After much research, I decided to buy a 24" iMac rather than the MacBook Pro or MacBook Air. I needed a lot more memory but I didn't want to sacrifice portability. In my research, I came across the iLugger carrying case and felt that I could now have the best of two worlds. For me, at 25 pounds, taking that iMac on the plane was out of the question (the case adds another 5 pounds). Plus, I can barely get past the TSA checkpoint in a Victoria Secret Signature Cotton bra with its "barely-there-underwire". I just don't have the patience to convince the agent that it is really a computer in that bag, and that's not a "laptop" carrying case but a "desktop" case! Then struggling to get that heavy thing up into the overhead bin. Stressing out every time some idiot opens the compartment during travel, knocking my sensitive $2,500 machine around, looking for one of those useless teeny-tiny pillows. No, when I travel by plane, I will just take my files on one of my Mac laptops, like it's a big PDA. I invested in the iLugger for car travel and taking the computer in to the Apple store, should that ever be necessary. If I need all of my files during travel, I will just put it back in that super-sturdy original box and ship it ahead - insured - with my data in my purse on a backup drive. OK, here is my problem. I just got the iLugger case today. (It had been on "extreme" backorder - all of about 2 weeks - not so "extreme to me.) I immediately shut down my Mac so that I could try out the new case. But getting that 24"-er inside is not as easy as the iLugger.com demonstration video portrays (http://www.ilugger.com/24-inch-imac-case.cfm). Maybe for the 17" or 20" like in the video, but the 24" is too heavy for that cavalier "gripping and slipping". But, if you take your time, it can be done. However, the base doesn't quite sit right inside the bag. There's a little pocket for the front of the base but the base keeps popping out of it, causing the whole bag to be out of shape, with the arm of the base banging against your hip. With the weight of the computer and the poor padding in the shoulder strap, it is unlikely that one would carry the bag by any other method than the handles, so the base will be lower, taking your knee out. QUERY......Am I missing something in putting my iMac in the case? There was a white sticky plastic strip with two smaller black Velcro strips affixed to the inside of the iLugger. What is that for? Does it hold the base stable somehow inside the case? Preventing it from popping back and forth like that. There were no instructions in the box and the office is closed during the weekend. I've not heard one bad thing about the iLugger but most of the testimonials are about the smaller Macs. I've got to be doing something wrong. HELP!
