Excellent product and service

By Raul

from Memphis, TN

Comments about Tenba 27" Apple iMac Air Case with Wheels:

The case is very sturdy, perfect for air travel. It does, however, add weight so shipping by parcel service (eg UPS) may not be economical (unless you choose ground). Solid construction, high quality materials.

The only limitation is the number of internal pockets. Mine came with one full pocket and an open bottom one - there were components like my super drive that I had to carry in another bag. I would recommend adding zipped pockets inside (there is plenty of room inside towards the back of the screen).

Overall, extremely satisfied!

Comments about Tenba 27" Apple iMac Air Case with Wheels:

When I was looking for the best way to transport my 27" Mac from the USA to the UK, my research seemed endless. Do I wrap it up in bubble plastic, do I try and persuade the airline that it'll be OK onboard? Do I send it with FedEx, UPS or by other means? Then I stumbled on the Tenba case.I've since used my new purchase and all you need to know, is this:The case arrives from B&H ready to use, and the Mac takes 90 seconds to drop in there. The inserts are perfectly tailored, so nothing more to do than to zip it up.I locked the case with a TSA approved lock, put a Fragile note in the handy document pouch and my business card above it, couldn't be easier.I was nervous about excess weight at the airport, but the case with the Mac in it was much less than the allowable weight per bag. Imagine the alternative weight with a Peli Case.FedEx and UPS were charging $ - $ for one way shipping and get this, they wouldn't even guarantee its safe arrival. Forget that as an option, I can testify that the Tenba is the only way to go.Yes, it's expensive (as a one time investment), but imagine shipping it more than once, or buying a new Mac - AND the best bit? if you buy via B&H as I did, the shipping costs are included. Other dealers (including Tenba) charge much more to ship the Air Case to you.My air case arrived quickly, on time and ready to use. It's light, easy to move around using the wheels and strap and tried and tested, it couldn't be a better way to transport your Mac. Hope this review was useful!

      Comments about Tenba 27" Apple iMac Air Case with Wheels:

      I've been working off site using my own studio and computer equipment which gets cumbersome to cart back and forth. I was carrying my display for my laptop in a large container store tub surrounded by blankets. It would tip over in the car and was a moronic way to transport my display. Purchased this to make life easier and it certainly was. Price really stings but I'm glad I did it. And now if I ever traveled with it, it would be protected.

        Comments about Tenba 27" Apple iMac Air Case with Wheels:

        After a boatload of research and thought I decided to plunk down the $ and get the tenba. Out of all the cases I looked at it was the easiest to use. Lightweight, sturdy, rolls upright, keeps the imac safe, goes right in and comes right out no problem, etc. My second choice was the pelican, but honestly that thing weighs about 40 lbs on its own and it was probably overkill in my scenario - mostly local travel between Las Vegas, L.A., Phoenix, etc. I contacted lightware and found out that they have a 27" imac case in product development but it wasn't available as of my purchase date. I probably would have bought that instead, but I'm not positive. My confidence in the tenba was a little shattered when it showed up via UPS with one side of the case completely crushed. I had no intention of shipping this thing on an airplane but that really made me think twice about it. I sent it back to BH and they sent me a new one immediately. There are a few bloggers out there who have claimed to use this thing to ship via air but I would get the pelican if air travel were an issue. tenba saw my instagram post of the crushed case and asked if a dump-truck ran it over. Overall it's awesome, looks slick as hell and keeps that big machine nice and safe.

            I have used this case to travel locally as well as on flights with an iMac purchased in 2014. It takes longer to unplug everything than it does to pack and zip it up.The inside pouch holds a keyboard securely (even the thicker "old" style with real keys, not the chicklet style). I wouldn't add other items that could fall out of the pouch and get bounced around by the airline, but I have put power strips, etc when I am putting in the back of my car and driving to location.

                      Comments about Tenba 27" Apple iMac Air Case with Wheels:

                      This is my second Air Case and I couldn't be happier. Tenba does a great job in both build quality (I'm well over 230lbs and can sit on this thing without is so much as bending) and custom fitting. If you travel with your iMac as often as I do this case is a must have and a no-brainer. My first Air Case is over 3 years old now, and despite bouncing its way around the country several times, it looks exactly the same as the day I bought it.

                      The big downside is, obviously, most people aren't going to want to spend approx. 1/4 the cost of the computer for a case to put it in. All I can say in response is that the 27" design isn't going anywhere for a while, the foam on the inside can be easily repositioned for new gear, and that as well as this thing is built it'll easily outlast the lifespan of the iMac you're putting in it, and probably several more after.

                      Must have for the well-equipped road dog!

                      I've searched several case for my 27" apple imac but most of them are either more heavy or poorly designed.
                      This item is perfect designed for 27" apple imac. No matter what kind of way you are on your travel, mac are perfectly protected. well, there is one shortcoming, namely, weight. But only by this way, can the mac be well protected.

                          We purchased two of these for transporting our 27" iMacs to and from conferences. We check them as luggage or put them with our freight - either way I feel safe. They are a breeze to move, and the numerous handles make it convenient to grab from any position. The only drawback is there isn't a designed space for the keyboard, but we used the adjustable pockets to hold the keyboard box. Pricey, but you get what you pay for.
