    Kelly makes great backpacks, although I think most are outside your original price range. I wouldn't worry about Kelly backpacks holding up, they will easily handle your needs.

    Just over that $100 price point is the Patagonia Black Hole Daypack - 25L, water proof and with excellent reviews at REI and Amazon.

    Around the $90 price point is the Patagonia Refugio, another rugged 28L pack, features a padded base and made from 840-denier 100 percent ballistics nylon. While not waterproof it is water resistant. Meaning a a light shower or encounter with a sprinkler will not ruin ones travel.

    Outdoor gear lab, (can I mention that here?) has a review of what Outdoor gear lab has comparisions with similar packs.

    Nice packs! i see blackhole but too much tecnical for me, yes it's waterproof but don't has pocket.
    i see refugio and jalama (i like it) nice packs but i would to find something without a laptop pocket apart

    edit: im watching timbuk2 backpacks and i like a lot of them! but none water resistant or waterproof (only few out of budget). I not found details about materials

    Waterproof packs are likely over your pricepoint. Might be worth looking for waterproof sleeve for your laptop such as the Simply Waterproof Laptop Sleeve, that comes in several sizes. That would open more options for the pack you choose to carry the laptop. Finding a smaller pack without a laptop sleeve, which in many packs doubles as a hydration compartrment is difficult in the current market.
