The Nomad's laptop compartment fits a slightly larger (5 cm/~2 inch deep) gaming notebook too; including the latest G750JH with GTX 780M.  nomad-shuttle-compare-1 The Nomad also has more features as standard - on the back there's the extra carabiner clip and large waist strap, while its ballistic Nylon provides better water-proofing, and, combined with fatter zips give better overall strength than the Shuttle's polyester. nomad-shuttle-compare-2 Not only can the Nomad fit a slightly bigger 17 inch notebook at the back, it has an extra upper-front pocket for a few more bits. Meanwhile its central pocket is compartmentalized with padded areas for each gaming component: a headset, power brick(s), external drives or camera, an additional 10 inch tablet and extra cables.
