Would like to keep this in tech talk to see what you nerds are using.

I have to carry a dell latitude and would like something to fit in it. 14".

i really like it but wish i went with the slightly larger weekender version for travelling:

Mine only has 1 strap, but it is a messenger bag. Timbuk2 command - small bag for a macbook pro (barely fits).

just seems like occasionally you'd want to be able to go completely hands-free, which doesn't seem possible with a 1 strap.

2 straps are more comfortable, especially if you have to carry more weight than normal or carry it for a long time

And this is just a personal preference, but I think 1 strap looks a bit dorky

I use this and highly recommend - both as a camera bag and a laptop bag

For me, the pluses of my 1-strap pack are the limited bulk and the fact that I can get into it without taking it off.

Why wouldn't it be possible? You wear it cross shoulder and go.

This is true. If you're carrying a lot of weight in a 1-strap pack, you're doing in wrong. But, they great if want you want to carry doesn't weight a bunch.

cross shoulder, ie across your chest? i guess i always assume backpacks go on your back.

is there something that clips around your midsection? just going off the pictures in the link in the OP so not sure the logistics

I'm pro-1-strap backpacks. I'm just very anti-tactical backpack for your tech (techtical?). You're not going into the woods or battle with your laptop, so...why the camo or molle straps? I don't get it.

I'm not into the camo either. My pack is gray. The molle straps are useful and the tacticool stuff usually has a more useful assortment of pockets.
