Bicycling with laptop: 1)tough/rugged case/bag 2)Tips

I am looking on purchasing a laptop (probably a 15.4 inch widescreen Dell Inspiron 6000, or possibly a 17 inch Widescreen). My main mode of transportation is the bicycle.

I am looking on getting a case or bag that would fully protect the laptop from any bumps (e.g. when the bag on my back swings to one side and hits a pedestrian or a lamp-post/telephone post). and from any falls that I might take. I would like a heavy-duty case. Weight is no issue. If it's heavy, it's okay. I just want to protect the investment! Rainproof-ness is a welcome but not-absolutely-necessary thing. Backpacks are good, but in the summer, when it's hot, I'd like a mailman style bag. (What exactly do you call that kind of bag that slings over one shoulder and is around waist-level?)

Do you know of any companies/stores that sell these? What would you recommend for the laptop-carrying bicyclist? Any advice or tips?

I understand that this is not a linux-specific question, but I wasn't sure where else to post. If you know other forums/websites for these sort of questions, please let me know.

Thank you!

Please do not post the same thread in more than one forum. Picking the most relevant forum and posting it once there makes it easier for other members to help you and keeps the discussion all in one place.
