Hi. I've also been trying to find a laptop bag for my brother's 12 inch Mac notebook. I've been looking for a long time! Either bags aren't sturdy enough, or else they have not got enough style. Or they have got too much 'girly' style. (My brother will wear a flowered shirt, so he'd accept some decoration on his bag, but a plainer bag would be better for his work). Anyway, I'm curious to know if anybody can suggest anything, too (meanwhile, I continue to look...)
I like everything from Shaun Jackson designs. http://www.sjdesign.com/ His designs are rugged, masculine, and ingenious about fitting everything one might want into an organized space. Shaun Jackson is an award-winning professor of design, and it shows.
