    The Ristretto looks really nice, but I'm disappointed to hear that the padded compartment won't fit a Thinkpad X61 (my laptop) according to the gottabemobile reviewer. The overall dimensions for the bag created false hope for me... :-(

    Hopefully, other sizes will come sooner rather than later.

One of the things I love about it is the number of plastic O-rings with whcih you can clip your keys and the little bags for quick access. GREAT JOB, TOM!
    The Ristretto is also Tom's current bag of choice: it fits his brand-new 13" MacBook quite well.

    We're glad to hear that the Ristretto is working well for you!

    I'm confused how the X61 cannot fit since it has smaller dimensions than the 13" macbook and it is listed as fitting. I was planning on ordering one for my 700m, but am now wondering whether or not it would fit. I assumed since the 700m is smaller than the 13" macbook that it would fit fine.

    Cheers,

    I would have appreciated some full-bag pictures in the other color options as well as opposed to the tiny ones.

    What the h**l .. who cares about colors anyway :-)

    I just ordered a bunch of stuff and I will be happily awaiting my TB shipment. Although I might shed a tear whilst unpacking since I will know, that $55 is shipment cost alone. Guess I'll just have to pop over to the US more often :-)

    Cheers,

    Just received my Ristretto in plum and wasabi yesterday - great bag! I like that my MBA fits with the Incase neoprene sleeve I have for it as well as without it. (Yeah, I know it doesn't need the extra protection, but I'm still in ”precious“ mode with the MBA.)

    This is one of those designs that is just right for me. I'm only sorry that I held off ordering it til after a workshop I went to a couple of weeks ago. It would have been perfect. At least I have it now for all future events.
