View Full Version : Can somebody recommend a backpack for a iPad2 and a business class Laptop?

The OEM Dell laptop bag is a complete piece of garbage. No pouches on the outside of the bag to keep all my power adapters from poking my laptop or iPad. Just a horrible horrible layout. I'd rather have a backpack anyway.

Can anybody recommend a laptop backpack that is durable, provides a separate sleave for a iPad, and has some pouches/storage for accessories?

Thanks much !

Well, how large is your laptop? Also, you should provide styles of backpacks you like.

How big is your laptop, and what is your budget?

booq mamba or booq squeeze. the mamba is one of my favorite backpacks. i'd say it is pretty much perfect for what you want (based on the information you gave). there are less expensive backpacks, of course, but those are usually meant to do double duty for hiking in the wilderness. the booq bag is for hiking in the urban jungle :)

LTs less than 15" across.

Budget - I'm looking for value I suppose. I don't want a cheap piece of garbage but I don't need any Dolce or something like that either !!!

Something like this, perhaps?

Targus also has good bags.

I love my Target Embark laptop backpack, but I don't see it on their website any longer. It cost $19.

I bought a backpack from Samsonite for a small laptop and my iPad.
http://www.samsonite.co.uk/pro-dlx3-business-laptop-backpack-m-35-8cm-14-1inch/product-en.htm they have also other backpacks.
It is not cheap but everything is well protected.

PS When I was looking around what to buy I considered the belkin as well. But I read several posts that the zip is very fragile and breaks easily and could not be fixed
