Brilliant Case! I didnt get this free with my notebook, I had to go and buy it separately and it was rather expensive at the time but with hindsight it's a brilliant purchase.
Most important thing is that it protects the laptop, which is does very efficiently.. there are never any dust signs when a latop has been inside it.
Fits 16inch laptops very well and you can even fit 13inch ones in without them moving about to much in the case (not ideal but handy some times)
Haven't tested this fully, but the bag is certainly shower proof so you can walk in rain showers without worrying about it, I havent been in heavy showers but I can imagine that's pushing it slightly and it may not be waterproof totally.
Straps inside which keep the laptop in place are good and you can adjust them, keeps the latop more secure.
I have actually had my laptop in it and the bag fell of a seat (train) but again the laptop didn't break and there was no damage so thats got to be the case, because im sure if it had fell without a case it would be damages.
The case on it's own is very light, so doesn't really add much weight to the weight of your laptop.
The 2 zipped pocks are useful, especially if you're carrying around paper work with you as it fits in very well, and keeps flat as the pocket is against the laptop. The zips are also very good quality, and tough so they will be very unlikely to break off which is a bonus.
Easy to carry and the wait is perfectly balanced, so the laptop bag isn't pulling one way or another.
It's lasted me 2 years now and still in brilliant condition, there are no signs of ware or bumping at all.
The last, and maybe most crucial for many people in business is the look of it, and it certainly delivers. I think this is the best looking case that i've ever seen before, and the red colour on the case goes well with the black to help it stand out more.
Extra padding on the ends allow for extra protection, and the fact that the case is so slim helps the attraction of the case.
There is a few disadvantages..
The main one being that there are a lot more protective cases out there, as this one does basic protection but too much banging and you could easily see the contents breaking.
The handle isn't actually brilliant, I found that after holding it for around half an hour it started to dig into my hand which was painful because it's rough.
When I first brought it there was a bad smell inside the case a sort of plasticy/rubbery smell, it soon went but it wasn't the best thing to open up a new case and smell.
Handle isn't the biggest, so I can imagine if you have large hands it will be hard to fit your whole hand through it so could mean carrying it in a different way which may not be ideal.
Overall it's a brilliant case
Summary: high quality laptop case
