First of all, I would like to apolgise if this ends up shorter than my normal reviews. I aim to put in at least 400+ words of useful opinion for each review but some products are a little bit hard to review than others. I am sure those of you who have been on this site a while will understand!
Anyway, onto the product. This is a protective zip sleeve for notebooks/netbooks. It is for 10.1" sized note/netbooks and you won't be disappointed if you are in the market for a sleeve. The material is soft and smooth and nice to the touch. If you are taking your netbook on light travel such as commuting to work and the like, then this could be for you. However, if you want something more hard wearing then please think about a more sturdy alternative such as one made from tough rigid plastic.
This sleeve will protect your netbook from scratches and any bumps that happen to come its way but if you drop it from a height then I don't think it would survive the fall, or if you happen to be visiting a knife factory! But for everyday travel it will hold up fine. I carry it within a back pack personally, during my commute to work each day. Sometimes I like to listen to music but other times I will want to catch up on a bit of work or a presentation which has to be ready at 10am.
The zip is positioned well along the middle and opens and closes with no problems at all. I have not encountered any problems with this mechanism as yet and I have had it for a good few months now.
The HP logo is on the bottom left side as you can see from the picture. Otherwise it is just plain black in colour. My netbook is black so I am quite happy with this! You can get a range of different colours though, even some pink swirly ones to go with the pink HP netbook. I prefer the black partly for security because it feels less noticeable and I think it is less likely to get pinched. Touch wood!

All in all, if you are looking for a sleeve for your netbook then this is a good buy. At £12-£15 it may seem a little expensive but shop around and you may find a second hand one for cheap. It is a good idea to have one if you are likely to be travelling with your netbook, just in case there are any accidents.
