I've got giant 17-inch laptop (for gaming and the programming classes I'm taking) and I cannot find anything that is not giant black nylon and looks like a guy's bag. Is there any hope for me? Or do cute, non-guy bags exist for laptops as big as mine?

I know the feeling! Check out acmemade.com; some of the bags can get pricey, but they are cute! Do not get the designer slim though, no room to put anything in it except the laptop - even the power cord is hard to fit. The Slim Cargo is nice, though. I am hoping the tote will come in a 17" size soon...

I needed a laptop bag on wheels for travel, and got the McKlein W Series Willowbrook Leather Detachable Wheeled Ladies Case in Aqua Blue. It's not super stylish, but the colour is wonderful and the fact that's its detachable from the wheels, a lifesaver!

Ooooh, I love that you can detach the bag from the wheels! My laptop bag is on wheels, but not detachable. The wheels are super handy in the airport, but I have to walk up a long flight of stairs to get to my office, so the wheels are a pain then. I may have to check into this one!

There is a smaller version of the McKlein bag, if you don't have a 17 inch laptop. I have 2 15 inch laptops that I needed to fit in the bag (they do) and the original poster's request was for one that fit a 17 inch laptop.

Hi! I had the same problem a year ago! I have a massive 17 incher from Toshiba.

I found the Hayden Harnett Ibiza flight tote and got it in Smoke Blue. It has a pad inside for a laptop, and a leather snap tab to hold it against the pad. What i realllllly love about this laptop bag is that it serves many functions. It's my go-to carry-on when I travel (with or without laptop) and it takes a major beating. It also doesn't look like a laptop bag at all.

It's at LunaBoston in a few colors: http://www.lunaboston.com/ProductInfo/Hayden-Harnett/17719.aspx
[don't forget 20% off with code = grechen]

more colors at HH are available here:

HH also has a free shipping and % off deal (20 i think?) going on now through Mother's Day (see deals and steals for info).

Coach was actually the first place I looked, as we have a Coach bag for our older, 15-inch laptop. But they don't seem to have anything big enough for this monster of a computer.

I also really like the HH bags, but I think they are too flimsy- I need something that will protect it if I drop it (i'm a giant klutz).

Thanks for the suggestions, all- I am digging through all the sites now!
