I use 2 items that I can suggest
	i said screw damage a while back, and started buying disposable  
laptops ( $1k price point ).  after looking for months, i finally  
bought a laptop bag from Jack Spade.


	its a little pricey, but completely worth it.   it has a removable  
padded laptop sleeve, a ton of pockets & organizers.
	it handles a book (why not?), laptop, misc cables, ipod, camera, etc  
etc etc ,  in a super convenient & accessible manner.

	if you're worried about damage, the laptop case from ZeroHalliburton  
is great.  its the same thing that they use for guns, drugs & cash in  
spy movies ( polished aluminum hard case )
