    I got my girlfriend one of the Belkin bags for her Studio 17 - It just about fits, but not into the little felt pocket, but inbetween the slices, so just does the job lol.

    Guessing yours won't do the same?

    I could just about fight it in but I had to force the bag around the corners of the laptop and it feels like the zip will break :x

    Well I ended up paying £6.98 for it, so if I add my postage cost to send it on to someone else then I will probs have to sell it for £11 just to get my money back :roll:

    Well, I have emailed Halfcost to see what they have to say, but the bag only cost £2.99, then the postage charge was £3.99 so won't be worth sending back

    No because it will fit a 17" just not their 17". It's their fault for not … No because it will fit a 17" just not their 17". It's their fault for not checking.Here is an example, obviously not to scale, the green line represents 17", both are 17" laptops with very different shaped screens. You have different aspect ratios of, 4:3, 5:4, 16:9, 16:10.



    I think mine is a 4:3, even if it was 16:9 it still wouldn't fit as it would then be too wide :thumbsup:
    There were no details regarding the actual size of the bag - it stated up to 17" and my laptop is 17" :roll:

    So if you bought a box for some size 7 shoes, would you then moan that … So if you bought a box for some size 7 shoes, would you then moan that your size 7 knee length boots didn't fit. It's your fault not theres, just accept it.



    dude can i just ask, why do you speak to people like this? (In case you are wondering "like what?" you come across as very rude)

    do your parents speak to you like it and you learnt from them?

    serious question btw i'm not trolling

    "up to" could be read as up to but not including 17" so 16.9" would fit :-D

    That actually makes no sense because the size has been stated in this case - if I buy a shoe box I couldn't expect a knee-length boots to fit as they will not be the same size :thumbsup:

    Holds a laptop up to 17"

    I read that as a 16.4 being the biggest size

    if it said up to and including 17inch then I would be annoyed

    edit I cant read as csiman said pretty much what I said lol
