I got a tumi briefcase.  It was the only one where the computer part did not expand, but the other side did.  I like it a lot.  It gets tons of use and pretty much still looks new.  That said, I do all of my work at school, or bring at most one or two books home at a time.  It can get heavy, but my back seems to be doing ok, so eh.

I guess they call it their "Alpha" line now.  It's pretty classic.

$350?  Really??  Do you know how much __________ thats is?

About $350 I think.  :D

You'll have it forever?
Let me show you Derelicte. It is a fashion, a way of life inspired by the very homeless, the vagrants, the crack whores that make this wonderful city so unique.

Fair enough.  If it lasts forever I guess I could see it working...I don't consider myself particularly cheap/frugal but that price just jumped out at me for some reason...

I think I'd rather buy a cheaper bag and use the excess funds on clothes or cheeseburgers or something...maybe Guitar Hero downloads...

I'm still having trouble coming up with a ten-letter word which means money (your blank.)

I have a leather Coach laptop bag, and I just carry my books under my arm.

But we have lockers, so that makes it easy.

Herpes lasts forever but I'm not paying $350 bucks for it
*In clinical studies, Matthies was well tolerated, but women who are pregnant, nursing or might become pregnant should not take or handle Matthies due to a rare, but serious side effect called him having to make child support payments.

What's the difference between herpes and true love?
Herpes lasts forever.

If you gave a diamond herpes, would it last until the next universe?

My blank was a general fill-in to use at one's own discretion...

350?  Do you know how many Gotham City Pizzas that is?
350?  Do you know how many Ben Davis slacks that is?
350?  Do you know how many Brooks Brothers shirts that is?

I guess it wasn't executed as smoothly as I would have liked.  Sorry about that.  The point is that $350 seems like a lot of dough to spend on a bag.  But we've already concluded that its going to last a long time.  And that's a-ok with me...
