    Practical, Top Quality Product

    I purchased this case as a Christmas gift for our daughter based on experience with a similar ‘vertical’ model I have for my Dell XPS 13. The case is perfect for her new Dell 13.3 inch 2 in 1 notebook which has similar dimensions as my XPS 13. It has the same quality build and practical design as my vertical style case but with extra space. The larger size should be perfect for her peripherals and accessories, as she travels quite bit for her job. I’ve purchased a few Targus laptop cases over the years for my laptops and I can honestly say that all of them are top quality products—very durable, practical, and attractive. The straps and attachment points are solidly crafted and the nylon, water resistant material is top notch. I am quite sure our daughter will appreciate this case because of the ‘horizontal’ design which appears to be a purse. I highly recommend this product—it has is top quality, reasonably priced case.

    Don't buy when store's closing

    This is one of the few smaller cases that my Best Buy had available, which I was hoping would be able to hold my new iPad Pro 10.5" and a couple of other things. Unfortunately this is too big. And since the store was closing at the time of purchase, I was being rushed into making my purchasing decision. So, I had to quickly decide, if I want this case or another more expensive one, or a larger (cheaper one). Now, supposedly, Best Buy is going to possibly "deny" returns to the store. It's nowhere in the Return Policy that they can do that. And since Best Buy, made over $30.6 Billion in sales, I don't understand why they would do such a thing. They are ranked #1 on the Top 100 CE retailers. If the staff would listen to me, or allow me to comment on my orders, maybe they would understand why I've made returns.

    Excellent protection.

    I wanted a case that was light enough, but also tough enough to protect my investment. Good material, reinforced corners, and made to Military specs. I will say there are two things I would change on this... The first would be the shoulder strap, which is rather thin and twists around easily. Some may like that, though. The second is that although this has two zipper pockets on it, they are not expansion pockets. If you needed to carry your brick with you in this, you're out of luck. Same thing with a mouse. You could put a cell phone in the pocket, and that's about it. Anything thicker could put pressure on your notebook/tablet. Aside from that, the case really does protect it.

    Great protection for Mac book Pro

    The carrier case I purchased for my brother's Mac book pro was exactly what I was looking for. I bought it as a gift for my brother. He really likes it and said it has protected his Mac book pro from damage when dropped. In addition to protecting the Mac book pro, it looks great and not too bulky. I loved how the corners are reinforced but do not make it look ugly. This item is perfect for a person who is looking for a nice looking black case. Too bad they don't make them in different colors for those of us who like some pizzaz in a carrier. So move on if you're looking for something more colorful. It was a reasonable prize and the right size too.

    We bought this case for our laptop because we wanted something that would be durable enough to use while traveling. This laptop case went with us on our vacation and held up beautifully. I don't think there's even a scratch on it. The padding is sufficient to protect our laptop from small, gentle falls (dropping from the bed to the floor, riding in the car, etc). The pockets also provide adequate room for the laptop's charging cord, as well as a few other cords and the mouse. We haven't thrown the case around to test it or anything, but our laptop's been protected, and that's what matters. Overall, it's a sturdy bag that's worth the investment.

    Sturdy case for any 13" laptop

    This is a really nice case, durable construction. It has a small zipper pocket on one side and on the other side it has a pocked the width of the case but only about 1/2 the height. You can store a small notepad but not a larger one. I wish the case had a couple of pen holders and maybe a pouch for a flash drive. Seems so simple to add. With limited room for other things and no space for a charger, it is probably more akin to a sleeve than a shoulder bag, even though it does have the shoulder strap. Overall it will serve the purpose of getting my 13" Asus from one place to another safely. This thing looks like it will last!

    Good case but very minimal

    The case itself is very well designed and has excellent padding to protect the laptop. The only downside is that the side zipper pocket is quite small. For my MacBook Air, it provides enough room for the ac adapter and a magic mouse but that is about it. Having owned many laptops (most of which have larger power bricks) I feel that the adapter would stretch the pocket and stick out a considerable amount and would be at risk of getting bumped into things and possibly damaging the laptop. If you have a thin laptop and don't need to carry any extras, it is a good case. If you need to haul "stuff", get a larger case.

    This is a perfect hybrid between a carry case and a laptop sleeve. I use bag with the shoulder strap it comes with when I am travellling on the company campus. And I can choose to not use the shoulder strap and put this in my backpack when I want to take my laptop home. Fits: Very good for Laptop Models: Windows: HP Elitebook 13.3', HP Spectre 13.3' Apple: New Macbook Pro 13' and Macbook Air 13' Fits Accessories: Fits adapter, charger cable, flash drives, and lighting cable.

