The three products I looked at were the <a href="http://www.casecrown.com/netbooks/classic-slim/10-classic-slim-case-black" target="_blank">10" Classic Slim Case</a> (in black, $25.92), the <a href="http://www.casecrown.com/electronics/digital-cameras/camera-case-nylon-red" target="_blank">Camera Case</a> (in nylon red, $9.41), and the <a href="http://www.casecrown.com/electronics/hard-drives/hard-drive-case-checkered" target="_blank">Hard Drive Case</a> (checkered, $9.21). All the products are quite affordable, but even with that in mind, the netbook case was a complete miss. It took an HP Mini 311 with an 11.6 inch screen to line up with the straps inside the case - and who wants to lose the corners of their display to see-through plastic? The 10" Classic Slim Case was clearly not designed netbooks with 10 inch screens - unless CaseCrown had a premonition that the new Dell Mini 10 was going to be almost an inch deeper than the first model.</p><p><em>Jason Dunn owns and operates <a href="http://www.thoughtsmedia.com/" target="_blank">Thoughts Media Inc.</a>, a company dedicated to creating the best in online communities.
