Which bag do you use for your EEE PC?

Hi folks,

Which bag do you have for your EEE PC. I am looking for a protective / small one.

I bought a bag for my EEE here in Australia.

It is a Caterpillar bag (yes the CAT that makes the big machinery) very similar to the one in here:

Caterpillar Explorer Utility Bag - Black/Yellow - Rushfaster Australia

It doesn't have that clip at the bottom but velcro in the inner side of the flap.

I bought it at a shop called Victoria Station in Warringah Mall. $30.

It features:

# 1 x main compartment with internal pocket
# Secondary main compartment
# Tertiary compartment with attachable keyring
# Accessories pocket and pen pockets under main flap
# Removeable and adjustable shoulder strap
# Padded flap and a bit around the main compartment.

It was a hard decision between the black/yellow and the black/grey but I ended up with the later. I carry a lot of stuff in my motorcycle and the yellow would have looked dirty in no time.

The model number for mine is CAT123 opposed to the CAT122 on the link I supplied.

I can fit the EEE, the adapter, wallet, mobile, keys, portable HDD, etc but I will try not to have all those things in it at the same time just it case. :P

I fit mine inside a Peli 1200 case and then fit it into any rucksack or my top box. There is room for a few other things on top of the PC but it's a perfect fit. Water and dust proof.

i got the medium, but the small might have been ok. cant remember the size of an x31 off hand

but just looked and they are

Width: 273 mm (10.7 in)
Depth: 223 mm (8.8 in)
Height: 24.9 mm (0.98 in)

so the medium would be fine and the small too small

Elecom do a range called Zeroshock. They have a special gel in them that absorbs a lot of vibrations and an edge around the outside in case they are dropped. Worked fine for my trip in metal panniers on a single cylinder bike.

I got mine in PC world 18 months ago.


p.s. make sure you take a cable lock so that you can lock it up whilst it's on charge in your room.

I used the standart one that come with it. If it looked like rain I wrapped it in a plastic bag....

I beat it over 25k kilometers of dirt roads, corrugations and so on and it still worked fine.
