    17" mac & iLap

    Both the 17" macbook pro and 17" widescreen iLap fit in the Smart Alec, along with power cords, etc. The iLap doesn't interfere with the water bottle pocket, either - it can still hold a 20 oz. Swiss Gear bottle

      Another question. I obviously should have looked harder at a Freudian Slip before, because now I find myself really wanting one, particularly for travel with the Smart Alec. Which leads to my question: Will a Vertical Freudian Slip fit well into the Smart Alec along with a size 6 Vertical Brain Cell? If so, how much room will the combination leave in the Smart Alec's main compartment?

      Thanks,
      Tim

        Yes: the Vertical Freudian Slip will fit well with the Size 6 Vertical Brain Cell in the main compartment of the Smart Alec. It's difficult to describe exactly how much room would be leftover -- I'd say enough for a couple of big books and a jacket.
        Have a question? @Darcy (to make sure I see it)

          Thanks, Darcy! I'll get me a Freudian Slip when the budget permits.

          Best,

            I'd love to see a picture of the Smart Alec with the new solar pattern inside; any idea when we might see any on the website?

              Maybe today! We just received one from our factory to photograph.

                  Is the Smart Alec shipping? The web page still states it's in pre-order and shipping in mid February.

                  I'd also love to see new pictures. Any chance you'll produce a black and grape/plum Smart Alec again?

                    The Smart Alec has just now - as of five minutes ago - been listed as back in-stock! New pictures of the Steel/Solar are on the blog today:

                    Sorry - we won't have Grape again.

                      Steel / Solar looks very nice. The bright color should help with the narrow mouth of the bag hiding the bottom contents.
