The ThinkTank case, the Artificial Intelligence 13, arrived today.
For me, it's perfect. It's small, and designed to be carried vertically, which I think is cool. It has both a carrying handle and adjustable shoulder strap.
The Surface Pro with Type Cover slides right in. It is snug front to back, a perfect fit. Side to side, though, it has some extra room. You will find that as it sits in the case, there's about 1" of play on either side, and if it's snug against the bottom, you'll find about 3" of play at the top, below the zipper. So, it's not flush. But as I said, it's tight, like a clam, front to back. And - it sure slides in and out easier than the HP I was using.

Also, there's a massive, expandable front pocket, with multiple smaller compartments.
And - the Holy Grail - there's a slot for the stylus. Yes, a slot for the stylus.
Also, one of the pockets fits the Wedge Mouse *perfectly.*
And besides that, the AC adapter, the already mentioned Stylus and Wedge Mouse, a big set of keys, my Galaxy Note 2, my LG USB 4G LTE modem, and sunglasses - all fit easily inside. Back pocket too, for papers and boarding passes.
So if I'm heading out in the world, I'm 100% geared up, with every conceivable accessory, in a small, cool case.
Protection? Better than the HP I was using, because the case is semi-solid...not just soft.
My search is over. Forty bucks, including shipping.
I use ThinkTank for my $3000 Nikon D800, and my arsenal of lenses that cost much more than that. As of this writing, I own 12 ThinkTank camera bags. Plus, bigger versions of this bag, for my mongo 17" laptops. And now? I am so happy to have their product wrapping my Surface Pro, and every accessory I own.
Just got mine Wednesday. This is perfect for traveling to and from work. I needed something that I didn't have to hold. The vertical orientation is a must for not looking like a tool. It's small and slim enough to slide into my backpack if I wanted and has a great compartment for bluetooth headphones, stylus and even enough for the charger if I really needed it, but I get through the day without it.
Thanks so much!:cool2:
