    Briefcase/Laptop carrying bag

    I have a brand new HP Pavilion Laptop with a 17.3" screen display and finding a laptop bag/carry case big enough to accommodate my laptop WAS NOT an easy task! There were only 2 options that were capable of accommodating my 17.3" screen: a) a large "purse-style" bag about the size of an extra large beach bag and available only in loud and obnoxious colors, and b) a "student-style" backpack with a built-in pocket/sleeve in which to slide your laptop with a Velcro strap across the top of the sleeve to secure your laptop into the sleeve. While these options may be perfect for some people, neither option was right for me. I already carry a purse which is approximately "medium sized" every day, everywhere I go (and because my purse contains almost anything one might need when away from home, it has a fairly hefty weight to it), so the last thing I want to do is to carry around a second purse which is even bigger (a lot bigger) everyday. Especially one that is obnoxiously colored. Additionally, there is very little to no padding in this style of bag with which to protect your laptop. For these reasons, this option wasn't for me. The other option ("student-style" backpack) was somewhat better but still not really the right option for me. It was high quality and the backpack itself was water resistant. There were 2 main compartments in the backpack. The zippered compartment in the back half had a sewn-in padded sleeve in which to slide your laptop with a Velcro strap to secure across the top of your laptop to ensure that it wouldn't be moving around inside the backpack or fall out if the backpack if it were fall over while opened/unzipped. Then the zippered compartment in the front half of the backpack had all the components of a standard (large) student backpack including a smaller zippered pocket on the very front. While this backpack provided a little more padding than the "purse-style" bag, one of the drawbacks was that while the laptop sleeve securely held up to a 17.3" screen display, it was a tight fit. So much so that once my laptop was secured in the sleeve, the zipper was difficult to zip and the fit was so tight that the zipper scraped/scratched the top edges of my laptop. Plus, I really don't have any need or use for the front backpack portion. Both of these options are big enough to hold a 17.3" (and these 2 styles were the only options I found as it is extremely difficult to find bags big enough to hold the 17.3" screen laptop) but neither option really had what I need in a bag. After comparing these options with a sales associate, he knew that neither was really what I was looking for and he agreed that bags that hold the 17.3" screen were hard to find as he himself struggled to find one for his personal laptop of the same size. Then he said that there was 1 "messenger-style" bag that Best Buy usually carries that was big enough to hold my laptop but that it appeared as though they were out of them in the store and he offered to order one for me. I thanked him but said that I really needed something that day. He paused for a moment in thought and then said he had seen 1 or 2 of the bags in question stashed somewhere in the back where they didn't belong but that that had been the day before and he wasn't sure if they were even still there. After spending approximately 15 minutes or so looking in the back, he came back out to the sales floor where I was waiting and produced 1 "messenger-style" bag. He said that it was the last one that they had. It was professional and discreet in appearance, nicely padded for protection, had several interior and exterior pockets for accessories, a comfort padded shoulder strap and was made by a very well known brand name with a great reputation for making high quality luggage, briefcases and "messenger-style" bags. AND, it came with a 3 year warranty. It was EXACTLY what I was looking for!! I bought it right then and have used and loved it everyday since then. I have had other laptops and other bags but none of my previous bags were anywhere near the quality nor functionality of this Samsonite. If you have a 17.3" screen laptop, then this bag is a must-see. It has turned out to be everything I wanted and then some. I highly recommend it as being the very best option for this size of laptop.

    Terrific Slim Profile for Traveling

    If you are looking for a slim profile laptop case this is the one. The neoprene type material feels great and I would guess it is someone what water resistant. Roomy enough to fit my OMEN 17.3" laptop. It includes a pocket inside to carry a tablet. The pocket consists of only nylon material so there is no other protection between your laptop and tablet. The case lacks anywhere to carry any paperwork. This being noted, it is not really suited for business use. The font pocket holds a regular size mouse and power supply. Other than equipping the inner front pockets with slim hardware, there is not much other room. Hardware seems it will stand up to plenty of use. The case was designed to be slim and a so, stands up to its description. Overall I am extremely satisfied with my Samsonite Laser Pro carrying case.

    Padded Computer Bag

    I purchased this bag for my son to transport his computer and peripherals from base to base when he was starting out in the military. After two years, it's still going strong and has stood the test of time. There were a number of bags to choose from, but this one best accommodated a l5-inch laptop, mouse, headphones and cords with room to spare for some file storage. The shoulder strap is comfortable and seems to stay in place without slipping while in use. It's sturdy and well padded, something that immediately drew me to it. This was a great purchase and I'd definitely recommend it for attractive and functional storage and use.

    Really good briefcase for large laptop

    Needed a briefcase for a 17 in Alienware gaming laptop. Much to my dismay, there weren't many cases that could accommodate the size of the laptop even though they were built for 17 in laptops. Came across this and it worked well. Reasonably priced, slim and not bulky looking. Only wish the external zipper compartment were a little more spacious. The power adaptor for this laptop is huge and it's a tight fit that causes an unsightly bulge. Also wish that the shoulder strap support were metal rings - though very well made, they are plastic. Hence the 4 stars instead of 5. Overall very happy with purchase.

