While electronics are getting smaller and smaller, A4/letter size paper is still pretty much the standard for documents.
Many want a Junior size notebook or notepad, an agenda, a sketch book or the Field Journal Notebook (to replace all 3 in one convenient package)
And then, we all want to bring our miscellany.
Furthermore, while an iPad is very much capable of standing in for a laptop, sometimes one needs the power and the upgradability of a Mac Book Pro, hence the Ristretto for the 13" MacBook Pro .
Is it ok to carry smaller electronic devices into a Cache designed for bigger ones?
Question was prompted by the Ristretto for the 13" MacBook Pro in Aubergine/Dyneema Steel flaunting its good looks, I saw purple, I followed the link...
If the question is would a larger cache still provide protection, then yes: I'm sure it would. I think the issue would be wasted space. I guess you could put the iPad in the cache and then also a relatively thin book or papers or something. Personally, I'd be disinclined to buy a 13" Ristretto unless I had a 13" machine to put in it, but I have no doubts you could make it work with an iPad.
