    Very Happy With Purchase

    I bought this on kind of an impulse while on a business trip. I always disliked the bag that my laptop manufacturer supplied because it only held the laptop and a pencil. Even adding the power supply and a couple of cords made it awkward. I like this bag because it has substantially more room to include the laptop, a portfolio type notebook and a useful front pocket that holds far more than a pencil and a pair of reading glasses. It's definitely a "low cost" bag so don't expect it to have the bells and whistles of a $50-$80 computer brief case. This is not that. Instead, it's very light weight with a simple design, but well constructed. Your laptop will probably get damaged if you drop it from a high place onto concrete so don't do that. However, my manufacturer's laptop case has just the same drawback. If you're looking for something light and understated to keep your laptop safe from all but severe handling, yet be able to hold your DisplayPort to HDMI adapter cable for presentations, your mouse, power supply, portfolio, cell phone, charger, car keys business cards and some pens and pencils without having it look fat and bloated and hard to handle, this is a great alternative. It even comes with a shoulder strap.

    I bought this for my boyfriend because I wanted him to have something to put his MacBook Air in, so I looked online first and saw this was at a reasonable price and overall seemed great from first appearance. Then I went in store and saw it for myself and knew it was a perfect match! It has a lot of cushion inside so you know the laptop is being protected and includes multiple pockets to put various of other items in it also! The material is wonderful and it has more than enough space for a MacBook Air! Another great thing is that it also has a handle and a strap so you can either carry it like a briefcase or sling it around like a bag! My boyfriend loves it and so do I so I'm definitely glad I purchased it and I would surely recommend it to a friend!

    I picked this laptop case up to go along with my new laptop, and I was lucky enough to catch it on sale for $21.99. I wasn't terribly concerned with the features, as all I had planned to use it for was the laptop, the charger and a mouse. When I got it home and really opened it up, I was amazed at just how much room this thing has! It has 2 dividers in the main compartment, all of which are padded, so I could safely transport my laptop, my tablet and something else, plus it has an exterior pocket on the back, perfect for paperwork. The front has 2 zippered pockets, one large enough for paperwork and notebooks, the other for pens and such, plus an open pocket to the side that fits my mouse perfectly. This really is a great deal for the money spent.

    I'm very pleased with this bag and would recommend it to anyone looking for a durable and functional computer bag. I bought this bag for my new Lenovo Laptop computer. The fit is a little tight and it must be carefully positioned in order to fit in the desired pocket. The bag also has several additional pockets that hold my mouse, and the power supply and associated cords. There's also room for a legal pad, pens, pencils, etc. I prefer to use the handle when carrying the bag, but a shoulder strap is also included.

    Descent Carry Bag

    Broke the strap on my old bad and needed one in a hurry. Bought this at a near by BestBuy to get me through the rest of my trip. Excellent bag for the price. Plenty of room and durable. I didn't plan on using it this long, it was supposed to be a temporary bag until I got the chance to buy a nice leather bag but so far there's been no need to replace it. I would have given 5 starts but it's a little smaller than I'm used to and required I pick and choose what accessories I want to take with me.

    This attach was purchased when I recent;y bought a 13" MacBook Air. It actually replaced a more expensive and much less useful hard shell attach. Provides good protection and lots of sections and pockets for accessories, papers and office supplies. Two sections inside hold laptop and iPad if you need to carry both. Cellphone pocket on outside is a nice touch. Very well made, strong fabric and good zippers which is a problem with some attach. Has both handles and adjustable, removable should strap. Pretty much all I need at a very reasonable price.

    For the price, I'm pleased with this purchase. It is a sturdy bag with a lot of useful compartments. In addition to carrying my laptop, I can fit a whole bunch of other stuff in it too. It is still holding up after 3 months of daily use, carrying it around, putting it on the floor, having water accidentally spill in it, etc. My only complaints are minor: it doesn't have a shoulder strap pad and one corner of the bag started to thread, but not rip or tear, after 6 weeks. It was probably an extra loose thread because it didn't affect the condition of the bag.

    Great basic laptop briefcase. Well built and sturdy. Holds laptop securely along with a notebook binder and a few documents. Lightweight, compact and easy to carry by hand or with shoulder strap. This is not made for carrying around everything off the top of your desk. But then again, who wants to carry all that stuff around. At it's low price it's a great bargain.

