Osprey's Quasar carries the essentials for a full day outdoors or all the textbooks necessary for an upper level Astronomy class. The mesh shoulder harness and back panel provide comfort, even when the pack is fully loaded with gear, books or heavy electronics. A removable webbing hip belt adds extra stability for heavier loads and vanishes when you're traveling light. Inside the panel-access main compartment, you'll find laptop and tablet sleeves to protect your devices. Storage options include side and front stretch mesh pockets and a zippered front panel pocket and there's also an upper slash pocket to corral your sunglasses and other small items. A front panel bungee cord adds compression and extra storage options. If your adventures keep you out past dark, clip a blinker light to the pack's rear attachment point for added nocturnal visibility.

I have way too many bags. Expensive ones, cheap ones, leather, canvas, on and on. THIS is by far the absolute best.
I've got an Osprey duffle that I've had for years and can't imagine why I didn't think of them first for a laptop backpack.
Hands down the best laptop backpack/ bag I've had.
Three weeks ago, I accidentally dropped my Kelty Redstart 28 backpack in a puddle of pee (yes, really) and left it there all day. Well the pee dried and absorbed into the pack. Needless to say, it smelled terrible. My first inclination was to just wash it, but then I started to think about it and to evaluate the bag... Maybe a higher power was telling me that it was time for me to buy a new bag. So I first looked at Kelty’s current offerings, and then some Osprey offerings (my backpacking pack is an Osprey Exos, so I like that brand, too). I’m sure there are a million other brands out there, but I have used those two and trust them. And as I thought about it more, I realized there were several things about the Redstart that annoyed me. Although it is a fantastic bag that has served me well, there were some issues.
1. The way the bag opens. The two buckles that hold the exterior quick-access panel are placed in the most...
Let me start by saying I love Osprey. I own 3 of their packs, the Talon, the Stratos, and the Atmos AG. For backpacking there is no comparison (maybe ULA =D ). Osprey has the best warranty around. No question. The Atmos AG is hands down the most comfortable pack I've ever worn, the Stratos is crazy lightweight full frame for spring/summer trips and I use my Talon 22 all the time on my bicycle.
I bought this bag, tried it out for a couple of days, and it is a nice bag. Has just the right number of compartments you could want. Has a great laptop compartment. It is a well thought out bag.
The problem is the durability. It is made of the same material as my backpacking packs. While that is awesome to keep weight down, it just isn't what I was looking for in a day to day pack. Really it is my bad, and I'll accept it for not buying the correct bag. I wanted something a bit more durable. I'm sorry to say, I ended up returning. Awhile later I found a deal on Goruck and...
