Now THIS is a hardbody case at a great price!
Previously, I bought a laptop case from a company that rhymes with shmaselogic. Their molded shell casing was too flimsy and wouldn't withstand a book resting on it, much less an impact. However, the Slappa case is much more sturdy. This case can not only support a few books on top of it without caving in, but it will also protect from direct impacts.
This fits my 2012 13" Macbook Pro quite snugly. Charger included. However, I feel it would be a bit safer from impacts if there was a bit more breathing room between the charger and the laptop. If I took out the charger, then sure, no prob. Shouldn't be a problem if you have an anorexic macbook or mba.
This cost only a little more than the other brand, but it's well worth it for the protection it gives. When tossing it in the car, it will definitely handle any bumps if landing on a corner of my other junks, or if I happen to toss/gently place something on top of it.
I'd also like to mention the great customer service I received. I encountered an issue with shipping and a chat and phone call and their rep was able to help me out. I also lucked out and was able to get a black case they managed to find in the warehouse.
Wanted a case that had a hard shell but also storage for a charger. This was the _only_ case I could find that met those needs and was not overly large. Very well designed. My 13" Yoga 900 fits perfectly. There is still some room on the corners which is nice. But the icing on the cake was the price. You simply _cannot_ find such a case for this low price anywhere.

The perfect tablet case
When I travel with my tablet I bring the charger, earbuds and small portable speakers and this little case is perfect to fit all these things. Great protection also!!
I love this little case
I think I have found a great use for this case - the interior now works but you could make it even better - I'm using this as a cable management case - I am a producer so I have a number of cables for line in/out, long run RCA cables, power cords, firewire - this case is a very handle shape and size for this purpose. If you customize the inside for cable management I think you might have a shot at a market leader. Solid case, well built, lightweight and looks better than most anything else I've seen.
excellent design, quality and funtionality
I purchased the checkered past laptop case, and I'm very pleased with the design and quality of the bag. No other case I looked at had such well-designed storage space for the power cord, mouse, external hard drive/jump drives, etc. Very pleased with the functionality.
I use it for my 17" MacBook Pro. I needed something that looked professional,protected my gear, and held everything I needed.
I bought this for my iPad. I't bigger than most of the cases I've seen one the market and it doesn't have a stand, but as far as protection it's the best I've seen and I don't worry at all about my iPad being damaged while in this case. I travel alot and this case is excellent for fitting the iPAd and my headphones and iPhone---overall I give it a solid B+. I'd like to see this case with a pop up stand--then it would be perfect

This case is so superior to what is in stores. It is lightweight, fits perfectly into my Targus backpack (I promise I am upgrading to a Slappa backpack soon). Gret protection and it's perfect for businessmen like myself who need a smart looking case to go into meetings. A++ product
