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

        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.

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

            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.

              I have to travel internationally and need my equipment to arrive safely. I chose this brand because I've used an earlier model with perfect results.

                  Great case on wheels. Even the folks at the Apple store were impressed.

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

                      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.
