I read a lot of reviews on this and other laptop cases before I made this purchase. A lot of reviews said that this case did not fit 15" laptops, but it actually fits my 15.4" Dell Inspiron 1525 (Width: 14.05"/35.7cm, Height: 1.00"/2.5cm front, 1.48"/3.7cm back, Depth: 10.08"/25.6cm). It's snug, but it's not like I want my laptop rattling around in the case. There are two side-by-side front pockets that can fit the power cord as well as a small wireless mouse. There is a flap that covers both the laptop compartment and the two front pockets. It closes w/ an adjustable plastic click closure. Additionally, there's a pocket w/ a velcro closure in the back of the bag for a few documents, maybe a 1-subject notebook. I don't like carrying a lot with my laptop, and this is the perfect case for me. This is a minimalist case that doesn't add much weight to the base weight of the computer, but holds everything that I need. There isn't a ton of padding, so I wouldn't recommend it for someone that travels with their computer a lot. However, as someone that brings her laptop between home and work, I think it's enough to protect the computer, given that you don't throw it around. The orange lining on the inside is a nice touch, and the adjustable cross-body strap is slim, but comfortable, and securely attaches to the body of the bag.

I've been using this bag for a couple of months and LOVE it! It is very well made and looks great. It's light and has enough room to carry some papers and a few other peripherals. I have a 15.4" Lenovo. The fit is snug. The design means that the laptop won't slip out - there's a sturdy clip-thingy on the inside under the flap. This also means that the laptop is fairly safe from rain damage.
I like that it's small enough that I can fit into my backpack along with a couple of books and head off to school. It's also sturdy enough that it can be carried alone using the strap ... and streamlined enough that it doesn't look like those great big lumpy standard laptop bags. Sure, this bag doesn't have as much padding as those bags, but it has enough so that the usual light wear that comes with frequent public transport use and general travel requires.
One thing that wasn't so clear before I bought it was that it has orange detailing on the inside. When the internal pockets are filled (for example with a cord and the usual extras.) the orange is visible. Normally, orange isn't my color but this actually looks really cool. Lots of people have complimented this bag.
