It's nice that Kensington finally added roller wheels, but they look and feel cheap and definitely don't seem as durable as the two wheels on the previous model.
The cushioned grip and two bar handle are welcome additions, but the designers at Kensington seemed to feel that they couldn't add any features without taking away more.
The side pockets are annoying to try to use for water bottles, and the depth is about 2" less than in the previous model. Some of the lack of depth is caused by the changes in the pockets, where the front main pocket opens in a V wedge rather than having a flat bottom allowing for more storage.
If you have a 17" laptop that is super thin then it probably won't be an issue, but I'm toting what I consider to be an average sized 17" laptop as far as thickness is concerned and it's very hard to insert into the case. The form is sewn in whereas the previous model have more room and the foam was held in place by a zipper allowing more configuration. Some of the difficulty is caused by the single grip rather than the split grip of the previous model, but if they kept the foam from the previous model it would have been much easier to insert a laptop into the bag. As it is now, I have to fight to get it in, then unroll the top back over the laptop.
As for the pockets, they redesigned those and took away multiple pockets.
Less storage, fewer pockets, less configuration, and extremely poor build quality as far as the wheels go. If those don't bother you, then you'll find the new grip and handle to be nice additions. Not for road warriors as the previous model's wheels are much better.
