I must have like three bags at home and have given away three others - I just can’t find what I’m looking for! I have a 15” MBP & a Lenovo S10 that I want to carry around along with other devices. I already have a Lowepro backpack for long trips which accommodates everything (damn it gets heavy) - but I need a day to day bag for work. This is what I’d like to put in it:
2x LaCie Rugged Hard Drives
Extra Battery (for MBP)
2x Wall Warts
2x Flash drives (thumbnail style)
Apple Bluetooth Keyboard
Logitech VX Mouse
A few books (usually soft cover manuals)
Spiral or two
Various office supplies (pens, folders, pencils, paper clips...)
Various wires, connectors and doodads
My biggest issue is with manuals (not that big really) pushing against other things like the keyboard and the MBP. The S10 is built like a little brick and I doubt anything in the bag will harm it. The keyboard keeps getting turned on and I have to keep a pack of rechargeable batteries with me all the time when the batteries die (which is a lot). I’m looking for something with a hard divider and a compartment the length of the bag that will keep the keyboard’s keys from being pressed.
One caveat, no rolling bags or camera bags. I’m already covered for long trips.
