      Comments about Johnston & Murphy PORTFOLIO BRIEFCASE:

      I previously got one of these in black. After four years of hard daily use and constant travel, it needs a couple of minor repairs. But I can't live even one day without one of these because I organize every aspect of life with it (and the iPad it so nicely carries). So I just bought a second one in brown. I thought it was shipped without a shoulder strap so I sent an e-mail and they express-shipped a strap the next day, no questions asked. Of course, I then found the shoulder strap inside an inner pocket! So I'm returning the second strap and entering this very enthusiastic endorsement for this briefcase and for this wonderful company. These briefcases are elegant, well-made, and superbly organized. I expect to be using them for decades to come. They make my crazy constant-travel lifestyle possible!

            Incredible style with substance. The construction quality is excellent. This briefcase will last forever ... and will only improve with age given the quality of the leather. It is high-end in terms of quality while having a casual and comfortable look.

                  Fantastic carry bag for my late-2010 13" Macbook Air laptop, charger, mouse and accessories plus business papers and a folder or 2. The MBA fits perfectly in the interior pocket, and the bottom and sides of the case provide excellent protection. Light, easy to carry, beautiful quality leather.

The leather is also excellent quality... Superb quality at Johnston and Murphy.... My family has never had a problem with their leather goods here!!

                        I love the size. I looked at many, many briefcases that were too big for my needs. It is a little heavy, but that's a good trade for the quality leather it is made from. I like the clean and professional look of it. I use it almost daily and it has held up well. I expect to use it for many years.

                            Your computer will not fit as the Portfolio Briefcase will only accommodate laptop computers up to 14" wide, 10" high, and 2" thick.

                            Since the width of the Mac is 14.35 inches, and this product has space for 14 inches, they would not be compatible.

                            Yes. This bag is a good fit with the Apple laptops, whether MacBook Air or MacBook Pro. The interior pockets could use a makeover to better accommodate power cords and connections.

                            Jess,
                            I bought the portfolio you asked about for the specific purpose of traveling with my MacBook Air.
                            I can tell you after a year's logged miles, it's a perfect investment. There is an elastic mesh pocket inside the folio. The Air snuggly fits there with ample padding and protection from the bumps & bruises of travel.
                            And the folio has all the little cubbyholes needed for cell phones, wireless hotspots, passports, pens, etc. But it doesn't allow me to add the usual 50 lbs of files or gizmos that aren't really needed. I comfortably fly through airports now.
                            I hope you enjoy yours as much as I do mine.

                            I believe they should both fit. Keep in mind your shipment will come with a prepaid shipping label for hassle free returns, should you need to send it back.

                          The little pocket next to the pen loops, it's an odd shape and size. What is recommended to put in it?

                            Few things fit this loop better (or are more applicable this time of year) than a tube of lip balm.

                          I noticed that my porfolio bag is made with magnetic material, so I'm debating if I should put my macbook air 13" inside the bag when I'm moving from class to class. Does anyone who owns one of these know what I'm talking about? Will my laptop be safe from the magnets used to close the flaps and etc.?
