Higher Ground has launched a netbook case called the mini-Shuttle which is designed to provide 24/7 protection. The mini-Shuttle is one of those cases that the netbook is not meant to leave, even when in use. It features a rigid frame and shock absorbing foam padding with reinforced stress points. The case also has a separate pocket for batteries, power supplies as well as other accessories.
The case also has a ‘cooldeck’ which shields your lap from excessive heat build-up. It certainly sounds like a very robust case and is one we’d definitely consider buying. However, given the small form-factor aren’t netbooks just meant to be thrown into whatever bag you’re carrying? The case should fit netbooks with a display size of 9-inches or dimensions of 10.2” x 7.2“ x 1.25” should fit. As far as we can tell the mini-Shuttle is available in the US only for $34.95 but is currently temporarily out of stock.
