    I bought it at a steep discount online and for $10 it's a good option. I saw it a few days later in the store for $100. No way I would every pay $100 for it. Decent construction and strap padding. Pocket in the front could use two, not just one zippers. It's a great backpack with lots of pockets, but price is the issue for me.

    Cousin Xa received a laptop for Christmas and needed a computer bag to carry it. This Targus bag turned out to the be best solution for a teenage boy. This bag protects his precious laptop while also giving him a swag appeal with the sleek, urban look and provides enough pockets/compartments to carry other essentials.

    I purchased this back pack for my dad so he could use it on a trip to NYC. It's lightweight and has lots of space and pockets. My dad enjoyed using it on his trip. Great to use as a carry-on for a flight. The material isn't heavy and thick as I don't believe it's primary purpose is to hold a laptop even though you could.

    I purchased this bag when it was on sale for $9.99. I use it for my Macbook air and ipad. I even have my external hard drive and dvd burner in the bag as well, and it has plenty of room to spare. The padding is sufficient and the straps are comfortable enough for the bag to be worn for an extended amount of time. I can't speak to it's durability in the elements, but so far, so good.

    I bought this backpack as a gift for my niece who is a Med student. She pends long days at school, so she needs to have water bottles and books with other school supplies, at the same time, she needs not break her back with heavy weight. She loves it bz it is lightweight, neutral black color that fits her outfits.

    i'm a manhattan commuter and always looking for a great (LIGHTWEIGHT) bag. i liked the simple looks of this one, so ordered it. it definitely fits the bill. super light and a nice, padded section for my laptop. pocket is sectioned off for phone/wallet/pens etc., with a pass through for corded headphones. canvas bottom also makes me feel this may last a while.

    This laptop is very light and probably not durable. I bought it cheap, and will use it for outings where there is a possibility that I might forget about it or it being ruined. I would not use this backpack to carry my laptop and papers on a day-to-day basis, but it might work if I were in a pinch.

    I bought it as a Christmas's gift for my brother and his feedback is pretty good. It will serve you well for some light duty back and forth to work or school. If you're a type of person to carry a load of hardcover books around campuses or heavy gaming laptops, this backpack will definitely fail your expectation.

    Well made but doesn't hold much

    This was a Cyber Monday purchase that had an unreal low price. The backpack is very well made, but doesn't hold much more than the laptop and a couple of books. It would not be for a student that has to carry a bunch of textbooks all the time. However, for someone that carries only the laptop and a book or two it would be great.

    I purchases this backpack when it was on sale for $10. One of the best investment, I would say. The bag has all the necessary pockets that you need when using it as a commuter's bag. It has multiple pockets to store a laptop, tablet, and charging cable. Its a light weight, entry level commuter bag.

    Got this during the Black Friday sale for $10 and it's well worth it. It holds my 15.6" laptop just fine and fits everything else I need on a daily basis, however, it does lack a lot of protection/padding. I have no problem keeping a Chromebook in here, but I wouldn't use it as my primary laptop bag.

    I got this backpack on Black Friday for $10. You can’t beat that price, especially with its compartments for a laptop and a tablet!!!! Now comparing the material with other laptop backpacks, it does feel cheap but it will last you a while. It is solid build for the price. I’ll say it’s up there with a $30 Jansport, it’s minimal and it will last.

    This backpack is great for transporting my computer and supplies. It is well padded and I feel that my computer is well protected. I like the numerous pockets and space to carry all the supplies I could possibly need.there are also two outside pockets that are perfect for a bottle of water.

    Targus did it right for a low priced low tech backpack. Perfect when you don't want to spend 40+ dollars but need good padding for your 13-15 laptop or iPad or tablet and good organizational pouches. Worth the price, grab one when are on sale and "bingo" you have your best Travel Backpack on the cheap.

    I brought this laptop backpack to give to my nephew as a gift. The backpack seems to be basic in design and the materials are decent. It doesn't seem to be the type that may last for a long time or would be able to carry heavy load. Overall, the backpack is decent enough for everyday use.

    For the Brand and for the offer price on black friday, we can get this bag. If it would have been the actual price I will not recommend this as it doesnt have much features. Laptop pocket didnt even have starp to tighten qnd secure the laptop. Just the pocket. Disappointed on that mostly.

    I bought this laptop bag when it went on sale at $9.99 pre-tax. Size and number of storage compartments are adequate, but it is quite lacking in the build quality (you get what you pay for). I'd say the backpack would be sufficient for lighter loads, I wouldn't carry a heavy or expensive laptop on it to be safe though.
