Luggage for 15 day trip?? Help needed.

Luggage for 15 day trip?? Help needed.
I wanted to get some advice. My husband and I are doing a 15 day Europe trip in early July 2013. We are traveling to 4 countries during that time ( as my husbands band is touring). We will fly into Amsterdam and spend 2 nights, fly to London spend 3 nights travel up to Birmingham for 1 night, York 1 night, Edinburgh Scotland 2 nights then fly to Paris for the remaining 5 nights and depart for home California. This will be our first trip to Europe and considering the fast pace of travel we were thinking of just taking two rolling backpack carry -on's and a small bag/purse. I've never packed light before but with so many cities in a short time being able to just take carry-on's and not check baggage is very appealing. I cant decide if we should just find a light rolling carry on and carry a regular backpack or to buy a Wheeled Convertible backpack that comes with a detachable daypack like the Osprey Meridian 22" Wheeled Convertible Pack Carry on size http://www.ebags.com/product/osprey/meridian-22/140408?productid=10208797
In theory it sounds great but it's expensive #$329# and a bit heavier than just a travel backpack# I found one at REI that is only $239# REI Stratocruiser Wheeled Luggage - 22" http://www.rei.com/product/827970/rei-stratocruiser-wheeled-luggage-22
I am also considering eBags Mother Lode TLS Weekender Convertible http://www.ebags.com/product/ebags/mother-lode-tls-weekender-convertible/143101?productid=10235503 which is much cheaper at only $80, very light at 3 lbs, 15 oz but it does not have wheels. We will be taking public transportation # train# most of the time. Advice ? Also we have not booked our flight from Amsterdam to London, or Edinburgh Scotland to Paris. What is the best deals on flights? Best airline?
Thanks !!!!!
Linsey
