So I'm a student who'll probably end up carrying his 17" uMBP around daily. I've been looking at reviews for backpacks and came across a couple that I liked: 1.) The North Face Surge (has GREAT reviews, seems to be the best seller): http://www.ebags.com/products/index.cfm?modelid=109317 2.) Hurley Word Argyle (Has a nice design, supposedly isn't very high quality though): http://store.apple.com/us/product/TR926LL/A?fnode=MTY1NDA2Ng&mco=NDY3NjE3Mw&p=2&s=priceHL 3.) Swissgear Carbon (I think it looks kind of big): http://store.apple.com/us/product/TU990LL/A?s=priceHL I'll usually be carrying my MBP and 1-2 spiral notebooks and a folder, so I won't need something excessively large. So far I think I'm going with the North Face Surge(either in Black or Bittersweet Brown) only because of the great reviews. Everyone seems to say it's comfortable and does a great job protecting the laptop compartment(which has it's own separate zipper so it's easy to take out). Does anyone else have any recommendations?
