@trucktipper They typically specify apple products because those are still the hip, fashion forward devices to own. You should be able to fit most modern 15.6" or under laptops. I have an Incase backpack that I bought on here previously and it also specifies that it will fit a 15" Macbook, but it fits my brother’s Gigabyte Aero 15 with room to spare, as well as my larger-than-I-would-like Asus laptop. As long as your device is less than an inch thick, there’s a good chance that it will fit.
@trucktipper@zacmil I mean… it’s not because it’s “hip”. It’s because the MacBook is by far the most popular laptop out there. Windows obviously reigns, but there are a million manufacturers. So when you ignore the OS, MacBooks have a large marketshare. So it only makes sense to market your product to its owners.
@TBoneZeOriginal@trucktipper@zacmil I don’t know… It seems like it would make even more sense to market a bag with a laptop sleeve to… owners of laptops?
I mean, I’m pretty sure the only serious manufacturer of laptops much more than an inch thick is Sager, and you kind of have to know what you’re getting yourself into when you buy one of those.
@TBoneZeOriginal@trucktipper That’s a fair point. Absent any actual data I wouldn’t go as far as to say that it has the largest marketshare of any one manufacturer, but we can all agree that whatever that figure may be it is not insignificant. That being said, I stand by my notion that mentioning the Macbook, in particular, was done in an attempt to evoke a certain kind of image. As @Limewater brought up, if the point was to indicate that this would fit most popular 15" laptops, then why not just say that? They mentioned the Macbook because Apple, for better or worse, puts a lot of effort into cultivating a brand image that positions them as “cool,” fashion-forward, and innovative, and Incase, I would argue, wants to capitalize on that. Of course, debating the motives of their choice of marketing language is kind of irrelevant to the original point that this should fit most 15" laptops–at this point I think that I’m really just being pedantic.
