Summary: My very large DELL laptop now actually fits into a case! In addition, there is also room for the "extras" (e.g., mouse). The case is rugged so it is less likely to wear out as quickly as a fabric case.
Summary: This particular one is a gift to be given at the end of the month, but it is almost exactly like one I bought for my laptop by Targus in 2010 that has been ideal. I bought mine for a 15 inch as it gave me all the extra room I needed for school. It was used for 4 years and is still in good shape with a lot of use. This is a nicely set up bag that is durable for the student. That is why I got it as a present for another student to give at the end of this month.
Excerpt: This is my second exact case as my previous case was four years old and pretty worn. I have a 17 inch laptop that I take everywhere and wanted protection when not in use. The laptop is held in place by a very sturdy strap. The main zipper would split on the corners and I would have a heck of a time to get it to stay together. Was reminded that this case says Lifetime Limited Warranty. Will see how that goes.
Summary: I have an ASUS RoG G73JH laptop. It's a 17" screen, but because it's a gaming laptop, it has a funnel-shaped fan vent that adds extra bulk on the back of it. Because of this, many laptops built for a 17" screen won't fit it. However, this laptop bag is roomy enough to fit it. It's a snug fit, but it doesn't take unnecessary wrestling to get it in; not to mention that it means my laptop doesn't slide around in it.
Summary: The sleeve I bought for extra protection and my 17.3 inch HP laptop fit nicely inside this case. There are plenty of pockets, etc. to hold all the extras. My only complaint is that the large flap on the outside rides up on both the left and right side instead of laying flat.
Excerpt: Disclaimer - I own a CBT301D-10 that's very similar in design to this one, but it's enough to steer me clear of this model. Beware - the outer pouch unzips only on one side, so if you expect to get full access to whatever you've stored in there, you won't. The buckle on mine is way too easy to push in crooked when trying to buckle it one-handed in the airport, and it won't self align and click into place.
Summary: The internal strap is too loose. The velcro on the black strap doesn't run the length of the strap and therefore limits how tight the strap can be pulled. My laptop is 1" thick, and the strap is designed to hold something 2+ inches thick. Therefore, the laptop flops around in the case. Am I using it incorrectly?
