Please Help!
I have not seen the backpack I need for college/work anywhere on this Forum>or on Google.

I need a regular looking backpack like targus or jansport style that will protect my 17in macbook & have IPOD integration somewhere at the top of the bag. So, I can walk and have my ipod inside my backpack.

any assistance with my urgent matter would be awesome.

ive got this backpack, and i really like it a lot:

It has everything you need, a lot of storage space, and a good brand.

Here's mine:

I got it in the grey/white/green. I'm pretty sure it would fit a 17". I have a 15" but I also have an Incase sleeve for it that adds a little bit of size to it and it fits in the sleeve perfectly. It also has an iPod holder and a phone holder in the front compartment. It's perfect for my needs.

I have the exact same Targus backpack that PunkRockTuba mentioned and it works great. I highly recommend it!

i have a incase ripstop case that can be found on the apple store website:

its a cool bag because it well doesnt look like an overbearing backpack and when it is full it doesnt look like its gonna swallow you up or bear down on you. AND it has tons of room....
