What's a good messenger bag that also secures to the handlebars?

Not quite, but close. Looking for something that can hold a 13 inch laptop.

Very wide drop bars. Have you thought about a front rack and bag? You could carry the computer and all your other cra- er, stuff.

Right now I have a rear basket, but not sure if it's for me.

A Timbuk2 medium messenger bag fits perfectly in a Wald 137 basket.

I had one once; I didn't like it because the weight was too high. I like panniers much better. I understand that front racks work pretty well.
