Targus unveiled their new T-1211 collection of laptop and tablet cases last month. The T-1211 is a collection of cases that are for travel, work, study and everyday commute. It is designed with a focus on creative details, original shapes, soft and comfortable materials. T-1211 cases are equipped with water-resistant exterior and non-scratch interior lining.

The bag measures 32.1 x 14 x 48.3 cm and weighs 1.04kg without any load. Personally, I think the backpack is too big for me because it can fit laptop right up to 17″ and I am using just a 13″ MacBook Pro Retina. I wish they have this backpack in different sizes for different sized laptops.

At the top there is a mobile phone pocket with pull-tab ejector to easily allow you to take out your phone when needed. I think this is a pretty redundant feature for me because I always have my phone in my pocket.

The bag has three front compartments, one side mesh pocket for your water bottle and a main compartment and in the main compartment, it has lots of internal slots including a removable/adjustable accessory pouch to neatly organise your gadgets/accessories.
