How did you get it at that price?

Is there any padding on the bottom?

I have an extra Case Logic E-Sling large that I am not using any longer since I got my new vertical briefcase.

Any takers?

-- MOVED FROM THE GEAR BAGS THREAD (by recommendation) ---

This is my Case Logic DVD carrier (APDV3) that I picked up from Walmart for $20. Not the cheapest thing around (which is what I normally go for) but I liked it as soon as I saw it. I'm absolutely NOT a "pouch and pocket" guy -- this just is a decent-looking fake-leather case with decent padding with a large zippered pocket for the accessories. The Mini fits perfectly and can be velcro-strapped in. It has an absurd number of straps and connectors (since it's designed to be able to be "mounted" in a car).

The front view from the Amazon page:


This shows the pocket with the velcro cover thrown back, unzippered, and front pulled away. You can see the Mini power adapter in there, along with my collapsible headphones. There is a flat pocket also inside this pocket (designed for DVDs) , where thin items like SD cards or small cables could go.

This is inside the case, with my black mini strapped in. I'm thinking about cutting away the "corner webbing" so that the top folds back all the way. There is also a wire to connect the Mini's headphone jack to an external dual headphone jack, which is mounted just under the handle (barely visible at the bottom).

This is my first Mini and my first case, so I'm still getting used to it. Just thought I would share what I found and like so far. It's funny -- when it's all zippered up it's still so small it's hard to believe it contains a computer.

EDIT: I knocked my other images off moving it (the attachment thing confused me) -- I'll put the pics up again tonight.
EDIT2: Fixed the images.

I actually got the 'sleeve' I'm using for my Mini 9 with the RAM I ordered from NewEgg - they shipped the SODIMM in a bubble-wrap lined envelope (approx 9"x12") that fits the Mini perfectly - at that point, I just toss it into whatever bag I happen to be using.

Exactly. Click on each of the colors available on the website. Some of them are $65, some are $32.50, and some are even cheaper.

For <$23, the chestnut/silver/chestnut is pretty darned attractive. Plus it would go well with the rust-colored REI E-Wrap XS that I have. Nice to color-coordinate my Mini's fashion accessories.

The leather Bible covers sold on Ebay make great cases for the Mini 9...and maybe the netbook stealing thieves won't want it if they think it's a Bible! They're about $8 - $20 .

Wow! Thats great! In a case like that, loaded with an e-book of the scriptures, surely my wife cannot object to me bringing it to church!

I just got one from here:

http://mydellmini.com/forum/taking-p...ves-t3760.html

Mine is on page 3, the Olive Brown one. While not the cheapest option it's highly customizable. I highly recommend psyopper's work.

That has to be the best idea I've heard in a long time! 8-)
