Summering: I've been looking for a good laptop bag to use daily and for some traveling. This laptop was the perfect size. It has a pocket for my laptop and a separate pocket for me to hold a binder and some file folders. The front pockets have many little pockets for such things as pens, postits, etc. The shoulder pad on the strap makes it very comfortable no matter how much I shove into the bag. I love my new laptop bag!
