    if you have a bestbuy near you, call and ask if they have some targus groove backpacks on sale. I went to my best buy and found like 100+ of that backpack for $8 ( i bought one cause they are normally $30 everywhere else)

    It IS a backpack, but its pretty nice, definately has room for folders/binders/music player/drink/laptop all at the same time. I think for $8 it is an unbelievably awesome investment.

    That is a simply amazing deal. 8 dollars! i'm gonna go pick up two of these babies tomorrow.

    In fact, i believe officemax has a 115% pricematch guarentee, which would make this about 5 bucks. sweeeeeeet.

    Please do call your bestbuy first! I went to one in Lakewood/Tacoma Washington. Its possible it was only $8 due to their massive inventory of them... i just dont want to waste your time with a useless trip...

    PLEASE DO CALL FIRST!

    I'm probably going to get this (or something similar) since I'm a photographer. It says it comes with a sleeve. Not sure if it's just a dust cover or something taht I can use when I just want to take the tablet around by itself.

    I called my best buy and they said they were all out. However, they accept rainchecks if its in their ad, so make sure you bring a copy.

    Another option is a pricematch at officemax or staples or something. I'll be checking it out.

    Sorry to be offtopic, but as for the backpack itself, the material seems very sturdy, there is a pocket for everything, a hole built for your music player's headphones...

    There are only 2 cons that i can think of for this backpack:

    1. Its not as big as the online pictures make it look (but its not like its small or anything)

    2. There is a waist belt that cannot be removed, only, either hanging down, or clipped out of the way. If i never use this after i get my laptop, im just going to cut it off.

    HISSSSSSSSSSSSSSS! IT BURNS US, PRECIOUS!!!

    lol sorry i got a little off topic but i was actually suggesting you try the backpack instead, since i think you said you would also like something to carry your folders in as well. I know the laptop has room for folders, laptop and more, and for $8 you cant beat it.

    i know... But I don't want a backpack. Not quite as hip modern professional for a Realtor to carry a backpack.

    I'm thinking more a messenger bag or something similar. Targus has some called CityGear and CityLite that I'm looking at. I think the CityLite is $15 after rebates.

    I got the RMA on the case to return. After I took it out and popped it back in several times, the ports lined up better. I'm still not 100% though on the case. I really want to like it because the concept is great.
