I was given this Targus 16 inch laptop slipcase by a friend who had been given it as a birthday gift and already had one. Previous to this I didn't own a case and would just keep my laptop at the side of my chair along with my books, pens and any current projects which I had on the go at that time. The laptop would often end up underneath these items and did collect dust and crumbs and I admit I really wasn't looking after it properly.
Since having this slipcase I always pop the laptop back into it after using it. Mine is a black case but they also come in blue, orange, green and brown. It is dustproof, scratch-proof, padded and water resistant. The outside material is neoprene (which is a synthetic polymer resembling rubber which is resistant to oil, heat, and weathering.) The design is modern and has four sections of material sewn together and a tarpaulin gusset around the edges. The interior is very thickly padded and consists of a layer of foam padding and a sort of mesh material. It has a triangular Targus logo to the front and a strong zip which opens the slipcase at the top and sides.
It weighs 340 grams and measures 2.5cm x 30cm x 42cm and fits laptops up to 16". My laptop is 15 inches so this fits in with room to spare. I rarely carry my laptop around or take it out of the house but if you do this it would probably be better to buy a larger one with a carry handle, although some people might like this design to carry as it is compact and neat and does look smart, although there isn't really much room for any power cables to fit in comfortably. However for what I use it for which is to keep my laptop dust and scratch free it is perfect and I am sure that my laptop will last longer now I am looking after it a bit more.
It is well made and has very thick padding but is also slim enough not to take up too much room. As I said I didn't pay for this but you can currently pick them up on Amazon and Ebay starting from £6.50 up to around £15 which I think is well worth it to protect my laptop and I would definitely replace it with another one the same. As this is the only case I have had I cannot compare it with any others but from my personal use of it I would definitely recommend it especially if you can get it at the cheaper price.
The Targus A7 16" Laptop Slipcase is designed to protect 16" widescreen laptops from scratches and dust. The heavily padded interior features the Tri-cell Cushion System which combines additional foam padding with mesh material for ventilation. The exterior features neoprene material with an industry-grade tarpaulin gusset around the edge which is highly durable and water-resistant. If used inside of another laptop case, the A7 slipcase provides an additional layer of protection from scuffs and wet weather. The slipcase can also be used alone when transporting a netbook between classes or meetings.
