    Hi all,

    I am looking at getting a convertable for video editing and the M4 looks like it would be up to the job spec wise.
    I will be travelling quite a bit with it (snowboarding trips) and would appreciate any experience you have with regards to how reliable/robust it is. I won't be actually using it outdoors, but it needs to be able to cope with temperature changes and the inevitable knock or two...

    Thanks in advance for your feedback!
    Pete.

    It's going to be the ebst fit for you, though you might consider investing in a good sleeve or hard shell for it.

    Hi Brian,

    I have done a lot of reading up on it, and I think you're right.
    Excuse my ignorance, but what is a "hard shell" and do you have any recommendations?

    Thanks,
    Pete.

    it is a case basically. like a plastic or aluminum case that secures your tablet. soft cases can be punctured or your tablet can get smashed. hard cases are hard and so smashing your tablet is less likely - you would have to smash the aluminum case first.

    But the aluminum case needs your tablet to be in laptop mode to fit. there are special tablet cases but none of them are Al

    I don't have much experience with them actually, but Shinza makes pretty good ones from what I have heard on our notebook site. http://www.shinza.com/
