Style Name: Carrying Case - New York
Pros:

Good looking in all surroundings.

Protects my computer very well.

Well made and durable ..great zippers.

Very roomy but not bulky. ...Room for several good sized books, in addition to folders, DVD/CDs and all the laptop "paraphenalia" (adaptor, cords, mouse, etc.)

Even has a little netting/pocket that folds out large enough to carry a one liter bottle of (Dasani) water!

Easily works as a carry-on for travel.

Cons:

Not the lightest case I've picked up.

No "feet". Sits on ground and can get wet/stain when set on any surface that is even slightly wet or muddy.

Handle, while it is surprisingly comfortable, it is a velcro thingie holding two handles together. Velcro tends to show "age" by picking up hair, hay and stuff, and it tends to hold less.

Phone pocket looks a little "cheesy" with the yellow phone symbol on it. (But.. Hey! it's removable!)

My job requires me to go from semi-formal (college classrooms) to casual surroundings (a barn at a zoo), and my "office" is where-ever I can set up my laptop. I needed something that would look good, wear well and carry a lot of stuff.

I didn't need to carry a backpack full of stuff, nor did I want to look that informal. I think carrying a backpack looks silly if you're wearing a suit. I didn't want the hassle or expense of leather. I'm not an executive, I sure don't want to look like one.

I do have stuff to carry though, more than just the laptop. Most cases were either too small, or too big and bulky.

This is the ideal case for me. Carries my papers, a couple of books, my water, my phone (occasionally) ...and best of all, it takes very good care of my laptop.

Style Name: Carrying Case - New York Verified Purchase
After much research...I got this bag.

Pros:

Reasonably light (3 pounds empty I think).

Reasonably sized (not as slim as my old bag...which had no padding)

Has a removable Accessory bag for my mouse and power supply (pretty spacious!). This was THE feature I wanted.

Lots of pockets/places to store things, lots of room for documents, pens, accessories.

Suprisingly easy to carry, either by handle or strap...Oddly more so than my unpadded older case. I guess it might be the padded handle and padded sides. It's comfortable to carry around.

Cons:

No dedicated "slots" to hold my 802.11g card, I stick it in one of the secured pockets. No big deal especially since My new laptop will have built in wireless.

No space to hold a large (I mean large) book, normal books should fit easily (a bunch of them actually).

I don't use or carry CD Disks with me, so that feature is pretty useless..but I guess nice to have.

This bag is just great. I got it for my Inspiron 9300. I was very limited on bag choices because of the 17" widescreen. When I found this bag I just loved it. Sporty design, especially since most of the bags look too business oriented.

Everything fits perfectly in the bag. Its made very well and features a lot of different places to store your accessories. I can put just about anything I need in there. Including wireless mouse, power adapter, cds, cell phone, water, some games, and whatever else i can think of.

I would highly suggest this product. It comfortable and easy to put all your computer supplies in with a great look. Must buy for 17" screens!

I needed a durable backpack for my notebook on my deployment in Iraq. I've been using it for over five months now. It has handle sandstorm and the harsh climate. I even modified to carry many of my military items including my rifle (hanging on the front d-rings). Thats an estimated weight of 50 lbs. and sometimes more. Not only I suggest this backpack but the whole entire line of Targus notebook bags since many of my co-workers actually have the same brand.

Style Name: Carrying Case - Los Angeles
Since the minute that I decided I wanted to be a screenwriter, I've carried my laptop with me almost everywhere: to the office, on trips, you name it. I've gone through three laptops in the last five years, and it seems like I've burnt through at least ten bags.

I've had my Targus CityGear for almost a year now, and it's weathered so well, it almost looks brand new. The strap - usually the first thing to go on my bags - is comfortably padded and still as sturdy as the day I clipped it on. The bag itself is comfy to carry, roomy, and light (about 3 or 4 lbs. empty), until you start adding equipment, books and the usual filler. There's plenty of space for all that as well - there's probably enough room in the three major compartments that you could even pack a change of clothes and toiletries, and still have room for all of your other gear.

The removeable cell phone case is a nice touch, but has a tendency to get tangled with the shoulder strap because of the position it's mounted. The bag itself doesn't open up to use as a desktop, and the pockets are not exactly cord-friendly. But those are small gripes. Most importantly to me, my computer fits snugly and safely in the middle of the pack, with thick enough padding to keep my precious safe from all the bashing around I tend to give it.

All in all, a pretty nice computer case for a pretty decent price. It won't dazzle the neighbors or co-workers like an expensive leather case, but who cares? For practical purposes, this version of the Targus CityGear fits my needs to a T.
