    not sure how much it is in dollars, and not really a back pack but the Crumpler 600 daily is an awesome bag (will be getting one for my birthday in a few weeks time)

    That seems too little money for anything good.

    So, there are a couple of those Lowepro that can actually be had for $150.

    I can't find Kata here, so I don't know. I always buy Lowepro.

    the daily 600 will take 2 bodies, 6 lenses, accessories and up a 17' laptop.

    I have a Domke "outback". It may be even larger than you need. But if you need a backpack you may need a place for some water, food, a jacket,, tripod and so on.

    Look at this page. The Domke is near the bottom

    That said, l normally use a Pelican case now. I'll just put the case inside a standard top loading backpack. Yes it's heavy buy those cases can really handle abuse

    The page you link to doesn't say anything about a computer compartment in any of the bags. BTW I like how that page describes a Lowepro backback as "relatively compact (for its size)". On a related note, people tell me I'm relatively tall (for my height). :D

    I carry my camera, lenses, Macbook Pro and other odds and ends in a Crumpler Sinking Barge. It's not designed for two bodies, though. You could put the second body (w/o attached lens) into the upper compartment, I suppose - but the (new) price is higher than you say you want to pay. I'm quiet happy with the backpack, though.

    Out of interest, what exactly are the bodies and lenses you're carrying?

    2 rebels, a 10-22, a 18-55, a 28-135, and a 300/4 would be very different than 2 1D's, a 16-35II, a 24-70, a 24-105, and a 300/2.8.

    The Domke uses deviders that are held in place with velcro. You can
    remove them all and have just one big compartment if you like.

    I really thing the best way to go is just to get a conventional
    mountaineering style packpack Buy a Domke divider set.
    (Domke sells many different kinds.) and put it inside a
    back pack or when you need to protect the equipment use
    a pelican case inside the packback.
