    Heheh, that's great. "The pool on the roof has a leak!!" My boyfriend and I watched that movie as a "date" once. And we read 2600 on another. XD

    I agree with you about the need for pockets, though... I just like stuff that is straightforward and not really fancy, so I just have a plain black laptop case, but it doesn't have any pockets... and I'd prefer to have a place to keep the power stuff and extra battery and mouse (I hate hate hate the touchpad thing... oops, went Kefka there for a bit).

    Yeah, for our first date, my boyfriend and I watched WarGames. When we had a NU Ubuntu Team meetup, I didn't know what anyone looked like and held up Linux Format. Didn't work. When I found them, I mentioned it, and Brunellus said "well maybe if you were waving around 2600..." and I pulled it out followed by the rest. That display of h4x0r-media made my poli sci teacher suggest I go into the "international cybercrime" field hehe

    I use a cloth bag my friend quilted me for birthday (with secret pockets!). I especially like that it doesn't look like a laptop bag, so I'm not walking around with a giant "mug me" sign.

    Personally, I just have the default black boring bag... I've wanted a girly one, but I just can't seem to find one that fits what I'm looking for.... Most of the girly ones I've found have horribly short handles, and I don't really like carrying something that bulky under my armpit, I'd rather a longer strap and have it down to my hip.

    Nikkiana, yeah, generally the ones in the stores I hate. I just happened the like the one at Circuit city and I'm starting to dispise it (it's very, very, VERY large). The bag was large with a sleve, and I found that I was always just using the sleve (it only has two pockets). Though I love it, the sleve's connections to the straps are wearing thin and I fear the day when it breaks off and pop goes the laptop.

    Thus, I think I'm going to get one of the custom laptops from etsy.com I posted. Since it's custom, I'm sure I can request the maker to sew some pockets for me for some extra dough if they don't come with any, and I get to pick all of the fabric. Generally, if a sleve has a handle it's either a HANDle or a long strap to have it hang on your hip (where it'll bounce by the way!).

    I hope the links people post help you.

    I'm not a girl (surprise!), but my daughter has a 12" netbook, and we spent a considerable amount of time shopping for an attractive case. We found this site:

    http://estore.work2beauty.com/

    It has an enormous variety of netbook cases with some lovely patterns. They're in Taiwan so it will take a couple of weeks to ship.

    I don't see any full-sized laptop cases, though, just netbook sleeves.
