Bag for DSLR with grip and 70-200 f2.8 attached + extra lenses?

I'm looking for a messenger style shoulder bag that will let me comfortably carry a DSLR with a battery grip, a 70-200 mm f2.8 lens attached, two or three 24-70 sized lenses, a flash or two, and enough pockets to organize other accessories like extra batteries, memory cards, cleaning equipment etc. And it would be a plus to have a laptop sleeve or pocket large enough to occasionally carry a 13" laptop, but it's not a must. I have looked at the Thinktank Retrospective 20, and the Lowepro Pro Messenger 180 AW which both have room for the gear but not a laptop. The Retrospective is the most appealing so far, but I would like suggestions for other bags that could be worth considering, especially if they can fit a laptop. Any ideas?
