The SafePORT® Air Cushion System

How SafePORT works:
  The System combines vented air cushioning and high-
  density foam padding in a single chamber.
  Padded shock reducing PVC panels, covered with soft
  Nyflex material lines the notebook compartment, providing
  additional cushioning from side impacts. These specially
  engineered polyurethane pillows “float” the notebook
  inside the case.
  The four cushions, 2 for side impact protection and 2 for
  vertical impacts, are adjustable.
  Two self-closing straps are placed across the top of the
  notebook to minimize movement.
  If the case is dropped the pillows absorb shock and slowly
  force air out of the vents on impact. The pillows then
  return to their full protective strength.
                                           Ultimate Protection

What is the Dome Protection System™?
The Dome Protection System (DPS) is the first sidewall impact
notebook protection technology developed to help prevent scratches
caused by a screen being forced into the keypad – a common
problem caused during travel.
                                        If dropped, weight is
                                        dispersed to the outside
                                        edges where the notebook
                                        is significantly stronger.
The System is a series
of layered, shock-
absorbing circles
which are inserted
into the walls of a                      The result is less pressure
notebook case.                           on the most vulnerable
                                         area, the center of the
                                         screen and greater overall
                                         protection right where it’s
                                         needed most.

Coupling DPS with SafePORT means ultimate notebook protection!
