After reading the dimensions of this case, I knew my iPad2 would fit inside, I just wasn't sure if it would be a good fit since it is bigger than my tablet. The layout of the interior of this case, however, makes it just right. On one side of the inside of this case there is a mesh pocket. On the other, there are Velcro straps. I sit my tablet in the case and wrap these two straps around it, sealing it with the Velcro, and it securely holds my tablet. The straps are elastic and they are adjustable so I can make sure that they have a firm grasp. Once I've placed my tablet in these straps, it barely moves. I use the other pocket, the mesh one, for holding pens, Post-It Notes, a slim paperback book if I'm reading one currently and occasionally my phone, my keys and my wallet. This mesh pouch goes halfway up the inside of the case, so you can store any number of items in it without it disturbing whatever you might place on the strap side. There is a nice black felt like material covering the entire inside of the case.
The back side of this black case is a nice brushed material with stitched vertical tuft like cushions. The front has the same solid material with a small vertical band with the Case Logic logo. I think it is a very attractive looking case. I'm not sure if you can tell from the pictures, but the back side that has the tufted cushions is the side where I strap in my tablet. This provides good cushioning in case of drops. The case is also hard and stiff - this protects whatever might be inside - I've dropped my case before with my tablet inside and there was no resulting damage, to either my tablet or the case.
The carrying straps aren't thin, they are thick and strong - I certainly can tell that they are in my hand because of this. When I open this case, I can remove the straps from my tablet and laid out on a table at my local Atlanta Bread, I can work on it sitting right in the case. And the black fabric keeps it from moving around. Because my items on the other side are held in by the mesh pocket, they stay in place when the case is fully unzipped (it has 2 durable zippers) and laying flat.
I did want to mention one last item that might be useful. I've been caught in the rain with this case on several occasions, and while it may not be water proof, it certainly is water resistant. When the rain hit this case, it just rolled off like rain drops do on a well waxed car. When I got home, I checked on my tablet and it was not wet at all.
Some things you should know:
It's semi-rigid, even on the edges, so you have to fully unzip at least two of the three sides to get the laptop out -- not great for quick airport grabs. I don't think you will have to remove it for x-ray anyway, because it's just the laptop (and no accessory pocket).
It's padded inside on the top, but has semi-rigid (non-scratch) "cooling channels" on the bottom. The idea is that you will zip this thing open and operate it in the case. Cool enough idea, but:
(1) I have no idea why you would not just take a 3-pound laptop out to use it.
(2) There is nothing like corner straps or Velcro that would hold the laptop in the case when open (the only strap being vertical down the middle, which I will ignore), and
(3) They installed two heavy elastic straps on the sides that hold the case closed after you have opened it about 45 degrees. If you open it to a good viewing angle, those elastic straps will work hard against the laptop hinge, and close the laptop once the hinge is weak. No thanks.
By the way, those side elastic straps got pinched in the laptop the first time I closed the laptop after using it in the case, so total fail on that whole concept. I may just cut them off.
On the up side, great fit, good construction, and good protection for the price. Probably better than neoprene against, say, a sharp corner pressing into the middle of the laptop screen.
