Excerpt: Not everyone owns a 15 inch laptop computer and yet most companies only sell cases intended for use with 15 inch laptops. Mine is a full 17 inch wide display, so finding the Targus 17 inch Notebook Case was a pleasant surprise.
Pros: many pockets, Quality, Good Value, good protection, Lightweight, Strap, size, professional appearance
Summary: I have owned this bag since 2004 (almost 8 years) and used it over the years extensively. I have carried two different 17" laptops (one HP and one Dell) in this bag through airports around the world.
Pros: very strong bag , classy professional leather look
Summary: Review of Targus TLE400 case: We bought an ASUS G73SW-BST6 and needed a case for it. Our main consideration was protection. Cost, within reason, was less important. The computer is a large 17" laptop, at 16-1/2" x 12-5/8" x 2-1/4," and heavy, and has a large heavy external power supply.
Summary: I owned this case for a couple of years - and it was stolen along with my laptop from my home (yeah, no bueno). When I looked to replace items, I couldn't find another case that was near as well built as this. Thankfully, I still had the receipt from the original - and a search later landed me here.
Pros: Comfortable Strap, Good Protection, Lots Of Pockets And Features, Rugged, Weatherproof
Summary: I bought Targus as I had a 15" case that was excellent. The 17" case is not as well made. The zippers are not smooth. The movable strip for the main laptop slot came apart in a few days. I was horrified to see that it was merely a thin strip of Styrofoam that had been poorly covered with nylon.
Cons: The zippers are not smooth. The movable partition for the laptop slot is awfully made.
Summary: If organization is your goal, then this case may be for you. But if you want good functionality and durability, then I'd skip this one. This case is very poorly designed, and has a few significant flaws. Only the two outer flat sides are leather.
Pros: Easily fits a 17" notebook, good for organization of files.
Cons: Overall a very dated design and it doesn't adapt to the needs of today's users.
Summary: Targus notebook case is a good investment for those people who like to protect their computer. The Leather Exterior layer will protect your investment against sharp perforations and hits. I also like Targus lifetime warranty commitment.
Pros: Good protection for your notebook against rain and possible hits on the go! Large storage pocket for your notebook accessories.
Cons: Pockets for Media made of nylon. Floppy drive or any accessory can perforate the pocket.
