    I'm getting a laptop at xmas and I've been looking at bags that I could take it to college in. I'm looking for a normal bag, not a laptop bag, as I don't want it to look like I have one... like 'HEY THIEF, laptop's right in here '.

    Does anyone know where I can find a nice roomy bag, preferabley with a shoulder strap? I want it to be quite 'fashionable'. At the moment I've seen this one from Urban Outfitters.

    The laptop is only small, 13", but it's always nice to have room for my bag junk.

    Why do you need to take your laptop to college? Surely you have computer labs? Have a look in Topshop and similar stores.

    We have a mac suite in our building, but there's only 8 of them so they're nearly always being used. It's just much easier to take my own and work on my desk.
    Tried Topshop, DP, River Island and all them but thanks anyway.

    Paperchase are actually selling really nice laptop bags, but you wouldn't think they were for laptops at a glance.
    like this one

    it's only £12.75, but the ones I saw had different patterns/colours a bit like the patterns on these

    think there was one more black in colour...
    The red one's a bit bright.
    They look like satchels rather than laptop bags...

    I bought a Golla bag from PC World for uni, you can't really tell it's a laptop bag.

    This is the one I have:

    This is the selection on play:

    Mine has a padded area for my laptop, another section for papers and books, then two zip compartments at the front.

    They are shoulder strap ones with a really easy adjustable strap.

    Would say by the way that you really should buy a bag made for carrying a laptop - will get very easily damaged otherwise.

    I bought a sleeve for it so it should be alright.
