Targus Unofficial Messenger Case for 16 Inch Laptops
Jul 27, 2010
I've got two messenger type cases already, one from TUMI and the other a good quality leather messenger. The Targus messenger is perfect because when I have less to carry I now have a smaller size messenger I can take with me instead of the heavier TUMI (or leather). With that being said, I doubt a 16" laptop will fit into this case; I tried it out with a 13" MacBook Pro and it had room to spare. I'd say a 14" laptop would easily fit but a 15" might be pushing it (especially if it's widescreen). The compartment for the laptop is excellent, secure and padded. There are only two large compartments, and so once your laptop is in its place you have room for some of your pens, pads, and folders/books/papers in the other main compartment. Overall I'd say perhaps one large book or two medium sized books will fit. There are zippered compartments and pockets throughout the main compartment of the bag and on the messenger's sides, but, once again, this, for me, is a messenger to use when I don't have much to carry with me. Lastly, the build quality seems excellent, the flap is held in place by magnet, a nice touch, easy to open and you just swing it back over to close; there's no messing around with trying to find the right place to plug something into, so it's perfect. Only downside for me is there is no padding on the shoulder strap. Not too bad if you're not carrying much (another reason why I'll be using this when I don't have much to take with me) but something that I still would have appreciated. But overall, I'd definitely recommend this product.
