Backpack/Messenger suggestions?

Anyone have some good suggestions for a backpack?
Would need to be $150 or less preferably less than $100, and fit a 15inch macbook and 2-3 textbooks.

Picked up a Chrome Citizen bag last year for school. I've absolutely loved it so far. Sturdy, very waterproof, and more comfortable than any backpack I've worn. They're near the top end of your price range but you could also check out Timbuk2 messenger bags, I have heard good things about them too

North Face for backpacks. Mine has held up well after 4 years.

i have a chrome one, yes it's expensive, but to be very honest, you get really what you pay for.
Arguing on the internet is like running in the SPECIAL OLYMPICS.

Even if you win, you're still retarded.

Look into Osprey backpacks. They make very nice bags. I took one backpacking around Asia for three months still looks brand new.

+1 for TNF backpacks. I never had one but I worked at a store that sold several higher-end models and they were made of very nice material and was definitely a solid backpack.
