Your next book bag

Hard as it may be to envision, it wasn't really until the 1990s that backpacks became the go-to bag for school kids. Satchels were the thing of the 70s and early 80s, and the big to-do of back-to-school time (after lunchboxes, of course) was checking out who showed up with a new book bag.

Imagine how popular you'll be amongst all the kids with your new book bag, quite literally. This satchel looks like a leather-bound book from the outside, and pays homage to our favorite hobby - READING! At almost 16" x 13" x 5", you can use it as a purse, a small tote, or a smaller laptop/netbook/tablet case. (We intentionally designed it to fit a 15" Macbook.) Throw it over your shoulder with the long strap or remove the strap and use the convenient top handle instead. Irony: use it to carry your ereader! If you go that route, we bet you can fit your phone, wallet, keys, and all your other essentials inside, too. So get a new book bag today. You deserve it.

"Will my laptop fit in this bag, ThinkGeek?" Let's find out together!

Laptop Fitting Guide
Measure your laptop.
Like TVs, laptops are listed by their measurement on the diagonal. Bags, on the other hand, are measured on the edges. Not all 17" laptops are the same size, so you'll need to measure the length & width of your closed laptop.

"But my laptop is at home, ThinkGeek!"
If you can't wait, Google has superpowers to tell you the dimensions of your laptop if you ask it nicely. Just input the make and model of your laptop and ye shall receive.

"I've got the measurements! Now what?"
Compare your laptop's measurements to the measurements of the bag. If the laptop's measurements are smaller than the bag, it fits! If one or more of the laptop's measurements are bigger, you're out of luck with this bag. Try another.
