Shoot. Mark's new laptop is just barely too large for my laptop backpack. It's about 1/2 inch too wide. I was hoping he'd be able to use that to carry the laptop to Knights of Columbus meetings, where he has just joined the board, but no such luck. He's off to pick up one that's large enough to fit the laptop and the various other paperwork he carries to meetings.
To make sure that he gets one that's the right size, I looked up the dimensions of his particular make and model. Which is good, because now that I know just what kind of machine it is, I can look online for possible accessories for it as gift ideas. :) Win/win.
