    Image Unavailable, Please Login How many pages? It would depend on the type/thickness of the pages....
    Using HP bright white inkjet paper as an example. Each page is ~0.005 inch thick. Stack of pages shown in the pic is 1.175 inch thick. That's approximately 235 pages with nothing else in the case. Closed without issue, not trying to compress the interior panels.

    Just curious how resistant to scratches is the surface? I'd have it in really unhospitable environments like in a backpack, on a shelf on an airplane or bus, maybe drop it on floor many times. Not whatsoever silk glove treatment.

    1) Please confirm, what is the maximum dimensions of a laptop for fitting inside this one.

    2) Do you make this exact size only?

    3) Is the handle aluminium too, to keep the weight low?

    4) On the outer flat side is some unevenness in the design, is this for the good looks only or is there a functional reason for it e.g. more crush resistant.

    (@thoke the youtube video you referenced is not available anymore)

    Looks great!

    I have one of these.

    My Macbook Pro 15" fits with room to spare. Usually just have that with some files and never had an issue.

    MacPro 16" is about the max that will fit.
    Only this size available.
    Handle is aluminum.
    Exterior is finished with an automotive matte clear coat. Scratch resistance would be similar to auto painted surface.
    Raised areas on the flat surfaces are to lift and protect the clear coat when the case is flat on a tabletop, shelf or other hard surface. They also provide additional structural rigidity.
    Youtube vid was not mine and was taken down quite a while ago - link was provided only for reference at the time it was available.
