I asked for this bag for Christmas. I was so excited when I got it. It's functional and beautiful and has many compartments. I use the inside zipper area to hold my netbook and place my other wallet, reading material and notepad in the other parts. When I want to carry my regular laptop with me, I used the larger space that is padded for laptops and put my other items in the other compartments. Very functional and it elicits compliments where ever I go. I highly recommend this bag.
