    I bought a Spire backpack this year and love it. The padded pouch that comes with it the notebook very secure. I can say that the bag is weatherproof as well. I was caught in the rain on my walk home from the libary with my laptop on. The only knock against Spire is the price, but I think its worth it.

    gotta back this up, at DC12 this year I got the larger of the two bobblbees (megalopolis?) ... this thing holds my dell 9100 (with a 15.4'' screen) with NO problems

    and even has room for my external 250GB HD, power adapters, wifi cards, antenna, and assorted other crap ...

    and it's comfy too :)
    spent 4 hours at BWI airport with this thing, only had to take it off once

    I have the Targus TSB312 (actually, the model before that one, but very close), and I love it. It holds a ton, built well, fits on the back well, and even straps on to the back of my motorcycle perfectly.

I have my heart set on one ever since Astcell introduced me to them.

    The pack is modular, parts come off and snap on and look like they are always there.

    I cant see the picture of it in my browser but I picked up my laptop backpack at FRY'S Electronics for a whole wopping $4 on clearance and after looking on fry's website I belive they still have it foe $8.99, but I can't see the picture of it so I'm not sure. It is made by the same manufacture as the one here.

    Actually here is the link to more backpacs at fry's. There are several at reduced prices. The one that I bought is nice and compact, and best of all it was cheap.

I put about 70 lbs in it and carrying it on my back was less of a burden than my 7 lb camera in my hands!

    I bet if you e-mail them and cry they may give you the same deal. ;)
    Thank you for the advice.
