    2 sardines are talking to each other. One says: you know, gas prices are killing us. The says: yeah, we should stop driving our cars to work and take public transportation. What!?! And get packed in like commuters!?!?! :laugh:

    I walk to most places. Don't see that as an option... if it's really far more than an hour walk, probably bus or metro.

    If commuting by bike then I have a Swissgear backpack.

    By plane or car it's normally this small Lowepro shoulder bag. However, I also have a selection of sleeves in case I decide to put the computer into another bag.

    Hey John,

    Can you post that attachment pic link again? This one is giving me a permission error. :confused:

    Thanks.

    I think the problem is that I tried to link to an attachment I had used previously.

    Here's that attachment again plus a shot of the front compartment which contains various useful pockets. I would like more bags like that because the contents are easily accessible.

    Right...thats it with the polls for now. I'll release a sneak peek of the guide in a few weeks time, also I have decided that the review will come in parts. The first part will be on the different type of bags available and how to pick the right one for your notebook and for you! :D

    (I'll probably sent a preview of the guide to 2 or 3 people so that they can check its all good to go...:p)

    For the mean time...if anyone have any pictures of your bags...I'd love to include a load of pics in the guide! (post them like John R did above) :D John, is it alright to use your pics from above? :)

    Being a uni student, I take a bus to and from school, as well as to my job during the summer term. I'm thinking about switching to a messenger bag so I stop bumping people :(.

    Um depends.
    Last term I was a 5 minute walking distance from my University. So I'd walk most days. My other method of transportation is my car, that's what I use the most to get around.
    I'll also often travel by plane if I go visit my family or when I leave for work terms.
    Either way, if I ever bring my notebook with my I bring it in my Heys backpack. I rarely bring my notebook with me during everday things (almost never bring it to University with me). But if I do it's almost in my backback, regardless of how I travel.

    I either Drive or Fly in a Helicopter everywhere

    And in any tip i have my 6860-FX in a vaultz aluminum case. The Driving i'm not so worried about, but on the helicopter rides the laptop could be on top and safe, or stuck under 500+lbs of other peoples bags... I prefer not to take chances.

    My only wory has been the vibrations of the helicopter ride, but so far i have had zero problems due to vibrations. And the Vaultz case keeps it nice and snug and protected (though you should see some of the battle damage to the outside of the case):D
