I posted a little while ago asking which bag people thought would be better for college, the Brain Bag or the Smart Alec. I had decided on a Smart Alec and was just waiting for it to be back in stock in black/iberian or for for the new dyneema color to be released. Unfortunately, the waiting has given me time to continue thinking about the Brain Bag vs. the Smart Alec. And then I came across this thread: http://www.tombihn.com/forums/questi...llege-bag.html in which the vote is unanimous for the Brain Bag as a college bag. There's the question of whether the Smart Alec will feel too cramped (especially with a computer in a brain cell) Vs. the question of whether the Brain Bag would just look and feel tremendous. The Smart Alec is probably big enough, but maybe its better to go with the Brain Bag which will absolutely no question always be big enough for me. So, if you don't mind me asking again, which bag do you think will be better for me on a college campus? I do plan to carry my laptop around (13" macbook), but not always. I know I'm probably over-thinking this, but it's my nature (it doesn't help that it's summer and I have waaaaay too much free time on my hands ).
