    Hey,
    So I use this laptop for lighting design and tech work, long story short I need it to be durable. I want something that I can pretty much attach to the outside and never have to worry about taking off, which is why a briefcase won't really work for me.

    There are hard cases out, but I think I would like somthing that is rubberized for the exterior, it'll grip onto the top of roadie cases better.

    Any Ideas?

    I ordered one of these from this ebay seller thursday. I'll let you know how it looks/works when it gets here.

    Seriously considered the moshi codex, which I suspect might be better suited for your needs. I just needed/wanted something to protect from bumps/dings around the house.

    Sylar has a very good post with great pics on the moshi here.

    I have used the Axio and Booq cases but decided to get something that would permanently be attached to the laptop.

    Based on a recommendation from a friend I am going to order the Case-Mate signature suit on Monday (Link).

    Regards,

    nothing is super protective. i have a booq case for my 15". i dropped my bag and fcuuked the exterior shell a little bit near the apple sign. I think my pens or other items in the bag damaged it. i put a bandage over it because i don't wanna see it.

    Don't drop you bag

    I am not the OP but...

    Yes, I am going with the Carbon Fiber. What's an extra $100 when you are spending $150? Case Mate currently has a 10% promotion. I will post a review and pictures when it arrives. They case page reports "shipping in a week" for a few weeks now. I am going to talk to customer service tomorrow and see what the real ship time is.

    Regards,
    Enzo
