    Great laptop case!

    I've bought other great Targus laptop cases over the years and this one doesn't disappoint, either. I bought it for my daughter's Dell Inspiron 15 3000 Series 15.6" laptop and it fits like a glove. The outer zippered pocket is just big enough to hold the power adapter and a wireless mouse, without it bulging out too much. I wish it had a shoulder strap, and would have been willing to pay more for it, but my daughter loves the color purple and this was one of the few laptop cases I could find in purple, where I trust the brand and quality. The overall look is quite nice and refined--just touches of purple in the details rather than being an in-your-face all over purple, which I really like. The only little thing that bugs me is that we have a wireless mouse mini USB that we keep permanently on the laptop, and we have to consciously shift the laptop whenever we push it into this case so that the mini USB doesn't snag on the zipper when we're zipping up the case closed. Not a big issue, but it shows just how tight a fit the laptop is; again, we have a 15.6" screen, and it really fits like a glove with no room to spare.

    Great cover if that's all you need

    I needed a bag to hold my imac, cords, external drives, and related small cords. I knew it would be inside a larger backpack and that I would need to pull it out fast at the airport. The black and purple colors were exactly what I was in the mood for, and it seemed exactly fast and easy to slip in and out of backpack, so I paid for it (even though I thought it was overpriced.) I had to get a lot of new luggage and many bags overall for the same period of travel. This is one of the few that lasted. I put the external drives around the laptop in case that would add padding. The bag has a bit of padding already. Mainly, I am glad the zippers were easy to close and open fast and that I could stick all the accessories at same time. I used the carrying straps and I am surprised they held so far. It's been a perfectly suitable bag for my purposes. It has survived 10 airport travels and multiple uses in between.

    I was looking for something to protect my lap top while it was in my backpack or just when I had to take my lap top to school/ out and about. This is a really nice lap top sleeve because it does offer protection from dust, scratches and offers a little bit of cushioning. The pluses are that there is an extra zipper compartment that I put my lap top charger in and there are handles on the exterior of the bag, so if I just need to take my computer somewhere I can easily. The price is a little high for just a lap top sleeve, but if you can get it on sale or don’t mind the price then I totally recommend it. This lap top case will do what it is supposed to do but if you are planning to drop your lap top in this case or need a case that offers more protection, maybe this isn’t the case for you. I recommend this anyone in need of a nice simple case to protect your lap top.

    Perfect simple laptop carrier

    This is the bag that I bought when I also bought a new laptop for school. My observations of the bag so far are positive. The bag holds everything that is essential (power cord) plus the 15.6 in laptop. This is not the right bag if you want to hold more than that, like an extra mouse. I like the material the bag is made out of. It seems durable enough. I live with a cat (not mine). The cat is friendly, but if I leave my laptop bag on the living room table and the cat gets on the table, he will eventually try to use the bag like a scratching post. I stop the cat immediately when I see/ hear him do this, thinking he will ruin my new bag. Well, after that happening twice, the bag still looks perfectly fine, just like new.

    Lightweight, slim, roomy, fits laptop, lap fan, cords, pc pen, mouse and pad, cell phone, and i think we sqeezed a book in. I dont reccomend over stuffing of course, but for reference and over all wear and tear it held up to the task. Washes easily. We have traveled with it. So far it has kept everything dry and dust/sand free. And safe from loss or damage.

    My Targus Pulse laptop sleeve has an updated & fashionable look, which I’ve received compliments on. I have dropped it, fit it into tight places when packing & spilled coffe on which surprisingly ... rolled off and not soaked in. I believe the neoprene material is a strong protector from bumps, scratches and of course, the elements. What would be an improvement is a Body Strap, when your hands are full. Good Product for the protection of my laptop.

    By the way, my name is not Chris, Best Buy just won't let me change it. I bought this bag because I wanted something to put my new laptop in (duh). I'm a chick who likes something pretty, so when the guy helping me grabbed a plain black sleeve with no handle, I told him he must not know a lot of women, put that thing back and grabbed the pretty purple one with thicker lining, an extra pocket for chargers, and it had the handles to make it easier to carry. And if you're a guy who can't be seen with purple, don't worry, they have them in black too. ;)

    I came into Best Buy looking for a bag I could put my brand new 12.9 inch iPad Pro tablet into to be able to carry it around. The tablet is huge and not easy to carry. I was a bit worried I would not be able to find what I was looking for, or be able to find something affordable within my budget. I found both in this bag. It was made to carry a laptop but works well for what I need it for. Love that it has a well stitched, secure strap for carrying and a front pocket to hold charging cords. Seems like a great product!

