I’ve been carrying my netbook around with me a lot and decided to get a case for it. I didn’t want to get anything that was too big and take away from the sleekness of the device so I went with a tight-fitting neoprene case. It makes it a little less slippery so I’m not as afraid it will slip out of my hand, and in the frightening even that it does, will add at least a little bit of cushion to the fall. Having the case on it also allows me to put it in the trunk of my car without worrying about it getting scratched up.
The case was only about $10 shipped and there’s lots of them available in multiple colors on ebay. The one I got is also reversible so it’s red on one side and inside-out it’s all black.
