Question Netbook Owners What case are you using?

I know there's a handful of netbook guys on here now. What case are you using to carry?

My Acer just came with a sleeve, so I bought on of the generic ebay Chinese "memory foam" cases for $25.

Like this

It works OK, but with the power cable/brick, ethernet cable, iphone cable, Arc mouse and a mini USB hub it is a little crowded. I know there's got be something better out there.

I've just got a plain sleeve I ordered off of eBay. It only holds the Netbook itself and if I need to carry more it goes into my backpack. I normally do not carry the power cable and mouse with me so I didn't need anything more than that.

I have carried mine in the knee pocket in a pair of cargo pants, but that doesn't work everyday.

I got this gay form case from frys but it works perfect, just makes you look like a douchebag carrying it. I haven't really got to use use my dell mini yet, just watch videos. I hope to get some wifi hax.

it was just a joke, i haven't purchased a netbook, or any sort of mini yet.

I'm a stickler for a big screen. I do a lot of Marketing/Photoshop/Illustrator work on the side, and so I like my laptop to have a big screen.

This Dell Precision M6300 is a bitch of a heavy laptop, but it fuckin smokes
