Hot on the heels of the MacWorld announcement of the new unibody 17″ MacBook Pro comes word of new Tom Bihn bags to hold those unibody MacBook Pros. With names like Smart Alec, Empire Builder, and Super Ego, you know they’re good!
The Checkpoint Flyer “is the only “airport checkpoint friendly” laptop bag designed in sizes specifically for Apple laptops.” I don’t know how valid that claim is: there’s also the Travelon 17″ TSA approved bag.
The Brain Cell “has gained a reputation for offering some of the best protection anyone can get for their laptop with 8mm thick soft foam padding and a 12mm thick strip of memory foam inside a 4mm hard corrugated plastic shell that protects from the front, back, and bottom.”
Remember, all Tom Bihn bags are made in Seattle, Washington, and come with a lifetime guarantee.
