Product Description

The Alienware Orion M18x Messenger Bag’s heavily-padded main compartment is specifically designed to accommodate the Alienware M18x laptop. A secondary compartment makes it easy to organize your files and documents, while the front accessory pouch contains an MP3 player pocket with headphone outlet, a spot to store your mouse, and an array of pockets to hold everything from pens to CDs to plane tickets. The thick-padded straps are ergonomically designed for comfort while the ventilated back panel helps keep you cool.

The Mobile Edge Alienware Orion bags have everything that you would expect for a high end laptop messenger bag . . . lots of storage pockets, pen holders, card holders, flash drive pockets, etc. Unfortunately, the bag fails in its primary purpose: portability of the Alienware M18x.

The M18x is one of the largest and heaviest laptop computers on the market. The M18x fits snugly into the messenger bag. Unfortunately, the manufacturer does not appear to have strengthened the stitching to enable the bag to support the weight of the M18x and power supply during routine travel. I purchased my M18x in August 2011 along with the messenger bag. The first messenger bag lasted about 2 weeks before the shoulder strap separated from the bag due to its inability to support the weight of the M18x and power supply. I returned the bag to Amazon and received a new one. The new bag lasted about 3 weeks before one of the carrying handles snapped off while I was going through airport screening. I have now returned this second bag to Amazon and am seeking a replacement bag for my M18x.

Unless the manufacturer strengthens the stitching to accommodate the M18x and power supply, stay away from this bag.

When I first bought this I was ecstatic. It has all the pockets and organization that I expected and needed. I travel a lot for work so the whole scan fast thing is a must for me. Unfortunately this also means that I use it all the time. And that's how the shoulder strap broke off while walking through the airport. Even worse, this happened about 4 months after I bought the thing. I even tried just carrying the thing by the handles after that. Now (about another 4 months later) even the handles are breaking off of it. When I pay for quality I expect just that. I guess all I really payed for was that little alien head on the front. And I payed too much for that. Don't waste your money.

This bag is horrible. The handles broke after a month of use. The shoulder strap is still in tact--but barely. I was led to believe that this bag was made for the Alienware 18-inch laptop, but clearly the quality is NOT up to par. DO NOT BUY THIS BAG! I am very disappointed to learn that I will only get a partial refund when I return this bag. :( GRRRR!!

After only three months of dealing with mobileedge and HP I once again have a working laptop and a new bag. I wouldn't have had to deal with Hp if my laptop didn't break partly due to the poor construction of the bag.

I had no idea how poorly their laptop bag was constructed until after comparing it to some other name brands, and other quite cheap bags.

The problem is not the quality of the materials but failure of design on the various points which will carry the weight such as the shoulder strap connections, shoulder-strap and from what I read the handle itself. I would be less upset if this had occurred after 12 - 18 months, but less than four weeks?

If you do much travel or have an 18" laptop then the current M18x is not for you. Or to put it another way, it is like a high performance sports car with safety belts made of string cheese.

I love this bag it fits my M18x perfectly and has plenty of room for my accessories and documents. I have gone through TSA inspection points at several airports both in the US and abroad and have only had to zip open the case and lay it flat on the inspection belt. It also has a great pass through pocket that lets me place it on my roller bag, that laptop is heavy approx 18 lbs with the power supply, I rather roll it than carry it.

My husband has a rather large ASUS X550CA-DB51 15.6-Inch Laptop laptop and desperately needed a new laptop bag. The one he had was old and beat and not made for something as big and heavy as his new laptop. I read loads of reviews and Alienware seemed to be the best option for the money. (Plus, who doesn't want an alien head on their bag?!)

I was a bit concerned when I'd read a few reviews saying that the plastic rings were crappy but I think the company heard that loud and clear because our bag has metal (as do some of the other reviewers) so I think they updated the product. It has a plenty of space for his ASUS (which is much thicker than the average laptop) and the other pockets hold his other items securely. The padding is pretty solid, too. I wouldn't chuck it off a building or anything but he often keeps a handgun in the spare pocket and it doesn't press into the main computer space at all.

Overall, I would definitely recommend this bag. He has had it for a couple months now and just said again yesterday, out of the blue, "I really like this bag. Seriously- a good buy!"

I have a 17.5" gaming laptop (Sager 9380-S special edition with dual 780m's) that will not fit comfortably in most 17" - 17.3" laptop bags. This is a great looking until, it has *plenty* of pockets for things like power supplies, USB key drives, USB headsets, snacks, magazines, discs, and so on. The Checkpoint friendly unit feature is a transparent section where the agent can easily see the laptop and remove it if they wish to more closely inspect it.

This 18" Mobile Edge bag has been a great choice and works great for my needs. The shoulder strap is comfortable. I gave it 4 stars out of 5 since it does not have wheels or a handle extension for those who don't want to put 20 pounds of laptop + accessories over their shoulder.
