I was wondering if those of you who have either of these two bags(or both?) could give me some advice. I want one of these to use for school, and I know the MM measures 10x12, but will it actually fit an 8 1/2x11 notebook? Which would you recommend for school? I'm scared the GM will be a little too big, and the MM might be a little too small to fit books and whatnot. I'm also thinking about special ordering it in damier, but I think I might be too impatient. What do you think? Thanks in advance!!
