Hi Dan

Your posting made me race down stairs for my C5's boot & immediately started to try and squeeze my older style 17" PowerBook G4 into the boot.

Due to it's narrower opening I found my laptop had to go in diagonally & would then sit in the boot comfortably, So was it Johny's comment about it being larger on the inside than it first appears.......

However the lap-top might fit, but when in my waterproof throw down stairs proof lap top bag it won't........So I will be interested to see how your design mind makes your machine safe from water and road side shocks and bumps.

Wonder how you've been getting on?

Hi Neil

My current gen MacbookPro fits in perfectly but, no, not in a thick case. I've found a laptop bad that's fairly thin. Hopefully the bumps won't harm it too much. The poor thing has taken quite a lot of battering in it's time but it is a good work horse.

The C5 is proving a good way to get to work (while it's dry at least).

You could just put some foam / bubble rap at the bottom of the boot and to the sides, to help stop it rattling around.
