My MacBook Pro Retina (15.4" screen) just barely makes it in the laptop compartment with the velcro tab. It is in there snug. You could possibly fit a 17" laptop in the main compartment, but it would be a snug fit.. With the MacBook in there, I still have room for my ipad, all my chargers and mouse, plus some papers and small books. Outer pockets are decent, one zippered, one velcro flapped.
Overall, bag is built to normal Gregory backpack standards. Nice oversized YKK zippers and heavy nylon straps, nicely stitched top carry handle, and a wraparound strap for biking/walking. Also has a nice reflective strip along the bottom.
This is my day-to-day cary bag for my laptop, and I don't see myself needing anything stronger very soon. Bigger maybe, but that will just entice me to fill it up.
