Best Backpack for 13 inch Macbook Pro?

I just bought my Macbook Pro 13" and Im kinda new to Macs but I am impressed overall! I just need some help on what kind of backpack to buy. My budget is spending about $60 Max ( i know im cheap) But im a high school senior and all i need is something that will protect my Macbook and able to carry a couple of books and folders, etc. Thanks again

ive been using a jansport aircure for a while now. of course not the BEST but for the price its been GREAT for the past few years. if your looking for something really nice and not worried about the price id check out Booq. Great design, great reviews. http://www.booqbags.com/13-inch-macbook-bags
hope this helps

EDIT: didnt read your 60 dollar max... lazy. anyways check out the jansport aircure. great bag decent price. worth it.

backback w/laptop compartments are expensive for a good brand. Have you considered using your old backpack with a standard case? I use an "incase" neorporne faux lined fur case. In a backpack and it is great. It also fits your budget and is more versatile.

i did that for about a month until i dented the corner of the laptop droppin gthe back. just doesnt provide enough protection. pay your 60 dollars to save much more in the long run.

That is true, even with my incase it doesn't feel like its being protected in my backpack alone. I think i found a good backpack at a great price tell me what you think about it, please!

its the 2010 model which is nore discontinued. incase does have a newer version but they removed a bunch of features of it like the waist straps and a few internal pockets.

u can try ebay or amazon, or if u like the new version u could go for that.

however they range from 70-120 dollars depending on whether ur looking at the nylon or canvas options lol
