This is more of a case type preference than a "which case" question. I want to know which class of reviews to go off of. Do you prefer backpacks or side cases? I ask this because I am graduating in the Spring and I don't see the justification of dropping $100 into a laptop compatible backpack if its only going to be used for 6 months. However, if there is a practical application for backpacks in the business world, then I can see purchasing one. Side attache cases though seem to be the norm. On the other hand, for school, the attache cases scream "LAPTOP" especially since I will still have my backpack for books and leave the opportunity open for theft.
