This review is from: Case Logic Black 17" Laptop Backpack Model VNB-217
Pros: Fits everything I need and provides great protection for my laptop. Plenty of room for extra stuff I don't need.
Cons: Not really a con, but it's not extraordinarily comfortable, it does get the job done though.
Other Thoughts: So far, in a day, I've stuff this thing with 3 days worth of clothes, random art supplies, and my laptop. Surprisingly each compartment held together quite well and my machine (in its own compartment) didn't feel crushed at all. To clarify there are 2 large padded compartments where you can place your laptop or tablet, a slightly smaller compartment for books and pens, a really small zip-up pocket in the front, and of course the mesh bottle holster.
The padding on the bottom is amazing simply because it exists. Most $70 bags have absolutely no padding to protect your machine. I've managed to confidently plop this bag from about a couple inches off of the ground knowing my laptop was perfectly safe. Not that I would recommend tossing this bag around with your computer inside, just know if it was to suddenly drop from about ankle height your stuff will be protected.
Solid construction and there's also a vent on the padding that comes in contact with your back for hot days. At least I assume that's what it's for, I own hydration backpacks (Camelbak) with a similar feature.
This review is from: CORSAIR 4GB DDR3 1066 Memory for Apple Model CMSA4GX3M1A1066C7
Pros: Awesome, works as advertised. Faster performance and enough power to spare.
Other Thoughts: I do print work, video editing, and some 3-D modeling on my 2010 MBP, I appreciate the performance boost.
I originally bought this to fix a pre-existing problem I thought I had with my stock RAM. The problem ended up being with the logic board, and it still took this RAM in no problem. Even before it was fixed it was considerably faster with this RAM. The new RAM may be affecting battery life, but honestly it's kind of expected.
