Rolling Laptop Bags: Totally Geeky or Geek Chic?

I'm about to go on a trip soon, so I've been doing a mental checklist of things to pack and trying to do everything to make my trip smooth and easy. This list from Wired is making me want to optimize how efficiently I can get through the airport, so much so that I was reconsidering whether my laptop bag was the best bet, or if I should spring for a wheeled-laptop tote for travel, like this Lodis Audrey bag, or this baby blue wheelie by Willowbrook.But then I stopped considering it when I thought I might be wheeling my laptop bag. In school, rolling your bag behind you was just something you did not do. Am I old enough or big enough to not care about that stuff anymore and see it as geek chic? I don't know! What do you think?

I think this is a cool looking back, but like some others, I am torn. I actually found this page because I was seeking rolling laptop bags that wouldn't make me feel "frumpy." I am a single working mom, who travels with ALL my work at all times. Balancing a 40 lb bag on one hip and a sleeping 30 lb 3 year old with blanket & pillow on the other hip is REALLY challenging. Where is the tipping point?

I wish I could have the bag without the rolling part!

I think it is a good idea, my laptop bag gets really heavy with all the extras I pack into it!

I think these bags are a good idea. It's soooooo much better for your back and it looks cute to top it off! AND it's will fit my 17" MacBook Pro (well hopefully). Yay! :)

Suitcases are the only bags that should roll. But the design is cute, anyway.

Cute if your a chick...bad if your a dude.

I don't like how when you're walking by people with rolley bags you get hit in the ankles. And my mom uses them. I'm voting geeky. :)

Rolling bags scream "geeky," no matter how cute they may be.

Geeky, BUT, the cute color and style make it chic. I'm torn.

Pass. I'm really not a fan of bags with wheels...
