    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.

    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.

    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.
