i'd like some clarification on this as well. i have a rather standard
sized shoulder bag for my laptop and it's 3 inches too wide. in fact, a lot
of laptops are too big to fit the maximum sized bag listed. my
macbook air is 13" wide, i will need to scramble to find a conforming
14" wide bag before tomorrow at lunch time. a 15" laptop would
be problematic.
