Plain backpack to carry MacBook

Need small-as-possible, simple backpack that will fit a MacBook. I love my little Eastpak bag (like this one) but it's not quite big enough. I want something that is super-plain in dark colours that is just big enough. It doesn't have to be padded or have a special laptop slot.

I use a camelback I bought from REI. Weird, I know. But it fits, is padded, and is tiny.

I've used an L.L. Bean Original Book Pack essentially my entire life. It's pretty much as plain as it comes, really, the very definition of a generic backpack. And the value is insane; $24 for a solid backpack is not bad as it is, but it comes with a lifetime guarantee. I used to work there, and they hold up their end of the bargain--I had to re-monogram 15-year-old backpacks. They actually will fix it if it breaks, ever. Pretty sure my macbook fits in mine.

I use a Patagonia lightwire backpack. It's not tiny, but it's slimmer than many backpacks. It has a built-in padded laptop sleeve. It's very sleek and comfortable, I really like it. Patagonia also makes a smaller backpack called the Pocketwire that might fit the smallest MacBook.

I have been considering purchasing the Sumdex She Rules Nicole Backpack. for my own MacBook. It has a very clean look and many of the reviewers say it fits their 13.3" MacBooks just right.

I love my Incase Sling Pack. It's only 5.5 inches deep and it's got a convenient pouch on the strap to hold an iPhone / iPod.

I noticed this very plain backpack at American Apparel the other day. It comes in tons of colours.
