Oh my gosh, I have the worst bag for work ever. I don't know who designed this thing, but they must have never actually tried to use it themselves. Just really awkward.

I paid a little extra, and I'm glad I did.

It's kinda funny how they still include shoulder straps with them. Anyone that can carry a wheeled laptop bag on their shoulder is either a beast, or won't be doing it for very long.

The think that bugs me about computer bags is how much space is taken up by the bar on the inside of the bag.
