Recommendations for ~200US Leather Locking Attache

Hello All:

New to the forum, looking for some advice. Young professional (24yr/o, software engineer) slowly working on updating my style. Recently invested in a netbook and smartphone. Carrying them to and from work everyday on my person has been an exercise in futility. My style tends toward the more conservative and as such I'm looking for an attache to match.

So to recap on what I'm looking for:

- Conservative, classically styled attache case
- Can carry a netbook
- Can carry a smartphone
- Maybe a few pens and loose leaf
- Should have locking mechanism
- Prefer brown leathers
- Looking for an entry level item for around $200 new or used; haven't been working long enough to warrant anything more expensive.

Appreciate all recommendations!
