    If I can cram my M18x into the M17x-R2 Orion bag I'll stick with that. Otherwise I'll likely just get the M18x Orion and sell the M17x version which has hardly any wear and tear.

    I REALLY like my Swissgear backpack that I currently use for my m17xR1. No way it's gonna fit the 18. Tight fit already. I've never actually checked out one of Alienwares bags first hand. Are they good quality? Hope so since I'll more than likely just buy whatever backpack Alienware is gonna offer for the 18.

    I have the 17" version now and like it a lot actually. It would be my primary backpack except that it does not have the space for text books I had to carry around during college. It is the best laptop carrying backpack I have ever had so far.
