I have been coveting the Asus Eee for a while now, and finally bought one. Because it's so small, I don't want to (and don't need to) carry it around in a traditional laptop case. The sleeve which ships with the Eee is nice if you're putting it into a purse or briefcase, but what if you just want to carry it in your hand?
I suspected the Eee could fit into a small, zippered binder, and my suspicions were correct! Although I was looking for something by Five Star, I could only find the large binders at my local office supplies store (which may be good for hiding a 14" laptop). I ended up getting a Day-Runner for $40. Although the Eee fits in the Day-Runner if you leave the binder clip in it, I didn't want to risk scratching the Eee.
This Instructable shows how to remove the binder clip.
What you need:
1. A Day-Runner.
Step 1: Collect Your Materials and Supplies
Get a Day-Runner or other zippered binder which can fit an Eee. I picked up the 68331 model, which vits their 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" inserts. If you want to double-check the size, grab a ruler at the store and make sure the 'inside' measures approx 9" x 6.5". What I did was compare the size of my Eee against a notebook at home, then at the store used the same style of notebook to see if it would fit in the Day-Runner.
