    ROLLING READY

    In The Beginning... The Legend is told there was MAN... Well Yes !! Let's just add MAN POWER!!! Therefore what's not to Love about this Rolling Laptop Briefcase. I was foolish at first to pursue even attempting to carry my first laptop in a laptop backpack, it was overpriced, heavy and bulky.. What was I trying to prove. That backpack look grew way to juvenile for me. Which was why in my second laptop investment. I bundled up my purchase with the Targus M.R.L.C. It changed Everything in My Professional Life. I Love the light weight wheels making it easy rolling. With any sort of travel , not limited to it's easy pulling flow. The Classic Black color and design gives a great designer look that appeals to any fashion style. It's also easy to function, plentiful in compartment storage, and great padding to secure and protect the longevity of transporting a laptop computer. I'm very comfortable in addition whenever traveling by plane and using the Targus M.R.L.C. as my carryon. I just atop it with my purse, placing all my important devices and personal items at reach.. TALK About Woman POWER!!! Talk About ROLLING READY..!!! Have Fun-It's A Great Investment...

    Too heavy, poor interior construction

    I guess you get what you pay for; this bag was on closeout sale and should be discontinued. It is big enough to hold three laptops or a laptop, papers and clothing. But, at 5-1/2 lbs empty, it is too heavy and at 17 x 15-1/2 x 9 it is too big to ride under coach class airline seats. (Overhead rack only) It has two zippered compartments (which become three counting the internal laptop bag) which are really flimsy fabric and connect together at the bottom! Put something small (such as a mouse or power cord) in one compartment and it is just likely to be found in the other compartment. It also has a small zippered external pocket which is configured for pens and so forth but is too small for 8-1/2 by 11 papers. I am comfortable with the exterior ballistic nylon construction (I have a ballistic nylon bag that has lasted twenty years)but have no confidence whatsoever that the zippers or thin interior dividers will last long, although it is really too soon to tell about long term survivability.

    Telescoping Handle needs Recall!

    Posted
    Border49er

    As someone who needs to "roll" an office around, vs. carrying it, I need a dependable roller bag that is reliable. Up until the telescoping handle failed - liked the bag pretty much.Targus needs to add like a 'button" or some access so the user can get to it and "unjam it". Bag has a Lifetime Guarantee on it -- so I guess I am about to find out if Targus supports its products, or doesn't. Seems most people complaining are commenting on the handle. Without the availability to roll the bag around, due to weight, it is pretty useless. I have my laptop in it and portable printer and a few files. If I have to carry it, it would weight about 40 pounds - not able to do that for any "distance" - bag is thick side to side (good thing when rollable - bad thing if I have to carry it - awkward). If you buy one - be sure to ask the store to put it in writing you can return it / trade for another if the handle blows.

    Great rolling bag for the everyday work or travel

    Great price. super spacious inside. I use it everyday for work because the laptop case w/ shoulder strap didn't work for me. Between the laptop, files, paperwork etc. it was to heavy just to carry around. front pocket I have business cards, post-it notes, notepad, 2 pens, a calculator plus I also put my keys and badge id and still have more space for other things. 2nd pocket I put my laptop, files, paperwork, notebook, and still have more space for a couple of other paperwork. and in my 3rd pocket I just carry my laptop charger and cellphone charger and a pair of flat shoes when I am wearing heels for work just in case.......and again..........more space for other stuff. super happy with the bag.

    It's a good laptop case for a large laptop.

    I had this brand case for 6 years before the telescopic handle broke and could not be repaired. My new case is almost identical but for 2 differences that are not for the better: 1) the telescopic handle is inside the case, so I can't zipper the back section if the handle is extended; on the previous bag it was on the outside. 2) the flat zippered compartment on the front of the case used to have 2 zipper-pulls so it could be zipped and unzipped from the top middle to both the left and right sides; on the new one there is only one zipper-pull so you can only zip it from one side; that causes small items to fall out of the side that's open. All and all, it's the best I could find for the size of my laptop, but I was disappointed by those 2 changes.

    I have been looking for a wheeled laptop bag that was big enough to carry all my work stuff and a jacket or change of clothes, but small enough to fit under ALL airline seats (tall order I know). This bag holds everything, and will fit under the middle seat of Southwest airplanes (only airline I've flown since getting the bag), but not the window or aisle seats. I also wish it had more compartments so everything didn't fall to the bottom. I would like to not have to unpack my bag to get my mouse or cord out. It is also a little heavier than I'd like, but I knew that when I purchased it.

