I am in LOVE
I love this bag! I was very sad when Vera stopped making the Metropolitan. As a busy professional that travels the Metropolitan was my go to bag. When I switched patterns I needed a new laptop bag to match. I was skeptical at first of this bag, but really love it. It fits my HP Elitebook 8470 just fine with plenty of room for cords, etc. and I love the fact that it has three compartments that zip which makes it great for travel. It easily fits under the seat and I can access one compartment at a time. I also bought the weekender to coordinate for short trips that don't require a suitcase..

"Best Laptop Bag I've Ever Had"
This is quite literally the best laptop bag I've ever had. I replaced the metropolitan bag, which I love for it's style, with this one. The straps are long enough to easily fit over your shoulder. It's incredibly light even with my 15" Macbook Pro in it. Even with all my school stuff in it, it's not bulky. I can easily carry a notebook, pens, my iPad, a textbook, and my laptop in this bag and not feel like I'm carry some huge bag. I'm going to also buy this bag in plum crazy. Awesome job, Vera Bradley!

Fits my Dell Latitude E6420
I have this in Canterberry Magenta - absolutely love it! This is my third Vera Bradley laptop bag and it hit the mark on where the others fell short. Previous bags did not have zippers - this one has 3 zippered compartments so when traveling if it falls over all the contents don't end up strewn everywhere. Lots of pockets and compartments to keep things in their place. Just two little tweaks my laptop fit just barely so a little more height would be great and also the straps are nice but would be great if they adjusted (a little tight when wearing a bulky winter coat).

Fits the 2013 15 inch Macbook Pro PERFECTLY
I just got this bag for my new computer, and it fits PERFECTLY. I love that is has 3 separate zippered compartments. It fits my Macbook pro, my iPad, iPhone and all my cords effortlessly, and I'm still left with plenty of room afterwards. If you are looking for a bag that will carry all your electronics and doesn't look like a laptop bag, then this is the one for you!
I got it in Canterberry Magenta, and i just love the look of it! :)

I have this in two colors. Three compartments hold a laptop or iPad, file folders and the third for Kcups, makeup, notary supplies, whatever. The front pockets hold my keys and my matching wristlet eliminating the need for a separate purse. Love them.

Great Potential, Too small for 15 inch laptops
I have an Asus and a Dell 15 inch laptop. Both will fit in the bag, but it is VERY tight. Both laptops are 15 and 1/8 inch wide. Although they will go into the pocket, I'm concerned about the wear on the zipper and the computer where it rubs to go in and out each day (And, I would have to remove tiny usb receiver for mouse to get it into the pocket). The fit is so tight that it requires propping the bag so that both hands can be fully utilized to wedge it into the pocket. I was also diappointed to know that the straps are not adjustable although one review said they were. It does have plenty of storage. I'm planning to return the bag. This bag has the potential to be perfect--exterior pockets, available zippers on large pockets, room for laptop AND other files, cords, etc. I'm hoping VB will redesign. It's difficult to find cute and functional for more than just a laptop.

Sadly not big enough
This could have been a better bag if they hadn't used such a short zipper. It would not fit my Toshiba Satellite 15.6". I am even thinking of buying a larger 17" laptop. Come on Vera Bradley, make some bags which fit today's computers. I also thought the handle was kind of odd on this. It had great storage, though. When I looked for an alternative, there really wasn't anything that was right.

Love this bag but wish it would fit my laptop
I purchased this bag in Bittersweet and absolutely love it. BUT, I have a Dell Latitude E6530 that just would not fit in this bag. What an enormous disappointment! I still like the bag for all its pockets and zippered compartments though.

I was looking forward to this bag. Sadly though, I have to return it. It is not large enough to fight my laptop. I have an HP Elitebook 8570p. I love the sections and know it would great for everyday use and easy to travel. I hope a larger one will be an option in the future.

Great bag for teachers!
I have been looking for a bag to carry my Macbook Pro 13' and iPad to school along with my student papers. This bag is perfect! My laptop, being smaller, fits nicely in the middle pocket, well protected and my iPad and extras go in the two others. I really like that the pocket zippers and my cell and teacher keys go in the outside pockets. I'm going to a convention this week and plan for it to be my "go-to" bag for all my teacher and tech needs.
