Dude where's my Dell... (I'm sorry about this lame title)

Recommendations on a professional but GQ-esque laptop bag for a Dell Latitude E6510.

I'm traveling (flying) a good bit and need a laptop bag that holds a Dell Latitude E6510, a Moleskine, and a Kindle and is painless at airport security.

I need a good, trustworthy, new bag... however, I work with nonprofits (also, I'm not flashy myself) so I need to ensure that it's not overly flashy.

No budget.

Black Timbuk2. Can be used worth with a suit or jeans. Mine is five years old and still looks brand new, despite daily use.

Timbuk2 Commute, in black. A number of places carry them. (Mine is from R.E.I.) It'll handle a MacBook Pro (snugly), is well padded; has good interior space; a snug space in the back for folders, articles, and such; and has extra pockets for power bricks, and small cameras. In black, it looks professional. It'll fit sideways under most airline seats.

Jack Spade's briefcases. The styling is all very GQ-minimalist but with a utilitarian design theme. Not cheap but I think it's worth the money with excellent construction and a lifetime repair service. I've had the waxwear computer case for over 5 years and the nice things with these is that age in a very deliberate way as well.

The computer file cases (which I have) specifically zip open on all three sides so it's easy to just open up the whole thing for security screenings.
