Ok quality, affordable price, accurate description, fits thinkpad t420 (just)
on 8 August 2013
Very good quality.
Fits a lenovo thinkpad T420 with the dimensions 34 x 23.3 x 3.5 cm (length x width x thickness) perfectly. It is very snug fit, but in my opinion this is perfect for my purposes. You could just about squeeze a usb cable - not an adapter cord though - into the front pocket of the cover at the same time as the laptop.
The odd smell that some have mentioned is because it's made out of wet suit material and apparently this is a normal smell for new wet suits. Having dribbled water on the outside, it ran off very easily and could not feel any penetration through to the inside. Having had neoprene covers before, though, if it is sat in water for hours, it might feel damp on the inside so I would imagine it would be sufficient to protect a laptop against showers but don't leave your laptop in the bath inside the cover...duh.
I would say this is a good cover to buy for those dimensions mentioned if you're looking for a protective cover when carrying a laptop in another bag. Probably not suitable as an external carry-case as it would not protect against hard knocks.
Update at 3.5 months. Developed a small tear therefore have deducted 2 stars - I guess the laptop was slightly too big for it after all. It still works as a good backup in my laptop bag.
