    SOLO-PRO SLEEVE KEEPS MY NOTEBOOK COMFY!!!

    The "Solo-Pro Padded Ultra-Book Laptop Sleeve" fits my new Hewlett-Packard 17.3" Notebook perfectly. The name refers to hefty laptops, yet it is a somewhat roomy and excellently comfortable fit for a good sized notebook as I have. Prior to finding and ordering this product, I had initially purchased the same brand of sleeve, but it would fit my 17.3" notebook like a tight hugging glove. A standard sized sleeve would've been just right, if it were meant for the purpose of slowly maneuvering it in thru the top and closing the zipper so as to store it for only occasional use. Should you be required to use your device at least once daily as I must, you would need this roomier sized sleeve. Note, that's not intended to imply that there is enough room to provide spaciosness for much else than your PC with a 17.3" screen, or that there are compartments or pouches for keeping or transporting any accessories, other than maybe small items as memory cards and so forth. The fact is, while many other model sleeves specify 17.3", they actually measure closer to 17". To be fair, these are named laptop sleeves, not notebook sleeves, and I suppose a rather snug fit is quite reasonable and to be expected. However, there are obvious benefits to this specific model of "Solo" brand laptop sleeve. Unlike most sleeves, there are zippers on the left and right sides, which allow for both the front and back to open fully and then zip closed from either or both sides. This is not just convenient, but, during travel, this could help make security screenings in airports easier and quicker. In addition to the sheet of styrofoam inserted, it has bunches of cushiony material sewn into its shell, to provide extra protection from potentially moderate shocks. I intentionally emphasize the word moderate, since I doubt that almost any PC sleeve sold on the market has sufficient cushioning to prevent damages resulting from actually dropping accidentally, even at a distance beyond approximately six or so inches. This model, though, does offer much better protection from shocks than compared to most other sleeves. Further, the inner lining features a very soft coating on both sides to avoid scratching. It also would seem to repel moisture slightly, such as in the rain, but definitely not in heavy amounts of water, such as in a flood. This sleeve is made of durable materials and has a good amount of reinforcement all around, so it certainly would seem to last a reasonable period of time, under normal usage conditions. All in all, I was very pleased to find this particular sleeve offered at Best Buy during the same time I had ordered my new 17.3" notebook. My notebook and this sleeve are a truly great match. I am highly satisfied with this product, and I do recommend it to storage and to protect other customer's computer investments.

    I dont like to rely on the laptop sleeve in backpacks or other bags as my sole means of protection. So far this has worked perfectly. My laptop hasn't been in any dangerous or reckless situations but so far, I haven't had any damage. I also enjoy the fact that when I open my pack and this being black, it doesnt scream LAPTOP IN THE BAG. Also I find that when taking your laptop out and placing it on a table is when I have witnessed more drops and table smacks. With this, I have a bit more security transferring mu laptop to and from my pack.

    Decent protection at a good price

    Picking up this case almost as an afterthought, I'm happy I bought it. First, it's more rugged than it seems. While extremely light with a feel some might think even "flimsy," it resists the pokes, dings and dents that life can throw at our vulnerable laptops. No, it won't survive a truck rolling over it - that's not what it's designed for. But if youu want to keep the scuffs n' scratches away, and do it with style, then this is your best bet. Only drawback: no compartments for your power cord/wall wart.

    Perfect fit for my new 17.3” Dell 2 in 1 laptop. Good quality material, excellent stitching and zips around three sides making it easy to access. The perfect protection for travel as I travel with just a backpack. It’s scratch resistant lining and lightweight construction make this case easy to grab and run. And, it comes with a 5 year warranty.

    I am a big fan of laptop sleeves because I usually put them inside another bag like my laptop backpack. It was difficult to find one that would fit my 17" laptop and protect it well. This does the job. The inside is soft and the foam is thick enough to protect from impact. The zipper is strong with a seal around it. I've travelled everywhere with it and it still looks new. It's also travel friendly at the airport.

