I think I've seen these at our local Walmart. Might be cheaper there and you check out the Walmart.com site as well. just a thought

I am not sure how often you plan on using the backpack or how much you would be walking with it on your back, but if you are looking for something comfortable I would check at Best Buy if there is one near you. My husband has to travel for work and he LOVES the one he bought. I want to say that it was made by like Swiss Army. It has excellent padding and shock absorbers. When he bought it I believe it was $80, but I have since seen it on sale for $40 or $50. When we were at Disney it doubled as a regular backpack while the laptop was in the safe. He didn't tire wearing that one whereas regular backpacks he would have been complaining after a few hours of walking. For us it was well worth the $80.

DH has a large Targus laptop backpack that he loves!

You can order them at www.targus.com They seem to range from $20 - $80+

I got mine at LL Bean about 8-9 years ago. It still looks brand new. They dont have the same style anymore but they do have several computer packs to choose from.

I have a targus that is from Staples and it works realy well and has lots of compartments. It was $50.

one of the best purchases I've ever made - my laptop backpack...by Cal Pak. I love the fact that no one really knows I've got my laptop in it.
I purchased one at Ross well over a year ago - it was only $13-15. from time to time...I still see them at my local Ross. I've often thought of buying another...to put aside till this one wears out. good luck

I bought a Swiss Army Back Pack from Staples about a month ago and love it. Lots of compartments, really comfortable. Highly recommend it.

I bought one from Dell when I got my Inspiron. Very lightweight and lots of storage space.
