I like the monolith, but like lots of other bags, it's not the best dimensions for my machine.
My laptop is a Gateway 4530GZ/M320XL.
Dimensions are 12.9 x 10.6 x 1.1.
The Size 2 monolith seems way too big at 14.1 x 11.5 x 2.25. Seems like I'd be carrying around a lot of extra bulk that isn't necessary.
However, the size 4 monolith seems like it just about makes it, at 13.7 x 10 x 1.25.
The question is, can I squeeze in my 10.6" width laptop into the 10" width monolith? If so, would I loose any of the padding advantages? I'd really like a bag that "just fits" so as not to take up a lot of room in my small backpack.
Anyone is welcome to let me know what they think!
