I know there are a few threads about the backpack, but they didn't seem to talk about the backpack I wanted to get. So I looked at Asus eStore and found this Asus ROG G73 Backpack. http://us.estore.asus.com/index.php?l=product_detail&p=894 I wonder if G74 would fit into this backpack. If you have used G73 before and currently use (or have used) G74, are the dimension of these two laptop different so much?

I have ordered two laptop cases and neither of them fit the laptop so I had to return them and got charged for $30 total. That's why I don't want to order it and end up returning it for the third times. I tried to contact the Asus store but then they closed. I desperately need a backpack for it.

FYI, I don't like those too big backpack like this one (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16834995958&nm_mc=OTC-pr1c3grabb3r&cm_mmc=OTC-pr1c3grabb3r-_-Notebook+Cases-_-Everki-_-34995958). I just want the one that fit nicely and not too loose.

Or if anyone have used ASUS ROG G2 Backpack http://us.estore.asus.com/index.php?l=product_detail&p=908. It says it fits 17inch laptop, but I'm not completely sure if 17.3 would fit too.

On the contrary, there are quite a number of backpack threads in the Forum.

A number of us here own that G73 ROG backpack you referenced (me included).
And it's a good fit for the G74. Check this:http://rog.asus.com/forum/showthread.php?10103-Photos-G74-inside-ROG-Shuttle-Backpack&p=106612&viewfull=1#post106612

Now, that's a nice looking one, too. I don't have it, so can't vouch for it.

I bought this backpack for my G74 about 2 weeks after getting the laptop. It fits snugly but is well padded and there is a surprising amount of room for extras (I pack in it two external HDDs, two mice, cables, an extra AC adaptor, pens, glasses, and several USB sticks whereever I go). There is even room for a second laptop in there: a couple weeks back we took a trip and I packed my G74 in it and my wife's ASUS N53SN 15.6" laptop in there two, with both adaptors. It was heavy but the G73 backpack is sewn so strongly that it has lasted such abuse for months now.

Howdy, fostert..

Not sure if you have read this thread. But the OP is asking about Ubuntu.
No idea about it, so I thought you might know about it and give some input:

Thanks Pilgrim! I love to chat up fellow Linux users with the G74 and help them get their machines to a perfect state with all bell and whistles working (which admittedly takes more work than Windows). Responded.

Awesome!! I'll order that backpack. I finally relieved after 2 weeks of non stop finding a backpack that fit G74.

Thank Fostert. I'm going to order it today.

I found this Targus pack to fit a G74S nicely.

I bought mine in a Staples and paid less that this amazon link shows for it.

One lists it as "City Gear" and the other as "Sports" - but it's the same bag

Thanks Asus Guy. I saw that backpack too, but I'm not into any huge and many compartments backpack. But thanks for sharing though ;)

Best bag I've ever owned; Everki Titan. I've had this bag in Afghanistan, Germany, Norway, all over the US and all the flights in-between. I can fit my laptop AND a couple days worth of underwear and deodorant. It's not huge like you think, and it's completely adjustable like a hiking backpack.

I definitely recommend checking it out.

I had to get this for my G53SX. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16834997362
It has worked great for almost a year and well padded. My backpack has been dropped, sat on, tossed, and been on my back and still keeps the laptop safe and secure. No rips or tears, either. It says "Up to 17 inch laptop", but it fit my 15.4" laptop perfectly.. so you'll need one specifically for that laptop or find a backpack that can handle up to an 18+ inch laptop due to thickness.

So far, I have my laptop and netbook in the same compartment, books in one, external BD-RE drive in the front, and a handful of external HDDs in the middle. In the sides, I have several thumbdrives and pens/pencils in the top pocket. It weighs about as much as my 6 year old (~50-60 pounds).