    This rivaled the more high-end cases at the store that cost much more! It was a quality leather-like case with space and protection for everything in a slim design. The laptop case was really a perfect size for any laptop, a feature that I couldn't find among comparably prices alternatives. Our larger display laptop was cushioned well with room to spare. Pockets easily accommodate a mouse, mouse pad, cords, noise canceling headphones, and a file folder, but could even hold more. The shoulder strap also is sturdy and comfortable, making the bag easy to carry when full. Overall, a really well designed case with features that make it a stand out!

    From the stitching to the handle, this is excellent for toting around a large laptop. I carry an Alienware 17.3" gaming laptop in it, and it barely fits. Keep in mind when buying this that, if you have a 17.3" laptop that's large, you won't have room for much else. I can barely squeeze my mouse/mouse pad/AC adapter in the case; it's a tight fit. Overall, however, this is a great case!

    I like it but it could of use more padding I had my laptop in the bag on my passenger seat and stupid me I go around and open the door and the laptop fell out not more then 2 feet and it only hit the corner but it messed up my laptop a bit on the corner the zipper part now wont open now with one hand. When I get to it the place where It landed I have to now hold the side and pull it hard a bit the rest of the way. Anyway there is space for a charger a few usb drive and my wireless mouse with the mouse pad and my xbox one adapter for windows.

    My husband has a very old laptop, for which we could not find a battery. He used it for his golf league and had to do a lot of manual calculations while the lap top was not in use. To make along story short, we finally found the right battery, but he needed a convenient way to take it, as well as many other items, with him to the golf course. This case was the perfect fit.

    Great case, but definitely SLIM

    I'd been looking for a good case for my 17" laptop and having a hard time finding one that would suit. This one is great - the construction feels solid and the strap is heavy enough to feel substantial - I don't feel like it's going to break on me. The zippers are large and heavy also, a fact I appreciate. It is, however, definitely a slim case. Don't expect to get much more than your laptop inside. I'm able to cram in a wireless mouse as well, but that's about it. All in all a great product and an awesome buy.

    Bought to take my new laptop between the office and offsite. Using everyday. It is cloth but shows no signs of wear. I haven't travelled yet but can attach to a travel bag, which should be more convenient than walking around the airport with a laptop hanging from my shoulder. It also looks like a professional bag for an IT guy. I like this much better than a backpack.

    The Perfect Bag for a 17" Laptop

    I am so pleased with this bag! My previous bag was very bulky, made to hold a lot of stuff besides the laptop. At the time, I thought I needed to be able to carry a lot of office type stuff with me. Turns out I don't, and it was bulky and heavy. This new one is perfect. Has just the right amount of space, and it does have a sleeve if you wanted to carry an iPad, too, although I haven't needed that.

    I have a fairly large laptop that fits perfectly inside of bag. Bag has some cushioning although I wouldn't make a habit of dropping it. Strap is adjustable so it allows bag to ride at different levels which is nice. Don't want to use the strap, it comes with two handles that seem well constructed for what it is. I haven't put it through a lot of use yet so will update if needed but if you want a solid laptop bag at affordable price, consider this one.

    This bag looks sharp and it does the job. It's made from a thicker, more durable, spongy material than what a lot of laptop sleeves are made from. I wanted something smaller, than my old, clunky laptop bag, but it can almost be too small. It has one, large main pocket, with a smaller, but still substantial pocket on the side. It's the perfect size for a laptop and some papers, but it bulges a bit if you also choose to transport a charger or mouse in the bag.

    Good quality. Reasonable price. Thin and lightweight. Two sided zipper closure on top opening (nice). Fits my 17" HP laptop perfectly. Nice cushioned carry handles and removable shoulder strap. Inside pocket doesn't zipper but it holds the power cord separately from the laptop. If your going to carry papers, they will be next to the laptop. No separate folder for papers but I don't need that. Glad I picked this one!

    I needed a laptop case to go with the 17" HP notebook that I was getting ready to purchase. The case is padded and feels sturdy enough to protect the laptop in transport. The laptop fits perfectly & the front zipper pouch is roomy enough for paperwork & charging cord. Best Buy even discounted the price of this quality case since it was purchased at the same time as my laptop and printer. I'm well pleased.

    I bought a new 17" personal computer and my old Samsonite roller bag is not long enough to accommodate new computer. Found this case after internet search, saw it at Best Buy, purchased it. New computer fits snuggly with enough padding to protect whole computer, yet easy to retrieve computer out of case. Storage space for files, pens/pencils are nicely arranged and convenient to use. Hand and shoulder straps are padded reducing aches.

    Nice padded case I would call it more of a sleeve than a case though but it does have a nice padded strap for shoulder carry. There is a front pocket available to hold a few items. The case is good for providing adequate protection to my 17" Dell laptop and allows me to haul a few cables and and an 9.7" iPad along. Not much room for anything else but great for getting from A to B and has the classic Samsonite quality.

    I bought a 17 inch HP laptop. It was hard to find a case to fit since actually larger than 17 inches. This is an excellent, sturdy briefcase to put laptop in. My laptop fit perfectly and I had enough room for the cord and mouse. Very pleased with briefcase so I bought a total 3. One for me and my 2 children!

    The last time I was traveling by airplane, I was forced to check my bag. My computer was inside and my screen got shattered. I decided to never have that happen again and I bought this lovely Samsonite Pro Slim Briefcase. It is well made and my large laptop fits neatly inside. The price was reasonable. Now, while traveling, my laptop will always be by my side.
