High Expectations Realized5/14/2009
I bought this because esthetic appeal was at the top of my list when buying a laptop bag, but it was the additional features that sold me completely. When I received this laptop case, the first thing I noticed was that you have to stuff it full to make it look as plump and smooth as it appears in the online photos. The fabric quality seems good though, however I haven't really had this long enough to give a full "durability" report. The plush lining is very soft and the notebook compartment snugly holds my 15.4" macbook (which I was relieved to find because I wasn't sure if it would fit). The zippers seem kinda cheap, but this is a really low price for a sleek and sharp looking laptop bag, so the quality and price balance itself out. My medium size Intuos4 tablet even fits in it (very snugly) with the laptop and all my cords and accessories. I have to admit though, with all that in the case, it sits awkwardly on my hip and sticks out kinda far when I'm carrying it. There are many pockets, and I can fit in all of my important computer accessories (I have in the bag currently: MacBook Pro 15.4" w/ power cord and extension cord; Intuos4 Medium w/ mouse, pen, usb cord and pen holder; Apple remote; iPod usb cord; MacBook wipe cloth; and the additional Belkin small zipper bag)... I find that when all this is in, I don't have much room to use all the small pockets like the card holders and such. I'm sure they could be utilized, but I'd rather not stuff it so full as to burst the seams. Overall, with it's sleek design, compartment space, laptop protective features and low price, I would say that this is an excellent bag for those of us who are on a budget.
I searched may sites to find a suitable bag for my Lenovo laptop with the 15.4 display. This Belkin messenger bag is everything that I was looking for. Has plenty of storage for my use, including a inside pocket for my ipod and a rubber grommet for my earbud cord. It also comes with a zippered pouch for extra storage. Whether you want to carry the bag by the handle or put it over your shoulder, I found it quite comfortable. Another great Belkin product. I'm thinking about ordering another one in a different color.
This bag is awesome. Looks great and fits the laptop/charger perfectly. The small zipper bag for the charger was a nice touch.
Loving the bag1/14/2009
I loved this bag from the first look. In this case the looks were definately not deceiving. Its comfort is a definate 10/10 thanks to the 100% polyester fabric both inside and out. It's much less stressful for those long walking trips me and my friends make on occasion with its lightweight and organization features with the storage capacity of larger models. Thank you buy.com for making this great deal available and i recommend taking advantage of this while you camera lovers can
