Love my Bihn bags! I recently ordered a netbook-sized Ristretto for my new netbook, not thinking about the 6-cell battery it carries. Turns out, it's a less than sexy fit, because the battery -- which makes a great raised platform for comfortable browsing and typing, plus it lets the netbook run almost 6 hours! -- makes the netbook really thick, but only on one side. So it pouches out the protective compartment and sits kind of off-kilter in the bag.
The hub lucked out and the bag is now his, for his iPad, where it's an exquisitely perfect fit.
Here are pics of what I'm up against:
2" thick at battery side / 1" for the rest of the netbook
In case it matters, this is a Dell Mini 10v.
I'd love some advice on what to get that's Ristretto-like: a bag that will hold it and other things as well as protect it, and not be off kilter because of the stupid-yet-functional battery. I don't suppose Tom is thinking about doing a Ristretto with a little pouch area to hold the battery compartment, while still keeping the rest of the netbook area all lean, is he?
