Otterbox 7030 Laptop Case Review

otterbox-7030

Big beefy laptop case

Otterbox has made some hardcore cases, and this laptop case is no exception. If you love your laptop and are prone to banging it around (or having things bang into it), this case is your best bet for keeping your baby as safe as possible. That is, if you have the back and shoulders of a damn body builder…

For a short, scrawny girl, carrying this case around was a biotch.

The case itself weighs 6 and 3/4 pounds, plus my honkin’ laptop of around 4 pounds, means fricking eleven pounds slung over my back along with a backpack and purse. With a backpack full of textbooks, I was seriously hurting at the end of the day. You may call me a weakling, but I can assure most people toting around laptops are in worse shape than I.

Here is some information provided by Otterbox about this laptop case:
