Like most laptop users I have tried a lot of different bags and currently own a number of different bags to carry my computers around. In particular a big problem for me has been to find a bag that really works well with the 17-inch PowerBook / MacBook laptop computer.
Well I think I have finally found the bag that will replace all my other bags and it was a complete surprise to me. My recently aquired Artificial Intelligence laptop bag came with the Think Tank Airport Acceleration legal carry on airline backpack as a removable laptop pouch. As you can see from the picture below the Artificial Intelligence slips into a pouch on the front of the Airport Acceleration backpack.
Fortunately the Artificial Intelligence laptop bag is also available to be purchased separately without the camera backpack. The bag is well padded throughout and offers very good protection for your laptop, yet is less than two inches in depth. There is a bellowed pocket on the front of the Artificial Intelligence that will hold your power supply and cables, which also includes a small organizer pouch for pens, business cards, small notebook, etc. On the rear of the bag there is a large pocket suitable for a large envelope of business papers, a magazine or a newspaper.
I can fit my 17-inch PowerBook into the Artificial Intelligence 15, but it is a very tight fit, so I reccomend buying the larger bag (pictured above) for anything bigger than a 15-inch laptop.. As you can see from the images above the bag has a very elegant and business like look to it, as well as being extremely rugged. So it would not be out of place in any situation. If you buy one of these, be prepared for a lot of people asking you, where you got that incredibly nice (and so thin) laptop bag.
