Can anyone with both a Ristretto and a LCB comment on this: my in-air personal items these days is my Large Cafe Bag, usually with a 13" MacBook Air in a Cache.
I'm thinking of getting the new Ristretto, which would be perfect while in the air. However, at my destination(s) I use the Cafe Bag for daily carry, leaving the Air wherever I'm staying.
My question: does the Ristretto without a computer make sense as an everyday carry bag?
The obvious disadvantage would seem to be that for computerless carry a certain amount of space is taken up by the built-in computer padding. On the other hand, I imagine that the padding adds more definition to the bag, preventing it from collapsing into a formless heap.
Any insight would be much appreciated and gratefully received. Many thanks!
