Large Laptop Tote
Great for anything!
I definatley recommend this. I got it in Provencal 60% off but I would have payed full price had I known how amazing it is. I have the 13" Macbook Pro and it fits perfect! I can also but some school stuff, my phone, camera, ipod etc. I'm Glad I got the large because it fits everything. Also easy for travel when you have to take electronics out to be checked.

Too small for what I expected...
This bag would not comfortably fit my 15 inch macbook pro - the sleeve that was made seemed to be too stuffed and wouldn't close properly. Had the same problem with the laptop backpack. Is also slimmer than I would have liked. Had to return it :(. I'm also a "big bag" lover - so my favorite bags are the grand traveler, the miller and the get carried away totes, so maybe I'm biased.

Love for commuter tote
Really like the computer section. I use it for papers and IPAD. The shape reminds me of the pleated tote which I have several and like a lot. I find that I like the laptop tote much better because with the three sections, my folders stay in place in the computer section. Also carry my lunch, umbrella, shoes, etc. Only thing I wish it had was a zippered top and long pocket on the inside wall where there is currently nothing there. Some have said, they would like a water bottle slot - I think that will take away from the clean/neat look of the bag.

Perfect School Bag
If your looking for a school bag this one is perfect. It has a nice place for your laptop in the middle to keep it extra safe, there is still a lot of room on either sides of the laptop holder. I will buy these for school year after year!

I'm an itinerant teacher ( I teach children with disabilities in their homes) and this bag is great because it starts out light weight which is important since I load it with an ipad & keyboard, planner, folders, (I bought the plastic Vera folders to match my bag) and a few personal items ( I no longer carry a purse to work). Two changes I would make; first, because I carry papers and an ipad I would prefer a zip top to keep out the rain, second, I would love for it to have a water bottle pocket. I purchased mine in "Canyon" which is beautiful.

Best bag ever!!!
My brother surprised me with this bag for my birthday and it is AMAZING. Laptop fits perfectly and there is so much space for other items that I need. Love that the laptop is in the middle. It makes me feel like it is really well protected while still being able to access it easily.

PERFECT for students!
First let me start off by saying that I never write reviews for things I buy online, no matter how pleased I am with them, so the fact that I'm even writing one says a lot about how great this bag is! I am a busy college senior on the go and I currently have an internship at my school. I am going into a field of study that is relaxed but yet professional, so I wanted a tote that would be just that. I knew that I wanted something Vera because a lot of my friends have Vera and rave about it, but I wasn't even sure where to start. I orgininally bought the Grand Tote but upon recieving it found it was way too big and didn't have any interior pockets, so then I looked into it more and narrowed it down to the Large Laptop Tote and the Go Round Tote. I like the fact that the Go Round Tote had a lot of pockets, but I found it would be too small to put binders, books, and notebooks in, so I bought the Laptop tote. Upon recieving it, I was immediately in love! It has just enough pockets on the inside and outside, and was plenty spacious on the inside for a few textbooks, my agenda, a few folders, some small reading books, my Kindle Fire and my small pen/pencil bag. The pocket on the outside is so convienent for my cell phone. The only thing that I wish it has was a pocket on the outside for my water bottle, but this bag exceeded my expectations so much that I don't even care! I have only had it for a few days and have already gotten so many compliments on it. I ordered the bag in Provencal because it was a fresh and fun pattern for summer but I'd love to order another for winter. If you are a busy student or a professional on the go looking for a bag that will keep you organized but also gives you room, this is the bag for you!

Thank you for an amazing bag for teachers!!!
I had a gift card to Vera Bradley, and I love all their things so I wasn't quite sure what to purchase. After doing some research I stumbled upon the laptop tote. I bought it in Provencal, which is one of the prints that is part of their summer sale.. love this print it is so cute! The bag is big (without being obnoxiously big) and spacious. It has sections so your laptop and charger can be separated from other items in the bag. The bag is great for teachers to take to work even if you do not take your laptop.. you can use that space for your grade book and papers! I truly am 100% satisfied with the bag, and there are so many compartments inside and out!! A MUST HAVE.

Perfect for a teacher!
I absolutely love this bag for teaching. I teach 2nd grade and love that this bag is ultimately a file organizer! I've used the Vera style previously, and also have a smaller tote, Get Carried Away, and Miller. I was in search of a new teaching bag because I felt that the Vera was getting too heavy and I was losing items at the bottom because of how deep it was. After multiple times of visiting the VB store and checking out their bags I decided on this one. I don't use it for my laptop though. I do put my iPad, portable hard drive and chargers in the padded center section. In the two outer slots I keep my plan book, grade book, papers to grade, and teachers manuals. A lot can fit in here and I find that I'm even more organized with these three slots. I find that since the weight distribution is horizontal rather than vertical with the Vera, the bag is lighter and easier to carry. I bought it in the Plum Crazy color. If you were like me in search of a new teacher bag-this one's it!
