    Hi guys I have been down this road before and still never found anything hopefully something else can be found this time.

    bag I have found so far which looks good is the STM one though $75 to $89 for this bag.

    Laptop Bags > STM Bags

    Does anyone else have some ideas for simular bags with out the same price tag ?
    if i can not find anything then I will probably end up getting this one.
    but seeing what ideas and what bags every one else uses.

    I want to be able to carry the new ASUS ZENBOOK 13inch notebook and an ipad and adaptors few cables etc,
    want it to be small and as minimal as possible.

    I've been down the same route, looking for months for a bag for both my 13" MacBook Air and iPad plus some accessories. I gave up on proper computer bags in the end as they seem limited in capacity so my solution was to get a standard messenger bag then kitting both my MBA and iPad out in cheap envelope type sleeves. I then have a toiletries bag for cables and adapters which leaves nothing loose to damage my BT keyboard if I decide to pack it as well.

    I bought the medium. It has two main zippered pockets. The second one has a padded area on one side that would fit a 13" laptop, maybe 15 but I'm not positive. The other side of that compartment is split so you can fit an ipad and an e-reader, again they are padded. Overall its a pretty nice bag. I got the gray/green one.
    I see that the large is on sale now if you need or want a little extra room.

    I would say pay the extra and get something that you will firstly enjoy and be proud to have, and will last way way longer.

    both Timbuk2 or STM or even Rickshaw all make excellent bags.

    Whats the point of paying 45$ for some dodgy Chinese replica (sorry, not so politcally correct) if you can get someting great for 70 or 80

    well..that me....

    i carry an 11" MBAir, my iPad, and a notebook (plus the iPad charger) in a small satchel. Super high quality. Look at reviews on YouTube.
