For years I've tried to find a nice simple sleeve for my ThinkPad. I like them because they offer very convenient protection for those trips where a traditional carry case and all the assorted compartments just aren't needed. You would think that finding a simple sleeve design would be easy, but it isn't. Most sleeves are offered in goofy colors or with ridiculous patterns smeared all over them. I wanted a sleeve that was truly ThinkPad worthy. I could never imagine pulling my ThinkPad out of a pink sleeve sporting some sort of daisy motif. People would ask "what have you done with the real David Hill? "
Something just doesn't seem right about this
The hunt for sophisticated simplicity is finally over. We just released ThinkPad branded sleeves with an appropriate design. There is a 12" and 15" version . I'm already using one of the early samples for my machine. It has my full endorsement. I also plan on using these new ThinkPad sleeves to store our precious design models in. The models look so authentic that people treat them like the real thing. Tossing models around like they were built with mil-specs in mind just won't work.
I love the red interior accent
We decided to add a little visual zing to the design by making the interior TrackPoint red. We don't do this on our traditional cases, but given the scale of the sleeve it seemed appropriate. I hope you like it.
