I purchased this bag for college to hold both my laptop and my books, so I don't have to carry two bags and all my other stuff for school. Everything fits, but it's a little tight - I can only fit maybe 2 thinner books and my notebook in it. The laptop side is nice and the two small pockets on the sides are nice. The bag is very heavy to carry - with or without the books and stuff in it. It rolls nice though and the zippers are of good quality.
