Windows 7: Protection for laptop in backpack?

Protection for laptop in backpack?

Hey everyone,
I am a nursing student in college and recent upgraded to a Kelty 32 Backpack. I needed this big of a bag (no joke) for the insane amount of books and supplies i use daily. But one important thing that i sacrificed for this is that it has no padded area for my laptop. I have a 15.6" Dell Inspiron, and was considering the G-Form extreme sleeve. I've had their cases on my iPhone 4s and 5s, as well as a protection sleeve for my iPad 3. I have had no issues with these, and they truly are some amazing cases.
But before i go ahead and purchase this, i wanted to hear if anyone else has either used this product or another one that they found to be very reliable!

Thanks,
Ben

I never use any cases for my laptop, but then again, I don't take it everywhere with me, so I can't comment on the cases, but unless the bottom of the bag is soft fabric then I think it would be OK.

I'd say its more pressure on screen against something then drop protection. Some of mine had had broken screens from making that kind of contact but fallen off ledges to no issue. I'd say Inspiron's are in the pressure category.

I agree. The backback is a kelty 32, and it is designed to carry a lot of stuff. I use it for all of my nursing books, so the bag is extremely heavy. But the inspiron 3531. I cannot find the exact dimensions anywhere, but i know it is a 15.6" so thats the starting point haha. If you come across anything, let me know!

Thanks,
Ben

Thanks for the specs. Does anyone have any suggestions? I still havent found something and the laptop has been fine, but I would rather be safe than sorry.