    This case comes is a great mix between a case and a sleeve. I love that it is thick and has rubber corners because I am known for dropping things. The inside is very soft. I stick it in my back pack and I'm good to go. It's slightly bulky compared to a sleeve but still sleek enough that it won't take up your entire back pack. I carry 3 notebooks, 2 folders for loose papers and a small book along with my laptop in my back pack and there's still some room. The small pocket holds my charger and there is a bigger pocket for anything else you need.

    Excellent protection for a 14" laptop

    There is extra padding on all four corners to protect your laptop from a drop or accidental bump. Doesn't guarantee there won't be damage if there is an accident but this bag certainly has the added precaution built in that may save a costly repair.. Also like the pockets that hold a mouse, charging cord, and external DVD drive. A few papers can also be carried inside the main pocket for a single carry item so you're off to do business. Despite the extra padding still has a small profile for a compact carry-all.

    We went to the store to look for cases that would fit our sons Lenovo Yoga 3 laptop (14") which is similar to the new Yoga 700. We were actually looking to buy the $30 one on sale. In deciding between that, a Swiss Gear (which I liked) and this one our son selected this one. It is a bit bulky but the laptop fits well--we were able to try it out in the store. This case also has a military grade approval so hopefully it does its job and protects the $1k laptop if it ever should fall. The only other minus, beyond the bulkiness, is the price.

    Excellent Case for Small Laptop

    Targus has good products in my opinion but I really like this case for my Apple 12" laptop. I like that it is compact, light and very sturdy. The ballistic nylon case is hardcore solid protecting the laptop. The main compartment holds my laptop along with a 8 x 12 notepad. It is secured by a solid zipper and magnetic catch. It has front and back pockets for extra's--mouse, charger, earphones, pens, etc. Very nice and good looking. Love it.

    Was happy until the zipper wrecked my Surface Book

    my Surface Book w/performance base slipped out of my truck onto the pavement and the only damage to it was caused by the zipper. if they put the padding under zipper, or just no zipper then my almost $4,000 laptop would be fine. Instead the zipper caused a hard point of impact that has caused damage to the headphone jack and the screen.

    I absolutely love this case, I had originally picked one out online, but when I went to pick it up it was cheap with little padding. I saw this one in the store and it was exactly what I was looking for. Not too big, and a quality product to protect my 2in1 laptop. The rubber "bumpers" are also great for extra protection. And it has 2 convenient zipper compartments to carry my cord, cordless mouse, flash drives, stylus, etc.

    A Really Nice Slipcase

    This is a really nice slipcase. I use it for my Microsoft Surface Book, and it fits perfectly. The quality is excellent, and the two zipper pockets are very useful. There are two things that I wish were different. I would have liked a choice of colors, and it would also be nice if there were handles for times that I don't want to use the shoulder strap.

    So far it is a great case for protecting my 14" Acer laptop. With that said, it cost almost 10% what I paid for the laptop, and that's ridiculous. It fits in a compartment in my back pack & is surviving many travels. I do like the 2 zipper pockets for accessories.

    I had just purchased a new laptop and wanted to make sure it was well protected. I also was going for a watchdogs 2 sleek and slim bag look. It fits my 14" machine snugly and the pockets give me a place for the charger and my external hard drive. It is also small enough to slip into your backpack or other larger bag if you prefer. I've been quite happy with this purchase.

    I did a lot of shopping for the right case for my work laptop and this one, though pricey has been a perfect fit. I can fit my laptop and 2 phones. The ability to quickly stow these items and get on the move is what I appreciate the most. Only drawback may be the strap is not the most comfortable but i can live with that. Highly recommend this bag.

    This bag is great. I bought it because of the corner bumpers and the padding. I couldn't figure out which one to get so then it came down to the little details, The extra protection from this one is why it won. I am not disappointed. It also has a very large pocket to hold my cords and extras and a long strap, which makes it even better.

    All things considered, it does what it's supposed to: keeps laptop dry from low levels of rain from commuting, has a few storage spaces that can add a strange shape to the otherwise sleek and flat dimensions, and protects my laptop from my inadvertent barbarisms. I haven't dropped it yet and don't intend to, so can't tell you what will happen. Sturdy design.
