Looks a good price but not the same degree of protection IMHO

ive got one of these and i find it next to useless, it wouldnt protect against any knocks or bumps, also it has no handle or carry strap, it only protects against dust and scratches.

Agree with dwl99: the dealextreme sleeve is much thinner.
(you get what you pay for)

Does anyone know if this deal has room to store the power supply etc as well as the actual laptop?

I recently purchased the 10.2" version for my NC10, its a very snug fit with standard battery..... no room to even consider having my extended battery fitted, let alone a psu!

Thanks for that iahonor, that is what I was concerned about.

Does anyone sell a case for 8.9" netbooks that has room for the psu or larger battery etc? It seems like such an oversight!

I think the idea is you go out and about and use the netbook then return home to charge it - not really intended for long term travelling.
If you are long term travelling stick that in one of your other bags.
The appeal of such cases is portability and form factor in the same way as the netbook is.
I am sure that there must be other cases which can carry those but they are a waste of space for many i expect.

This thing is buttugly though - especially with the handle on that side ..just looks wrong.

I bought the bigger one as it gave the extra room for my larger battery.

+1 they sell this in PCWorld for £14.99 and it is definitely not a looker but does offer better protection compared to the dealextreme slip case sleeves

im sure crumpler do a nice netbook bag but its £70 :shock:

edit:
ah ha found the mini review i was thinking off, includes this belkin bag and a crumpler breakfast buffet

Looks pretty cool, think it would be okay for Acer aspire. Am tempted.

good price. thanks

i agree with u n it dont have a strap. belkin is such a nice little quality carrier! u can even use it as a mini messenger bag

I prefer this one as its leather and looks a lot nicer and you can keep it in the case while it is plugged in and charging. ]http//ww…8-2

Voted hot - good find. I ended up buying the Aha Ariel bag from here a few months back - note the 8.9 to 10.2 size is best for Acer One with a bit of room to spare - the 7 to 8.9 size is a very tight fit (sent mine back and replaced with larger bag)!

Was it a 10.2" version of the Belkin in the original post that you purchased. If so, can you advise where you got it from. I like the style of the Belkin but have only been able to find the 8.9" version.

Cheers


ooops...
I guess i should have looked harder, here it is on Play. (yes i know its currently out of stock)
