Protects my 17" widescreen Toshiba laptop at a no-brainer price!,
This review is from: OGIO Brain Bucket Bag (Apparel)
This is really a laptop slipcase which you would insert into a larger bag while travelling, or you would use it for short trips in your car for example. I have looked at many laptop sleeves in stores. The brain bucket's padding is among the best. Perhaps only the Sumdex memory foam slipcase could offer more protection.
The brain bucket has quality construction and light, weighing in just 12 ounces! It fits my Toshiba Satellite P100 17" widescreen desktop replacement laptop perfectly and offers very good protection on all sides. The side pocket accomodates the Toshiba power supply, a slim binder and an APC UPB60 external laptop battery. It has a padded velcro devider to use with smaller laptops, but I wouldn't use it for laptops smaller than 15.4" widescreen. If you have a smaller laptop, consider the Ogio brain bucket mini. I like the fact that the bag is vented. With the brain bucket unzipped, you can use your laptop while it sits inside for added protection.
I would have given this bag a rating of 5 stars, but I deducted one star because it does not have a detachable shoulder strap. I would also have liked an additional side pocket - but that's asking too much.
