Answer:
Bought mine in 2008 to go with my new 17" laptop; though the laptop actually does, shockingly, still work 9 years later, perhaps even more shockingly is that this bag still looks almost as good as the day I bought it, save one of the eyelets disappearing (oh and the plastic casing on the carrying strap is ripped up--bu… see more Bought mine in 2008 to go with my new 17" laptop; though the laptop actually does, shockingly, still work 9 years later, perhaps even more shockingly is that this bag still looks almost as good as the day I bought it, save one of the eyelets disappearing (oh and the plastic casing on the carrying strap is ripped up--but oddly the like steel cable beneath it is in perfect shape, hah). And I carried this daily for ~5 years and still bring it on every trip I ever take (as my "go bag" with the stuff I actually need to always have with me) and yeah, basically, I have never regretted my purchase for a moment. see less Bought mine in 2008 to go with my new 17" laptop; though the laptop actually does, shockingly, still work 9 years later, perhaps even more shockingly is that this bag still looks almost as good as the day I bought it, save one of the eyelets disappearing (oh and the plastic casing on the carrying strap is ripped up--but oddly the like steel cable beneath it is in perfect shape, hah).

Answer:
Not gonna lie, at 17.3 inches my laptop was smack at the top of the bag and made closing the zipper a gamble at best. i would say that they mean a very literal 17 inches and i feel like that is being generous. so no, i don't think it will fit.

Answer:
The warranty is on workmanship only. Not normal use, wear and tear or over stuffing.... I have been thru this with the swiss gear company.... I just had the zipper repaired by a seamstress...

Answer:
I can tell you that it fits my 17" ASUS laptop that has the extended keyboard with numerical keypad. I'm not sure that completely answers your question but I absolutely love this backpack and know two other people (both male; I'm female) who would swear by it as well. They have the 17" Dell laptops.

Answer:
We measured and it would be tight. The bottom to the top is 18" but it is rounded. If your computer is 11" wide it would fit but tight. After that it won't. I hope this helps you.

Answer:
Okay, not exactly sure which numbers are the measurements of your laptop, but I just measured the inside compartment where I keep my laptop, and from top to bottom it's just under 18". At the NARROWEST part of the width (where the zipper starts curving in towards the top), it's about 10.5" across. My laptop measures 1… see more Okay, not exactly sure which numbers are the measurements of your laptop, but I just measured the inside compartment where I keep my laptop, and from top to bottom it's just under 18". At the NARROWEST part of the width (where the zipper starts curving in towards the top), it's about 10.5" across. My laptop measures 15" x 10" x ~0.75" and it fits comfortably in the computer pocket with plenty of room. However, if your laptop is indeed 13.1" wide, I'm thinking that won't work. I suspect it either will just plain not fit, or it will spread the sides of the backpack wide enough that it becomes difficult to zip closed, especially at the point where it starts narrowing in. I'm not sure, but I think most computer backpacks give a size of laptop that they will accommodate; I'm pretty sure all the SwissGears I looked at did. Overall, I'm happy with this backpack, so I would recommend looking for another SwissGear that specifies your computer size. see less Okay, not exactly sure which numbers are the measurements of your laptop, but I just measured the inside compartment where I keep my laptop, and from top to bottom it's just under 18".

Answer:
Both of the non-laptop compartments have deep pockets across the back of the compartments, that are useful for putting items you want to separate. But not soft-attached dividers. With the compartments being only a few inches wide, I'm not sure what value you would get from dividers. I put papers and so on in plastic fo… see more Both of the non-laptop compartments have deep pockets across the back of the compartments, that are useful for putting items you want to separate.
