    Hi there! Thanks for visiting

    I am in need of a new backpack to hold my 15" macbook pro, some textbooks and possibly a binder.
    After scrounging the internet for a countless number of days, I have decided to choose either the :

    http://ogio.com/backpacks/newt-ii-s
    or
    the http://goincase.com/products/detail/heathered-backpack-cl55412

    Just wondering if these are good backpacks suited to my needs and if you have any other recommendations of your own (btw, I live in Canada, so international shipping is a must).
    Thanks!

    These seem a little too expensive for my tastes... how about this one?

    http://www.officemax.com/office-supplies/bags-cases/computer-cases/product-prod3490368

    It's stylish, strong, and cheap. What more can you ask for? =D

    I'm not sure if OfficeMax delivers to Canada though. You'll have to research that.

    Thanks for you suggestions. I like the case logic 16" backpack, but I am looking for something a bit more modern/urban? But it is much cheaper so I will have to put it in consideration

    I'm considering buying that one...

    I like it, because its not too big, and looks not "office-like" - I like it! And as stated in the comments, it fits 15,6" laptops too - so its not only for 14inchers

    I like Heys. Their backpacks have well padded side compartments for laptops. It is a great quality bag, I've had it for years and it still looks brand new. I bought it at The Bay (in Canada) but they sell it online as well.

    I really like this bag. Could you tell me how much stuff this bag holds?
    Thanks

    I have this one
    http://www.amazon.com/Targus-Cityge...1_16?s=apparel&ie=UTF8&qid=1335466222&sr=1-16

    I just returned from a road trip. On that road trip I had a 14" Dell latitude, a 13" MBP (including power adapters for both), a 10.1" Acer Android tablet, two 2.5" external HDDs, a couple LAN cables and a wallwart and USB cable for charging my phone, all in that backpack. There was room to spare even. I've had mine for 5-6 years now and don't regret buying it one bit. It also fits my 15.4" HP laptop (in place of the work-issued Dell) when I take personal trips.

    There's a 17" version if you want a little more space.

    Tom Bihn Brain Bag with a vertical brain cell is what I'm using for my 15" MBP. Love the combo and the brain cell keeps my laptop safe. Brain cell is removable so I can take just that if I only need my laptop.
