        If you are looking for a place to safely keep small gear - like mirrorless cameras - this will do just fine. Plan your layout carefully, put toothpicks around the items, and pull the foam insert blocks out carefully. It is a little hard to open and close the case, which might be just as well in some circumstances.

        Comments about 1470 Computer Case with Foam (Black):

        This case is near b perfect for safely containing my 13 inch MacBook Pro, and keeping it from being damaged. The case is so rugged & impervious, not to mention sturdy, I'd wager i could drop it from a 3rd story window, or out of moving vehicle onto street concrete and the 'puter would be fine, without so much as smudge or scratch! ( Altho the case would probably pick up a few )! The O ring seal definitely keeps the dust out, so I can only conclude it probably would be water proof for certain amount of time, at least to deep end of swimming pool depth pressures, as well? It'd be hard to find a better built and designed case, for any amount of money. I'm pleased with this purchase.

            I own an equipment rental company in Los Angeles and this case takes great care of my Macbook Pro. Plenty of room for the computer and the power supply. It also makes a professional statement when you hand it to a customer. It looks like quality. It's not too big or heavy. I can't think of one CON. Pelican is great.

            A great case for my 13 in MacBook Pro. Always worried about it in the flimsy sleeve I carried it in. Seemed like it offered no protection at all. This car is like a suit of armor. Not too big. Not too heavy. The Mac and power supply fit nicely.

            Now you too can look like a cyber tech character from the movies. In addition, this case is strong and waterproof. The latches have a built in safety mechanism and will never open accidentally, and sometimes it won't open intentionally either. Built in locks are also incorporated in the latches.

                I wanted the smallest possible Pelican case for my MBP and this one is perfect. I purchased the Pelican 1490 as well and it was simply too big and too heavy for my needs. The foam on the bottom is cut into rows that are about 1/4" thick and you can cut out the shape that fits your device perfectly. After doing so I have only one row of foam on one edge but I have 2 or 3 rows on the other edges which is fine for my needs. I used the foam that I removed to build compartments below the laptop to hold my power brick and magic mouse. Next step is to find some pannier mounts so I can throw this on my bicycle which was the entire point of getting such a heavy duty case.

                My only complaint is with the foam itself. While it is precut on the vertical it would be nice if it was precut on the horizontal plane as well for full customization.

                          Pelican cases are the best bang for the buck, I have them for all my camera equipment. Bought this one for my Macbook Air. Only complaint is: the pick and pluck foam is not layered, meaning if you pluck you lose the entire depth of the foam insert, leaving only the eggcrate foam on top and the flat foam layer on the bottom. Which means too much depth for a Macbook Air as it would float between the two layers rather than be snugly secured. So, I opted to NOT PLUCK, leaving the Macbook on top of the pick and pluck layer. It's so thin you can still close the lid without damaging the computer.

                          As my mama always said: THINK BEFORE YOU PLUCK!

                              I bought this product with foam, and also bought extra foam for other uses. Currently this case is used for transporting firearms on trips. Extremely nice.

                                    Purchased this for use as a laptop case for a 15.6" Toshiba notebook. It just fits, with a row of foam around the perimeter. I was able to fit my charger, a portable HD, and a cordless mouse in the case, too. While using it this way doesn't provide as much padding around the edges, the convoluted foam on the lid keeps the notebook centered in the case. This is just what I needed, because I wanted a lower profile that the 1490 or 1495 series. The pick & pluck foam is easy to cut vertically, but I had some trouble cutting it horizontally.

                                    B&H was easy to order from, and fast to ship.
