"We plan to begin an iPad pilot program with our freshmen class next year. I visited a school in Houston who introduced iPads for their entire high school this year. When I asked them what their breakage rate was, I was stunned at their numbers. They had averaged 2 broken iPads per week. This school had purchased another popular brand's snap-on case for all of their iPads. Conversely, when I spoke to another school, they reported that they had experienced zero broken iPads. They gave the cases they purchased from you all the credit. So, going on that kind of recommendation, we are interested in purchasing your iPad Podium case for our freshmen class."

have been using Laptrap cases
for the past 3 years and it's the smartest
move we ever made. Not only are the cases cost
more importantly they are well
made (don't fall apart within the first few
weeks of school) and since we've been using Laptrap, the number
of screens broken during the year has dropped dramatically.
These cases can't be overloaded with books and other items students
stuff into backpacks - always on top of their laptop. Plus the
student's like them,
which is half the battle. If they don't carry their laptop in
the case it defeats the purpose of having the case. Far fewer
students are carrying their laptops around without a case, and
students who purchased the old backpack case are asking where
and how they can get the Laptrap. I
wouldn't offer a laptop without it!"

Manatee County we have over 4,000 iBooks distributed to both
students and faculty. One area of concern for us is the safety
and protection of the iBooks as they travel to and from school.
We have looked at and tried a
variety of cases that we felt were suited for the job, and none
come close to the Shuttle. You simply won't
find a better case for protecting your iBook. Through Higher
Ground, we were able to order a custom bag that met particular
criteria, as well as prominently display the school logo.
Every person that has seen our new case wants to know where
they can get one!
There are many attractive features to Higher Ground cases, and
two that we feel make a major difference in protecting the computer:
the ability to use the machine
while still in the protective case, and the
Until recently, we have used a vertical loading sleeve and found
that the way students take the machine in and out multiple times
each day may be creating a problem. In order to remove, they
are required to grip the computer from the top edge. This pressure
seems to be creating a stress crack near the microphone on some
of the iBooks. The fact that students may leave the iBook in
the case, combined with the reinforced frame, we feel the Shuttle
is the ideal case for iBook protection.”

the Technology Coordinator at Two Rivers Magnet Middle School
(TRMMS) in East Hartford, CT. The focus of our school is science
and technology. As well as being the Tech Coordinator, I’m
also in charge of the 1:1 laptop program which is a state-funded
program that allows every student to get their own laptop. Your
bag designs struck me as practical and cool for
middle school students. You sent a free sample to me for our drop
test. Our Network Administrator was very aggressive
and took the bag to the stairwell where there is a concrete floor.
He stood about two stairs up and slammed the bag. We had an old
laptop in the bag and it landed
on the floor with a crash. I was scared to look
inside the bag.
Upon inspection, there was no damage!
Now I would like to order 230 bags!"
