Irked at Best Buy employees. I purchased a 14" hp pavilion laptop and was interested in this case for my new laptop. I noticed the packaging stated it held a 13" MacBook, so I decided to test it out on the display laptop in the store. Unfortunately I could not slide the laptop completely into the case as the computer had a usb alarm I could not remove. The laptop fit perfectly in the case length wise so I had to eyeball how much space was left for length. It looked to be a perfect fit. Unfortunately, an associate approached and told me I was wrong and thinking optimistically as my laptop had a 14" screen and I had to add an extra inch for the space around the screen for a total of 15". He asserted it just would not fit even though the display was already inside the case! I doubted myself based on his 15" theory and bought a larger case in which my laptop swam in. It was then I did some research and found that screens are measured diagonally and not across the width of the screen; my laptop was only 13.18" across, not 15", while this case is 14.2". I returned the larger case, purchased this one and my laptop fits beautifully, with room to spare. I really like the memory foam padding on the inside as it contours snuggly around my laptop. There is no side pocket or strap/handle, so if that is a factor, I'd pass on this. I just wanted a sleeve to protect my new laptop in my backpack. The glitter will not flake off as it is sealed in the vegan leather. The stylish color is an added bonus! I would definitely recommend this product and if you're unsure about the size and fit, try it out and maybe you can teach the Best Buy employees a thing or two about screen measurements.
