    the cadet definitely looks very professional! in additional to being highly functional, its simple and sleek lines make it look very sharp!

    fair warning: like other tom bihn bags, it is really hard to not look at it, specially when you first get it. so don't give it to your son at a time that he has a deadline he's working towards. a new tom bihn bag can affect your productivity. i'm sitting here working, and can't help but turn my head again and again and admire the cadet!

      Poor maverick: I hope you don't have a deadline! (And you made me laugh.)

                      the 17" mbp is quite something! i've used a 17" powerbook back in the day, but am currently using the 13" macbook air and was using the 11" macbook air before that. when i was using the 11" macbook air, i remember handling a 17" macbook pro, and it felt huge!

                      so darcy, just for avservice, can we make a cadet that will accommodate the 17" macbook pro?

                              My 13" started giving me trouble while on an out of town job and I had the 17" with me for some Windows software I needed but I had yet to decide if I really wanted to go "That Big"?

                              I needed to transfer my software Key for the automation control I was working with to something so the 17" stepped up.

                              It does seem and feel HUGE compared to the 13" and the 11" I was also carrying but my software compile times went from 47 minutes whenever I made any change at all down to under 4 minutes with the 17" breathing fire!

                              Had I had any inkling of the speed difference I would have switched long before or found a 15" equal to the task but I got an unbelievable deal on the 17" and it goes in the SE or Tri-Star so I can get excited about that!

                              I also really like the added resolution and space in all ways the 17" provides but the 6lb boat anchor like weight is taking getting used to.

                              Maybe the right 15" would be perfect?!?

                                i loved the size of the 11", but my eyes are getting older and the 13" provides a good compromise.

                                i think i would be tempted by a 15" macbook air.

                                it's funny that the weight of the 17" seems so unreasonable now - we are so spoiled! i had a toshiba tecra back in the day that probably weighed 8 lbs and was over 2" thick!
