I have just returned to work after a lay off of close to a year. My new job offers a lot of flexibility including the opportunity to telecommute. To do this, I had to purchase a PC as office connections/software did not work well with Mac.
Well, needless to say, the budget is a bit tight right now and so I was not able to purchase a Tom Bihn bag for the new PC. I tried my Ego but it was a tight fit (PC is 15.2 - 16 in) I ended up with something called a Golla bag and to be honest, it will do for now but it seriously lacks the quality and craftsmanship of a Bihn bag. I knew we were spoiled with Tom's high standards and it seems other companies have no standards. The Golla bag is thin nylon, a barely padded computer section but better than nothing, seams are not reinforced -- the list goes on -- I don't imagine it be long for this world!
In the mean time, saving for that new Bihn bag!!!!!! Oh the excitement is building!
