Otterbox Laptop Case:
OtterBox Laptop cases will protect your PC like no other case available. Rugged case design that is so strong you can stand on the case without doing any damage. Bet you can't do that with those soft cases! And of course, it wouldn't be an OtterBox case without being waterproof. The case allows you to plug the computer in without even taking it out of the case. OtterBox Laptop Cases can also be used to protect Slates, Tablets, Ultra Mobile PCs, and Convertible Tablet PCs.

And a side note the Otterbox is 'water resistant' not waterproof, meaning you could take it out in the rain, drop it in a puddle etc, but I wouldn't drop it in a lake and leave it there and expect the laptop to be ok.
