Last year I picked up a national geographic laptop/camera bag for the same reason. I will say that the name brand bumped up the price a lot.. and the ergonomics are not great. But! It is a great looking bag with lots of room and pockets, and it gets the job done. Of course, now I have more stuff, so I carry a Swiss army laptop back pack to carry up to 2 laptops, the ntl geo camera bag for dslr, and a manfrotto messenger bag for camcorder. Looking back on it, I think the extra money and loss of room for a laptop bag was a waste. You add the word laptop to a camera bag and it taks on $100 min, and takes away space that you could have used for field gadgets..
