Hi all, Hope this is the right place to ask. So, I have a notebook with of 18'' in size and a netbook of  12'' in size. I want transport both in the same bag (during a flight),but don't want to use a common briefcase or backpack out of fear of damaging them. So, I wonder can you recommend me a  bag that is able to comfortably hold both of them? Many thanks, Rafe  See More
