    Just bought Fujitsu U810 umpc - case suggestions


    Fujitsu U810 dimensions:
    Width 6.73"
    Depth 5.2"
    Height 1.04-1.26"
    Weight 1.56 lbs.

    I was thinking maybe the Horizontal Cell in size 7 (interior dimensions of approximately 9.8 7.4 1.4 in. ) and just adjusting the inside hammock.

    Or maybe waiting for the Ristretto. I really love the look of the Ristretto and the fact that I can get an Absolute Strap with it (the main reason I'm not interested in the cafe bags), but my understanding of the Ristretto is that the padded pouch is attached to bag and is therefore, not adjustable.

    Any thoughts? Suggestions?

    Thanks guys.

    Hi! The size 7 would be the best fit of the Brain Cells, however adjusting the hammock is mainly only going to help you with the "depth" dimension of your laptop, not the width. So even after adjusting you'd still have quite a bit of space in there. The Ristretto is soft padded inside but has more flexibility for taking the shape of what you put inside it. So even if your laptop is a little small (a lot of small!! hehe!!) you should get decent padding without it knocking around much.

    Hope this help, and let us know if you have further questions!!

    Thanks Nicole.

    Your thoughts verified what I was already thinking:

    I think the Ristretto is the way to go. And the unit weights less than 2lbs., its not like it's going to need the same kind of support as a heftier notebook.

    He, He. . . I'm buying another Tom Bihn. Yeah!

    One more question

    The Imago and Ristretto have the same blurb about the staps in their item descriptions:
    Most people will be satisfied with just one kind of shoulder strap, but, should you choose to do so, you can purchase more than one kind of shoulder strap and switch between them.
    So, if I order both bags with the standard straps, will I still be able to clip my Absolute Strap onto them? It's hard to tell from the pictures.
    Thanks again,
    E.

    You can't "clip" the Absolute Strap on the Ristretto or Imago. To attach the Absolute to either of those bags, the metal hardware on the strap is removed and the webbing of the strap is fed through the toothed shoulder strap slides that are on the left and right sides of both the Ristretto or the Imago. (This is after you've unthreaded the Standard Strap from both bags.)

    Oh, I think I understand what you mean.

    Ended up buying the Imago in Ballistic Hunter/Steel. I saw a video review of the Ristretto over at gottabemobile and decided the Imago fit my needs better. I'll play around with straps when I receive the bag.

    Thanks for your help!

    Why not use clips?

    Having just gotten my Ristretto, I am curious as to why on this bag (and others), the metal clips connections are not used for the straps? A fixed connection point means having to always untwist the strap - whereas with the clip connector, the strap can "self-correct". (Or at least I don't have to strain my spatial abilities to figure out which way to turn the strap to untwist it!)