    I bought this as a Christmas present for my dad. He is a professor and he flies a lot, so he needs something large and solid to transport his computer, books, and papers. My mom purchased him something similar a few months ago which was smaller and cost $30 more. He was so excited when he received this bag. He moved everything over almost immediately. Rolling Laptop bags can be incredibly expensive. The price was great. Its not fake leather, so it doesn't look fancy, but that was not important to him. It definitely looks nice enough though.

    I have to carry 2 laptops and 2 iiPads for work and this bag is perfect for it. It has two sippered sections so I can get the two iteames each in it’s own spot. My only complaint with the bag is that the pulling handle is the first to go out on it and usually in about a year, you can no longer pull the handle up or bring it down without pusing in the little buttons on the handle near the middle of the collaspible bars that hold that handle there. Great bag tho and a good price

    The product was bought to help carrying all those books and homework for back to school. The unit is well built with better zippers and overall layout then it's counterparts. Overall happy with the product, I would suggest buying a sleeve for your laptop to help protect it inside the case. The case offers protection from the outside, but doesn't offer "protective padding" as I would like given the price point of my machine. Overall a good buy to reduce strain on you body, or if you suffer from injuries like myself.

    When I checked this bag out at a Best Buy store it felt like it was well built and that it could take running through an airport without the pull-up handle snapping, as my previous bag did. The price was the main reason why I decide to purchase this bag. The wheels make it easy to pull the bag and there is so much room. I was able to pack my laptop and all the cords as well as pack the two binders that I brought back with me from the conference I attended. Very easy bag to use.

    What A Laptop Carry Bag

    What a wonderful surprise to find such a quality laptop carry bag ("Targus") for so a low price. Stands up on its own, has slip over luggage attachment strapping, pull up roll away handles, with lots of interior room, and separate compartments. The construction of this Targus bag is totally solid. Very nice looking too, and I am sure that it will be totally cooperative getting me through the airport security lines. And, once again the price is unbeatable for what you get. What a great find at Best Buy.

    Adequate product but not extremely durable

    I have had three of these cases - mainly because they are the main product stocked in several different stores for rolling laptop cases. This particular brand and model, while providing a reasonable price, is not very durable and will only last about a year before needing to be replaced. Be prepared for numerous issues from the handle telescoping feature locking or jamming to the wheels tearing or falling off. A year's worth for the price is not unreasonable.

    Great Rolling Laptop case for a heavy large laptop

    The price was right. The case is sturdy and moves easily. My old heavy large screen laptop fits in the case, as well as all my chargers and Wi-Fi equipment, tablets, pens and pencils. I can also put in any jackets or sweaters I may need. I'm really happy with the case. I can carry or roll it which is great.

    Rolling Office

    It is a compact rolling case. It has three drawbacks: 1) the back support only has a small layer of vinyl that can be removed to expose the handle mechanism, 2) the handle is firm but can feel flimsy since there is no solid back panel, and 3) the front zipper pocket needs two zippers. The pros are: 1) lightweight and compact, 2) the computer case is in the front zipper pouch to prevent breakage, and 3) easy to handle/ quality materials.

    Perfect rolling laptop bag with plenty of room. I am able to put two laptops, an IPad, and all charging cords plus books or files necessary in the two compartments. The front pocket has lots of room for essentials; such as pens, pencils, sticky notes, business cards, etc. This bags lets me put everything in one place rather than carry two or more separate bags. I love the wheels!

    This is a great product for the work environment. It is very mobile and it has several different compartments to allow you to store and carry many personal as well as business items between work and home. I love the look and style of the product and it is very durable and has great quality considering it was not very expensive to purchase.

    Very bad Handle

    Grazzia

    I bought this item 3 months ago and now the handle is stuck and cannot pull it up. The handle always gave me problems pulling it up and down but now it completely gave up. Not worth the hassle - especially not if it will give up with 3 months of use! Oh and for the note, I work in an office and roll the laptop case about 100 feet per day - not like I abuse it.

    I'm a commuting professional and graduate student, and I kept breaking my shoulder bags, so I got this bag and never looked back! I can put my MacBook Pro laptop (the largest one), textbooks, my iPad, and my planner in there and still have plenty of room. The front part is also very compartmentalized which is great for pens, pencils, chargers, etc. Overall, it's a great bag and very convenient.

    I was tired of traveling with a backpack, so decided to switch to this laptop case, and it has work great for me. Plenty of space for laptop, documents and other devices you need to carry on. It has a minor flow on the design (front pocket), but in general is a great product for the price.
