This is the best back pack I have ever owned. Perfect amount of room and holds all of my stuff. I recently washed it beacause it was getting dirty but the straps didnt wash well. But overall it is a awesome backpack.

Awesome laptop bag!!
Over the years I have probably bought every type of laptop bag a girl would be willing to carry around. I've had roller bags, other backpacks (mostly manly looking things), shoulder bags of varying types and sizes. This is by far the best bag I have ever had for my laptop. I do not carry books, folders or binders. I am in IT so I do carry a lot of tech gear. I did buy the Trip Kit to go with this backpack. I didn't just want to toss all my cables, external hard drives, mouse, router, etc, etc in the large pocket of the bag. I wanted it contained. The sleeve for the laptop is a perfect fit for my laptop. The large middle pocket holds the Trip Kit (which is full), my router, my external hard drive case and drink bag (zip lock bag full of tea bags, crystal lite singles and splenda singles). The outer pocket is honestly under used. The only things I have in it are my blackberry, business cards and a couple of pins. Lastly, I'll say that I will be getting another Trip Kit to go with this backpack. I need it for my tech gear. There is plenty of room in the middle pocket to add a second Trip Kit to what is already there.

Laptop Backpack in Suzani
I just bought my third laptop backpack. I needed to get this bag in Suzani, the color goes with everything! I love this bag, it fits everything I need for my nursing lectures. My only experience is with the older style, where the laptop compartment is in the back and separated from the front area. This style works just fine and I feel that I am able to hold a lot more than I would with the new style.

Long lasting great backpack!
I bought mine almost 2 years ago. As a high school teacher, the backpack is used daily and usually full. Not a single stitch loose! Straps in great shape and their placement keeps the pack on my back even when I use one strap over a shoulder. I don't know if a thicker 15" would fit in the side pocket but my 13" Mac Pro fits beautifully. I have never had a backpack or other bag last this long without stitching breakage.

I was so excited to receive my laptop backpack. I got it in Plum Petals. The color is still very bright, even after a while of using it. I get many compliments at school for how eye-catching it is. Since I don't use it for a laptop, I put my 2 inch binder in the laptop compartment and it surprisingly fits! It has cute pockets in the front, and in the middle, there is plenty of space for everything you'll need. I am so happy at how much it fits! Amazing product!

Not worth the price
I've had my backpack for a little less than a year and it is already falling apart! I'm currently a college student who uses my backpack on a daily basis for my laptop and hauling around notebooks/textbooks. While the design is really cute, the material is in no way durable or easy to clean. I've washed mine 3 different times and even the lightest stains will not come out. I would recommend this to someone who only uses their backpack for laptop transportation, that aspect of this bag is great. I'm really disappointed in the way this backpack has held up because none of my other Vera Bradley products have had any issues whatsoever.

THE BETS BACKPACK EVER!!
i love this bacpack! You can use it for almost anything. There is enough space for about anything. The picture on here may look small but it is really big. I know its meant for a laptop but i use it for anything and everything. I think you should get this. The patters are also very nice and my favorite pattern in Safari Sunset. If your in school and you like Vera Bradley i would recommend this type of backpack for you. If you dont like this that well there is other types of backpacks.

I've had this backpack for awhile in Indigo Pop, but I am reviewing it now.
It has the perfect amount of space, and still stay slim. I love everything about this, and I like this better than the new one.

I recieved this as a gift for Christmas, but I wasn't sure that it would fit all of my things. It fit everything!
2 pencil cases
girl scout supplies
Suprisingly, i do not have to carry a binder back and forth daily. I have a 2 inch binder, so anyone that carries a 2 inch binder should not buy this backpack.
About a month ago, a thread came loose in the strap, it hasn't ripped yet but i was very upset. And my locker is very small, and this fits perfectly with my lunch date, coat, and possibly a hoodie too.
What i say: go for it, it may be pricey but its awesome.
