    I need a new bag for university... and I'd also like to be able to use it other times. I usually take my laptop (Macbook pro 13"), and a few small reading books...

    My options are these

    http://www.hurleys.co.uk/womens-c85/...ote-bag-p88829

    http://www.houseoffraser.co.uk/Ted+B...efault,pd.html - similar to above one, just slightly different material

    Please help, thanks

    Personally, I had a LV messenger bag when I was at uni. Not only was it big enough for everything (including a 15" MBP), but it also looked the part.

    You can't say the same about the bags you've chosen.

    I agree, im at uni now and i usually have a big bag which fits my laptop, books and lunch. Large tote bags, aren't as large as you think.

    I alternate between my tote and large bag depending on what i am taking that day.

    I would consider looking for either a messenger or a light backpack

    OP, for that price range, it's really not worth it. I mean, even Accessorise or Zara has nicer bags than that! This Rebecca Minkoff is far stylisher and should fit your mac (plus you should have something structured- it'll last longer). Or get a Kanken backpack, they're really cute.

    If you chose the brown monogram ones, then how unbearably tacky. Unless... you're talking about the Alma line?

    Lol! I missed the fact that you're a guy
    Yeah, they're subtle enough. Nice choice!

    The first two are nicer but look a bit small, however I don't like the third bag. I think the tote style bags from ted baker are nicer such as http://www.tedbaker.com/uk/Womens/Ac...21162-00-BLACK
