My newly purchased North Face Borealis backpack is probably the best backpack I've ever used. With specific sections for my laptop and iPad as well as a large section for books and notepads and another smaller section with organizational compartments for pens, pencils a calculator and mini notepads, it's the perfect backpack for anyone with a type A personality (like me) when it comes to school. I highly recommend this backpack, but if for some reason you don't love it, my biggest tip for backpack shopping is to do it in person! Do not buy it online without looking at in person first. If you hate it you have to go through the whole process of getting to the store to return it then finding another one, then before you know it you've wasted more time returning the bag then you it would've taken you to just go to the store in the first place.
