<center>i'm brand new to the tom binh forums. so, hello!
on december 19th, i'll be gifted with a brand new, itty bitty little macbook. awww.
i'm ordering a Smart Alec with Vertical Brain Cell on the 5th, just to make sure my itty bitty new best friend will be well-protected from bandits, the elements, and other threatening forces.
i've read all of the other threads related to the Smart Alec, as well as most of the external reviews. based on the pictures and the descriptions given by its other owners, i assume that it provides enough space for the Size 6 V.B.C.+itty bitty macbook as well as, let's say, a maximum of two textbooks and two sketchpads, plus pens, pencils and a couple of little accessories.
from someone who's actually handled the bag in person - is this a safe assumption? i was initially going to opt for the brain bag, but i think it may be overkill for someone who'll only be carrying a light to moderate load.
thanks very much!
