UPDATE 2: The contest is now closed. Congratulations to kevin and Brent2001! (Don't forget to check Between the Lines this Wednesday for the next question and another chance to win one of two free bags!)

Last week, we gave away our first pair of custom ZDNet-branded Timbuk2 Commute 2.0 laptop bags in honor of our 20th anniversary.

This week, we're doing it again. Get excited!

(For those counting at home, this is week No. 2 of six total weeks of ZDNet-laptop-bag-giveaway fun.)

The bags are sized medium and are black with a gray stripe down the middle, like the photo above. They're TSA compliant and, in a special limited edition twist, customized with ZDNet's iconic red diamond logo.

You can't get them anywhere else. Period.

(Why Timbuk2? As we said last week: like us, they're based in San Francisco. Like us, they're in their early twenties. And like us, they're rugged as hell and perfect for tech.)

What you need to do to win*:

  1. Check the site Wednesday morning for a post about the contest. If you're reading this, you're already here. The second round begins right now, in this blog post.
  2. Respond to the question below by leaving a comment in the TalkBack section below the post. (Don't delay: the contest is open for 48 hours, and ends tomorrow at 11:59 ET. Standard ZDNet contest rules apply; see below for details.)
  3. That's it! We'll pick winners based on the responses we deem most creative, funny or interesting.

We'll announce the winners (pending verification) the following Monday.

THIS WEEK'S QUESTION: What would you stuff in your new laptop bag? And...go!

Good luck!

    That would hold my netbook and power cord with lots of room for a water bottle and a book.

    What would I put in my laptop bag? Is it irony if I say a laptop?

    Everything but a laptop:

    My iPhone4, ASUS Transformer and keyboard dock, delicious snacks, the Interwebz (my MiFi), a magazine for all my gadgets to point and laugh at, some type of office warfare device of mass destruction, cookies cause I love cookies and they are beyond the rank of delicious snacks, some super soft toilet paper because the toilet paper at my office is not so nice on the bum-bum, and my car keys, because they always stab my leg if they are in my pocket.

    I would start with best intentions, with only my laptop, PSU, USB backup drive, essential live CD/DVDs, basic toolkit, and IDE/SATA USB adapter, phone charger and basic cables (RJ45, USB/minUSB/microUSB), headphones, USB rubber keyboard and travel mouse, couple of business cards.<br><br>By the end of the week (going on current contents), there would also be my entire IT CD/DVD collection, a folder full of hand drawn notes, 20 various other "useful looking" cables, probably a second PSU and backup USB drive, various other tools now missing from my main kit, a bunch of networking sundries (keystone jacks, DSL filters, Cat6 jacks), maybe a lighter, half a pack of cigarettes if I've been weak, 2 neoprene beer "coozies", some unopened melted chocolate bars, a bunch of RCA/Phone cables and adapters, an IPV6 subnetting card, some VGA/DVI adapters, a swiss armyknife, 2 empty sunglasses pouches and several receipts for travel tickets... The outside of my bag looks pregnant.

    My lunch (2 soft flour tortillas, meat prepared with Old El Paso seasoning, shredded CoJack cheese, lettuce, diced tomatoes, sour cream and to top it all, a lot of El Tapatio hot sauce! Yum! Dang, now I'm hungry). And my piece of junk Samsung Transform...

    HP laptop, iPhone 4 (personal), Blackberry Bold (work), chargers, magazines and a datebook. That should leave room for the kids in the front panel, the dog in the back, and I'll hang the Mrs. from the strap like a dreamcatcher.

    Everything in my current book bag. It would become my new man purse + laptop.

    A contest for a bag given free,
    if won, in it we'll see,
    a laptop, of course, and some books,
    real ones, not stored on a Nook,
    on a back, on a bike, brought with me.

    So many things. Let's see my rooted Nookcolor, my LG revolution & home charger. A few energy drinks AMP or Brawl, magazines since most of them still aren't online yet. Comic books my Heroclix figures snacks just in case and if need be my old laptop running Linux..

    Things that float.... some really small rocks, apples, lead, and a duck. Also a newt for good measure.

    All my potent portables. iPad 2, Galaxy Tab, Samsung 4G hotspot, notebook and a host of chargers.

    I would carry my combination 8-track tape player/AM Radio, some 8-track tapes (of course), and some scooby snacks.
