I was curious if those who have the Williamsfield tote bags (I scored a Mandalay) use them to carrry their laptops and if so, have experienced any tearing/stressing/breaking of straps. Or if you just carry your laptop separately.

Just wondering how much can be carried in the bag w/out destroying it.

TIA!

I used to have a Mandalay Williamsfield. I carried my laptop in it from time to time - but then again, I didn't really care because the bag was so low cost. I know friends who have had issues with the straps not holding up on the Williamsfields because it's thin leather/fusing/thin leather vs pure leather.

Hope that makes sense?

^^^It makes sense, thanks! wanted to double the bag as a laptop bag too, but now must think twice

I have a Trompe L'Oeil one, and I've carried my Mac in it before. I'd say it holds a considerable amount of weight, but I switch bags depending on what class I have, or if I have work (some bags don't fit in my locker), so I never use a bag too many days in a row.
