I happened to be on the computer and playing with by camera, so here is your anwer.

This laptop is HP NX 6110 and it's 32,8cm wide and 27cm deep.

As you can see there is about 2-3 cm space left on the side, and about 5cm space left on the top. I am not sure what are the dimensions of your Apple but i think you can measure it yourself :)

Here's the image.

Thanks for that, it helped to work it all out.

here are the specs of the Apple i have:

Height:
2.59 cm (1.0 inch)
Width:
39.2 cm (15.4 inches)
Depth:
26.5 cm (10.4 inches)
Weight:
3.08 kg (6.8 pounds)

Depth wont be an issue... Width could be but it may squeeze in... Hopefully! :)

There is about 6cm space on the top when HP is in there, so it should fit, but it's gonna be close. But my guess is that you can squeeze it in there :)

I just got the 465, and it's beautiful. For the price, well worth it. Barely fits my 5D with 24-70 attached, but it's what I wanted.

Yeah, since I bought it, I've changed from 40D to 1DMII, and it just fits in with the 24-70 f/2.8 L attached.

Yeah, it's not the biggest bag. Especially the camera space could be a little bit higher, but this bag is just what i was looking for, i didn't want a huge bag that can only fit camera stuff.
It's always a compromise..

Agreed - it would be nice if there was an extra inch in the camera compartment, but I'd prefer it smaller, and the bag smaller overall. I can simply put my 70-200 in its lens case in the top compartment, and still have space for 1D+24-70, 10-20, rocket blower, 2xtc and more in the bottom compartment.

The Kata 465 is significantly smaller than the Adventure 9 I have and lighter, less stiff, so hiking will definitely be easier. Also, the Adventure 9 is for traveling in planes and in urban areas where I need my laptop and gear. That is a big bag. The next size bigger Adventure series is new and really so big, I can't carry it.

Kata workmanship is excellent. I think their little swirl logo is useful and attractive to men and women. Good going, Kata!

I was asked to post one image of me using this bag, so here it goes.

It really is not a Huge bag, but it's definately not small either, but i would say it's on the bigger side anyway. If you're looking for a little backbag to carry stuff around, this might not be your choice, if you're looking for a smaller bag -> Kata DR-465 ( same bag, no laptop space and a little bit smaller top compartment )

Sorry i didn't have a better image, it's the usual photographer syndrome; you never have images of yourself :(

In this image, there is not much stuff on the top compartment, and also the laptop compartment is empty. It makes the bag appear smaller.

( please.. no comments on the reversed hood, i know it's reversed :) )

You can fit the Sigma 70-200 f/2.8 in its lens case in the top half, but it's not ideal. . and the 70-200 f/4 does fit in the bottom. . . just.

You mentioned security as a potential problem with this bag. I noticed that Kata doesn't use normal metal zippers. Are the fabric zippers just flat, or are they loops?

If they're loops. could you threat a caribiner through them for some added security?

Not metal zippers, but secure. Wouldn't want to force it, though.

So do they have loops you could slide a carbiner through or other fastener through to secure the bag a little to help prevent pick-pockets from getting into it in crowded places?

That works pretty well with normal zippers with loops on the end. I'm wondering if it's possible with the Kata zippers?

The zippers are not like the "normal zippers", so there isn't this piece of metal and in the end a hole. But you might be able to do it, if you find the right size lock. ( i don't know what a carbiner is.. bad english ).

I can post images of the zippers later this evening.
