5.0 out of 5 stars Fits my HP g7-1365dx and peripherals very well, March 16, 2012
I purchased this carrying case along with my HP g7-1365dx in late January, and have been making daily use of it since then. So far, it's served admirably.

The case has sufficient storage space for my laptop plus virtually all the equipment and peripherals I've obtained for it. Usually, I carry:

- the g7-1365dx itself;
- a Targus laptop table (non-powered) that I've owned since 2004 and used with all my previous laptops;
- the AC adapter for the computer;
- a USB mouse;
- a second (external) DVD writer;
- two 500GB external hard drives;
- a media card reader (since the laptop can't read xD cards, I had to get a USB card reader);
- a USB port hub.

I also have a Canon LiDE flatbed scanner and a Wacom pen tablet that I don't usually tote around. If I did, I'd probably have to leave the laptop table at home, but then again, in circumstances where I was using the scanner or tablet, I probably wouldn't need the table anyway.
Under normal circumstances the bag is roomy enough to carry all of the above items which are "standard" parts of my laptop kit, plus manuals, software DVD's/CD's and various papers and doucments. The padding is quite good and the laptop computer, the most important (and expensive) item of equipment, fits snugly into its compartment without shifting; there's an extra strap to fasten it into place but so far I haven't had to use it. There's also a zippered compartment on the side for cell phones.

I have a couple of issues with the bag in that (1) there aren't any rubber "feet" on the bottom of the bag as on some other Targus models, so that you have to lean the bag against something or secure it otherwise and (2) the front clasp isn't very adjustable so that the front flap always looks kind of loose. However, neither of these problems is significant enough IMO to warrant deducting a star, just enough to remind readers that no product is ever truly 100% perfect.

Carrying cases and bags for 17" laptops are still not always as easy to find as they should be, so this item is well worth your consideration.
