Summary: I purchase another brand case for my new Macbook Air and was totally unhappy but felt I was stuck with it. Upon seeing this case, I fell in love with it and immediately returned my previous (non Targus) case and purchased this 14" messenger. Quality, look and construction makes this case a standout. I was so impressed that I scrapped my larger business computer bag and just purchased the 16" version of this case.
Pros: quality construction , great internal padding , stylish
Summary: I am a It tech and this bag fits all my needs. It has ample storage for portable hard drives, usbs, wires, cables, calculators, ipods and much more. The split compartment provides better organization for single subject notebooks, magazines, and small binders. The laptop compartment is well padded and fits my 14in HP perfectly, though sometimes it can feel really snug. The materials are great quality. The magnets are expectionally strong.
Pros: storage/compartments , laptop is well cushioned , durable and strong , great design
Cons: sholder strap may come across as being too thin
Summary: This is my EDC bag. I bought this bag to carry my mac pro, but I become to use it even without laptop, as multi purpose bag. There i carry 2 Moleskines (large and pocket), a book, a hard drive, a Parker IM pen, a Smith&Wesson tactical pen, HP 12C calculator, a Leatherman Wave, business cards, post it tags, a Victorinox Soldier, iPhone charger, iPhone VGA connector and a Fox Karambit.
Pros: lots of space , many compartments , 360 soft cover for laptop and individual sleeve.
