Loved everything about it, except color options.
Best bag on market for my price range and needs.Large enough to carry work laptop 15inch and surface book laptop comfortably.

I looked at this bag and knew it would be popular choice. Wanted to get a bag that stands out. Was at airport on few occasions where i stood behind someone with same bag which is why i would like different color.
Only problem i had was zipper. Besides the fact I carried two laptops, the warranty did not cover zippers from what i was told. Bought in US but traveled throughout Middle East. Took it to service center in Jeddah, and was told nothing can be done at all not even a repair. Will try to get serviced in states when ever i get back.
Bags here are over priced. Refuse to buy another bag because prices are higher than what they cost online and at home.
Tough to order online because i travel sporadically & i like to see and feel what i'm ordering.
Great bag though. Price dropped so i might reorder, until then tough it out.

I have owned this backpack for a year and overall I like the feel and space that come with it. Unfortunately the quality is just not there. Both shoulder straps are severely fraying. The Samsonite logo buttons in several area have come off and stitching on the side is also fraying. I will be taking into a samsonite outlook and hopefully the can repair or replace without giving me a hard time.

          Comments about Samsonite Tectonic 17" Perfect Fit Laptop Backpack:

          Pocket size and locations are all well thought out. Easy to access all parts of the bag while traveling by plane, train, foot or car. Keeps laptop and tablets safe and allow plenty of room to stuff papers, a light coat and other odd daily items.

          Wish the oversized headphone pocket was 1/4 the size as it makes for a great quick access location for wallets and phones while traveling through TSA and other checkpoints.

          Also wish the straps on the backpack were stiff. There is an elastic connection at the top of both straps for comfort. This instead just makes it difficult to pull the backpack in tight to your body for a comfortable fit for when your walking block after block. A chest buckle would also have been a great touch to pull the bag tighter to your body for those quick runs to your next flight and your three terminals away.

          Bag was a good price and has most the options I was looking for.

                  Cartridge Comparison Guide
                  • Cartridge Types
                  • Ink & Toner Basics
                  • Number of Pages & Shelf Life
                  Cartridge Type
                  Genuine or OEM (Original) Cartridges Remanufactured Cartridges Compatible Cartridges
                  Description OEM stands for original equipment manufacturer, meaning the cartridge was made by the same company that made your printer. Original brand cartridges are very reliable and sometimes the only option if your printer is new to market or uncommon. Remanufactured ink is a genuine brand cartridge that has gone through one cycle of use. After use, the cartridge is recycled, acquired by a remanufacturing facility and put through a rigorous professional refurbishing process. During the refurbishing process the cartridge is disassembled, thoroughly cleaned and tested for quality. It's then carefully refilled, tested again and brought back to life. Buying remanufactured prevents one less cartridge from ending up in a landfill. A compatible cartridge is a brand new ink cartridge built by a manufacturer other than your printer. It's like buying the generic version of the genuine brand. Most are uniquely designed to differentiate from genuine cartridges. Despite any structural difference you may notice, the cartridge will still fit in your machine and print a full yield, just like the original brand.
                  Price Factors Many printer manufacturers follow the razor-and-blades business model which may result in higher priced genuine cartridges. Remanufactured ink is much cheaper than the original brand ink. It's far more cost effective to refurbish a previously used cartridge than create a new OEM from scratch. Compatible ink is much cheaper than the original brand. Compatible suppliers don't have to worry about the additional costs that hinder OEMs like new printers or firmware, which lets them keep prices low.
                  Quality Original cartridges work extremely well and are covered under a warranty by the printer manufacturer High quality remanufactured ink will match the quality of the original, but not all remanufactured ink is created equal. Make sure you buy from a reputable supplier in order to get the absolute best results. High quality compatible ink will match the quality of the original, but not all compatible ink is created equal. Make sure you buy from a reputable supplier in order to get the absolute best results.
                  What's the difference between ink and toner cartridges?
                  Ink Cartridges Toner Cartridges
                  Printer Type Work with inkjet printers Work with laser printers
                  Material Liquid ink Dry powder
                  How it works Inkjet printers use a series of nozzles that spray tiny drops of ink directly on the print suface Laser toner printers use static electricity and heat to bond dry toner powder to a page
                  Commonly used by Casual home users, small business and photographers Large businesses and schools
                  Number of Pages You Can Print A cartridge's page yield is the estimated number of pages you can print. Page yield is based on 5% page coverage. This means that the quoted page yield is based upon printed pages where only 5% of the page has been imprinted with ink. For example, a short memo has approximately 5% coverage. If you have a cartridge that has a yield of 500 pages, it can print 500 pages of that short memo. If you are printing letters, photos or graphics, your coverage will vary greatly and your page yield will drop significantly.
                  Cartridge Warranty and Shelf Life Most ink and toner cartridges include a warranty or "best by" date on their box. Remanufactured and compatible ink cartridges can last 12-18 months unopened, and toner cartridges can last up to 3 years.
                  Cartridge Care and Storage Only open a cartridge when you need it. Opened cartridges will eventually dry out, especially if the protective tape or clip has been removed. If you have an open ink cartridge around and would like to try and prevent it from drying out, place it nozzle side up in a plastic airtight tub. If your cartridge came with protective tape or a clip reapply both before storing. Place a damp cloth or paper towel in the tub, next to the cartridge and keep it stored in a cool, dark place.
