A paper agenda/weekly planner for the terrifically picky...

I've decided to switch from Google Calendar, which I'm terrible at keeping updated, to a bound paper agenda/planner. I'm not really finding anything that looks great though, so I'm hoping that someone here can recommend a great one.

I really like the look of the New Yorker Desk Diary, but it's like 40 bucks and I'm unsure what the inside is like. It's also kind of large to be toted around daily.
It seems like a lot of the agendas are marketed at middle-aged suburban women, which I am not. I don't need fun stickers or whimsical prints or inspirational quotations. I want something aesthetically pleasing, minimalist, with a calendar for each month and plenty of room for writing daily tasks. I like the two-page week layout. I've looked at the Moleskine planner but am looking for other options in case there's something better out there. It would be good if the planner is big enough to be functional - I hate the "pocket planner" size - but small enough to fit unobtrusively into my bag.
I work in a laboratory and would like to be able to keep track of the start and end dates of experiments, weekly meetings, and daily "maintenance" type tasks.
