No padding on bottom. I just dropped my brand new $3000 15" retena macbook pro less than 1 foot in this case and it left a nasty dent. Now there's a $600 repair. Try the Brenthaven collins for more protection. Does anybody know of a slim aluminum case for macbook?
This bag has the flimsiest padding around the the edges. Having dropped my MacBook twice, it tends to land on its side in the corner, where there is essentially no protection. MacBook aluminum clam shell gets damaged with this bag with any drop on a hard surface. Clearly, an untested product.
