For me, on the contrary, using both shoulder straps would be a challenge, so, a sling looks like a prudent choice. Monogrammable too

yeah, i've seen the sling, but call me a traditionalist, because I like to use both shoulders to carry my stuff (I'm one of those nerdy "losers" back in high school that doesn't carry the backpack with just one shoulder ). EB is pretty nice. I'm quite impressed by their backpack/messenger bag. \$30 for a backpack convertible to messenger bag. expandable too.

which model you are referring to?

IMHO, on any public transport system one should take down one's backpack and hold it in hands. Always. No matter the size. Two reasons:
- security (you cannot see, what's happening behind you);
- you will always be bumping people with you backpack on your back in a crowd, however small it is (unless it's completely flat).

Just my 2 cents.

IMNSHO (not so humble). Seriously, you need to carry your bag in front of you like helg said. Even if you don't actually hit someone you are swinging this big thing around nearly hitting them. They spend their time ducking and weaving. Plus this way you take up less room. Think about it, in a crowded subway you will always leave more room in front of you than behind you. If your bag is on your back, in addition to being a theft target, you take up double the space!

Final point:
Don't be the D-bag with the Book bag

I went to Circuit City and found this great laptop bag. I tore apart their laptop bag section for about an hour.

http://www.circuitcity.com/ssm/Kenneth- ... tDetail.do

The size is perfect, and it seems to have endless space. I am able to fit a few books, a big binder, my laptop, an AC bundle, portable mouse, iPod, Blackberry, pens, a calculator, and even a bottle of water; plus all of the other small essentials. The price is relatively low, too. I won't be taking up too much space on the subway with this thing.

nice bag! I was debating one of those, then I realized it definitely screams "I have a laptop" if you're traveling a bit or in a not-so-good neighborhood. So I opted for a less obvious backpack where they won't know if I have a laptop in it or not.

I have this one, it's expensive but it's also the best bag I ever had, hands down:

I also love this one, from Zegari

It's funny how Italians should be the kings of style yet I buy most of my accessories from the US

DO NOT BUY THIS ONE! After giving it some test runs in the city, it is reall not that big. Good for a few files, one book, and a laptop. I already bought a new one at the Columbia book store, a I am much happier with this one. Now if Circuit City will only take this back...

Manhattan Portage laptop bags are the bomb. And you can fit the second sleeve cover for your laptop in, to give better protection. It takes a bit of work and stretching, but it gets there in the end.

They have room for a lot of stuff (files I never try, but a lot of books and notepads, powerpacks, pens and the HP - easy).
