    There are four case threads on the first page or two of this forum.

    I had seen those, but they all seem to be folio style cases. I am after if a standard 10" netbook one will for it with the keyboard attached?
    I guess so but wanted to double check :)

    Check out the one I posted in this thread. $5, perfect fit with and without the dock. Many 10" ones will fit. I say go into Walmart, Target, Marshalls or TJ Maxx and bring the TF with you and try out some cheap ones if you don't want to wait for a cheap one from China. Ones that say they'll work with 11 and 12" ones will be too big. And stay away from tight fitting cases with zippers for obvious reasons.

    Better yet.....get this one. For $5 shipped from amazon (two days for me), I'll try it out as it's probably a little thicker and nicer than the $5 one from China. I had the next size up one from Kensington, and it's nice, but too big.

    I think this one will be too small. I also have the one size up, but that one is quoted to be 10.2-11" in size (it IS too big, but not by a lot when you put your keyboard in as well)

    Although in the picture there's material infront of the zipper, I think if turned upside down (or moved around), it WILL go past the material and rub against the zipper, which will scoff up the nice edges that the TF has

    I bought a Wenger case (WA-7615-02) for 10.2" netbooks for $40 at Staples. Its got two zippered compartments (and the zipper does not come close to the TF) so you can either put the dock in one and the TF in the other or put them docked together in the padded compartment. There are also two smaller pockets, one of each side of the case) that you can use to hold other things, such as the power cord and any other items you use with the TF, like a stylus. It has two handles which make it easy to carry. Overall, works great for me.

    I bought my pad a week or so before I was able to find/buy the keyboard dock. As a temporary measure, I bought a $7.21 faux suede zipper case for the pad on Amazon. However, the case works even better for the pad/keyboard combo. It is available in many colors. The brand name is Crown.

    I agree. I have been traveling with my TF in this case and it works great.

    Targus 10" netbook case works fine, plus has extra room for accessories. I didn't like the NON-detachable shoulderstrap, so I cut the plastic buckles off, and put some "Nite-ize S-biner"s on. Part# TSM097US-02

    And usually I use a Toshiba 10" netbook soft-case then put that inside the Targus case. No damages so far, carrying it on the bike on my back with my rifle... :)

    I just received my Finatex Extra Small Case (Coffee Brown) from B&H (here: Finatex Extra Small Case (Coffee Brown) )

    pretty happy with it. it's relatively-slim, keeps its square shape (so far), almost a dead ringer in terms of color for the transformer, has some extra compartments too.

    Looks like a quality product, and the straps are not just from side to side, as with most cases, but rather from front to back (which I think helps with the way it sits on your shoulder).

    For those who listen to a lot of music on their TF, there is also a sleeve on one side oft he strap that you can feed your headphones through, with a hole for them to come out neatly.

    I tried to attach pictures, but getting some errors right now. will post later if I can.
