      Comments about 1495 Laptop Computer Case with Foam (Black):

      Pelican cases are known world wide for their professional grade containment and protection. This case is no exception. Made for a large laptop, worry free protection. Although other cases are cheaper, this is the case I choose to provide for my computer; especially when one drop can destroy data and hard drives!

              with this I have a piece of mind that nothing is going to happen to my laptop which is over 6K plus all the additional SSD's I keep in the case for dumping footage and audio while shooting, so I wouldn't be able to walk around with my laptop in anything else.

                  My laptop was getting beat up being carried in my back pack, now I don't have to worry about it. The case is very solid, everything lines up correctly. The latches are easier to operate than the latches on other pelican cases I have had, which is nice. The combination lock seems to work well. It is heavy, but thats the cost of having something this robust. It's a great choice if you really need to keep your equipment safe.

                    I use this to put computers going on Datawrangling jobs. We set it up with a metal plate in the middle, the gear goes under, the computer on top and we make openings on the side for different connections.
                    This case is heavy duty and resists alot of shocks!

                        Works as expected. Would love to see if it could be a bit smaller, but overall adds good protection to the 17" laptops I put inside them.

                              This thing is great. The only thing that I would change about it is that I would make the combination lock TSA compliant. Not a big deal, but... it realy would be handy.

                                  I feel very comfortable with my 4,000 laptop in this case, very sturdy and rugged. It is big though...

                                  I bought this case to keep my wife's 15" MacBook Pro safe and secure. I have to say, it was hard to hand it over once I felt the quality of this case. The mechanisms are solid and the design is of typical Pelican excellence. Despite reading the specs before purchasing, I do find this case gets a bit heavy once you've added your laptop and a few accessories. Rest assured though, your computer will survive some serious battle... Perhaps it's overkill for the average Joe.

                                    I have purchased many Pelican products through the years in various sizes used for hauling military weapons, carrying photographic gear and storage for a multitude of reasons. Based upon over twenty years of field experience, it was a no brainer to consider Pelican Cases for protecting fine optics and oculars used for my telescopes. With the advent of the combination lock, the additional two side latches, I KNOW that my equipment is well protected. B&H ships immediately with lightning fast communication. Having been a customer of B&H for over 30 years, one can rest assured of high quality and complete customer satisfaction.

                                      I am completely satisfied with this case! It is exactly what I needed for my 17inch laptop. I own my own fiber optic communication business and needed a sturdy case to protect my computer and iPad. It fits both with room to spare, and you all provided it at a discounted price compared to anyone else. Thanks for the quick delivery and I will be sure to use you all again! I will also be passing your name to others!

                                        I bought this case to house my Macbook Pro 17". It comes full of pick and pluck foam. It fits the laptop and there's plenty of room for other things...I fit a couple expresscard 34 cards on the side of it. Everything has a high quality feel. Nothing cheap about this case...for the price it is really a steal.

                                          The case it's self is made just like any other Pelican. The padding is awesome and the space is more than enough for me to use with my laptop. I have a large ASUS 15.6 gaming laptop and it is enough to fit the computer, mouse and charger without it wiggling around. I also use this for my transporting my pistol sense I didn't cut up the block of foam for the ASUS. On the downside the Tan color is a lot lighter than I thought it was going to be, which is a very minor complaint.

                                          We haul a high-end laptop around in our remote van to power a prompter. We wanted to protect it from falling ARRI light kits and other cases. This case does the job and at a very reasonable price.
