  • Summary: Terrific case for my son's new Apple 17" Laptop. Researched several sites and read many a reviews, perfect for carrying his lap-top, power cords, mouse, University Supplies. Walmart had the best price with free shipping. Received 1wk after I placed my order on-line. Great Value!

  • Summary: After reading the other reviews, I purchased this because my laptop is 17.3" and I wanted to make sure it would fit, which it does, with room to spare. I can easily fit my laptop, mouse, charger, mouse pad, headsets, and a bottle of water (see photos) The shoulder strap is very comfortable because it is wise and made well. Optional handle is on the case if you don't want to use the shoulder strap.

  • Summary: It's a bit difficult to find a good bag for a 17.3 inch laptop. This was the best I could find without spending a boatload of money. Needless to say, it gets the job done. It comes with a whole bunch of pockets and even a fleeced pocket for your tablet. The hidden water-bottle could come in handy one day. It's a rather large bag so don't be surprised if you raise eyebrows while walking around with it; big computers need big bags.

  • Summary: This is the only product review I've ever written. I took the time because I feel so strongly about this product. This case is well made, big and has pockets for everything. My 17.3 laptop fits very comfortably. Great investment for the $40 I paid for it.

The most useful laptop bag ever!

  • Summary: I have had many laptop bags over the course of my lifetime and this is by far the best one I have owned! The bag is very light and being made out of nylon its quite durable. The bag features an inner pocket for a tablet and fits my iPad in a hard shell perfectly. The pocket is felt lined so you know your screen will be safe. On one side is a zippered compartment that contains a mesh water bottle...or reusable coffee cup in my case!
  • Pros: light weight , pockets and compartments everywhere! , the warrantee is solid! , did i mention light weight!
  • Cons: shoulder strap not removable , not the prettiest bag.

  • Summary: There is plenty of storage space in this case, but may also be too large to travel with at times.

  • Summary: I have been pretty happy with this bag. It is durable, attractive, and has lots of room for the laptop plus accessories. My only complaint is that the shoulder strap, which I almost never use, does not seem to be removable. I am about to cut mine off permanently because it is a nuisance when traveling.
  • Pros: durable , attractive , holds lots of stuff
  • Cons: shoulder strap is not removable.

  • Summary: I love Targus bags. I needed a good, strong and durable bag to be able to carry my ASUS G74SX with me. Even though that laptop is a monster, it fits nicely in the bag. I got a couple of issues to make it fit the first day but it's ok now. I got a lot of space to carry my power brick, accessories, documents, etc. It also got a lot of padding.
  • Pros: - Lot of spaces and pockets to store objects, - Lot of padding for protection, - Good overall quality of the material
  • Cons: - The shoulder pad should have been a bit bigger/longer

It has design flaws.

  • Summary: The plastic support where the handler is fixed got broken. It seems that you did not calculate apropriately the weight of a 17" laptop and its accesories. Besides, when you hold the laptop case, the plastic band that is close to the click, is forced too much and eventually will be broken too. As a big fan of your products, I felt a bit dissapointed with my last experience, the product is good in general, but need an improvement in the holding area.
