one more bag, Booq this time.

On Wednesday, I decided to get a new backpack. I had been looking for a new laptop since I ordered my MacBook Pro in late February. You might recall that I bought a Crumpler Sinking Barge, then exchanged it for Crumpler Considerable Embarrassment (laptop shoulder bag) and a Crumpler 6 Million Dollar Home (camera bag). Then the Considerable Embarrassment was upgraded to Dreadful Embarrassment (17-inch).

I really like the Crumpler Considerable Embarrassment, but it's a shoulder bag (messenger bag), and I need a backpack.

(photos of the new bag follow...)

I was browsing Rushfaster website, and noticed they are having discounts on Booq Boa MX bag, and this bag was in my consideration list. $50 off is not a bad deal.

Booq Boa MX 15-inch Laptop BackpackPerhaps this photo from Rushfaster looks better. Booq Boa MX is very well designed. Comfortable to carry and plenty of useful space for carrying items.

A recommendation on buying laptop bags. Don't buy the laptop bag that is too cheap, or the one that does not have room for anything else (besides the laptop itself). If you need a bag to carry your laptop, chances are, you will need to carry other items such as power adapter, mouse, and other gadgets as well as basic pen and paper.

A benefit of backpack over shoulder bag is that most weight is distributed to two shoulders. If carrying heavy items, it simply makes the shoulder(s) happier with less pressure.

Laurent has been complaining that I was crazy about bags. I must be. This is be the last last bag I buy for the meantime. (To Don, I am poor.)

You know, my laptop bag is used and has enough scuff marks on it to make some people believe that it went through a meat grinder.

But you Don, don't suffer from Antony's pathelogical need to show off!!There is a remote village saying, "the man who makes the most impression is the man who says least, and has less personal property."

Hello, I see you've used crumpler and booq, so you've experience with both brands. I want to give a backpack to my boyfriend for his birthday and I'm between Crumpler "The Dark Side" and Booq Mamba. Could you tell me what you think? Thanks in advance!
