The reason for the 4 stars instead of 5 is because the type cover retention strap doesnt work right. It works ok, but it will slip off causing the cover to open when carrying. Also the case doesn't allow for the type cover to fold all the way back. And if you are going to be using the pen for writing or drawing the hand strap causes the Surface to be unstable and move.
This case is great and expensive lol. and honestly I have only found one design flaw. When using a security cable, for like college, the case wont allow the cable to attach properly. So they didnt design it with that in mind but the protection is totally worth the risk as i will probably drop it before someone steals it
Bought this for my surface book and before I even turned on my computer the rubber band broke on this case . However, it fits the laptop like a glove, but it's a little expensive for a plastic case in my opinion. Better than nothing!
