I assume you might be in a situation like myself where you've bought an expensive laptop and realize that a case is a necessary investment to keep it protected. I've been really happy with this case. Tomtoc has done a good job at keeping the inside well padded but keeping the overall case relatively thin. It is sometimes hard finding the medium between nice looking cases, but also ones that will properly protect your laptop. While I wouldn't go dropping my laptop off a two story building, this case will protect even the most fragile laptops from some rough handling. Look no further than this case. Your laptop is in safe hands!
