**What is it?**
The Targus 16 inch / 40.6cm Rolling Laptop Case is a large (XL) sized laptop case which is designed for larger laptops up to 15.5 inch in screen size. It's a rolling laptop case, which means it has an extendable handle and wheels designed for use like a small rolling suitcase.
**Price and Availability**
I'd say the Targus 16 inch / 40.6cm Rolling Laptop Case is probably more of a high end laptop case, and as such I've never seen it on the high street, though you may find it in a specialist office supplies or laptop shop. I bought mine on Amazon and it was priced at £132, though it has dropped in price to £122 now. Obvously this is quite expensive for a laptop case and therefore it is designed with the business user and traveller in mind.
The Targus case is, as it's name suggests, designed for a larger laptop, up to 15.5 inches in screen size, and is styled in durable and waterproof black nylon. It has silver zips and black plastic wheels and a tubular black metal / plastic extendable handle, much like a suitcase.
It looks very professional and suitable for business use.
The Targus 16 inch / 40.6cm Rolling Laptop Case has a smaller zipped compartment on the front, ideal for travel documents, a purse, a small pad and a pen, and so on. Inside the main section there is a removable padded section in which you slide your laptop, leaving room for your mouse, charger, and any work folders - the large size makes it ideal for an A4 pad.
I've even squeezed in a set of clothes (minus shoes!!) and a few toiletries for an overnight stay, so there is ample room in here for business travel.
The handle is very sturdy and durable, and the wheels feel of a similar high quality also. Rather than feel rickety or wobbling off - course, the Targus 16 inch / 40.6cm Rolling Laptop Case goes in a straight line when pulled behind you, ideal for running for a taxi, train or making the front of the line at the airport!
I believe it is bigger than the standard hand luggage size for all airlines and once packed with my laptop and all accessories, it's certainly too heavy, but worry not, because the vast amount of padding, protected corners and so on mean that your laptop is safe in the hold, on air or even coach travel. The case has two zips, so you can use a standard suitcase padlock on it.
Overall, I do highly recommend the Targus 16 inch / 40.6cm Rolling Laptop Case, but only if you are a serious business traveller, because in all honesty a £20 - £30 laptop rucksack or briefcase is fine for day to day use or short commutes. For further travel, this not only looks professional, and holds a lot, it saves your back!
If you're looking for a heavy duty, yet professional laptop case which will hold everything you need for a short business trip, then I do highly recommend this Targus case and will give it 5 stars out of 5. It is sure to last you, and you'll be so glad you have it, when you're running through the airport dragging it faithfully behind you!
