    GIGANTIC Laptop bag advice needed...

    I need a big laptop bag. Something like the Bag of Holding from Thinkgeek, except they are out of stock with no word on when it will be available.

    I need a laptop bag that can hold:
    -- One extremely large Alienware 17"+ non-widescreen (very wide and tall) laptop (and thick)
    -- One small Toshiba 12.x" tablet
    -- One widescreen 15.x" Dell laptop
    -- The power cords for all 3 computers which takes an average laptop bag's laptop compartment by themselves
    -- Misc cords and office accessories in various other pouches such as a graphing calculator, pens/pencils, a few flash drives, an inverter, cell phone charger, that sort of thing
    -- One or two small but rigid compartments for documents/magazines

    Overall size of this I do not care. Quality is important. Price is not important. So does anyone have suggestions?

    I dont think it will fit through the corridors. But the size is perfect other than that.

    Not completely. It is for the office, so I would prefer something more "professional" looking, but the main reason is that I have yet to find a suitable backpack.

    I want all three laptops to be isolated in their own areas, then at least one more area for everything else.

    The alienware is a beast. It is 1.5" thick, 15.65" wide, and 11.75" deep... Too big for any backpack I have tried. I have only seen it fit in one laptop bag, and to do so meant sacrificing being able to zip the other section up because it was literally stretching the fabric over it like a fat man in a shirt made for a 10 year old. Not only did it look stupid, but it meant only one laptop with no protection whatsoever since the top of the bag was glued to the laptop itself with no cushioning.

    The 15" Dell, is the same width, but not as deep or thick (but it does have the extended battery jutting out the back which is unfortunate... Toshiba's Slice battery rules all and has spoiled me)

    The Toshiba fits in anything and could be used as a frisbee it is so light and compact...

    I don't think it will worry about the corridor walls

    That would fit 2 laptops and stuff, OR 3 laptops and no stuff... Looks high quality which is nice.

    I guess in decending order of preference it would be messenger bag style, then briefcase, then roll-luggage, backpack, and finally Hummer H1...

    I think you can get 3 laptops and stuff in both, well the second one for sure.

    Two laptops should fit in the man compartment and the smaller one in the zipped pocket, and the front zipped has the stuff.

    Amazing! It is rare I love ALL answers in a thread.
    Some make me feel so stupid - so obvious in retrospect that corridors would NOT be a problem.

    My 2-bit is that laptop backs are a natural target for those too lazy to get welfare.
    Hence my reply seconding backpacks.

    My wiser reply is "any of the above except a laptop bag".


    Securely yours (in all seriousness of coarse),
