This is a Porter bag I bought in Hong Kong last year. This price should be around US$40. It used to be my "casual" bag where I put my cell, wallet and stuffs. It happens to be of the perfect size for my Mini.

It now becomes my school bag. I carry my Mini together with a Logitech wireless mouse, the charger, cool balls (to put under the Mini to help ventilating), a pair of sunglasses, an iPhone and stuffs everywhere I go :lol:

By the way, the leather-like skin is bought from SGPstore.com. It looks and feels like real!

Just a tip for those on a budget or want to save money on the cost of bags. Thrift stores! I just picked up a brand new, never used sling bag. Padded, adjustable, shoulder strap, padded handle, light padding on the back, exterior pocket with pen holders, etc. interior padded pocket. I paid $6.95. They had a ton of messenger bags in various styles & sizes. They also had a lot of small back packs and a few leather briefcase style bags.

I'll try to post pics soon. Can't beat the prices and of course YMMV depending on your area stores.

I cancelled my order on my kroo 10" cube case cause it took too long to ship. BUT I found my old InFocus projector bag, took off the emblem and this is what it looks like

I got this bag on Ebay for $15 shipped from user coolcoolshopping. It fits the mini 9 just right. Plus it has an extra zippered pocket for accessories as well as a thin zippered pocket on the front. Shipping took about 10 days.
The model is: KUAIBU 3180A (FH-KB150)

I use a Camebak M.U.L.E. as a gear/travel bag (finally one bag for running through the airport). The Mini (in a Dealextreme neoprene sleeve) and power supply fit in the main compartment perfectly with enough room for a couple books and travel supplies. A VX Nano mouse goes in the cushioned iPod pocket up top (plenty of room left to include a thumb drive, iPod and charging cables). Also removed the hydration bag from the back compartment to store a mouse pad plus whatever else I need to stay flat. There is a ton of room left over in the other pockets and compartments.

I love leather so I'm using this bag http://bananarepublic.gap.com/browse/pr ... =375296002 to carry my stuff around. Its got a little pocket on the inside that I can put my mouse, power adapter & external HDD in.

There's plenty of room left over for throwing other things in so it makes a very good carry-on for me.

I just got this Belkin bag today, and it is great! Very well made, lots of little storage pockets, very well padded, and it fits the Mini perfectly. It also looks and feels great.
It is a great bag. It's back in stock at Dell, and actually on sale right now for $24 (normally $30):

If you don't like the hot pink inside, you can get the exact same bag with a dark grey interior at J&R World. This is the only place I have found the bag outside of Dell. It's cheaper (when the Dell version isn't on sale) at $25:

I actually bought the bag from J&R, but while I was waiting for it I stumbled across this 9" DVD bag on clearance at Target for $14:

It fits my mini great. I liked it because everything fits perfect with just enough room for a paperback and my mp3 player. This means I don't have to carry anything extra when I go on a trip. I liked it so much I sold the Belkin bag when it arrived (which wasn't hard to do; don't get me wrong, you won't be dissatisfied with it).
