      I use the product around campus and move around between home and garage. It is a very spacious case and has a lot of room for other materials such as CDs and books. Could be used for a small carryon for a backpack for school or on trips. The strap could be a little bigger but is still comfortable to carry. I would recommend this to a friend.

      The day I purchased this, I was actually "window shopping" and comparing prices just in case I'd need to come back and complete a purchase. Seeing the durable material and the sturdy straps stitching on the bag's side is what prompted me to BUY it that day. As I looked at the side stitching, I was convinced because the weight of the laptop along w/ other items I carry would break/ snap weak stitching w/in a month or two. Another PLUS I learned as I used this bag was all of the pockets it contained to hold certain various items comfortably, neat, and organized while keeping them safe with the all-around padding. This was important to me since the variety of items I need to carry in addition to the laptop. I only gave a rating of 3 out of 5 stars NOT because I didn't like the product, but instead because I DO like it, but am such a strict person on rating AND always believe there's room for improvement. With that said, I feel good thus far about this product.

          I use this to transport my MacBook Pro 15", iPad and other stuff. You can spend more for a laptop case, but why? This is rugged and functional.

              Protects the laptop, but it should be more creative and design to be used as a backpack, because today walk the whole day with her on the shoulder and pretty tired. you should also already have a more aesthetic design.

                    Haven't used much, but loved it compared to my old laptop case. I like the way it opens for easy access and organization. My other was more like a purse opening - just at the top. I like that this unzips to more of a briefcase or suitcase opening. And you can clearly see everything and where it belongs.

                      Yes, I dig this case, I purchase a laptop for my wife sometime ago, and I wanted her to have a bag or case to protect my investment, so I brought her the Targus platinum case. So when I purchased my own laptop I brought myself a Targus platinum case which I paid a whole lot less at B&H than I paid for at B B , they are identical cases.

                        For the money, this is a very nice laptop case with lots of usable storage space for power supply, CD's, wireless mouse, etc. The edges are protected by plastic abrasion resistant panels. I use this case with a 17" HP laptop.

                          For the price this is a very nice bag. I saw this same bag at Officemax at double the price. I purchased mine at B&H. Lots of compartments and is durable. Might like a little more padding but for the price I cannot complain.

                                This is the perfect case for my new MacBook Pro. Solid, lightweight case. It fits well and has plenty of room for my gear. I especially like the easy access from the outside zipper.
