    Brain Cell #1 - Dimension to thin

    Just got a new 17" G4 Powerbook and a new Brain Cell, size 1. I would suggest thinking about making it 1/8" thicker. With my old 14" iBook I was able to slip a few file folders in with the laptop with relative ease. The new one is rather snug, making it a force.

    Or perhaps, my old one was compressed over time and thereby creating a bit of room.

    Just a thought.

    Seth,

    Does it work without the file folders? The Brain Cell isn't designed to have extra stuff besides the laptop put inside - we didn't want to leave any extra room. The more snug the fit, the better protected your laptop is.

    Darcy,

    Yeh, it's fine without some papers - quite a good fit. There's always the temptation to throw a few folders in there to avoid carrying more!
