Top Positive Review

OMG, 12 years later , I still use this Targus case. It’s still in great condition and has stood the test of time. Everything about it says quality. The price is reasonable. 5 stars.

Top Critical Review

I wanted an inexpensive laptop bag, and I think I was a little too cheap (my fault). First, I bought this bag from an Amazon affiliate although I got it shipped Prime. The bag arrived on time, but it had a badge sewn onto the front flap for some online school. This was not mentioned or pictured anywhere in the product description. I felt like this bag was possibly a leftover from a promotion or giveaway for the school. I just didn’t think that was very cool. I decided to think on it for a day to decide what I wanted to do–whether to keep it & try removing the badge or sending it back to Amazon. Ultimately, I decided to cut the stitching & remove the badge. It only took a couple minutes to gently cut around the badge followed by wiping off the area with little Goo-Gone to remove the adhesive residue left on the bag from the back of the badge. If I hadn’t paid so little for the bag, I probably would have returned the bag to Amazon.

So the bag itself it pretty pedestrian. You get what you pay for. Nothing flashy inside or out. It does have plenty of little pockets & storage areas for some basic non-computer supplies, but again, you’re not going to be able to carry everything in your office in this bag. There isn’t much padding inside the bag so if you are constantly on the go with your laptop, you’ll certainly want a more rugged bag than this. I just needed something for the few times I’ll ever need to be mobile with my laptop. It’ll protect it from the elements, but I wouldn’t expect much protection for my laptop if the bag slipped off my shoulder & landed on the ground… However, I do like that the handles, clasp, & strap are all pretty solid & that it’s a lightweight bag. My 15.6″ laptop fits snuggly inside well & does not require any special effort to get the laptop in/out of the bag.

Customer Questions & Answers

The description is conflicting. Is this for 15.4 inch or 15.6 inch laptops?
Answer:

My laptop is a 2012 design with a 15.6 inch screen and it fits great and the case even gives me wiggle room inside. For today’s thin laptops it would work even better. The case has foam padding for front and back protection, but not side to side protection, where the clips go. The answer to your question is both will w??

Does the placement of the handle cause the clasp holding down the overhang to eventually break
Answer: Aren’t we all destined to break eventually?… It is very well made, and unless you are carrying a significant amount of weight I don’t think it’d be an issue.

The grip over the strap on top seems to be rubber, will it smell with a sweaty hand?
Answer: It’s not rubber, it’s plastic. No smell.

Does this have room for a macbook pro 15.6 inch with charger plus an external dvd burner, usb card reader and a book?
Answer: I would say it would have room for all of that…

It is basic but functional…

My dell g7 15 gaming has a 15.6″ screen but large bezels around the screen adding a couple more inches to it’s width. is there suff. breath. room?
Answer: The dimensions for the laptop compartment are as follows: 15.00″ x 10.00″ (W x H). It does not look like this bag will fit your laptop.
