    I use an Eastpak Stammer (Hope the link works, the Eastpak site is a bit too "flashy"), it's got a really large laptop compartment, up to 17''. Big enough for trusty Thinkpad T41 (in a neoprene sleeve for added protection) and some other stuff like a magazine, an A4 writing pad, etc.

    I use this thingy as EDC bag when I go to university. It is really quite roomy: aside from the laptop compartment there is another large compartment (can be flattened via the compression straps), a big organizer pocket for my PDA, notebooks, pens and other useful gizmos and gadgets, and one large flat pocket on the front where I stash various other stuff that happens to come along; headphones, candy ...
    It is really amazing how much fits in there, it does not look that big from the outside.

    I also have two large side pockets (generic hiking stuff) that I can attach to the compression straps to turn it into a 72hrs bag (at least for me, I tend to travel light)

    EDIT: Just seen that the original poster has a backpck now. Too late...

    When I thought I would need to travel with a laptop I picked this up http://www.bfgstore.com/ProductDetails.asp?ProductCode=BFGBKPACK however I never picked up said laptop and therefore never ever used this backpack. I picked it up probably 5 years ago and its been hanging on a coat hanger ever since. BTW the picture DO NOT do the bag justive, its actually extremely nice and i can't believe it's now just $59, when I got mine it was more than twice that price.

    Check out Jim Rosarios Triple Threat Tactical HSLD (High Speed Low Drag) Bag.
    It costs about $500 but its just amazing.

    It may not be the coolest, but this is what I picked up this weekend. I had been searching for a swiss gear bag, but they were all too small to put the amount of books that I need to carry in as well. High Sierra

    Check out this link for a fairly extensive list of laptop bag manufacturers.

    One of my personal favorites is WaterField Designs because of their high quality laptop sleeves that can be used with or without their bags.

    One of the coolest from a tech/survivalist point of view are the bags from Voltaic Systems that have built in solar cells that will recharge your laptop.

    Finally, for it's sheer luxury and minimalist design I'd love to pick up this bag from Zegari, but it is definitely pricey at $325!

    I love my Spire backpack. It has protected my laptop from impacts I thought were enough to break it. Nice design.

    Targus ATW.

    As a matter of fact, I own one myself and I'm pretty darn pleased with it. Very sturdy and rugged; only drawback is cleaning/washing it. It sure is a pain in the bum.

    http://www.targus.com/UK/product_details.asp?sku=TEB02

    This is the bag I currently own; bought it about 3-4 months ago. Very, VERY reliable. Lots of storage compartments, including a nylon pouch on one of the straps, and a secret storage compartment on the base of the bag.

    Well, that's my two fils :broke:

    Best of luck!

    Nothing beats the Booq series for urban computer/edc backpacks. They are pricey but made of top quality materials.

    I have a Booq Python XM and it is a relatively small backpack but it holds EVERYTHING. The interior padded laptop area is great, but the best part is the "bay". The back of the pack opens up like a drawer and reveals tons of INDIVIDUALLY padded pockets and sleeves for storing anything. Nothing goes loose in a Booq bag. There is a compartment for all things.

    Here's some pics.

    I paid $200 for mine and I don't look back. I'll keep this pack forever and it truly makes EDC life easier. Think about it, all those compartments for all our EDC gear, plus room for a laptop. The side compartments are perfect size for a Sigg bottle too!

    This is one deep bump.

    Im still in the market for a new bag myself and after doing the usual rounds last night and ran across this Wenger Swissgear Ibex.

    Play.com seems to be the cheapest for the UK but dunno bout the US. There are a bunch of pics of it on that link, ive counted 7 zip pockets, there appears to be two mesh pockets on the side for water bottles, a bunch of internal pockets in the front for organising gear and can fit 17" laptops. All wrapped in Wenger quality construction.

    That Booq bag does look uber cool though.

    Ogio Metro is my all time favorite, Lots of little pockets inside for more organization. I have a swissgear one I picked up at sams club I used before it, for $25. The only reason why I switched was because the swiss gear one wasn't big enough.
