My criteria in looking for a rolling laptop case for my 17" Macbook Pro was 1) it had to be as light as possible, 2) it had to have a strap that fit over the handle of a suitcase, 3) it had to fit easily in the aisle of a plane and go under the seat, 4) it had to look professional, so a wheeled backpack wouldn't do. It's a given that it has to wheel easily and be well made and have good padding. This fit all my criteria. The only thing I wasn't crazy about was that I wanted a case that was just large enough to hold the laptop and a few attachments and have wheels and a handle. I didn't want extra space (and weight) for clothing, but I could not find a case with wheels like that. I actually ended up having to use the extra space for clothing though so it worked out on my last trip. If you don't have clothing and you want to use the large clothing compartment for other electric gadgets, it would be nice to have pockets in it so things don't fly around My other wish is that it would come in some color besides black! A problem that I had was that when I put it over the handle of my 25" suitcase, the handle of the suitcase wasn't long enough, and I couldn't get my hand in between the top of the laptop and suitcase handle. I actually bought a new 25" suitcase (I wanted a spinner anyway) that had a long enough handle. I had to take the laptop case to a store and try it on the handles of all the bags to see which ones had a long enough handle. This case is well made, it has good padding and wheels easily and the zippers are good. I gave it 4 instead of 5 stars because it didn't have any pockets in the large compartment and didn't have a choice of colors.
