This is a good briefcase for those of you who want to stop carrying the free black nylon laptop case you have been carrying and want to look a little more grown up. The design is good and one of my more snobbish friends said, "It looks like high quality leather." My wife guessed it cost $200. I wouldn't go that far but it's a decent value for the money. My only complaint was a strong chemical smell (like wood stain) that nobody else seems to notice (I have a sensitive nose). I wiped it down a couple of times with leather wipes and the smell has mellowed out so I think it will be ok.
I needed a bag that would be secure and also fit my 17" MacBook Pro and this bag is perfect. The laptop fits in very easily. I also wanted a bag that looked a little more professional than a nylon or canvas bag, and this one looks very squared away. I don't mind the closures, though I understand why some people have complained. If you're not mechanically inclined, they are not the easiest to use, but I don't have any problem with them. I like that they are lo-tech; no catch to break, no magnets to wear out, no velcro to get gross-looking.
