    Can anyone recommend a suitable sleeve that will fit this laptop. I found a 12" version of this instore at PC World but the sleeve is short by 1cm. I managed to sqeeze the laptop in but something that fits better would be ideal.

    OK, I updated the BIOS and now the Samsung RAM works with the Crucial i got as an upgrade. YEY!

    I also got this sleeve and it fits like a glove.

    I also managed to get an Intel PRO 2915 WiFi card on ebay for £26 all inclusive, so quite happy all round.

    Smarty, thats really sad because its such a neat little laptop.

    wireframebox, that sleeve looks good. I measured the laptop myself and worked out the dimensions to be 308 x 238 x 29mm. The size of laptop mentioned on the site (28cm x 23cm x 3cm) suggests that the sleeve is too small and wont fit! Does it have any gaps inside the sleeve once the laptop is in? Would you do me a reaaaaallyy big favour and measure the external size of the sleeve? I need as small a sleeve as possible to fit my bag. Thanks!

    The sleeve I got fits almost as if it was made for the laptop. There are no gaps at all in any area. It basically is a neoprene skin, that you have to slithly stretch to get the zip around. Seems very snug and protective though, and have invested in a smaller version for the power lead.

    Sorry if mislead, I meant a smaller version of the sleeve that you can put power lead in to protect. Or any other leads as it happens.
