This is a great backpack for school if you are looking for a good bag that is also built to hold a laptop. It holds a 12 inch Apple I-book perfectly, and should hold any laptop under 6 pounds. But anything bigger than that and you would need a different pack.
With the laptop in place it will hold an inch binder and a typical science textbook, like a physiology book. If you need to carry more books than this though, you might consider their larger pack, the focus.
The bag is actually for my wife and this is what she said about it: it is comfortable, great for my laptop. I like the organization pockets. The only thing that I don't like about it is the side pockets are kinda small--can't fit an orange in it. The fit is great and it also has great zippers and a really cool look. The second main compartment has pen holders and pouches to keep all of your school things.
This is a great backpack for school. I must give it props for that, but it was a little two bulky while using it outisde. I used it for mountain biking and climbing. It worked well but I learned it was too big. For instance while mountain biking it bounced around on my back and seemed too big. While climbing it restricted some of my movment. Other than being too big for those activities it is a good school pack and day hike backpack.

A compact and ergonomic solution for commuters who extend oil-free Wednesdays into the other six days of the week, the Osprey Flux backpack combines school and business pack designs with backcountry-ready components. The padded laptop sleeve and deluxe internal organizer hint at an orientation more towards business than academic efforts, but many students find that laptops are standard equipment on campus these days. Whether it's school or business, swap out your laptop for a hydration pack and you'll find an exit port and hose guides that can help keep you hydrated on weekend day hikes. Along the sides you'll find a roomy pocket for your 32-oz. water bottle and a smaller quick-access compartment for your cellular phone. Aside from reduced dimensions, the Osprey Flux backpack is similar in features to the Osprey Focus backpack. Like all Osprey backpacks, the Flux backpack emphasizes ergonomic comfort through a molded ventilation backpanel backed by a rigid framesheet.
