I bought this for my tablet thinking that because it had HP on it that it would be of superior quality - I was wrong. Now don't think I'm not going to use it - I am - BUT - not for my tablet I found a much better one of the same price but much better quality. Ya can't win ever time.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
It really does need a way to attach a shoulder strap to it to make it more convenient to carry with you - for example when you do not have your full sized laptop carry case/bag Making this review in the hopes you will redesign to include a shoulder strap as I will be purchasing a mini to complement the i7's I just purchased .... :-) Put a shoulder strap on it and this product gets 5 stars ... :-) Best Regards Len
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
