Rear Panniers or Saddle Bag?

Im currently using a backpack to commute 30 miles round trip. I'm getting a new CX bike to use as a commuter/ winter training bike that takes a pannier rack but had noticed the Carradice seat post mounted rack as an alternative.
I do carry a 13.5" notebook laptop at times (not every commute) as well as lunch and work clothes and just wondered what the thoughts are on the best solution?
The Carradice Super C Slim will fit the laptop and I won't need a full pannier rack, with an ortlieb classic I can put everything in one pannier or split over two to balance out but may be more cumbersome to cycle with?
