College is almost back and is time for you to get yourself a new backpack (if the old one isn’t good enough). Many students are using laptops at their classes and one thing that anyone sooner or later notice is that they are a pain in the butt to carry around. A good backpack with additional laptop compartment will solve this problem.
If you have 15″ widescreen or 17″ laptop, you may consider buying 17″ laptop backpack. This kind of backpack is already popular with outdoor enthusiasts because it allows them to carry their laptops, cd’s, papers, adopters and everything else that they might need on the move. Ok, let’s see what is out there.
I can’t say that there are new 17″ laptop backpack trends out there. When I went over bestselling backpacks I saw the same backpacks that were popular few month ago. The reason is quite simple. Most of this backpacks are high-quality backpacks that are built to last and at the same time, they have an attractive yet timeless design.
Thousands of satisfied buyer are very happy with their backpacks and the word got out, that’s why they are still best selling 17″ notebook backpacks.

Belkin F8N078-SGF-DL 17″ Laptop Backpack
What I like about this laptop backpack, is his clean design. But is not just good looking, It’s made out of durable water resistant rip-stop material that will protect your laptop from external influences.
But protection doesn’t stop there. The laptop compartment is made out of scratch-free lining material that will protect your laptop from scratches.
The backpack is big enough for laptop and accessories. The laptop compartment is 13″ x 16″ x 2″ which is big enough for most 17″ laptops. But the whole backpack measures 4.7″ x 13.8″ x 19.7″ and weighs 1.8 pounds.
