Can someone recommend a laptop bag that comfortably handles weight and looks good?

    I was looking at the Chromes but they don`t appear to be very comfortable or ergonomic. The new Booq bags apparently are very comfortable but their looks are a bit wonky to me. I`m not crazy about the Timbuks but that may be where I`m heading. I think the most important qualities for me is that the bag not be too bulky (while still having space for a 13 inch Macbook, some accessories and some magazines or a book or two) and be able to take some weight off through well-conceived ergonomics.

    Have a look at crumpler Bags - Very nice, Strong and sooo comfy to carry. I have a Cheesy Tina in Roadkill Red and its perfect for 13" Macbook/Air. They do many different styles.

    (oh and it was £65 so good value too)

    You will probably like this:

    It's what I use. Perfectly specced for the 13" Macbook with a sleeve inside. Plenty of compartments and pen holders inside. Not at all bulky yet spacious. Quality material, durable, and best of all, professional and very sleek and chic. I love it. It's not too badly priced at $99 too.

    I just picked up one of these at a local Apple store. There are other colours available at the be-ez site, and they fit computers up to 15". It actually fits my Aluminum Macbook really well, and the vertical alignment means there isn't as much wiggle room (only one inch compared to two inches horizontally).

    I second the Crumpler notion. Look good, hard wearing.

    Thirded. I just bought one for my new MacBook (Late 2008) and it's great.

    Problem is (at least as of last week) they're sold out at crumpler.com and amazon.com. I ended up using Bag You (http://www.bagyou.com). $85 with no tax and free UPS shipping. That might seem a little expensive, but it's a great bag and worth every penny.

    You can't go wrong with a Booq sleeve, best sleeves on the market!

    I personally use a Wenger, Swiss Gear backpack because of it's space and comfort. Sadly, the backpack I'm using have been out of production for the longest. It's so small when compared to the other / newer ones.

    Other than that, I've been eyeing on these laptop shoulder bags. Oddly enough I found these from Game Informer. Now I need to start finding the funds to pick one of these up.

    And here's another store to look into.
