If you're in the market for a new backpack, there's a decent deal on the Targus Curve Backpack over on Dell Canada's online store. The Targus Curve Backpack was $69.99 and it's down by $50, to only $19.99, with free shipping too.
It's quite plain, there are no visible bells and whistles on the outside, so a good backpack for the non so ostentatious amongst us. But when you open it up, there are pouches and pockets galore - enough room to store many bits and bobs!
The description states that this backpack will fit laptops of up to 16" screen sizes - that covers most normal lappies.
While this is technically a laptop backpack, you could even make use of it on an everyday basis, you don't have to put a computer in it. Would make a good day pack too, as it's got pouches for water bottles, business card holders, key clips and more.
