Bags · The com­bo rol­lie/back­pack lap­top case I bought two years back is start­ing to wear out, and I’ve de­cid­ed that the rol­lie fea­ture is not cost-effective; there are lots of times I can’t use it, and the mech­a­nism adds weight and bulk while rob­bing me of space. So I’ve been pok­ing around look­ing for good lap­top packs (has to be a pack so I can put a change of clothes in for my fre­quent overnighter­s). David Wein­berg­er told me that Crum­pler was a hot name, and in look­ing at them I ran across some oth­er in­ter­est­ing can­di­dates via re­views that said “and the com­pe­ti­tion is...” The can­di­dates are the Crum­pler King Sin­gle (that web­site is to­tal­ly try­ing too hard), the Tom Bi­hn Brain Bag, and the Road­Wired Dig­i­tal Day­pack. Any­one out there got one of the­se, or want to weigh on on the sub­ject of the ide­al lap­top pack? [Up­date: GAAAAAAAAAAAAH! I’m buried, even more peo­ple care about lap­top bags than about car­bonara sauce, even. I must must MUST do that com­ments sys­tem.] [Dear Tom Bi­hn: you owe the LazyWeb a cou­ple hun­dred bucks worth of thanks. I just or­dered a Brain Bag with all the fix­ings. Dear Crum­pler: please fix that egre­gious web­site. What part of “don’t of­fend ev­ery com­put­er pro­fes­sion­al on the planet” don’t you un­der­stand? Dear world: please stop send­ing me laptop-bag email.] ...
