Pretty Laptop Backpack

I need a new laptop bag .....because I'm not sure how long my current backpack could last me. Its breaking up..........totally breaking up.......probably due to my overly abusing it. sorry bag....

Being in the corporate world having product presentations and demo as my work portfolio, it is inevitable to carry my laptop everywhere I go on a daily basis.
However, not being a techie means I do not have the license to dress casual. I have to dress-up, fully made-up, that means with my kiss-ass 3 inch pumps, power suits and sometimes sexy mini's. hey.......we've got to flaunt it like it or not because if you dont have boobs.....clients most likely wont want to meet up with you. FACT.

With that, I am very very picky when comes to choosing the PERFECT laptop bag. The reason being very simple. The typical slingbag that laptops come in? Its a pain to carry. Especially when sometimes your customer's location isnt that all easily accessible. After carrying them the whole day, my right arm feels like its going to fall off. On top of that, dont forget that as a women, there is our mandatory handbag for our handphones, purse, mini-make-up bag, sweets, my pda, some assam boi, pens, namecard holder, mentos, more pens, spare earrings.......ok u get the drift....

IT is NOT easy to balance oneself with a heavy laptop slung over a shoulder, carry a handbag on the other hand, trying not to step on unlevel grounds, potholes.....etc...
Once I was carrying too many things and I just swayed from left to right to left like your grandfather's clock going tick tock like that to eventually land on my big fat ass while walking down the steps. TRUE STORY.

Therefore, since then I've decided to use a backpack instead which I find is much much better because I get to balance the weight on both my shoulders, and I have free hands to hold my handbag. Plus, the blardee compaq doesnt seem like it weighs 10KG.

The bagpack that I got looked pretty corporate and professional. Which is why I like it.
However, to find a replacement is such a difficult tasks!! ALL laptop backpacks in Malaysia look like a hiker's bag!
Sporty and macho looking.......
some look like college boy's bag.....
sigh.....
I totally cannot be using those bags what with my powersuits and all!! I will look totally weird. yucks...

So....I'm still searching for the right bag...
These are some I've found from the Internet which I hope that someone will eventually bring them into Malaysia. (minus 50% off the price tag....hehe).




Being in a little Christmassy mood.....I tot the red one looks stunning.....
The Laptopshop has quite a variety and lovely looking ones too...although I tot the pricetag was a little rediculous.

Then I found this site. Metrobag.
Wow.....I think this must be the "it" bag for me!!! I'm really contemplating to customize mine!!
Check out the website.....its so cool, you can choose the type of skin you like for your bag.....
I kinda like this pink tweed ones. Very professional looking and fashionable too!!

Heh... Its a horrible world out here where they think Laptops are still carried by serious corporate men in suits and not fashionable made up power suited corporate women! I haven't checked out Isetan since my last post on laptop bags but have you taken a look there?

The floral one is very pretty, I like. But the tweed is probably more suitable for work, more professional. Haven't seen any locally, or maybe I haven't been looking.

There's an entire range of funky Laptop-Notebook bags by Crumpler.

The goodie news is Online Shopping is now here, and ships every day to Malaysia, Asia, and Worldwide.

In addition, there's hybrid designs to it, for example:
(i) Laptop-Sling-messenger bag
(ii) iPad-Camera bag
(iii) Notebook-Photocamera backpacks
(iv) Plain Sleeve cover, etc.

It's the new look on the high street, and doesn't scream any corporate or "pls rob me of my notebook".
