And that's exactly what this is! The Acme laptop sleeve leaves not a centimeter of space for anything BUT your Macbook.
I think that thing that throws you off with this is that the case is so pretty (protective plastic in the front, and a tough clothlike back). Then there's the strap, which holds the case nicely.
But who uses a strap on a notebook sleeve? You usually put the laptop in the sleeve and put that in another carrying case.
I guess I can see this making sense if you have a Macbook Air. The case of the laptop is much lighter (natch), and using a cute little carrying case with a shoulder strap seems more practical, since you're keeping it all on the light side.
Don't get me wrong. The Acme's construction is perfectly fine for carrying a heavier 15" Macbook. It's just that there's no room, and I do mean NO room, for anything else!
It's a shame, too, because this case really is cute. Ah well. Maybe I'll save this for the Macbook Air I'm dying to get (or the mythical Mac Netbook I keep dreaming of!)
Five stars for style and protection; three for "where do I put the adapter??"

The Smart Laptop Sleeve by Acme Made is a great looking laptop sleeve at an even greater looking price. The Sleeve is ultra slender, with a designer-styled front panel and a highly water-resistant exterior. But while sexy on the outside, it’s all business on the inside as the Smart Laptop Sleeve boasts some heavy duty protection, too. From ballistic nylon and premium tricot lining to its closed-cell foam padding, this sexy little bag has a lot more going for it than simply good looks.
