I have a 17in HP laptop and it was nearly impossible to find a bag for it, let alone a properly padded one to protect the machine during travel. This bag fits the bill. I have traveled on the train and a plane with this one, and it kept my laptop safe; it fit under the seat like the airline required; it was easy to access for the security checkpoint; and the bag is roomy enough to hold extra items, which saved me having to check luggage (which now costs a ridiculous fee). You really cannot go wrong with this bag--even if you have a smaller machine, buy this bag. It looks great, it is sleek and easy to carry and has room for everything you will ever need, and then some. It is also versatile, having both handles to carry it like a briefcase, and a detachable shoulder strap.

Also, the image seems to have been corrected--the proper picture is displayed here. The backpack version isn't as nice and has "alienware" icons and name-branding all over it, which looks cheesy and cheap. This bag is really nice and looks professional--the Alienware icons are subtle and very minimal.

I love my laptop very much, I just wish it wasn't so heavy, I would not recommend for college.

Anyway, I bought this bag only because I was scared to buy any other bag for my M17x knowing how pricy it was, and imagining what could happen, I mean a strap being torn, not fitting properly etc.
This bag fits the laptop perfectly, it's very nicely padded, VERY padded, I mean it's so padded that when I pull my laptop out I place this bag behind me and it's like I'm using a fancy computer chair that was design to fit my spine. I over exaggerated there a bit, but it really has enough padding to keep your Alienware safe enough from simple accidents, I'm not saying it will protect your laptop if you lung it over a building, nor am I trying, but it's enough.

The bag itself isn't as heavy as it looks, actually when it was delivered, I was getting ready to pick up something that I thought was heavy but no, it's decent weight, but of course, when the laptop is placed inside, it gets quite heavy, at first you may think the same as me "Oh it's not that bad" after a while, you're like "Holy S---".

The first thing you may notice about the bag, well at least I did, was how HUGE it is, I honestly don't know why I thought it would be smaller knowing how large the M17X is alone. IT'S HUGE! The front side, the side with the logo is very bulky, but it suits its personality it also has that soft touch feel similar to the laptop. For some reason there are 2 zippers under that logo part, that I can't even pretend to imagine what to put in there, they seem quite useless, maybe a few bag of gummy worms or something.

It has a lot of room and a lot pockets to place things. The quality of the bag isn't the best. After using the bag for less than a week it started to fall apart. The shoulder strap pad ripped and fell off after only a day of use. Other seems around the bag a coming apart. For the price of the bag and how quick it started to fall apart I don't suggest this bag at all. This is one Alienware product I am very disappointed in!

Everything about the Alienware Orion Checkpoint Friendly Messenger Bag is great except for one small but very important problem: it needs reinforcement. I learned this the hard way, and I believe it's due to the nature of 17" laptops: they're typically much heavier than the smaller sizes. With only the laptop, a mouse, its power adapter and my Kindle in my bag, one week into ownership the strap broke. My laptop crashed to the concrete from waist height and needed $300 worth of repairs. The bag holds the laptop but does not offer a great deal of impact protection.

Dell's representative made it clear that they don't support breakage but 'just this once' would replace the bag for me. The first thing I did when I got the replacement was take it to a local shoe repair place. For a few dollars, they added extra stitching and a rivet to the square patch of canvas that holds the strap buckle to the bag (one on each side), and they overstitched the strap itself. This small adjustment was necessary and I've now had the bag for almost a year with no problems.

If you don't mind beefing up the straps at your local shoe repair, tailor, or luggage shop, the Orion Checkpoint Friendly Messenger Bag is a great buy: it looks interesting, it has generous pouches divided into three compartments, and it can probably hold just about any 17" laptop you've got. "Checkpoint Friendly" means that the laptop slips into a clear pouch and the section for it zips out in such a way that you can lay the bag wide open and flat on an airport scanner belt so it is easy to see. Not every airport pays attention to "Checkpoint Friendliness" because it's a set of guidelines more than a rule, so you may still have to take the laptop out and turn it on for your local TSA official. I haven't had this problem, and I suspect it's because they cover the clear pouch in enormous words reading "CHECKPOINT FRIENDLY".
