Center section unzips to open to two halves alllowing x-ray of computer without removing computer from the case. There is not much room for computer accessories such as a power adaptor, unless one wants to place them in the front section; a little bulky for that area, in my opinion. However, the expandable version does have areas dedicated to computer accessories, but one loses the file folder area. Shoulder strap is wide and padded enough to make it comfortable, even with the weight of a computer. The bag is well made complimented by the unlimited warranty from Briggs and Riley."..."Read more

This is my 11th Briggs and Riley bag. I have traveled to hell and back several times and Briggs and Riley has never let me down. This bag is a materpiece of efficiency. The front compartment has a lot of pockets to fit everything from pens to calculators and everything shows great attention to detail and fine workmanship. It is expandable. The pockets are all roomy, the zippers high quality, and the overall fit and finish top notch. The laptop fits into a separate sleeve that is tethered to the bag. At a TSA checkpoint, you slide the laptop out but it stays attached to the bag. After they look at it, just slide it back in, very simple. It has a piece on the back that allows it to lock onto the handle of a bigger rolling bag, and it comes with a great shoulder strap. Of all the laptop bags I've seen, this is the best thought out and best constructed bag out there.
Two things that bear mention. First, I have an HP 17.3 inch computer, not a 17 inch. I read on another website that my laptop would not fit this bag, and at first, I believed it. But I wanted to find out so I went to a retailer and tried it out. It fit perfectly. There was no stress on seams, no forcing, it was a perfect fit.
Second, the reason I have 11 Briggs bags is that I use them and once in a great while they get damaged. I once had an 8 year-old Briggs garment bag totally destroyed by an airline. The bag was so mangled that everything in it was dumped into two of those big tubs and the pieces of the bag ino a third tub. I sent the pieces to Briggs and in a week, I had a new bag. Other times, it has been a wheel, or a zipper or a handle, and every stinkin' time it has been fixed at no cost and returned to me with a smile. No BS, no hassles, no "yeah, but...". They just honor their warranty. I read about other bag's "Limited Lifetime Warrenty" and the forums are filled with stories of how that manufacturer didn't honor it because of something in the fine print. Briggs honors their warranty.
In short, it is a great bag made by a great company. You'll never go wrong with Briggs and Riley.
SMALL UPDATE: I just flew from Oakland to Las Vegas and back. In total, six people asked me how I liked the above bag, including one TSA supervisor. Inside the bag, I carried two laptops, a 15.4" and a 17.3" plus all cables and chargers, two changes of clothes, some files, a calculator, an ereader, and some other stuff. Yeah, I love this bag."..."Read more
