Large Laptop Tote
Perfect for Work
I just received my bag 2 weeks ago. I have toted it back and forth to work each day and it is perfect! The only thing I would change is to make the straps quilted and the inner Velcro piece longer.

I love this Bag!!!
I just received my first Vera Bradley bag today in the mail. It was perfect. I got the Marina Paisley design which is also perfect and beautiful it pretty much holds everything I need for school and just my general necessities. I would definitely recommend this bag to anyone. Also i plan on using the laptop section for my iPad and bluetooth keyboard but I actually think my laptop would fit too. I just love it.

A Perfect Tote...
This is a perfect tote for a 15" laptop and a few other items; however, the PERFECT TOTE is needed for my 17" MacBook laptop and I'd love to see a sleeve on the outside of this tote that could slip over my carry-on suitcase handle!

I've been waiting for a bag like this
I love this tote! Normally I carry my iPad in a regular Vera, when I go to the hospital for monthly infusions. I don't like the tablet hipster, because all it carries is the iPad! But, the Vera dosent offer much protection. So, I bought the laptop tote. It works great not only for my iPad, but I can also fit my 15 in laptop in there too( instead of the iPad). I like this bag because it's very versital. Not only can I carry my technology, I can also carry my knitting projects, magazines, even a sweater or a change of clothes!! And it's east to carry with the long handles. I love this bag!!

Need a bag for 17" computer
I love this bag, but it won't fit my computer. I have a business computer with the 10 key number pad next to the keyboard. So it is a 17". It fits into the laptop portfolio but there is no room for the charger, let alone a few files.
I want a beautiful briefcase for the business women!

Laptop measurement is screen diagonal
I think this is a nice bag, but would be improved by more organization. I'd have preferred more pockets, a zippered compartment on the wall opposite the one with three little pockets would've been nice, and more on the outside, like the go-round tote.
As to complains regarding laptops not fitting, the recommended size refers to diagonal measurement of the screen, not the outside width (as one would measure a television screen). Hope that helps someone.

Love, love, love, love this bag!
I work in the IT industry and most laptop backs are ugly! I have a 14inch Alienware laptop. (This is a gaming laptop so its very thick.) It fits perfectly. I can also carry my makeup case, wallet, charger, mouse, keys, and a few odds-n-ends. The zipper outside pocket is perfect for my headphones and change purse and I just slide my cell phone into the other. Is the bag heavy? Yes, but it's really due to how heavy my laptop is. Not the bags fault. I do wish it had padded shoulder straps, but at this point, I love it so much I don't think that deserves a rating decrease.
Another thing I love about this bag is without my laptop...I can use it as a purse/diaper bag when running quick errands. It keeps my tablet safe in the laptop sleeve and has enough space for a few diapers and a bottle.

Computer does not FIT
I wanted to buy this today but couldn't because my laptop did not slip into the computer pocket. The pocket is too small. My laptop is 14 inches wide and it would not slide to the bottom of the pocket.
If you could allow a little more room - it would be a great bag for busy computer people.

Good bag but...
I got this bag to use for school and I love it but it didn't hold all of my school things like I was hoping. I have really wanted a tote that had a laptop sleeve but since this sleeve is right in the middle of the bag I had a hard time fitting my bigger text books in the bag when my laptop and charger were in the bag too. This bag will be great iF you don't have a lot of text books to carry with your laptop.

Great for school!
I bought this tote in Plum Crazy because I was looking for a new bag to replace the Vera that my dog chewed up. I was trying to find a tote that wasn't as big and bulky as the Vera, but I could still use it for school. I'm not a fan of backpacks, so when I stumbled across this bag I was overjoyed! It was the right size that I was looking for so that it fits in my locker and I can still fit all of my stuff in it. I can also fit my large cosmetic case in here, which is saying a lot considering that I have to carry 2 binders and a bunch of journals to school, but I still have room left over! Also, this bag takes the place of my Laptop Backpack that I had been using, but this one is much smaller, so it is more portable. If anyone is looking for a good bag to use for school, or a good bag to use to carry their laptop, this laptop tote is a great choice!
