Confession: Until a few months ago, I pretty much exclusively hauled around my MacBook Pro in those free canvas totes you pick up at events. Stylish laptop bags they were not, but after switching to a 15-inch screen, I suddenly found that all my "real" bags were simply too small. Fortunately, I came to my senses and realized that I carry that thing around often enough to justify a proper leather version.
Finally, I can fit all my stuff in one bag rather than constantly schlepping three around with me—and as an added bonus, my laptop feels more secure, and I feel like I have my sh*t together (well, most of the time).
