    Actually, I've never owned a vertical bag before, so I'm not sure how I would like it, but buying both would be an interesting option - but potentially dangerous with the wife! I was wondering if...

    Cadet vs Ristretto for MBA 13 - which one?

    I've recently acquired a Macbook Air 13 which I love. It's light, fast and does everything I need it to. Especially coming from a MBP 15. But now I have a bit of a dilemma. I currently use a SuperEgo...

    Okay, after posting my last comment, it bugged me to the point where I emptied out my SuperEgo and tried to repack it as I had claimed and took notes.

    I also had considered the CPF as an everyday bag before settling on the SuperEgo. I can see how some may consider the CPF laptop case difficult to access because of having to unbuckle the top flap in...

    Thanks for the clarification Darcy. As an Apple fanboy, I'm not used to thinking about thicker/bulkier PC laptops. I guess I got spoiled by my MBP!
