Targus XL + G74Sx + SF-19: Making a Video review.. :)

I just bought the Targus XL hoping that it will comfortably fit my Cooler Master SF-19 Strike Force cooling pad and my Asus G74SX-A1.

Seeing as there isn't ANY video reviews online concerning a carrying case/bag and the G74Sx I am deciding to make one once the backpack arrives, so the community here can see how good the bag actually is without having to rely on silly written reviews.

The bag should be here within the next 2-3 days, so expect one then or shortly after. :cool:

that targus messenger xl bag is pretty sweet, but i think he was talking about the backpack.

i've been suggesting thinkgeek's bag of holding as well, but i think you'd need to get like a laptop sleeve to put down in it.

Yea I went ahead and picked up the Targus Messenger XL Bag, I looked at the backpacks however to me in my opinion they looked a little "light" to be of much protection. I am sure I am wrong and they are a great case but to me I just wanted something a little "thicker". Plus I kind of like the fact of being able to see whats going on with my bag, as apposed to when it's on my back and I have no idea whats going on with it if I am in a crowded area (Subway, Elevator, Etc.).

IMHO it fits great, the guy at Best Buy kind of looked at me funny when I took the bag up to the display version of the G74 and asked him if I could use it a second, but then chuckled after I told him why. He said "Well, it fits up to 17" screens" and then I informed him that so does the Swiss Army bag they sell, however it is to thick to fit in it.

Another reason I like the messenger bag, besides being able to see and know whats going on with my bag, is the "Targus POCKET for iPad" that it has which they advertise fits the 1st and 2nd Generation iPads, and most tablets and e-readers up to 10", and the "hidden" pocket n the side that can old a beverage container.

I can't find one named "XL", is it one of these (or are they the same product?) I am thinking of getting the same messenger bag.
