Hi everyone, I am starting medical school in the fall and am starting to look into supplies. I am buying my first notebook and need a good sturdy backpack for it. I need something that looks professional, is very functional, and does not scream out "I have a laptop in here". I am not buying a Mac, but my research into laptop backpacks have brought me to two bags that were made for Mac Books, so I thought I'd come to this forum to ask. I've heard very good things about the BBP Industries bag and the Level 8 Atlas bag. Of the two, I've seen the Level 8 bag at the Apple Store. It seemed like a very well-built backpack. I have not seen the BBP bag, but trust all the people who say it's great. The Level 8 bag seems a lot heftier than the BBP. The Level 8 bag ends up being $108 after tax while the BBP bag is $82 shipped. Which is the better bag? The Level 8 bag is TSA-friendly, but I only travel 2-4 times a year so it's not a big deal. Neither bag has a bright inside lining (which I tend to like since my cords/cables are always black). The BBP bag seems to do a good job pretending it's not a laptop backpack. They're both great bags so it probably just comes down to personal preference. I need to fit a 13.3" notebook, two textbooks, two spiral-bound notebooks, and plenty of pens/pencils. I was also looking at the Brenthaven MetroLite backpack, but I've realized it won't fit all I need it to fit.
