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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
