Sometimes you need to carry a laptop that's a little bigger than a 13-inch or ultraportable. That's when a more traditional briefcase-shaped bag is handy, as in this example from the Saddleback Leather Company. The larger of this company's two laptop-friendly briefcase styles
(each of which comes in a couple of sizes) easily fits two midsize laptops, with AC adapters and accessories. The case is divided into two equal-size compartments, and a long shoulder strap can be wound through a metal ring to create backpack straps.
