Brilliant Case for 10.1 inch Netbook
on 19 February 2011
I thought that writing this review might be useful for people looking for a netbook case. I bought a HP Mini 10.1 Inch netbook computer last month and needed a case that not only my new netbook would fit into but it would also have to accommodate the associated plugs and cables that you have to carry about with you when you are on the move. I also wanted it to look good too and not to look cheap.
I'd looked at the smaller cases that "just fitted" the dimentions of my netbook but was put off by some reviews of them having niggles about the lack of space for mains plugs and cables etc. I then came across a review for a case, (not this one) that offered some good advice and that was to purchase a case one size bigger than you required. In my opinion this advice was spot on. I went for the "will fit upto 12.1 inch netbooks" Targus case and it it absolutely excellent both in quality and size.
My netbook fits into the zipped padded enclosure with a bit of room to spare and is secured by a strong velcro strap so that it doesn't move about in transit. There's room to fit more stuff in with it, cables etc., if you like but I prefer to put my mains plug and charger and other cables that I carry with me in the separate compartment which sits ontop of the netbook enclosure and this is padded too. With all my bits and pieces in here, everything zips up comfortably and there's nothing pressing onto my netbook that could damage it.
The case itself is made of very strong nylon material. There's a couple of carrying handles and a detachable shoulder strap if you want to use one of those as well. Aesthetically, the case looks a lot more expensive than it actually is. I'm extremely delighted with mine and it does exactly what I want it to do.
My recommendation would be definitely to get the Targus 12.1 inch case if you have a 10.1 inch netbook and don't be tempted to get a case that "just fits" but to get one which is the next size up.
