I have a Retro 10 now and I occasionally stick a 10" Asus netbook in the front pocket where it fits perfectly. Since the Retro 30 looks like the front pockets are separate, I wouldn't be able to do that. How about the back pocket?

I've got the 20. The back pocket is zippered and the front is an expanding pouch. Neither are padded however, so I wouldn't use either for my laptop.

Well its not likely to get smashed up on the short trips I take with it in there. Besides, its just a cheap little netbook so its not the end of the world if something did happen.

I can get my thinkpad in the backpocket. It sticks out a bit. A netbook will fit but the idea that the bag will follow the body stops with the netbook in the back pocket. I think some weight of that what you have in the 30 will put some force on your netbook.

My iPad only just fits in the back of the 30 and it stops the bag being that comfy it no longer flexes into your side.