    Nice laptop carrier

    This is a nice looking laptop carrier. It seems like it will be pretty durable and last a long time. My only concern, which is obvious just by looking at it, is that the carrier is not made to offer much protection for the laptop. There is a little padding, but not enough to protect it from being dropped or similar abuse. Also, there isn't room for storing much more than the laptop. All those things were obvious before I bought it, so they aren't surprises, but I are worth mentioning in case you are buying it online.

    Got this for my daughter's Chromebook for school. The quality is great and the price is reasonable. Some of the other brands were overpriced and didn't have handles. It's got plenty of room and the handles are great so my daughter can easily carry it with her at school. She loves the purple touches too so very pleased with this purchase.

    Great Laptop Case

    I have had this case for almost a year now and completely love it. I use it 5x a week toting from work to home and it is still in perfect shape. I rarely write reviews but this case is so handy and gets so many compliments I had to share! I wanted a simple case that looked good. I love the purple details and the front pocket on the front holds all my office items. This is a great buy if you need a case for your laptop.

    My daughter was going out of town. We didn't own a laptop bag for her. Its simple not expensive. Got the job done. It padded but not overly. Doesn't offer huge protection like a hard case would. But for the price and what was needed, it worked fine. Has small pockets. I was able to store the charger no problem. Slim design simplistic.

    Good Bag But Not So Roomy

    This is a great bag for your laptop (at a good price) and some basic items - power cord, wifi extender, maybe a mouse if you use one, but there's very little room for anything else. I like it as it is compact and easy to travel with, but if you've got lots of dvds or cds or several cables in addition to the basics listed above, get a bag with more pockets and room. Well made and is holding up to my abuse well.

    Overall is a great little bag. If fits my lap top like glove. The only thing is that when I was choosing it at th store, all of them had a slightly defect on the stitching around the handles. I always ensure my bags have excellent stitching from the area that will be used to carry them. After going through all of them I found one that was ok. I would've also liked to have a shoulder strap which this one doesn't come with one.

    Nice Sleeve, Nice Price

    This laptop sleeve is pretty nice, and the price is even nicer. I'm not sure how, but BestBuy actually has a better price than most local competitors and online shops. The sleeve seems to be pretty durable and provides a reasonable amount of protection for your laptop. The stitching appears to be good, and looks like it will stand up to a fair amount of abuse. At the price, I don't think you will find a better product.

    I purchased the Targus sleeve based on my son's recommendation. Protection was my first priority. The neoprene material and padding does a great job of keeping my laptop safe. Size and weight were important also. The sleeve holds my laptop and office papers/files comfortably. Last but not least is appearance. This sleeve works like a briefcase inside. Outside it's stylish ans fun! Happy with my purchase.

    I just purchased a laptop for my wife and I knew that the last thing that she wanted was a bulky carrying piece. I found this gem at the store. It was sleek and accessorizes well enough for my wife's taste. The pricing of it was an instant bonus. Great product that met the need. Be warned that this is not a carrying solution for extra peripherals, nor is it intended to protect your laptop.

    It's a nice bag/sleeve for the price. It fit my Lenovo good. Not always sure about the size when you order online. Slim looking yet has room in a pocket on the outside. Its seems to be sturdy enough and I like the way it looks, its a black bag trimmed in a pretty purple color. I ordered online and picked up in the store the next day. I feel it was a good purchase and would recommend the bag to someone else.

    I had been carrying my Chromebook around in my backpack for about a year and started really feeling bad that I wasn't protecting it. I was worried that if I got a case it would be too bulky or a pain to carry around but this is great. I am so happy with this case. It matches my backpack and I've even stopped carrying the whole bag around all the time and just carry this case.

    I waited 8 months to write this review because I tend to destroy laptop bags and backpacks. This one has held up great! I have a square edged PC which didn't fit exactly so the zip and steams stretch a bit. I was worried it would rip. Nope. I have also had minor drops and spills and the outside pocket has protected my phone as well! I only wish they made it in different colors.
