As someone who is constantly having to drag around my laptop, iPad, and all of the cords and accessories that go along with it, I needed to have the perfect laptop bag. For me that is the Mobile Edge Mini Messenger bag!
I love it because it has 2 separate pockets with a padded divider for my MacBook Pro 13" and my iPad. It also has a completely separate pocket with a zipper for all of the cords and accessories that I carry around.
The other reason I really love this bag is because it isn't overly large. If you have anything bigger than a 13" laptop I doubt it will fit. If you need a larger version, they do make one for 16" laptops
as well. This bag isn't heavy and doesn't take up a lot of extra space in my car or around my desk. As I mentioned, I use it with my MacBook Pro, but it would work with any 13" laptop out there.
As with a lot of things I own, I bought mine on Amazon, but you can get them on quite a few websites out there for around $35-$40. There are also multiple colors in case you want something different than the Black and Orange version
that I went with.
