ladies help with roller bag choice...

I tried out the air boss and then the sky train, desparate to find a way to not have to use a roller bag......I have to travel with a huge 17" computer and thought the wheels were adding too much bulk.......unfortunately both bags were way to big for me and unmanageable....
so the only thing I can think of is the biggest (but lightest) roller bag that I can carry on.
suggestions????
Im very disappointed because the red oxx stuff is gorgeous.....
Thank you all!!
PS: I also carry a separate cpap which while it doesnt count as my carry on, is still an issue...

This is what I use, not sure if it is big/strong enough if want to carry your computer in it though.

Very light. Looks different. The wheels are not heavy.

I can do about three days easily in it. I carry a small travel (Transcend) CPAP that fits easily into it with still room for three days clothes, toiletries, tablet, etc. as long as I don't pack too many shoes

However, I don't think I would put a heavy laptop in it.

Here's a picture with a model that gives you a idea of size:

I find it fits easily into most overhead bins.

ooh and the pink one is on sale:

Having an iPad changed my life, but now I can do most of my work when traveling with my iPhone.

Don't miss the extra weight at all.

So sorry that the Red Oxx items won't meet your specific needs!

Thursday night my hearing aid quit cold. I am getting a no charge replacement but have to wait a few days to get it. Hearing professional such as yourself are dearly needed and appreciated!

A few days without my hearing aid has reminded me that I really do need it!

Many of my friends and co-workers have bugged me about it and doubt that I actually need it.

I'm grateful to have it and grateful to the wonderful people who make it possible.
