    Lots of compartments, durability not so good

    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.

    Meets the needs

    While it met my needs there are things that are just lacking. I have a 14” laptop and it just does not fit snug. There is also a spot for my iPad but it seems like there is not a lot of padding between the laptop and iPad and it makes me nervous. But I paid $10 during Black Friday so you can’t go wrong with the price.

    Needed a laptop bag. Tracked this bag on best buy website. Came on a best deal for thanks giving. Light weight laptop bag comfortable to carry. Great backpack with standard pocket systems. Easy access to supplies with it's front pocket and made with great material. For the price, this is a really good purchase.

    Good Backpack for Light Things

    I use this backpack for carrying a few light things during a day trip like a light jacket, small point and shoot camera, etc. While it can hold text books, I don't think it give s the back support to do this. It is a good bag to stash a few things to keep your hands free.

    I bought this after I bought my surface pro just because it is a great deal for a great price. Its big for surface pro but just right for a 15.6 laptop, durable and still has space in it for my personal stuff. I use this often for work.

    Stylish backpack but feels cheap

    This backpack has two separate dividers which is good folders and devices that you need to separate and/or protection. The rest are open spaces allowing you to store plenty of stuff. The zipper handle does not come with any zipper pull cord so it's hard sometimes to find the zipper handle which can be annoying.

    Basic But Reliable

    I've used a few laptop brands but Targus is the most I bought. It is reliable to protect the laptop especially if you travel and tend to drop the bag (well padded bottom, unlike others). Any price range of Targus is good. This is a basic bag and still quite useful. I trust my Thinkpad and Macbook Pro 15 in these.

    It’s a good black color backpack. Fits my 14” laptop, has room for other stuffs. Has small pouches to keep your phone and tablets/iPad. Like it good and is handy. Will use it more to see its durability. Will keep posted, but for now I recommend for the price paid

    Not bad if you get it on sale

    For a sale price of $10 it is a decent bag. Has three compartments and fits my 15.6 Dell perfectly. It is a bit snug, so it will not fit anything larger. As the other reviews mentioned, the zipper feels a bit cheap (especially since I'm coming from a North Face) so be careful not to get anything caught in the zipper.

    Best brand I've owned

    Targus is the strongest brand of laptop bags I've owned. It also have protective laptop compartment bottom (which is lacking in many other brands). Don't let the simple design fool you. I've used this brand for decades (none of them failed). Comfortable too. I use these for 15" heavy Thinkpad to 15" Macbook Pro.

    I love my new backpack. I purchased this on Black Friday for a very good price, well worth the wait in the long lines. It holds my laptop, iPad and other needed accessories with room to spare. It is comfortable and distributes the weight evenly. I'm looking forward to carrying this on my next trip.

    love this bag. I got it for an amazing price. But, what sets this apart from other bags is the weight. the bag weighs almost nothing. And yes, has a place for the laptop to be padded.

    The zipper for the main compartment broke after 2 weeks of use. Of course it's a day outside of my 15 days. I'm going to find out if I can get a refund.

    I picked this up when it was on sale for $10. I wouldn't personally spend more than about $20, but for the price I got it, it works perfectly. I would recommend this pack for anyone who is looking for a simple daily use computer/notepads bag.

    I bought this backpack for the times when I only want to carry my laptop and my tablet without all of the accessories. It is the perfect size to so just that, and it has met every need for this purpose. I got this for the Black Friday price of $10.

    The backpack is great and all the inner lining is well done. The backpack fit my 15" macbook pretty easily. Super good thanksgiving deal for $9 bucks. I am super happy with the purchase, but the reason I gave a 4 Star is because the bag does not have a clip to lock it around my chest.

    I purchased this bag during Black Friday and have been using it for a week without a problem. I carry this bag to work everyday with my laptop and did not experience any problems yet. This bag is light and has a lot of open compartments inside the bag for my other items to be held at.

    Good Laptop Backpack for casual use...

    This is a good laptop for casual use. With just one laptop and few accessories. Front pocket has some options to organize stuff ( i.e. Pen, notepad, Stylus etc.) Padding in sufficient but not great which is expected at this price point. Overall well worth the money. Again for casual use.
