    Ristretto for Netbooks

    Any idea when final info and photos for the Ristretto for Netbooks will be available? It's not me that's asking, but my ASUS wants a new home. Thanks.

    Okay...I snuck a look....it seems, and correct me if I'm wrong, that it would be a tight fit to get the Ristretto for Notebooks (R for N) into my Tri-Star's center compartment considering its width and without taking away too much room from the outside compartments. Is that width dimension on the R for N sturdy or can it be scrunched a little.?

    FWIW, the full-size Ristretto can scrunch well, as long as you don't stuff the front compartment extremely full, so I would presume the same is true of the RfN.

    any chance we can get the measurements for the padded netbook compartment?
    I've got a 2XXLT H. Brain Cell (fits my H-P HDX18t like a glove), a Sapphire/Black Brain Bag with a matching Snake Charmer, a 2XL Vertical Soft Cell, a Sapphire wallet, a Size 4 H. Brain Cell for my wife's laptop and... a school boy's crush on Darcy

    Thickness-wise you simply need not fill the front pocket of the Ristretto or Ristretto for Netbooks (both Ristretti are the same in this regard) and either should fit into any of the three main compartments on the Tri-Star. Footprint-wise the R for N should fit, with perhaps a little squeezing, into the larger of the two divisions of the front compartment; also will fit into the undivided front compartment (duh) and either to the other two main compartments, assuming again, you haven't stuffed it full

    I have to say that the Cocoa/Olive pair is stunning!

    Ruggedly handsome and the perfect "man bag" for any netbook owner.

    I also know that the Black/Steel pair, the cool color counterpart of the warm Cocoa/Olive is equally good looking. (I own a fair amount of bags which have Black or Steel as one of the color)

    The two heights for the Waist Strap is absolute genius!

    well, darn, my netbook is just a wee too big!

    ETA: the fit list says it will fit the Toshiba mini, but the mini's dimensions are: 10.4 x 7.6 x 1.3 inches. Can I assume if it's listed on the fit list then it'll be fine, even though the dimensions seem a bit different?

    TIA!

    I thought the same thing but realize there is some "give" to the laptop compartment.
