Need bag for D70 + Laptop + 70-200 for Airline Travel - CompuTrekker?
Feb 26, 2005

I travel a lot with my job, and need to get a new bag that will accomodate my new 70-200VR. I've currently got a Dell C840 laptop (fairly large and heavy) and ideally I would like a bag that can accomodate my camera and laptop. Also, it would ideally fit under a seat on the plane if necessary (full flights/small planes). I frequently either find myself having to leave the camera at home or bring just the D70 and one lens in a small bag inside my carryon.

I am looking at the following Lowepros, but haven't had the chance to see them in person yet to evaluate their size:
CompuTrekker AW
CompuTrekker Plus AW

As a second choice, getting a non-laptop bag is an alternative - but then I would have to check my clothes bag - and I would have an issue in those rare circumstances they force you to check one of your two items.

Anyone fly a lot and have any suggestions/helpfull info on bags?
