The computer bag mecca in OC has some brand new offerings from Anaheim’s Targus.
Dubbed the ‘radius’ line (note the lower case ‘r’), the new bags look pretty solid. Plus, it’s Targus so I know the bags are durable else they risk tarnishing their rep as a solid computer bag maker.
Check out the orange and charcoal gray radius bags at the end of this post. I haven’t poked and prodded these bags, which target the Mac crowd. But I think I can fit my Dell in one.
Here’s a few that caught my eye:
Targus radius convertible messenger/backpack (pictured above): The black/olive bag (Model # TSB07701US) fits a 15-inch MacBook Pro and features a molded compartment for added protection. Special compartments for stashing an Apple Mighty Mouse, MacSafe Power Adapter, Apple Remote and iPod. And, of course, the bag converts from backpack to messenger. Price: $100 (Amazon has it for $69) and weighs 4.18 pounds.
Targus radius messenger: Fits 15-inch MacBook Pro. Nice touch: A locking zipper to secure the special laptop compartment. The case (Model # TSM040US) is pictured on right. Price: $90 and weighs 3.08 pounds.
Targus radius vertical messenger: Lots of pockets to fit Apple-related products. The case (Model # TSM043US) is also water-resistant polyester material in olive and black. Click picture on left for a larger view. Price: $60 and weighs 2.2 pounds.
All bags available at Amazon, for now.
Other bags I liked on Targus’ site:
The Targus radius backpack: Fits a 15-inch Apple notebook. It includes a removable Orange padded notebook compartment and lots of pockets for accessories and other electronic junk. There’s even a special iPod pocket. Price: $70 at Targus and a mere $24.99 at Amazon.
