Documents for Business Types
The other major compartment on the Zip-Thru Corporate Traveler is a dedicated file section, tackling file folders and other important documents. This comes from the corporate focus of this laptop case, of course, but regular travelers will find this space useful for carrying travel documents and other pertinent things. Try magazines and other reading materials.
The Zip-Down Workstation?
If you have the one part for your laptop and the other part for documents, where are you supposed to store all of those other things that you need to pack while on a business trip? Targus has that covered too.
On the front section of the Zip-Thru Corporate Traveler is what they call a zip-down workstation. This is far from the largest compartment, but you've got room for a cell phone, a point-and-shoot camera, some stationery, and so on. There's also a small mesh-backed bag for additional accessories. That might be a good place for your laptop's power supply, for example.
Zipping Through Security Checkpoints
And this is the reason why you would opt for something like the Targus Zip-Thru Corporate Traveler Laptop Case over a conventional notebook bag. The bag splits in half so that it can lay completely flat. This allows you to clear airport security without removing your laptop from your bag, as your notebook is completely isolated from everything else. This is utterly fantastic for frequent flyers.
Targus has marked the "splitting" zipper with red font to differentiate it from the zippers for opening the two main compartments. This is a small detail, to be sure, but a valuable one nonetheless. There's nothing more embarrassing than opening up the wrong zipper and having the contents of your bag spill across the airport floor.
A Real Time Saver
When you normally go through airport security, you have to go through the hassle of removing your laptop, putting it through the scanner, and then shoehorning it back into your already overstuffed bag. That's a waste of time and effort. With the Zip-Thru design of the Corporate Traveler, the process is just a little less painful. I would have liked if the inner lining on the "open" bag to be a little thicker, but it will only be exposed to the elements for the few seconds it takes to get through the X-ray machine. Not a huge deal.
