Large Laptop Tote
Perfect Teaching Bag!
I'm a trainer for a international corporation and I wanted something cheery and bright. This bag is adorable.It has a very sturdy adult feel to it, but I love that it also has a very childlike whimsy to it with grown up touches - i.e. the tortoise toggle closure. I got this bag in Midnight Blues - and it's amazing. The only thing I'd suggest as improvement is is more pockets and that the bottom of the bag would be removable for washing. (I haven't figured that out, yet)
It fits my laptop (Dell Latitude E6430 - 14 inches). The divider in the middle feels secure and snug. There's a pretty good amount of space to as well. I got the small colorblock tote in the same Midnight Blues pattern and it even it fits inside the bag with my laptop! This is great because I can stop carrying a purse and just have all my personal and class needs in one huge tote. Someone also commented on how it camouflages that you are carrying a laptop and I love that as well.
Also, at first, I was skeptical because when it ships, it looks smaller because its compressed, but once you expand it and fill it to capacity - it can hold a lot! The only thing I'd want is more inside pockets, but the 3 on the inside are quite spacious and the outside zipper one is pretty good too.

Great for school
I'm a college student and this bag is very useful and stylish. I carry my 13" laptop, a textbook (sometimes 2), 2 notebooks, a wallet, water bottle, pens, pencils, highlighters, and a couple little things. I love it.

Fantastic for Students with a Light Load
I'm taking a lighter class load this fall and couldn't justify using a backpack. I was looking at the Vera until I saw this tote online in Plum Crazy for the 75% off sale. Am I ever glad I got it! I'm 5" 1 and this bag is much more suited to my frame than the Vera (that my mom owns). I don't typically take a laptop to school, but the middle compartment sleeve is perfect to hold my notebooks. The inside pockets are great for holding my pens, calculator and water bottle. On one side of the laptop compartment I put my gym shoes and VB Ditty Bag of gym clothes. On the other side I have my iPad mini in its VB sleeve and a neoprene organizer with all of my essentials. The outer pocket is perfect for holding my phone and I put my keys (on a VB zip ID case) in the zip pocket on the back. With all of this it still closes easily! I love the toggle closure so that I can find my items fuss-free. I can't wait for classes to start so that I can use it every day.

Doesn't fit Toshiba Satellite
As previously stated, the bag is sloped. The bottom of the computer pocket is only about 12.5 inches. The padding makes the computer pocket smaller than the bag dimensions. In any case, it is not nearly enough for my Toshiba Satellite. I can fit the computer in one of the outside pockets. But, that kind of defeats the intent, doesn't it? As a side note, the Toshiba Satellite also does not fit into the laptop carryall without adjustments to the bag.

I LOVE THIS
this is an amazing bag that fits my laptop and still has plenty of space left over. However, it is a lot wider than 13.5 inches just so you know but i guess this just means i can fit more! just perfect and definitely bringing this to school from now on..

Love this Tech Bag...
This is my most used bag from Vera Bradly other than my purse. This bag holds my laptop, my tablet, my kids tablet, papers, and all their chargers. I never run out of room. This tote also has pockets inside and two pockets outside for additional storage of other small items.
I love that this looks like just another tote and people do not know you are carrying around tech gadgets...
Thank you Vera for creating such a great product.

Measurements do not consider tapered style.
The top opening of this tote measures about 18" across, plenty of room to fit a 15" or larger laptop into the padded sleeve but the bag tapers down the sides and the inner padded sleeve only measures about 12" at the bottom. My 15" wide laptop will only slid down 3/4 of the way and sticks out of the top. It does the same thing on my husband's 14" wide laptop. Plenty of room otherwise but this bag needs to be redesigned unless it is being used for a tablet type computer. Another option would be to include the bottom dimensions so buyers will realize exactly how tapered this bag is.

My favorite laptop bag ever
I have one of those very thin 13" UltraBook laptops, and this tote is perfect for carrying it around, with plenty of room for my cords, mouse, etc. I've also used it for my thicker 15" work Dell, and same thing there--still a good amount of room. It's amazing how much else this tote will hold; my husband and I recently went on an Alaskan cruise, which meant a LOT of airport and plane time. I had this baby stuffed to the max with my UltraBook and its peripherals, our cruise documents, snacks, magazines, my Kindle, my husband's hat and jacket, bottles of water, and more. It held up beautifully. Plus it fit perfectly under the seat in front of me for easy access. I love this bag so much I just ordered another, in case anything ever happens to this one.
