We reviewed Mission Workshop’s Vandal backpack last year, and while we were impressed by the fact that it could carry a lot of stuff, we were not happy with its lack of protective padding for a MacBook.

So here it is in all its glory: the week that was WWDC 2012.
Whoa, some pretty good deals on MacBook Airs, but you have to get off your duff and go get them.
