Okay, so I'm getting a new 15" powerbook. I want to get a sleeve, bookbag, stand, and maybe something to protect the screen/keyboard. If someone could point me in the right direction of what to get that would be nice. Im new and have searched and haven't really found anything specific. thanks.

frank.

Personally, I love my Tucano Second Skin Sleeve, and my Targus Groove Backpack. The sleeve fits perfectly with my 15" PowerBook, and the Groove backpack fits all my accessories plus more.

I also just bought a 15" PB. I decided to go for the Timbuk2's Commute bag. Perfect fit for the 15" PB and lots of pocket. Very strong design. I consider it as a laptop «bunker». Padded everywhere.

I am using their bag in blue. Beautiful fabric, build quality, etc. But the buckle is an absolutely horrendous design. There is no strap adjustment to tighten down the front flap. It comes undone all the time. When this happens, the loose buckle parts will clang against each other as I am walking. Very, VERY annoying! Even with the money I drop on this, the next time I see a nice looking bag, this'll be history.

Ditto, except that it's called the Griffin iCurve. Anyway, it's a must-have for laptops that'll see any desktop usage – absolutely awesome stand.
