It's a very solid case, and will keep my laptop in one piece while I travel. But I did expect a little more. There is a little flex in the lid that allows the seal to part just enough to no longer be air tight under a little pressure. Not a big deal, I don't plan on swimming with it. It would just be nice if it sealed tighter. Also, this model has the laptop liner built in. Had I thought it through I would have gotten the other one, with the foam inserts instead, as my laptop is just a bit too small and can bounce around a little in the case. Also not a big deal, as the laptop still has cushioning all the way around to prevent damage. I tend to close it and push the top a little to force the extra air out, making the case fit a little tighter around the laptop. All in all it's a good case, and it will protect the laptop from impact and crushing, which is all I needed.
