Would like to have a bag that I can carry around that looks like a regular bag with my photo gear inside. I would also like to use the bag when travelling as a regular bag to take to work.
I've found the Crumpler Delhi (will go and see the crumpler shop and check out which size would be good) and the Kata DB-455 (would like to carry more lenses). Is there anything else which would be worth considering?

How about this? Removable camera pouch so it can used as a regular bag.

Ditto to Ed; except mine is an F-804. Works as a laptop bag, a grocery bag, and a camera bag (though not all at once). I even went wading in the Polar Bear Swim with my F-804 so it is also a swimmer's bag.

Take a look at the lowepro fastpack series
I heard they have more space for general things than the kata ones

Try the Billingham Hadley/Hadley Pro (Pro has a handle as well as a strap). It's pricey but it has a padded insert that pulls out completely to leave you with a soft canvas bag with 2 front pockets, plus a zipped rear document pocket. Get one with the optional shoulder pad and it's a great little bag. The big plus is you don't have to unload all the kit, just pull out the insert when you want it as a normal bag.

My Hadley Pro carries 40D with 17-40L, Sigma 18-200, Canon 70-300IS, Nifty-Fifty Mk1 and Kenko 2x converter quite comfirtably, with a few accessroies and spare batteries in the front pockets. You can also get add on pouches that clip onto a leather band which surrounds the strap at each end. I got 2, one carries a 350D body and the other a 580EX. All that plus it's still airline cabin-safe size with the pouches on.

Tenba makes several that would meet your needs.

The Tenba bags are stiff. I have the smaller of the 2 messenger bags, and it can't hold my 40D with 70-200 2.8 attached and the laptop without a lot of effort getting it all in. But it's a nice bag and I use it for my old MF camera now.

I have the Domke F-802 bag and it's really the only bag I take when I need one camera and 2 lenses and a flash. It has a place to put a small laptop, but unfortunately, it's not big enough to hold anything larger than a 14 inch. I am aiming to get an Urban Disguise bag sometime, as they look perfect for what I want, just I don't really need another bag. :)

+1 on both the Billingham Hadley, and also the suggestion of adapting any bag using Domke inserts. Both are great solutions.

I love the Bilingham. They're a bit expensive, but I've had one for years and it still basically looks like new. They're wonderful bags. I carry a 5D2 with a mounted 17-40, 70-200 f:2.8 IS with hood reversed (no tripod mount), a 50 f1.4 with hood reversed, and a 1.4 TC in it.

Gets a bit heavy like that, but the Domke Postman pad works wonders.

ETA: I don't have the Hadley "Pro" - just the Hadley. So I don't have the handle on top, and I don't have the leather patches on the sides to mount one of the small pouches. :(

I've got this bag, and although stylish, there's a couple issues to consider:

1) The flap doesn't seem to cover the extreme sides of the bag, so be careful when traveling in rain.
2) The shoulder strap that's included is very stiff (I never wore it enough to break it in, though).
