I got the shoulder bag, but it's a pretty tight/flimsy synthetic thing
with no pockets. Maybe you had the ShoulderBag+ :-) I'm generally fond
of leather bags, but I also like the synthetic one for the Mac Portable:
lots of pockets and padding + cool neoprene handle.

As far as cases go, the aluminum Kaypro 2000 (which, despite the name,
probably isn't Y2K-ready, BTW) is definitely in the top-10. Magnesium
alloys (pioneered by GRiD) are making a comeback (checkout the latest
light-weight HP notebook, for example). But as long as portable makers
are going to use plastic, it should always be translucent green like the
eMate's :-)
