**UPDATE Jan 20, 2016 (Purchased Jan 5, 2015)**
So after a year and a couple weeks, the main zipper finally gave in. The side mesh pockets are torn, the divider between the main compartment and the second compartment is torn, the insides of the second compartment is torn, and for the most part, the bag is in rough condition. After much use, I think I am retiring this bag and moving on to a new one.
I hope this gives you an idea of what to expect when purchasing this bag. It will last you about a year after a year of use near daily use.
Thank you all for following me through this journey.

So I use this backpack on an almost daily basis for 11 months. I do and have packed heavy books, a laptop, bulky stuff, shoes, clothes, fruits, groceries, water bottles, a gallon of water (don't ask), and everything in between. This backpack has seen better days but has still...
The bag is nicely built, the quality is average it can hold light weight laptops well. I won't recommend it for heavy laptops.
The one i received, the shoulder straps are not balanced properly, the right shoulder strap was little misplaced(see photo). Is there any quality check in Targus ???
If you are planning to buy this, please spend few bucks more and buy a better backpack
Purchased this bag for nursing college. I normally carry a few heavy textbooks, a notebook, pens, highlighters, a stethoscope and my water bottle, everything fits without issue. Bag seems very sturdy from shoulder straps to carrying handle. Can't do any better for the price point, considering other similar backpacks went for $40 plus.
I don't carry a laptop but the area where it would go seems decently padded.
