I recently purchased a Toshiba 15" laptop and wanted a case that wasn't too big, but would carry my laptop, power cord, and an external DVD/CD drive as well as some paperwork, files, etc. This case works perfeclty. It has a soft, padded section for the laptop which fits perfectly and the extra compartments hold my business cards, pens, my car keys attach to the internal spring loaded clip and a separate zippered front pouch holds a good sized DVD/CD external drive. I have all the storage I need, plus the shoulder strap is very high quality and comfortable. It even has a pouch on the back for a cell phone and it fits over, with a sleeve, the pull-out handle of any luggage so it can sit on top as a carry-on bag. They thought of everything with this bag and it's made out of heavy duty materials and seems very durable and well made. It will fit the thicker laptops with a HDD, mine has a SSD. There are really no cons to this product that I could find, especially this reasonably priced.
