Default mini 9 form fitting sleeve/case that remains on during use - 03-21-2009, 10:21 PM

I'm looking for something that will remain on the mini 9 at all times.

Any ideas?

Thank you

Not really possible, since the Mini has no fan and relies on free air flow through the vents to keep it cool. It would overheat fairly quickly if operated inside a case or with any other obstruction to proper air flow.
If you read the small manual that comes with the Mini, it warns you specifically about this and indicates not to operate the unit in any kind of confined space.

Thank you Fox, then it looks like a properly constructed skin will do.

Thank you again.

If by "a properly constructed skin" you mean one that leaves the vents clear ... probably so, but I would still advise against it. Besides heat loss through the vent, the body itself also bleeds off heat.
