Great Case. Tough, functional and looks good in “Desert Sand”

Does the main thing I bought it for

It keeps my laptop safe, so that's good. Don't love the double-hold latch design, and the lip compartment was stuck in place with cheap double tape, so that has started to come loose only 4 months into using it.

Great Sturdy Case!

The Pelican 1490 is a heavy duty case thats fits my 15.6in laptop perfectly. Theres even enough room for accessories if needed. Handles and locks are well made as well.

I've used a 1490 for years.

I've used a 1490 for years to protect my drum mics, however I now have more mics and I can't fit them all into just one case so I bought another because they are that good. I know it says this is a computer case but it is the perfect size and depth to hold my microphones. Don't forget to check out the strap for this case (not included).

awesome as always

Exactly as described in specs, Q&A, Reviews. Versatile Spacious Tough Heavy Upgraded my laptop for new volunteer position that requires portable office. This case accommodates everything, including electronics, documents. Didn't realize how heavy it is, until I picked it up. Likely add wider, padded, shoulder strap, from camera gear stash. Looking forward to using this as portable studio, especially video, which requires so many toys. Many toys require desk, table, instead of bag. Long experience with Pelican gives me Total Confidence.

question

Is this computer case sold with a strap?
Asked by: Ronni M.
Yes, it is. And actually, it is kind of a nice strap, long and comfortable, that I use it with other cases and bags I have. It is easy to unstrap and put back on. As for the case itself, NOTHING, absolutely nothing as good as this on the market! If you don't mind the bulk, but like the protection, yes, best case out there.
