    Just get a normal laptop bag and carry a nice handbag for your other stuff too. You could always make it prettier looking. I wouldn't trust any of my bags not to bash my laptop around, and if it's obviously a laptop bag then you're completely excused from it not being beautiful.

    I just have a plain black laptop bag. Im not really fussed about it looking nice or pretty though.
    If I was going to jazz it up id probably buy a couple of badge/broach type things for it.

    My laptop (DSA) came with a laptop bag that has space for books aswell so it great for taking it to uni. Places like PC World sell laptop bags.

    Oooh red laptop bag is pretty, I think that the only fault is that it makes it mroe of a target for thieves - non?

    But I need a nice squishy laptop bag for Uni as I'm scared about moving it from Liverpool to Durham and it breaking/smashing/dying/all the above in transit

    EDIT: Damn - they're expensive.

    I've got a really nice rucksack laptop bag. I do look like a bit of a geek wearing it around, but it's more comfortable than a one strap messenger bag style one tugging at your shoulder - also my Dad told me to get it because it looks less like you're carriyng around a laptop and therefore less likely to get mugged when I get the train or something.

    My mum got me an A&F bag yonks ago (kinda like this) that i use for my laptop, can also shove a folder and some books in it and isn't too heavy!!

    For travelling though, i've got a normal black one that keeps everything safe - something like this! For a pretty one, i really want one of these 15" though...

    Get a sleeve and then put it in a nice, chunky handbag.

    Or just get a regular laptop bag/rucksack and don't worry about looking sexy.

    Surely Google will find you summut if you input "laptop bag 17inch" or something?

    My Macbook (gee I love saying that! VV proud of my Mac) came with a padded sleeve sort thing. I put it inside my massive flowery backpack and carry it around like that. No scratches, no sore shoulders from messenger bags!

    Either put the laptop in a padded sleeve and then into a normal bag, or get a special laptop bag. Make sure that the bag doesn't scream "Look! I'm carrying a laptop!", unless you want to risk getting it stolen.
    If you're going to use a normal bag, then make sure that it's comfortable enough to carry, considering the weight of the laptop.
