SteveF: The maximum notebook compatibility dimensions are 44 cm x 30 cm x 6 cm so it should fit nicely.

10/03/2009 Jay: you previously stated that this bag will fit the Aspire 8920g. then after a subsequent question on the 8930g, said that machine would not fit.. the dimensions for both machines are the same. 44.1x33. can you please clarify your answers to these questions?

david s: This should fit both but it will be a very snug fit

17/01/2009 wayne: hi will the Targus classic 17'' backpack fit the Aspire 8930G

SteveF: No the 8930 has a 18.4" screen and the bag as stated fits a 17" laptop. Please give our sales team a call if you're struggling to find a bag that fits.

16/09/2008 pawskat: I have a Sony Vaio AR-71E notebook, would this fit into the bag?

Easycom: It will fit all notebooks with a 17 inch screen or under.

31/08/2008 Geoff: Will an Aspire 7720G fit in and would this be ok for hand luggage on an international flight?

Easycom: Yes the bag fits all 17" notebooks or under. You would need to check with the flight operator for sizes of acceptable hand luggage.

23/07/2008 Nigel: Will this fit a Dell 1720 17 inch inspiron laptop?

Easycom: Yes.

20/07/2008 8920G: Have you been able to verify it? It looks like it should fit, but it would not be the 1st time that the measures are so tight that then you cannot close the backpack.Many thanks!!

Easycom: It looks like it would just about fit at a very tight squeeze.

13/05/2008 IT: can this fit 18" Acer 8920G?
