how do you protect your laptop in you bag? do those little slide over covers actually do anything? im becoming pretty paranoid about it now that i carry it everyday... mainly just incase the screen cracks. best way to protect?

Buy a specifically designed laptop backpack. Targus makes some awesome ones. I got this one and I couldn't be happier. I don't go to college or anything, but there is a nice padded section for the laptop, and plenty of other compartments for anything else you may need.

It's roomy, strong, and nicely adjustable. You can also probably find them a bit cheaper at http://www.walmart.com.

That's what I did!

I have a North Face backpack with a laptop compartment in it. 2 1/2 years using it to carry my laptop and haven't had a problem yet.

I have that exact one, and I think it's great. I was worried that when carrying a lot of stuff around in the bag with it on your back, the weight is against the laptop--but it's quite well padded. I've dropped the backpack full of heavy stuff a few times, and my lappy is still perfect (other than regular use, lol). I would also recommend it, though look for it online--store prices are awful sometimes. I got mine at a store on a good sale. Keep your eye out.

I have a old OGIO Friction backpack (2.5 years) that I use in addition to the neoprene sleeve that came with my 1000HE.

There's a nice padded inner compartment for notebooks up to 15.4" (even has a nylon/velcro strap to secure the notebook in place). The only thing I find it lacks is a bit more room in the main compartment and cushion/padding on the bottom of the bag.

Otherwise, it has a very nice inner lining that makes the whole bag very water resistant. I've used it in several heavy rains with an umbrella most of the time. I've only had one worry where the inner lining felt wet one time where I was caught in a heavy thunderstorm without an umbrella.

Overall a very sturdy and rugged bag. Lives up to the OGIO name (started out as a specialty brand for winter athletes).
