Oh yea.....very solid case. Just bought it yesterday after reading MANY reviews. Looking for an everyday, knock-around type of case. Wanted something I could bring in the shop and not worry about it
Pros: yep...solid. Can be dropped without worry (yea it's still a computer w/ some amount of fragility) but have heard of several 4-5 foot drops survived without a problem. Much easier to hold. Comes with a replaceable screen protector. Screen protector helps knock down glare and fingerprints. Case protects all ports but leaves open camera and speaker ports.
Cons: adds a significant amount of weight to your xformer. Much easier to hold but , due to added weight, is better with two hands more often than not. At least doubles the weight of your xformer. Port covers are a little too stiff when something is plugged in. Would be nice if they were cut back further because currently they put a little too much pressure on the connector plugged in- which isn't over the top, just something to account for.
Overall a great case....if that's what your looking for. If you have some fancy leather folder in mind, check elsewhere. And yes....physics does support drop protection with this design. *cough...cites earlier review* The physics behind the design is expanding the duration of the impact (eg. when dropped) , not absorbing less of the impact. Like the citation earlier, however horribly out of context it was, every action has an equal and opposite reaction. Compare it to the shock on your car. If you didn't have shocks imagine how rough your ride would be. But with shocks your ride somehow becomes better. WOW!!!! Must be MAGIC!!! The difference is the shock absorbs the energy of the impact over a longer period of time therefore the energy 'felt' is less. Less energy over a longer time is the same as more energy over a shorter amount of time. The illusion of intelligence is much more dangerous than stupidity. We all help each other if we can tell the difference. *steps off soapbox* okay that got a bit long but worth it for a f'in sweet case!!
