Great for Students
Posted by: MAC22 from: California on
This backpack is very durable for everyday use. It has a padded pocket for my laptop. My laptop fits perfectly and is very secure. It also has another section for a binder and books, as well as a third section for everything else. It also has a place for a drink. It has pockets to organize almost anything you can think of. Most important however is the fact that it protects your laptop incredibly well. I have owned this backpack for several years now and it is still in excellent condition and still is the best laptop accessory that I have purchased because I take my laptop everywhere with me. I highly recommend this backpack to any student who needs to carry their laptop around with them.

This bag is HUGE!
Posted by: Dazz from: Buffalo NY on
I started a new job and received a laptop computer to use. I had a messenger bag that I used for 10+ years when I had a job that didn't require me to carry a laptop around with me. I have an actual laptop bag (also 10+ years old) that I used for the first couple of days, in addition to bringing along my messenger bag. After a couple of days, I thought that I really needed something that I could carry both my personal items and my laptop in. I went on the website and found this bag - granted, my laptop does not have a 17" screen, but I thought that I'd buy a little bigger bag so that I had a good amount of storage space. Not only can this bag handle my laptop, and the normal items that I usually carry around with me, but it can handle quite a bit more than I'll probably use it for. There are a lot of areas for storing smaller items (CD's, cell phones, MP3 players, etc), and it even has a drink holder and a separate cell phone holder. Needless to say, I think that I'll be using this bag for quite awhile.

Good Backpack to hold that Special Something
Posted by: Jackal221 from: Madisonville,LA on
If you're one of those college or high school students carrying a larger laptop, this is probably the only good one there is. It's strong straps are good for about 70lbs. of books and your computer. It holds my Dv9000 HP Notebook with space to grow. Buy this if you want more and not a laptop case.

The only reason why I got this bag was because of the prior reviews that I read. I have to tell you to be able to have a bag that can fit a 17" lap top and every one of my college books, plus room for accessories is a big Pro to me. The durability seems to be pretty good also. As of right now imp usually chugging around 40+ pounds of weight 5 days a week. This is defiantly the best Bag period I have ever owned. The only complaint that I have is the price. But I guess you have to pay for quality

THE Bag to have for the Notebook
Posted by: Hrd2please27 from: U.S.A on
This bag not only accomodates some of the largest notebooks around, but will also seemelessly adjust to smaller models. The design takes into consideration all of your other needs; from storage of accessories, and other devices like your P.D.A., cell-phone, and music player. You can even keep your music player safely inside, and run your headphones through the simple but ingenius slot made for just that purpose. The padding adds a layer of comfort and security you seldom find in any case on the market. There is just not enough to be said about this bag. If you need to store, carry, or show off your notebook, or just want to know it's safe, this is the product to buy.

Great notebook case
Posted by: gilligan from: on
I've had this bag for a few months now and I love it. I purchased it when BB was running 50% off on Targus cases, which in my opinion is the only way to buy this bag. It's quite expensive, but really worth it if you need a lot of storage space and the ability to tote your 17" notebook. There are dividers in each section of the bookbag (there are three sections), plus tons of small pockets for other stuff. In addition, the straps are great. They are padded very nicely and extra wide for added comfort. I think $90 is a bit much to spend on a notebook case, but this is probably the best option for someone on the go, especially a student. If you can wait for a sale, do it, but if not this is a great product.

Fantastic Travel Bag
Posted by: Ravenwind from: Alaska on
I've always used a conventional laptop case but found that I carried too many "External" devices and gagets that I couldn't find space for in them. When I found the Targus Large Computer Backpack I knew I had to have one. I have packed this bag to the fullest and all the compartments and spaces it has is the best I've ever run across so far. There is a padded space for a large laptop, cooling pad, external HD, external DVD/CD-R/W, cell phone, chargers, docking station, documents, external wireless antenas and cards, USB Hubs, Extension coils, S-Vid coils, AC Adapters, jump drives, CDs/DVDs, and much more if you can believe it. This bag is GREAT and when you think it won't fit into the overhead compartment all you have to do is unbuckle the outside flap and in it slips right in, no problem! I love it! The only flaw I found in much heavy use was one of the pocket seams was beginning to split open a bit but then remember, this bag has a lifetime warranty. If you want to have all your gagents and gear with you when you travel this is the bag for you! Highly Recommend it.

Targus computer backpack
Posted by: jonjon2011 from: on
This bag is excellent for any student or person who likes to carry a backpack. It has more than enough room for a 17 in laptop plus additional pockets for books and binders. I've had it a few days and it has already been well worth the money. I highly recommend this product to anyone in the market for a new backpack to carry a laptop in and go to class!!

Could not be more pleased!
Posted by: nycreviewer from: New York, NY on
The size of the backpack is exceptional. It has been ideal for carrying not only my computer but everything I lug around in NYC, either stopping at the store or heading to work. The pockets are accessible and suit all of my needs. With the purchase of my computer, I received an additional discount but it is worth every cent full price.
