    For all you Z people, what do you use to carry your laptop around? I want to get a nice semi rigid sleeve I can put my Z in, so that I can drop the whole thing in my backpack and not worry too much about it.

    I liked the Zeroshock III case on my previous laptops, however I'm worried the 13" might not fit and the 14" would be too big? The 13" model's maximum width capacity is 12.4", and according to specs, the Z is exactly 12.4" wide.

    What do you guys use?

    I'm interested in this one too. I went sleeve shopping yesterday and came back with a free VGP-CKSZ1 case that PC World had but that their computer wouldn't allow me to buy... so they gave it to me! However, although it's OK, it's really for the SZ and is too big for the Z because of the Z's small back-front measurement (because of the 16:9). The VGP-CKZ1 should be much better as it's designed for the Z, but nowhere seems to have them in stock yet.

    I ended up buying a Samsonite EVA Pillow Shuttle Case (or summat like that), with memory foam interior. The 15.4" widescreen size is perfect for the Z, power brick and mains cable together. It seems to provide good protection although due to the compressive/hugging nature of the memory foam, I'll definitely use a protective sheet in between the keyboard and screen I reckon.

    If anyone finds a sleeve which perfectly fits the Z, please post links and pics! :D

    I have this sleeve for the old S series but it's 13.3" so it's slightly too big for the Z

    faberge, since you live in the UK, this might be of interest:

    I'm thinking about getting a Z and may ask them if they intend to offer sleeves that fit the new VAIO.
