Laptop bags are essential if you want to keep your new purchase in tip top condition and away from nicks and scratches. Belkin has seen to your needs by unveiling the Belkin Messenger Bag that comes in two sizes - 15.4" and 17". Thankfully, the Belkin Messenger Bags do provide some space for additional storage, featuring slim designs and plush inner lining as well as multiple compartments for other stuff like cellphones, your Nintendo DS Lite, and power adapter.
The 15.4" Messenger bag will come in jet/cabernet, dove/peony, dove/tarragon, and chocolate/tourmaline colors while the 17" model only comes in chocolate/tourmaline and jet/cabernet. Both models retail for $49.99 a pop. I like the clean and simple design on both bags. What are some of the criteria that you look for when picking up a laptop bag? Do you prefer form over function or vice versa, or a healthy balance of both?
