I think the answer is probably "barely". The dimensions on the website are 12.75" wide and 8.5" high. Bottom of bag width is 10.25". The picture of the website shows some magazines in it. Sorry, I'm not near mine now, so I can't try to put a notebook in it.

I got the Case Logic 7-10" for ultra-portable PC case. The only part number I could find as 63-2101183 and a bar code:
85854 17097
It was at a local Radio Shack. I will just make sure that if I use the outer sleeve to store the power adapter, that I will put the unit in the case so that the LCD is turned the other way. That way if the case is bumped, the power adapter woudln't be stressing the side with the LCD. It is a nice, small, and inexpensive case. Just a little handle on top, and no huge strap.


"Germanium" Jack

I really like it. I wanted something I could travel with and would hold both my mini and my kindle.
Indeed a great bag I got mine today for 39 at best buy. It was nice because I could compare it to everything I have read here in the forums and what I want in a bag.

First of all it is sexy, tough, and well made.
Things I would carry in it:
cat5 cable
power cord
business cards
Invoices for customers (I do on site tech support)
Mini 9

Also I could carry a phone and passport for when I travel.

I was originally going to buy the case logic e-sling but it seemed to feminine for me. It really screams man purse, but that's my opinion.

Thank you for having this thread to show me all the options before I go out and buy something I would regret.

I picked one of these up too. It arrived yesterday, and I'm extremely pleased. The fit is ideal for the Mini 9 - now I can throw it in my messenger bag with no worries. It should also be compatible with the Leave it in the bag TSA screening process (no metal zips or pockets to interfere with the xray).

Thanks for the tip! What an incredible price too.

PS: I turned the bag red-side-out out for a few hours and the initial smell was greatly minimized.

Lot of neat stuff out there, but being in a hurry, I too, picked up the Targus 10" DVD player case at my local Wal*Mart.
A quick modification made the internal "shelf" usable with a couple of zip-ties. I plan to replace the ties with black ones when I get a chance. Tight pocke is good enough for the power adaptor, and probaly a mouse and a few slim accessories, as well as built in CD sleeve pockets. My Slim USB Cdrive then fit on the shelf/pocket.
You will also have some extra staps that you can use elsewhere. The "D" rings on the back side of the shelf are plastic, so I just left them, but you could remove them with a razor blade if they interfere with anything.

Got the sleeve today. REALLY well made. Sturdy. Quality cordura type material on the outside, some kind of squishy padding thing on the inside. Fancy little loop on the bottom. No extra room for really anything else as it's just a sleeve.

One problem I've had with the tight fitting neoprene sleeves (mine was a Target Belkin) is they can be very slippery!

When I first began using mine it slid out of my hands twice! Fortunately the mini was not damaged.

I've not had a problem recently. Maybe the slickness has worn off or I'm just more careful.
