Default Laptop Backpack

Anyone have recommendations for a good backpack with a laptop compartment?
I'm looking for something that doesn't look like a laptop bag so I'm not a target for thieves.

Not too sure what you are looking for otherwise, but I have the Oakley Icon 2.0 backup and love it. Solid bag with plenty of room.

Icon 2.0 -> Oakley ICON BACKPACK 2.0 - Purchase Oakley bags and backpacks from the online Oakley store | Canada
Icon 3.0 -> Amazon.com: Oakley Icon Pack 3.0: Sports & Outdoors

I think it would help us help you if you could provide the size of the laptop or model. =P
Otherwise we could be suggesting bags that won't fit your gear.

I got a great laptop backpack at Costco. I think it's swissgear and holds up to a 17" and was only $39 if I remember right

You could try out one of the monoprice ones.

For only $18.05 each when QTY 50+ purchased - 15-inch Carbon Lite Laptop Backpack | Laptop Bags and Cases

Haven't tried it personally, but I've ordered several things from them and haven't been disappointed yet.

LoL. Fair enough. My Oakley Icon 2 was a giveaway from an AMD event :P

I would definitely look at Costco for the Swiss bag they usually carry as it is a decent value.
