          Comments about Pelican 1490 Attache/Computer Case with Foam (Desert Tan):

          I am using this case for both my computer and for handguns. I switch out the main foam piece and it works great for whatever I need. The locks on the case work great. It's very strong and stands up to extreme abuse.

              Comments about Pelican 1490 Attache/Computer Case with Foam (Desert Tan):

              Fine in every way but no room for extras. Yes the size is clearly defined in the item description but I got caught with needing to carry a couple of cords along with the laptop (full size.) So there is just enough room to carry the power supply and cord padded if you cut the foam for the laptop off center.

                  Comments about Pelican 1490 Attache/Computer Case with Foam (Desert Tan):

                  It's used for carry my MacPRO for field work.
                  Like all Pelican cases I own they are made to last in all weather and for pro work.
                  The foam pieces selected are problematic. Cutting laterally to suit the thickness of the laptop needs skill.
                  I like yellow which is not available for this model.
