So I finally did it this past weekend at Costco. After months of random shut downs, software crashes and slow loading times I finally laid to rest my Pink Dell laptop. I’m sad to say good bye to my lovely pink machine but it was time to move on.
Which means two things. One, I will no longer be ranting and raving about my slow undependable machine. Two, it’s time for this tech mom to go laptop bag shopping. I wound up with a 17” HP which ironically doesn’t fit into my backpack very well (can you tell how broken up I am about it?) so I need to start looking for a suitable stylish laptop bag and it needs to compliment my ever so stylish Lola Epiphanie Camera Bag.
Here are some great stylish and functional bags I found while browsing.
1. Sherpani Tosca Laptop Backpack
The Tosca laptop backpack from Sherpani is ideal for those that need to bring work or school with you at all times. The laptop bag protects the computer in one padded zipper pouch while the rest of your files, pens, cell phone, and possibly lunch fit nicely in the other pouch. Available in some really great colors and designed to fit a 17”
Available at Kolobags.com or Amazon.com for $99
2. Nokhoo Deloverly Laptop Backpack
One of my favorites. I love the screen print, hand embroidery and beading on a textured cotton surface, the DeLoverly laptop backpack will surely turn heads. Featuring quality metal hardware, a wooden toggle, heavy interior padding, plenty of zippered pockets and an adjustable phone pocket on the strap-who knew such a pretty bag could be so smart? Get it in red.

3. Ice Red 17″ Shine Glossy Laptop Bag
Ice Red’s spectacular women’s laptop bag, Shine, is sleek and stylish with a distinct look. With a glossy vinyl cover, this 17″ laptop bag has a look that is both classic and modern.

4. The Maddie Powers Hipster
Now this one doesn’t fit my new latop but it was so cute I wanted to share it anyway. The Maddie Powers Hipster is just right for you when your laptop and a few accessories are all you need for the day. The front of this unique bag features an original vintage magazine from the 40’s and 50’s era. Inside is a matching removable neoprene sleeve that adds extra laptop protection, while offering the flexibility to use it as it’s own carrying case!

5. Laurex – 17″ Laptop Backpack – Red Blossom
I love, love love this one. This will probably be my bag. It will fit my 17 inch easily. I love the feminine color design and harmonized light color lining. No hassle round buckle flap closure, comfort padded shoulder straps and back panel with a handle on the top for picking up the bag. Lots of compartments and pockets for organizing the odds and ends and plenty of space for some extra non-laptop stuff. There is a hidden flap in the pocket.
