Can anyone please suggest a good-looking pannier that will take a 17" - 440mm laptop?
My partner's firm bought a big laptop and it's too heavy for a back pack.
What we would like is a pannier bag with the usual compression straps etc for a laptop, plus a flap to cover the hooks and a carrying strap so the laptop can get carried around to meetings, looking business-like.
We saw one once in an LBS, but it was broken and the model had been discontinued.
I've done a lot of research and got nowhere, so I'd be very grateful for your help.

Preston Officebag, Notebook Bag, and Meddo. I bought my bag online from BSC Bikes; there are other stores which apparently stock Basil, e.g. Abbotsford Cycles, but if you want a particular type you might have to get them to special order it in.
Ortlieb do an office bag with a padded notebook insert.
Jandd have a laptop bag with raincover, in standard black. Another standard black, Arkel Briefcase. In a somewhat different configuration, there's the Axiom Transition Laptop Pannier.
If you want something a little less office-like and somewhat more whimsical, there's the powder blue laptop bag from Cycle Chic.co.uk
I hope this is a good starting point for you! (I did a lot of research before deciding on my gadding-about-town pannier, as you can see....)

Think it was around $110 or so. Has water proof cover, is expandable and looks very much like a standard laptop carry bag.
