Most of the students in my class have rolling back packs. I bought mine from ebags.com. The brand is High Sierra. My laptop goes to class with me, and they have a way to type in the model of laptop and let you know which backpacks it will fit in.
I bought mine at eBags.com too. Every now and then they have a free shipping deal if you buy $75 or more or they will do other specials.
I bought a large Jansport bag and it is ok. I got the larger of the three they carried at the time and it was about $120. I was back and forth between that one and a Samsonite I saw. I needed (or thought I did anyway) a bag that had the backpack straps too because our elevator is out all the time at school. I used 'em maybe 3 times all year.
I did quit lugging so many books to class last semester because I found that I never cracked the books open. I just carried my laptop and cords and printouts I needed for that day and a few other little things.
My friend went to Mori Luggage in the mall and found a great rolling bag on clearance for about $40. If I had seen that one when I was looking I would have bought it! That thing has a pocket for everything and is a really great bag. Overall, I was very pleased with my Jansport bag. The wheels are sturdy and so is the handle and it was easy to lug around when I did use it.
