Great bag for the price

PostedMarch 19, 2014
Yes, I would recommend this product
I bought this bag for my Dell Inspiron 11 3138 11.6" notebook based on the size specs and reviews. When I took it out of the box I was surprised at how large it was,much larger than the size specs listed here and on the Targus info card which came attached to it(these specs were different then here).The outside size was 13" wide(13.5" across the flap)x 12" high x 2.5" deep,with the front pocket empty(4.5"with the pocket full).The inside laptop compartment was 12.25" wide x 11" high x 2" deep.The width wasn't too bad for my 11.6 notebook,but it sits 3" down inside the compartment.Also,the shoulder strap is not removable (it wrongly says removable here,and on other websites,but not on the Targus website).I think Targus may have made this bag larger at some point in time, and not updated all their specs and pictures. Their website now lists it as a 14" laptop bag(although their specs say 14" in one place and 13.3" in another), and the picture here and on the Targus website show the outer pocket coming down to the bottom of the bag,but,on mine, the bottom of the pocket is about 2" above the bottom of the bag.This would be the case if they made the bag body higher using the same outside pocket,which is what the larger size seems to indicate. Also,I read some older reviews on Amazon that complained of not being able to get a file folder into the outside mesh pocket on the back.On mine, I can get an 11.5" file folder in the back mesh pocket with no problem.Again,probably because they have apparently made the bag wider,along with higher. The bag holds my laptop in the padded laptop compartment(I added some more padding to keep it from moving around,and the bag's padding was a little on the light side),my power brick,pens,notepad,headset,and travel mouse(stored in the removable cell phone pocket) in the outer front pocket,screen cleaning cloth in the flap pocket,and a 11.5" x 9.5" file folder for documents in the rear mesh pocket.Since the laptop sits 3" down in it's compartment,there is plenty of room to fold the shoulder strap in on top of it under the velcro closure when I just want to use the carry handle.I gave it a 4 star after comparing it to my very old Tenba camera messenger camera bag.The nylon in the Targus is MUCH lighter than that in the old Tenba,especially noticeable in the front outer pocket.Also the workmanship in the Targus is inferior to the old Tenba(especially noticeable in the light gray trim near the bottom of the flap not being parallel to the edge of the flap-much higher at one end).In addition, I feel they could have made the velcro closure for the laptop compartment more applicable for different sized laptops.As it is now,it is just two pieces at the top of the compartment,that when closed allow any laptop under about 11" deep to move up and down.If they had used longer pieces of velcro,and fastened them to the sides about 3" down from the top,any laptop between 8"-11" deep could be held tight in place.Even though it is larger than was indicated(and I needed),it works well for me,and is a very good value for the Dell price.
Pros:holds all i need, good value
Cons:quality of materials and workmanship a little low, larger than specs indicate, laptop compartment closure not well designed

Pro. It is a nice case to carry you duo computer in. The case is light to carry, even with the computer in it.
Con. It is not big enough to carry the computer and the external cd rom or any papers. I am able to get them into the bag, but it's a tight squeeze
Pros:to carry it from home to work.

Targus CityGear Atlanta Messenger Laptop Case

PostedDecember 22, 2011
Yes, I would recommend this product
Bought the Targus to go with my new Dell Duo.
Quality soft case made of durable and rugged materials, light weight, not oversized or bulky.
Comes with a shoulder strap that when you want is easily tucked under the cover without removing it, allowing easy use of the handle making it feel like a briefcase
The case holds my Duo and all the peripherals purchased with it including the DVD external drive, all I have to do is grab the bag when on the go and everything is there.
The only issue I had is with the Cell phone pouch, seems small for larger smart phones but works well for the small wireless mouse purchased with the Duo

perfect for someone hauling a smaller laptop...and other stuff...bought it for my son to commute to college...perfect to keep the laptop separate from the books and stuff in the book bag. On an "easy" day, he can just take the messenger back with and leave the book bag home.

Perfect for mini laptops

PostedDecember 23, 2010
Yes, I would recommend this product
This case is durable and rugged so you don't have to worry about how rough it is handled. It has an area for your 'office on the go' with out being too big. Only thing I would change is having the removable outer phone case be bigger so you could use it for a mouse also.
Pros:travel case for dell inspiron duo
