the colour. I'm wondering if it's the conifer colour; it doesn't quite match the one on the TB order page. Anyone able to confirm the colour. Thanks so much for your help. Will.

    Ok, thanks. The steel looked a bit greyer to me (there's a pic for the Ristretto/Mac 11 Ristretto for 11" MacBook Air: TOM BIHN). Might just be a difference in the lighting.

    Thanks Darcy and Daisy for the replies and photos. These were a great help.

    Looks like it's gonna be the 11" MBA Ristretto for me.
