Im looking for a good bookbag for my 14' iBook. If you have pics of yours or website picks that would be great.

I'd avoid laptop bags purely because they stand out more and are therefore more likely to get stolen. Thieves specifically look for Targus, Kensington, and Samsonite laptop bags.
I take the "starving student" approach to carrying my laptop. Find a spare pillowcase or two, put your laptop in it, and put it in an old, ugly backpack (taking special care not to put your lunch or drinks in it as well...)
Just my two cents.

Yes, make one out of ply-board and stick on leopard skin fur. That would be fantastic, just imagine the look of envy on peoples faces, priceless.
The bags in the shops are all pritty much the same, i got a targus bag with my ibook 14" and it does the job.

i got the brenthaven apple case from my local apple store. Its a great backpack (they also carry shoulder bags), it has lifetime warranty, good protection for the laptop (dropped it enough with my ibook in it to know that). Anyway i would suggest it, do realize like people have said it will be more prone to being stolen. I just remedy that by never letting go of it. :p

I have a Tucano Second Skin case for my 12" iBook. Its great because it protects my iBook whilst letting me put it into my backpack, eliminating the need for a big, bulky laptop bag that draws attention.
Heres the same case but for your 14" iBook:
Hope this helps,

As Ryanstech said, timbuk2.com. I have the same computer as you and I love my bag. I don't always carry my laptop with me, but it's good for that, or books, or both.
I got mine from the mac store, it came recommended to me from one of the workers. Mine's blue and looks better then some of the ones that seem to be on the website.

I use the Tuscano Second Skin for my iBook 12". I use a kinda shoulder bag for carrying it about it. You still have to be careful with it cause it's not thick enough to fully protect it if you were to drop it, but it stops it from getting any scratches when you carry it about places.
