Having recently purchased a used Toshiba Portege Z830, my next step was to protect it while being practical. Originally I researched sleeves thinking I would keep it in there for daily around the house use and add an attache style for carrying the ultrabook and a Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 safely on trips. Knowing and using Case Logic products for many years now, when I came onto this one for an extra $6 I could have a REAL protective "sleeve". With the Portege, I can leave the top unzipped to slip it in and out, sometimes just leave it in the case because the lid stays open just enough for full screen viewing (but not for long periods ... heat) or occasionally set the computer on top to isolate it from my legs when it gets too warm. I had purchased a cheap hardboard clipboard, took the clip off and use it as a flat surface to facilitate the airflow underneath. I still use the board with this case for the same reasons and there is still plenty of room. Haven't tried yet, but there may be enough room for my tablet (sleeved) for around town trips. I use an old phone holder for the power cord that snaps to the handle
My one disappointment is that I'd hoped it would have a tighter fit, you know, like a glove. Even with the minor amount of shifting though, this thing is REALLY PROTECTIVE. Not for sitting on, playing frisbee or foolishness, but serious protection from regular use.
Not every bag is perfect for every situation, so we pick our priorities. Case Logic can offer a high quality build, versatility, good looks and in this case, protection.
Note: the Case Logic 14" Attache case is on radar for heavy traveling because it should hold this one in a compartment, the Galaxy Tab (with leather cover) in one, extra stuff and shoulder strap (for hands free) ... and Walmarts prices were the best for both. Thanks!