    I looked st many briefcases for a large laptop and this is by far the best. It has ample padding, is lightweight, great handles, an open pocket that runs the length of the briefcase in the back and a zippered one in the front. There is a large zippered pocket in front for pens, etc. 2 computer sleeves built in with Velcro closing allows for computer and iPad. And there’s a removable shoulder strap! Well worth the money. Wish it came in colors beside black for women.

    Durable Budget Case

    I'm picky when it comes to laptop bags. If you are very mobile with your laptop, you will eventually have it bang up against things. It is a good idea to have a sturdy case that can handle some rough handling. This case does that, it is the only excellently priced bag this sturdy that I've found. Other bags will cost 4 times as much for similar features. It is very light weight and has enough compartments and storage space for most things you would want to carry with you. You can fit a couple chargers, ipad, and a book nicely.

    After I bought this I realized that my LARGE ZPRO phone fit into that front right deep sleeve beautifully (snug but easy to take out when needed) ... Room for my mouse in med zip pocket (front) and a back sleeve (no velcro etc) but will hold stuff pretty snug in it I think (or you can use inside area for Magazines, papers, notebooks, etc... Handy strap so I dont end up putting this down to pay at a fast food place and laying it down!!! SUPER Happy I chose this one... Made well. Great quality.

    This briefcase bag replaces a 6 year old Kingston. This Insignia is very light with 3 middle dividers. I use the main one for my 15.6 ASUS F556 and the other 2 dividers hold an 11" Toshiba laptop and a 11" Acer Chromebook. There is still plenty of room for other items to carry in this briefcase in my case, 3 mouses, 8-1/2 X 11 paper, ear buds....etc....etc. You really have to examine this briefcase to visualize all the things this bag can carry! It will NOT disappoint and is so easy on the pocket book.

    I was searching online for a replacement laptop case as current one wasn't big enough for my new laptop. Found this one and knew it was at my local bestbuy. However, the laptop case area was a total disaster area. I found where it should have been (knew the sku via my research) but it was nowhere to be found. I finally found it via pure luck. Not once did a single associate even approach me-- I was searching for over half an hour. 5 stars for the bag. 0 for the customer service.

    After purchasing a new laptop I looked for a case for transport. The Insignia case fit the bill. It fits my Lenovo Flex 5 15.6" perfectly. I like the liner. That kind of material will hold up well long term. There are pockets for the power supply and other accessories. The back pocket has a zippered bottom allowing the laptop case to fit over the handle of my carry-on suitcase. That's huge if you travel as much as I do. All in all, the Insignia is a very nice case.

    This bag looks nice and seems to be made fairly well. The handles and strap connectors aren't as strong or thick as more expensive bags and I doubt it will hold up to rigorous use. But for light use it appears it will be fine. The storage is nice. The laptop pocket is nicely padded. There is more than enough storage for several folders, cords and extra gear. I would recommend it for the right uses. If your a commuter that is rough on your bag then you may want to look elsewhere.

    Solid Bag for Low-Normal Use

    I am a Fire Alarm Programmer and I use this bag to carry my work laptop around. Its pretty sturdy but it is mainly used to hold my laptop in so I don't really lug it around my shoulder all day. Honestly I grab it from the handle from my vehicle to the job site mostly. I would like padding in the shoulder strap for more comfort in cases where I would wear it on me. My job sites do range for clean ACed rooms to renovating/construction sites and it has held up quite nicely and stays clean.

    I just received a HP 15 and I needed to upgrade the RAM to increase speed so I went to Best Buy and I upgraded to the maximum specs of 8 gigabyte. I nearly doubled my speed on this laptop I am satisfied with this upgrade and I am currently looking for an upgrade for the CPU if any. I gave it a four out of five because of the speed increase however my computer is still a little sluggish in boot time(45s). Everything else appears great! :)

    I needed protection for my 15" Toshiba laptop for an upcoming trip. This was perfect. Right size, well padded, with enough room for my mouse, charger, and paper work. I had already purchased a Solo-Urban case at a different Best Buy (with terrible service) which did not have this model Insignia model in stock. Traded it in for this one, about the same price, but better quality, at a different Best Buy. Since I don't carry my laptop around much, this was great for the price.
