    looking for a backpack to carry a 17 macbook pro.

    i also carry around a 6x8 intous 3 tablet and charger.

    any suggestions to carry those things.

    would the incase backpack work in carrying those things?

    yeah buy a northface backpack. im using one right now and in the biggest pocket it has this sort of pocket that has a clip on strap that you can tighten and put your laptop in securely. its the northface optimus.

    I recently went from the world of Messenger bags back to Backpacks. I picked up a North Face Recon, and I must say with little hyperbole that it is the best bag/backpack I've used. You can't go wrong with it. I also got it for like $49 somewhere, just search the web.

    northface makes backpacks especially made for laptops?

    do you know if they fit the 17 books?

    While the recon is Great, a 17" would be awfully long. I don't think it'd fit. As far as North Face laptop Backpacks, yes. Check out their website. Then search reviews online. That's one of the reasons I picked the Recon, the reviews were awesome

    thanks for the suggestions, i ended up goin with the incase backpack, not bad has a ton of pockets to store stuff in and the padding in the arm rests are pretty great!
