If you want a solid start for a XL laptop case this is of excellent quality. Unfortunately the case isn't really padded. It's lined with a nice black fabric, and the support straps a wide and soft; but there is a serious design flaw with the support straps. They are not well affixed to the case and will tear off the side of the case easily, damaging the case liner and rendering them useless. The attachment is weak enough for a ten pound laptop to just rip them off with a little shake to the case. The straps will not keep the laptop in place on a moderate impact because of this. I'm working on adding padding and reinforcing the connection between the straps and the case. The metal case itself is really well constructed and the lock is solid; like I said it's a solid start, but not really a complete case.
