I am going off to college next year and just bought a Macbook black and was wondering what would be the best laptop backpack to get. I have narrowed it down between these two models. I am mostly looking for the ability to have textbooks and a laptop in it that is very protected. I am also doing a lot of traveling on planes ect.. Thanks for your help!
