Summary: I have owned this Targus backpack for several months, but last weekend was the first time I have traveled with it. It easily held my laptop, gadgets, magazines, snacks, and even a couple of books, It is by far the most comfortable back back that I have ever owned and the endless supply of pockets...
Summary: Made from good strong materials, plus or minus the faults in engineering the laptop area as mentioned, could also have used 2 bungee straps for a uniform hold, less chance of Velcro separation and better holding of the laptop.
Pros: Well manufactured, lots of space, gives some piece of mind to carrying your pc. great quality backpack.
Cons: Laptop padding area needs to extend more to the top of the pack, because that's not .3in off, more like 1-2... holds "nearly" 17" padding could be thicker in my opinion, though it does seem quite resistant to pressure by the feel it and possibly shock absorption. but really reminds me of the chee...
Perfect for 16" laptops. 17" are going to be a squeeze.

Summary: Good quality build and durable, especially for the price, but I wouldn't recommend for a 17" laptop, nothing bigger than 16", or you're leaving the top two corners unpadded, which to me, is a deal-breaker.
Pros: - Excellent Price for the Quality. The workmanship is exactly what you'd expect from a high-profile brand like Targus. I can trust this to be strong and durable - which is exactly what I need when this will be on my back at 80mph on my motorcycle. - Doesn't look stupid. (Hey, if you're shopping f...
Cons: - There's just no way a real 17" laptop's gonna fit comfortable in this thing. I went shopping for 17" bags for my 16" because I like the idea of extra padding, versus over-stuffing a 15.4" laptop backpack. When this arrived, the first thing I did was slip my laptop in to see how it fit. It fits ...
Summary: I just wish it fit in this bookpack since it looks and is great but newegg's mistake just angers me. I really feel bad for giving this product 2 stars but im only doing it in hope of newegg realizing their mistake and taking some action.
Pros: The backpack itself is great and Targus once again makes another great product.
Cons: This is the first time i have had such a problem with newegg misrepresenting their products. When i read the description for the bag on newegg it said outside 16.25" x 19" x 5" and capacity (which one would assume is the laptop compartment) 16.5" x 12.9" x 2.2". However, my ASUS G73JH laptop came...
Pros: Well i would like to start off saying i already own a targus laptop bag, and that I had high expectations for this. When it arrived it was exactly as it stated, fit my 17" hp laptop no problem. There was plenty of storage and it even fits my school books. Great product!
Cons: fabric was a little cheap but cant beat the price
Summary: seems to hold my Macbook Pro (15 inch model, non-unibody) just fine, but a bit loose... Then again, if I was buying a backpack for that thing, I would've gotten a 15.4 inch backpack.
Pros: The bag has plenty of room, for both laptop, accessories, and random other stuff..
Cons: I bought this bag to fit the Asus G73, lets just say the other reviewer didn't have THAT 17-inch asus laptop. pocket dimensions should theoretically hold the behemoth, but it doesn't fit. No eggs off for this, as the dimensions are a bit shy and I was looking for something cheap for the Asus.
Summary: I bought this backpack as a bargain to replace my last one, thinking if it died that I'd be out only $45. Guess I don't need to be looking for a new one any time soon.
Pros: Excellent storage space for even large notebooks and accessories. Large zippers allow for it to almost open completely and make for more versatility. Outer pockets also very good and are designed well for a student on-the-go or a traveler hitting the road. Sturdy construction and quality material...
