The company I work for has a requirement of performing staff training for employees that are all over the country, they are looking at an initial order of 25 laptops, with another possible 125.

I'm told that they expect to be able to ship these laptops to new employees as the contracts start up, I've got a $100 budget for a re-usable shipping case.

I'm finding stuff closer to $200, and those I'm not positive you could just stick a shipping label to or if they would still need to be boxed.

Anyone deal with situations where you need to send laptops all over the place, and use re-usable materials?

What about the laptop's original packaging?  The original packaging is specifically designed to prevent accidental damage during shipments.  Otherwise, the manufacturer may be able to help you obtain the specific shipping materials.
