    Ideal bag for a smaller dimension laptop

    Overall, I like the look and features of this laptop bag. Only negative aspect is that my HP HDX 18 laptop BARELY fits into it, and can not secure the velcro strap to hold it in place. I was told it would fit, but when I got it home, I can barely get the zippers closed over the corners of my laptop. I literally had to shake the bag with laptop inside pocket to get it seated far enough in to close the zippers. I'm concerned the zipper will separate at the corners of the laptop. I would recommend the product, but only for a smaller laptop.

    Laptop Bags don't get much better than this

    If we ever get to a point where the homeless are carrying laptops in addition to cell phones, then the days of toting around old shopping carts are over because this bag can hold everything!! I own a Dell m6400 17" laptop that I carry around in this bag and it has definitely earned it's keep (the bag, that's - albeit the laptop too, but that's another review). I have had this bag for just over a year and it looks as good as it did the day I bought it. It has survived *almost* all the abuse I have thrown at it, including a very sudden maneuver and stop with my car which sent this laptop flying from the back seat up to my front passenger seat, into the dash, and onto the floorboard. The padding completely protected the laptop and everything that was inside stayed intact and in its place. Needless to say, I now strap in my bag with a seatbelt and throw the kid's carseat (with my kid in it) on the floorboard. JUST KIDDING!!! Jeez, I'm not that shallow!! :) The only "chink" I found in the armor of this bag is when one day I precariously set it on the edge of my desk and walked away. The bag tipped and fell end over end and landed upside down with the corner of the laptop crushing the zipper to the concrete floor. That zipper is the only spot where there is no padding and thus the zipper bent and was irrepairable (by mere mortals like myself) so I had to go get another bag. The lesson here is don't perch your bag in precarious positions with a laptop and 600 lbs of "stuff" in it because Murphy's Law will indeed kick in. By the way, the laptop is just fine. A minor cosmetic scratch where it crushed the zipper, but it still runs like a dream.
