    OK, so in my (neverending) search for a bag for my PB, I've decided that a backpack is what I need. Now I just need suggestions. I need it to meet the following requirements:

    1. Hold my 12" PB well.
    2. Hold 4 high-school textbooks.
    3. Have extra compartments for gadgets, pencils, iPods, etc.
    4. Be comfortable for commuting.

    Any suggestions?

    EDIT: OK, I think I'm pretty serious about the Swiss Gear Maxxum. Anyone have any testimonial with this bag?

    I have one. It is a very nice backpack.
    It has a padded laptop(15.4" Widescreen) compartment, also a place for an ipod or mp3 player, with headphone passthrough. It has another zippered compartment where you could put your books. There's pockets and compartments all over the thing. I bought it to use with my MBP. It hasn't seen much use though. After purchasing it, I decided it wasn't professional enough for my line of work. So, I went out and got a Samsonite Laptop Pillow. If you are interested, I would make you a deal on mine. It's in excellent condition, and just sitting in my closet. The only time I use it, is if I travel for pleasure. Which, unfortunately, isn't very often. Let me know if you are interested.

    tejota1911: Thank you very much for your testimonial. While I would like to purchase yours, I have to say that I bought one on Amazon just yesterday. Thanks though!

    machris: Yeah, I really want a Booq, but I don't have the cash for it right now. Maybe I'll upgrade in the future . . .
