Targus XXL Laptop Case
Designed to hold laptops and notebooks up to a 20" screen I keep my HP Laptop in a Targus case and I am confident that it is safe and secure in there. The main material of the case is Nylon and the outside is black with the interior material being grey. I have two laptop bags and just love them, they are so handy.
My HP slots neatly into its padded compartment and is secured by a strong Velcro strap. This compartment also features a handy CD pocket and little section that is ideal for an external mouse. Also in the main section my bag has a useful full size flap that is handy for document storage or in my case a fitness DVD. This section is secured by a strong lockable nylon zip with a stainless steel zipper.
In addition to this area there are two other openings one that is secured by a patch of strong velcro and opens wide enough to house the mains lead and unit for the laptop as well as briefcase items such as pens, calculator, my packed lunch, sweets and soft drink.
The last area is a simple narrow sleeve opening that is secured by a small Velcro touch tab and I find ideal for popping in a book for journeys when I am not using the laptop. Any of these storage solutions will take the HP's instruction booklets, but these days that lives in a drawer.
The zip is always easy to open and close, the bag is well balanced and the other sections also open and close with reassuring smoothness.
The overall dimensions are: Width 51cm Height 48cm and depth 10cm.
To carry the case there is a good wide strong over shoulder or even over body adjustable strap and a nicely padded strong hand carry handle. These straps are attached via strong rubberised enforced patches and stainless steel hooks and clips in the case of the strap.
Price and Availability:
Currently £59.95 from Amazon. Also available from other outlets that sell Laptops/Notebooks and some specialist bag stores.
Mine came with the Laptop I bought from work and I would gladly buy or recommend a Targus Laptop Bag to anyone. It is reassuringly tough, has lasted really well and a quick wipe over with a damp cloth brings it up looking as good as new despite several years of hard use.
I find the laptop case an ideal safe travel storage solution for my laptop as well as a useful way to store and keep it clean when it is not in use at home. I much prefer a laptop bag to a briefcase now when I am out and about on business even if I am not taking a laptop.
The Targus is smart and tidy to carry about although all this comes at the cost of weght - it weights 2Kg.
Thank you for reading and I hope you found it useful :)
