      Use this case for a new laptop, one that has the wide 17" screen. Laptop fits perfectly and there is room for the extras that are needed (charger, small USB hub and a mouse).
      I would have liked the main compartment to zip open down the sides rather than just across the top' making it easier to load the laptop.

      I can't say it's good or bad. but if you own a 17" computer, say, a macbook pro 17, this case is way too large for it.
      it is humongous, though you can't quite see it on the photos.

      it can literally fit a 19"~20" laptop, no exaggeration here.
      but it does fit a 17" well. why? because the laptop compartment has a partition that you can use to create a space that's just wide enough for a 17" laptop, leaving an extra space on the side big enough for a mini umbrella.

      the problem? it's really tall, too! you can expect to get lots empty room right above your laptop.
      in fact, the front pocket is even big enough for the macbook pro 17.
      thats right. you can imagine what huge laptops you can fit in the actual laptop compartment itself...

      it'll be a great bonus if you intend to carry large format folders (if any)
      but honestly I felt embarrassed carrying it around for its unbelievable size alone.
      there used to be 18+ inch laptops in the market, they would have fit better in this than a 17".

        This is a very nice laptop case. My 17 inch laptop fits easily inside. There is lots of room for papers and peripherals. This would also work for smaller laptops thanks to an adjustable padded Velcro partition. Not needing end to end down sizing for my 17 inch laptop, I put the partition in the bottom for extra padding.

          The product is well made, and I've liked using it over the first month I've had it.
          It is a large case. It will fit a ton of stuff in it. On airline flights, I don't think it will fit under the seat in front of me.

          Got a new laptop that is 16.5" wide and needed to replace my old laptop case.
          There is good room for everything I carry with my laptop. Cables, plugs, USB drives and other computer related items. As well as small travel size items for when I'm gone for a few days.

          Only thing was the laptop padding was a little limited. I ended us using my old padding with the new case and my old Eagle Creek strap (with gel padding).

          Comments about Targus TLE400 Leather Notebook Case:

          Second TLE400. The first is finally starting to wear on the corners after 6 years of abuse and replaced for cosmetics.

          Excellent bag. Quality leather with first rate stitching. A 17inch fits perfectly and should handle an 18inch. There are still pockets and cubbies haven't even used yet. Carries well with either the strap or hand grip. I don't baby this bag at all and other than the corners, the finish is still great.

          Couple of minor downs. This bag is maybe a pound heavier than the nylon but then again this is top leather bag and not a grocery sack. The other is the double flap where the laptop goes in. Works perfectly but would be nice if a bit of padding on the inside.

          Functional, tough, looks great, and very reasonbly priced. Easy buy.

          I bought it for my 2011 macbook pro 17",
          and immediately realized how HUGE it was.
          it can literally fit a 19" laptop, if there's one.
          the laptop compartment can be expanded horizontally by about 2 inches,
          there's a partition separating the spaces, so I put a mini umbrella in it next to the laptop....
          the laptop compartment itself is also way taller than the macbook (nearly 14" VS 10.6")
          I'd recommend that you get a 16" bag instead if you are looking to get so much space, some 16" bags are tall enough to fit the 17" MBP, check the specs before your purchase.
          get it only if you have LOTS stuff to carry besides the laptop, otherwise, you may be carry quite some unnecessary volume...

                            I bought this for my ultra-picky husband, and so far he hasn't had one bad word about it! It is roomy, well organized, and stylish.

                            Use this case for a new laptop, one that has the wide 17" screen. Laptop fits perfectly and there is room for the extras that are needed (charger, small USB hub and a mouse).
                            I would have liked the main compartment to zip open down the sides rather than just across the top' making it easier to load the laptop.

                                    It is quite bulky and heavy to carry around. Not recommending for anyone.
