    I bought an InCase at Best Buy. It's great. Black, neoprene, with zipper. It's form fitting, and good protection. It's the size of a regular paper type notebook. It was $34/US

    that looks really durable. but is the zipper inside? wouldn't it damage the plastic?

    I too am seeking a case. I already have a backpack for my old notebook, but it lacks a sleeve of sorts. Thanks for the links!

    I am about to buy myself a case, and I think I'm gonna go with this one from Isis Dei:

    http://www.isisdei.com/list.php?class=all&item=roachmf

    The design is awesome, and the price seems reasonable. The shipping rates to where I live (Norway) isn't all that compared to what Amazon (for a Booq Vyper) or SFBags charges either ($10 vs. $35-40).

    I got one of these for my 13.3" and its bomb proof. Its got an oring to seal out dirt and water and I don't have to worry about in my bakpak. I got mine with the foam cut by them to fit it perfectly.

    A neoprene case like an Incase are the best. It saved an ibook in
    a bike wreck when a car hit me.
