    Ristretto for 13" Macbook Pro - dimensions

    Hey, everyone! Does anyone who owns this bag know if a netbook with the dimensions of 13.03" x 9.21" x 0.84" would fit?

    The description for the Ristretto says that the padded compartment is 12.8" x 9" x 1", but I was wondering if there might be enough give/stretch for the netbook to squeeze inside.

    I do not have a 13" Ristretto but I did a lot of research to see if it would fit my laptop. There is a similar discussion thread - Ristretto and Occasionally Carrying a 15" MBP where I summarized some of the discussions I found on what will fit into the bag (no, a 15" MBP will not fit ) but your netbook should IMO.

    It seems that the 13.03" is ok (might not be easy to close the Interior cache flap that goes over just the laptop compartment - not the main flap). I would suspect that the extra 0.2 width would not be an issue either.
    Alternately, you could put the netbook is a sleeve in the main compartment in front of the Ristretto Interior cache - that area is 10.5" x 13.5". You could use the cache built in sleeve to hold an iPad or your 8.5 x 11 papers.

    The TB crew could also test with your dimensions using a sample bag they may have around if you ask them.

    Hope this helps
