    Talk about frustration! Most of you know I picked up a 17 inch laptop recently. Well for a temporary carrying solution I picked up a backpack style bag for about $30. I've discovered I really don't like the backpack style so I started searching for what I wanted in an expandable, leather shoulder carry.
    Since I want a little extra room I type in 18" (18 inch/eighteen inch, etc) laptop bag (case, etc) and the results come up with all different sizes not 18" specifically. Not only not 18" specifically there are 2000 + listings to search through and most appear to be 16" or smaller! :evil:
    If I add the specifics I want or search with parentheses it gets even worse, nothing is found.
    Now somehow I get lucky on an E-Bay search and find the exact bag I want, 18" expandable, shoulder carry soft briefcase style constructed of distressed brown leather. Then I see the price. :eek: I am not paying $420 F#*%ing bucks for a f*#%ing laptop bag!!!!!!!!!!

    $420 on Ebay? :eusa_eh: Damn. I was going to say just take your computzor to a store that sells these kinds of bags and try it out there... but I doubt they'd be cheaper than what you found on Ebay.

    It's got to be the leather that's so expensive. Is that material mandatory for you? Think of the cows, ffs.

    It's for an iPad, but I bet you can get one for a laptop. It's even got pretty sequins on it.

    Because I'm spoiled by my 24" desktop monitor besides my 17.3 inch laptop is as light as my old Lenovo 15" Thinkpad. Also I really don't like having to wear reading glasses to work on my laptop or watch movies or play games.

    That's about a fifth of the thickness I need.
