    Empire Builder + Snake Charmer

    I do not have the snake charmer yet, but my Empire Builder arrived on Monday night and I have a Brain Cell from a previous purchase.

    This bag is as good as everyone else here has said it is. Prior to this I was using a Tumi bag, which is also good quality, but my first impression is that this bag is superior from a quality and design perspective. It's very well put together, in truth the pictures don't do the level of quality justice. I'm not sure any picture could do it justice, I think you just have to hold the bag in your hands and carry it around for a couple of days. At least I did .

    On the snake charmer I do plan to get one as soon as I get a new laptop, at which time I'll be ordering a new brain cell as well .

      While I own both an EB and a Snake Charmer, I do not use the Snake Charmer with the EB. I have attached a lame attempt at a picture. It may be difficult to tell, but the snake charmer is big. This can be a good or a bad thing.

      IMO, the EB has plenty of storage room for a laptop power supply and other items without using a Snake Charmer. I use mine in another bag which does not have such nice, built-in storage. I have a brain cell size 5 (small) and stuffing the Snake Charmer in the EB with it seems crowded to me.

      On the good side for the Snake Charmer - if anyone has purchased a Mac Mini and you need something to haul around the large power supply and a mouse, the Snake Charmer is perfect.

        yup that picture answered my question for me thank you.

        I wont be buying a snake charmer for my eb, but it would be helpful for carrying in my duffelbag, (ipod, mouse, pda) for long trips.
