I am currently using the lowepro comptekker. I am looking for a larger and more comfortable backpack for camera gears and a 15" laptop. The only one I have found so far that seems to fit what I need is the tamrac expedition 8x. Are there any other similar backpacks? I do not mind no-name brands.

You might take a look at:

fstopgear.com
Gura Gear
Mountainsmith
ThinkTank photo

There are probably also other LowePro models that fit your needs.

The Click Elite Pro Elite will fit a fair amount of gear and up to a 17" laptop.

My ThinkTank Streetwalker HD holds a ton of gear.

I am a Think Tank Photo Streetwalker believer. The HD version is great for camera gear plus laptop. The regular and Pro versions are great for camera gear minus laptop. They really counterbalance weight to make a heavy load seem like it vanished.

I think the Tamrac Expedition line is the best-made backpack of all of these, and I've seen them all at B&H. It's a bulletproof line of bags. The only problem is that you're tempted to load the 8X up so much that the weight becomes a problem to carry for any length of time.

ThinkTank Streetwalker HD is awesome. Fits 15" laptops with no problem, and is very comfortable. I took mine hiking through the jungle in Costa Rica. It did very well.

Another vote here for the Think Tank Streetwalker Hard Drive. Holds plenty of gear plus a laptop and is very comfortable.

I owned an Expedition 8, sold it here, then 6 months later couldn't live without it and bought another one. It's just that good a backpack when you're covering ground and need a comfortable rugged carry.

If you are looking for a deal, Fry's has a case logic large backback that will hold your kit and a 15" laptop for $60. I believe is it being clearanced out since case logic has replaced it in their lineup with a newer model. This pack gets nice reviews on Amazon where it goes for $120. At B&H it sells for $160.

I have this one and it is stout, strong and can take a beating when traveling. I stuff it full and the weight is the only issue. I will carry everything in my sig but the 800mm in it and holds up fine. can't go wrong with this bag.

I had B&H send me a Lowepro Pro Trekker 600 AW a couple months ago. It will carry so much gear that it gets uncomfortably heavy. I can't remember finding it on the Lowepro web page. It might be discontinued and I just purchased old stock. I don't know. A very well built bag.
