Anyone out there that has a decent, not an add on junk-o laptop backpack, not bag, please post a photo of it, and how much stuff you can fit into it. I've been looking at the Booq Bag Python, but i would really like to know what you guys have to say about it before i drop the cash on it. Thanks

Point:

Laptop backpacks or backpacks that look too techy make you look like a computer science major.

No offense to computer science majors.

I usually wear my messenger bags, but I do have one backpack. It's a green army fatique bag from Diesel. Can't really fit my MacBook very well though. Hence the messenger bag.

Used to have an Axio Hybrid bag. It fell apart, so I went to a North Face bag + Incase sleeve. Works great. Highly recommend the bag+sleeve combination approach.
Agreed on that. I have a home made (my mom's very skilled with fabric and a sewing machine so she'll make things if I ask) fitted sleeve for my powerbook that provides padding and protection for the computer, then I just slip it into whatever backpack/bag I choose. That way I'm no dependent on one laptop backpack, I can carry it in any of my three packs...a kelty frame backpacking pack (can't say I've ever taken the laptop in that), a standard jansport backpack, or my dickies messenger bag I've been using of late. :)

Shinza.com

So I have noted this product before in other posts, but I like the Shinza.com products. I have a MBP and a 13 inch MacBook. Both fit great in their sleeves. The company just came out with three different backpacks. I have the ZeroShock Backpack and have been impressed with it. I keep my MBP in a sleeve then slip it inside the backpack. The quality is impressive considering how low the price is (I used a discount coupon given to me by their customer people. I don't know if it is still active, but no harm in trying. enter in: student0707). they have a bunch of pictures on teh site, I would take a few for you, but I am traveling at the moment in Hawaii and don't have time to download them. Email me later in the month and I can send you pics of my MBP in my ZeroShock Backpack if you need to see it in action.

Good luck,

Nicole L.
