Pros Slim profile
Enough pockets for all accessories
Fit 1/2" of paper/binder/notebooks
sturdy - solid, light material
lengthwise, short enough to fit a 5'2" body without being too long and hitting the tailbone
Cons sometimes it could be too slim
backpack being not as professional looking (i.e. not c-suite design, though c-suite material for sure!)
Summary Bought this bag right after acquiring the new macbook pro. My previous laptop was a 12" powerbook, thus needing a bigger bag yet not wanting to go too big for my petite 5'2" body frame. I got the Red one for a little spice. I didn't know the black one was 1/2 the price of the red, had I known that... I could live with the black boredom and more professional look.
