    hmm. It's not quite like that, but it's a slide-in sleeve. Orion, made by incipio. I think it's the only sleeve like that...

    I have one and I'm very happy with it.

    Yes, I think this is what the OP is looking for. Good find, mshaf!

    yeah i saw that one, but according to the reviews, if i was to get something that big, i would like a place to put the power supply

    How is the cushion? I was looking for something like the one i saw on amazon, so i can add a notepad and keep everything looking clean and simple made of leather (or faux leather)

    how is the one from Orion? is there enough cushion for days when i decide to throw it into my backpack with a few books?

    The Orion is strictly a slipcase. The material is semi-stiff and I think there's adequate cushion to be mixed in with books in a backpack. The fit is excellent for the MBA. When I travel, I intend to put my MBA in the slipcase then into a notebook backpack.

    Still in School,


    I've been wrestling with the same problem. How to transport the MBA. My solution has been to go with an Incase Sleeve and a Ristretto for normal use. For meetings and the office I'm going to pick up a sleeve with a pocket to throw a notepad/moleskin into.

    Two options

    1. Waterfield Designs Sleevecase, horizontal w/flap and back pocket

    2. Fabrix cases. Keep the MBA in the sleeve, throw it into a briefcase for work or travel, take the sleeve into meetings with a notepad in the back pocket.

    Can't think of any other solutions.
