    Sorry, should have been more specific, I need a bag or a sleeve so that I can transport it safely.

    Josh,

    If it were me going to college or uni (again), I'd for sure get a back pack style case. If your colleges are anything like ours, you do a lot of walking, bike riding, etc. around campus. Having a back pack allows you to put your laptop and your books in one single container that you can strap to your back. Much easier to carry in my opinion. :yes:

    The Apple UK store has a number of them here.

    Both Incase and Brenthaven have gotten good reviews. :thumbsup:

    Can't speak about the Tucano ones since I've never heard anything about them. :unsure:

    Tom :)macwave:... wish I'd had a computer when I was in college!)

    Thanks guys :) I'll have a look at those. I've seen the ones on apple store but wondered if anyone had any good (or bad even) reviews so I'll have a look at ones on the apple website :yes:

    Josh,

    If you see one you like but it doesn't have a review, be sure to check the US Apple Store also. I just checked the Brenthaven Expandable Trek Backpack and while the UK site doesn't show any reviews, the US site does! Just substitute US for UK in the URL. :thumbsup:

    Tom :)macwave:... comparative shopping!)

    I have the market cornered on laptop bags... well, between Keith and I we do. :D

    My favorite so far is a Mandarina Duck over the shoulder.

    I do think a backpack is a great idea though. I had one at uni, and it made a world of difference.

    exposing my guilty secrets :lol:

    yep I have lots, far too many :lol:

    As everyone says a good backpack with a separate laptop padded compartment would seem best.

    We had so many huge law books that some people carried them around in small suitcases :lol: but nowadays I guess they'd all be on an ipad or something ;)
