SoftShell Case for HP Chromebook 14 and HP Stream 14
6 foot drop? No problem! Gumdrop's Softshell case fits both the HP Stream 14" (14-z010nr) and the HP Chromebook 14 (14-x030nr), and is the first to provide always-on drop protection and capable of taking a 6' fall without breaking a sweat. The SoftShell's unique design strategically employs a combination of rugged and high impact materials that have no problem protecting the fragile hinge and corners of your HP device from the daily abuse it normally receives.
Zippered sleeves can get left behind. Clip-on shells pop off at the first hint of trouble and rarely offer any protection. SoftShell cases, on the other hand, are always on and provide real protection. Simply open the laptop, and shut it when you're done. Simple and effective.
Flexible hinge protection
A unique silicone rear hinge bumper design provides flexible protection and ventilation for heat dissipation.

This is an easy to install and remove case and does a great job. It does make the light machine a little heavier, but the protection that it provides is more than enough to make up for that.
SoftShell HP Stream/Chromebook 14 Case
Seems to be quite rugged. A bit heftier than I expected, but I guess there has to be a trade-off somewhere when it comes to protecting your device.
Very nice case that does not block any ports and allows full use of the device. My only issue with it, is that no carry handle is offered with it...as many students prefer this when carrying. However, the smoothness and thinness of the case, could allow them to just carry with their books - with the excellent protection it offers (and yes - we did try dropping it a couple times from 5-6 feet ;)!).
Very nice case.
Installation instruction will soon be available.
