    Smile HP Pavillion dv6000t, tried everywhere for fit

    Hello all,
    I just bought a HP dv6000t, my measurements are:
    14.05" (L) x 10.12" (W) x 1" (min H)/1.69" (max H)

    And I'm looking for a sleeve to protect the laptop in a backpack for school. I want a tight fit (most important) with some padding (less important) and Tom Binh was recommended on some forums around the web. I've tried several manufacturers and the sleeves are all much too big for this computer. The "fit guide" indicated I need a :
    Size 2S Horizontal Soft Cell which is 14.5" 10.8" x 1.7".

    Sounds perfect, but I wanted to know if anyone has had any luck with this size before I buy/return yet another sleeve.

    Hi Mant,

    We designed the new Size 2S to accomodate the influx of new 15.4" laptops that are on the market. However, every manufacturer's overall dimensions vary on their 15.4" screens. Though it won't be an exact fit, we are confident that the measurements that we came up with for the 2S will adequately protect your HP dv6000, with little bulk.

    If you are looking for a Soft Cell to put in your backpack, we'd recommend the Vertical Soft Cell, which will be available in mid-April. The Brain Cells in Size 2S will be available in early-May. Both are available for pre-order at this time.

    Best regards,
    Tom Bihn Sales Associate

    I got my soft cell today

    It is a nice bag. It is just a little big but better than my last bag.
