The X-series Tablet with 8-cell will ***NOT*** fit into a 12" ZeroShock ***sleeve***.

See below photo link for the result.

Thanks for that photo; I will have to cancel my order for the 12" sleeve.


What about the 13" Zeroshock Sleeve or the 14". Shouldn't one of those fit nicely?

I'm using a 14" ZeroShock III SLEEVE myself.

Think the 13" SLEEVE doesn't fit. Because if otherwise, I should have bought it instead when trying in the store. But I can't be 100% sure from (bad) memory.

Currently looking forward to try the Sumdex Impulse Computer Sleeve.

Try emailing or calling the manufacturer with the X61T w/ 8cell dimensions and seeing if it will fit the bag you want.

Sorry for bringing up an old thread. Since I'm in the process of finding another sleeve for the X61T again. The 14" ZeroShock is too large, and leaves too much wiggle room inside. While the replica IBM bag leaves some to be desired in terms of protection provided.

So, besides SFBags's 23-21 sleeve, what are you using?

A few photos of the replica.

Just wonder, anybody tried the Case Logic Reversible Laptop Sleeve on a X61T with 8-cell?

http://www.caselogic.com/14_1_reversibl ... lid=113544

The 14.1" model is said to fit 11.75" x 9.25" x 1.25" which is about an inch short on the width, but will there be enough flex...?

P.S. The X61T with 8-cell is about 10.5" both in length and width.

Nice sleeve. I just got IBM Replica from Ebay (Chinese origins). Do let us know how this one worked out?
