    Checkpoint Flyer Laptop Case Help

    I'm looking into buying the checkpoint flyer but I'm not 100% sure what size laptop case I need.

    I have a Lenovo Ideapad S12 which has a screen size of 12.1" widescreen. But it also has a battery that extends out slightly past the back of the netbook.

    Any help or suggestions is most appreciated.

    Hi CoolB,

    Welcome to the Forum. The Brain Cell sounds like what you want and the sizing chart for the Brain Cells can be found here.

    That said, I do not see the S12 listed but do see the S10 listed. However, the dimensions the various sizes will accommodate are posted there as well. So if you have your dimensions, it should prove pretty painless to determine.

    Merry Christmas!

    I think that this list would be more useful than the Brain Cell list.
