IBM/Lenovo X60 tablet (one size for 4 cell battery, another size for 8 cell battery)
Dell D420 (one size for 4 or 6 cell battery, another size for 9 cell)
Fujitsu P1610 (one size for 3 cell, another size for 6 cell)
Sony TX (one size for large battery, another for standard battery)
Toshiba A135
HP dv9000z and HP TC4400
Alienware Superman Returns
And hundreds of others...

The WaterField SleeveCase is a slim, durable covering made of ballistic nylon and shock-absorbing neoprene. WaterField currently offers over 40 different size SleeveCases and allows users to customize their sleeves in a number of ways to meet their individual needs. Because all design and manufacturing are done in San Francisco, WaterField is able to produce new sleeve sizes as soon as models are announced.
