    If you aren't very careful with how you knock around or set your bag down with your MacBook Air in it, I would not recommend the Ristretto. It is a very nice looking bag like all things Bihn, but it...

    I took the new aluminum MacBook for a spin and I prefer my white Santa Rosa MB to be honest. The glossy screen I've come to accept and even appreciate after having lived with my 2.2GHz MB for awhile....

    Our daughter takes a Ruck's Sac to school every day and loves it so much more than the LL Bean backpack we'd originally gotten her. I bought her the Ruck's Sac after being blown away by my own Bihn...

    Don't get me wrong -- I looove my PB12. Best form factor of any laptop I've ever had. But my MacBook just flat runs circles around it, weighs less, runs longer on a charge, speeds through even HD...

    I've found that the new Atom-based netbooks like yours actually run faster with Leopard than XP or Vista -- you might be surprised at how powerful your Acer really is when it's running OSX instead of...

    As a fellow PB12 owner, let me assure you that the MSI Wind and its Intel Atom processor run circles around the G4 laptop. In fact, I'm selling my PB12 and replacing it with a Wind, or possibly...

    You can install OSX Leopard on your Acer Aspire One if you don't mind a bit of medium-geek hacking. Actually these days it's pretty easy to get OSX on pretty much any Intel/AMD PC made in the last...

    I have both bags, and for all that you want to carry, you're going to need the Empire Builder.

    Wow, a 7400RPM drive? That's 200RPM faster than any of the 7200RPM drives I've got in our newer Macs. I'm jealous. Who do you know on the inside?

    I have the same PB12/1.33GHz/1.25GB, with a 100GB 5400RPM Seagate drive I installed about 2 yrs ago. I put Leopard on this PB and it runs fine. Leopard didn't hurt performance at all. I would say...

    Um, you can't fit a Brain Cell inside an InCase hardshell -- both products are designed to form-fit snugly around a Macbook. It's either/or, not and.

    I don't think you're going to be able to improve on the Macbook protection of the Ristretto by adding anything to the mix. The Macbook fits tightly and securely in the sleeve, with little room for...
