I never really worried about transporting my laptop until I was starting university. Up until this point I had no reason to take it out of my house. I had seen various people with laptop bags, the square design ones. To me they just screamed I have a laptop come and get it. As there was nothing else you could really fit in them anyway. I needed something different.
I will be honest, the only reason I purchased this bag is because it was offered at a reduced price to me when I was buying a new laptop. But I have yet to regret buying it.
The first thing you notice is that it looks nothing like a laptop bag, just a normal backpack. This is especially ideal if, like me, you worry about your precious devices being taken from you. If you are walking down the street everyone would assume you had a normal bag. Ok so it doesn't have Nike or Adidas or some cool graphic plastered all over it, it's very unassuming. With the two-tone design it passes off well for me.
With the pouch for the laptop being right where you place your back, I can think of nowhere safer to have my laptop on the go. The only way your laptop can get damaged is if something gets between you and your back or something manages to hit the front of your back and somehow make it through whatever is in your bag along with the padding. This means you can be rest assured that your laptop is safe and don't have to worry about every little thing your bag bumps up against.
With the laptop placed against your back some people might think it's uncomfortable. However Targus have done an excellent job at providing enough padding in this area that you wouldn't even notice.
Unlike other laptop bags, this can be used for much more. I could comfortably store my laptop and books into this bag together when I needed too. Also when I didn't have my laptop with me it just meant I had more space to carry whatever I needed with me for the day.
Very satisfied with Targus and will definitely be the first that I consider when it finally comes to replacing my bag.