    This is a good bag for my 17" computer. It can also accommodate the mouse, power supply, and the mouse receiver while on the computer without problem. You're not going to want to drop your computer in this bag from the 10th story, it's just designed for the everyday dings and bumps of carrying your laptop in a bag or briefcase. I didn't think I would miss the handles but I do like to sometimes just carry my computer in the slip case so I have to carry under my arm.

    Keeps My Chromebook Pristine

    Picked up this inexpensive sleeve on sale for my new Chromebook. It has a nice, sturdy zippers, neoprene for durability, and a soft fabric inside to prevent scratches. My only complaints are: no handle, not even a small one (not completely unexpected for a sleeve), and no strap or small pocket for a power cord. Overall, satisfied with this product.

    I really like this sleeve. I have a Dell 17.3 inch laptop and it fits perfectly! It is made out of high quality materials, with a nice, soft, non scratching zipper. The inside is very plush and soft to also prevent scratching the pc. Constructed well, lies flat when opened so its easy to put pc in and take out. Light weight but padded enough for travel and storage. Great color and outside material. Very pleased, JUST what I wanted for my new laptop.

    This case was purchased for the rare occasion of traveling with a 17" laptop - usually a smaller one is used. The case will do the job, and was reasonable in price. If purchasing one for primary use, I'd spend more and get one with additional carrying pockets for power supply, mouse, etc., and one that has a carrying handle. For our purpose, this one is good.

    Great notebook sleeve if you are looking for a product to protect your notebook investment, and also want the convenience of not having to carry a computer bag, or if you have a bag to carry your notebook but it lacks the protection that you find necessary. My daughter uses this sleeve so that she can skip the bulky and heavy back pack and just want to carry a large purse. She loves it!

    I was extremely pleased to find this case in my local store. It is slim and fits in my carry on, providing padded protection for my 17" laptop. While not essential, it would be nice if it had an internal or external pocket that could hold a pad of paper or some document sheets. There is no handle, but don't know if I would trust a handle and maybe it would make it difficult to fit into drawers or the carry on.

    When I recently purchased a much larger laptop, it no longer fit my old computer bag, so, I went looking for a larger computer bag. I was thrilled to accidentally discover this laptop sleeve. It just fits my 17-inch laptop. Keeps a very expensive machine safe in transit. What's not to like? I also discovered I don't need a bag. I've got this Solo. And it's padded!

    I really like this protective case. It has a cushioned, soft interior which keeps my new laptop scratch free on the surface. The zipper allows you to open it from different sides so it's always easy to access the laptop. What would make this product even better is if it had straps to carry it from. Otherwise I am happy with my purchase.

    I love this case! I bought one that said it would hold my 15.6 in laptop but had to return it because it wouldn't zip completely. I bought this one despite it beinging so large, because I like the padding. It's working so well because it really holds and protects my charging cord and wireless mouse along with my laptop and doesn't add extra pressure to my device with everything in it!

    This sleeve is ok for a temporary fix. It was actually too big for my laptop. I found a sleeve that better fit my laptop and it also has a handle on it. It kept my laptop safe until I could find a better fit and I would recommend it to anybody who needed for a bigger laptop.

    I purchased the sleeve to protect my 17" Laptop and it has not disappointed. The interior is very soft and helps reduce the finger prints smudges. The exterior looks appealing and of a rigid design to help protect against impact to the laptop. I can put the sleeve into any laptop bag and it adds an extra layer of protection especially in crowed overhead compartments on aircraft.

    There isn't a huge selection of laptop bags for 17" laptops, but this one is durable and slim. First I tried just a sleeve, but then couldn't find a purse big enough to put it in, so I traded the sleeve in for this bag. It holds my laptop, my planner, a notebook, as well as my wallet, phone, keys, etc. in the front pocket. Super for the person who's always going meeting to meeting.
