The cheaper the better of course but I could go to $300+ if I felt it was worth it.
I like these (but they're too expensive or unavailable):

Ann D...~$900, which is much more than I'd like to spend.
TOJ. Shame I didn't get one when I could.
Eastpak. Not available in the U.S. AFAIK. I would get a proxy but I'm also concerned that it would be too small.
Henson. Sold out on the one webstore that sells it.
Most of these are pricier examples but it doesn't really need to be all that nice. Something like the Eastpak one would work (but bigger).
I have that Eastpak in suede. I find the size perfect.
It just fits my 15" macbook pro and like three other books although it probably isn't built to hold that much weight.
Got it for sub 200$ on yoox EU. Very satisfied.
Damir Doma also has a great looking backpack this season. Pricey but not as much as the Ann D I think
