PROS: Zippered area is protected by the inner material so your laptop doesn't get scratched. (Zippers were a CON on many other cases.) Nice padding. Great outer "power" pocket! Just fits! Nice padding. Easy insertion & removal of laptop.
CONS: If you're a fashion guru "plain black" may not be your thing, but, it's a case that does the job...and does it well!
NOTE: Amazon listed measurements are OUTER measurements, so if you're trying to fit a laptop that's not a MacBook 13.3" (diagonal) monitor--which is how the laptops are measured--better measure your laptop before buying. My laptop is approx. 12 7/8" by 8 3/4" and it fits snug as a bug with no stretching out of shape. Case inner meas. are 12 7/8" by 10" and not quite 1 in. thick.
UPDATE: Here it is, June 2012, and I still love this laptop case!!! Zippers still strong. Looks almost brand new. I keep the big, honkin' Mac adapter, ear plug headsets, and a USB cable in the pouch. (I've even put my ipod there on occasion, but I think that might not be good as a norm. I mean, it does stretch, but I don't want to press my luck.)
UPDATE: 2013 July-- I've now upgraded my laptop and bought a cheap nylon type carrier with a handle that also houses my iPad and cables when I travel. I do still use the old one reviewed here for the old MacBook. This sleeve was such a great buy!
Interior: Caselogic has a liner that is like a fabric faux suede vs Built is just the neoprene with no lining
Zipper: They both use plastic teeth zippers. Caselogic has the standard teeth size (think of a zipper on the back of a dress or small purse) vs Built has the extra large teeth (think sleeping bags). Because the Built was so tight, I was afraid of the zipper scratching up my laptop as it was going in or coming out. The Caselogic zipper is across the top (widest part) and 90% down the side (which makes it easier to get in and out) vs the Built is just on the top (widest part).
Pockets: Caselogic has a roomy zippered pocket with a small flash drive pocket inside. When my charger is in the pocket & it's zipped up, it's still easy to get my laptop out of the sleeve. The Built sleeve has 3 "slit" pockets of varying sizes. They are tight even without the computer in the sleeve (which is how things get held in since there's no full closure mechanism. The large pocket fit my charger with the cord looped and the loop secured in the top portion of the pocket (the opening of the pocket was in the top portion of the cord loop), the small would fit a flash drive well and the medium one might fit a mouse, but I don't use a separate mouse to be able to try it out. Since the pockets are so tight against the sleeve, it made it even more difficult to get my computer out when the sleeves were full.
Looks: The Built wins. I bought both in black and well they're just black. (I didn't want to pay Built's premium pricing for a color and I wasn't too keen on the blue Caselogic). The Built does have the blue underside of the neoprene peek out of the pocket slits and they look kind of cool they way they are arranged. The Caselogic is just basic black with a dark gray zipper and gray Caselogic symbol on the front.
Functionality: Caselogic hands down. I am able to get my computer in and out of the sleeve easily, it does it's job of protecting my investment & the pocket is perfect for the charger without affecting the functionality of the sleeve. I will be returning the Built promptly. It's a great sleeve, just not for my MacBook Pro 13".
I would have been fine to hear that the zipper was not covered and I would likely have bought another one but in 2014 no response isn't really acceptable customer service. I would have pursued this in other ways with the company but the case logic website offered no other option. I waited a month but after total silence I wanted to pass this on for consideration of other potential buyers, and I have bought a new case from another vendor.
So, initial satisfaction (5 stars) has been replaced by mild disbelief.
