I saw on here that a couple of people were not quite happy with their current backpack, so I decided to let you all in on my discovery! Before I came to college, about 3 years ago, I bought an older model of this backpack and have never regretted it. It has a laptop pocket and it's really well padded. I was used to a backpack wearing out every year or so, but I'm still using this bag and it has no sign of wear. Anyway, here's a link to it on Buy.com if you wanna check it out, but I think they sell them at Best Buy and Office Depot too.
