Default 17.3" Laptop Backpack

I need a backpack (not a messenger bag) for my G75. I know, the lappy's big, but there's gotta be something. I never used anything for my G74, but I need one for this. Suggestions?

I do have a Targus backpack that I used to carry my 15" in.

This one might work: Newegg.com - Targus Black 17" Groove Backpack Model CVR617

Reviews say 17" laptops are a tight squeeze.. Couldn't imagine this thing being any easier.

Found this, looks legit:

Newegg.com - Wenger Blue 17" SwissGear Ibex Notebook Computer Backpack Model GA-7316-06F00

Nice! They're getting cheaper as I go. I'm assuming it fits your G73 fine then?

Yeah, it fits it perfectly. I had to buy it so I could take my G73 to classes lol. It has A LOT of space as well. We have that exact kind of bag at work, as well.

Overall.. it's huge, but a good buy. I got it when it was around $50 or $60 I believe.

I'm going back to college in the fall on weekends and nights, so I need something for my G75 as well.

I'd recommend it then; plenty of room for books/notebooks, plus the charger, plus the laptop lol.
