i bought my sumdex from ebags, but i haven't been able to find the neo-transit I (in black)

also, if you could take pics of the macbook inside the sumdex, that would be great!
The Sony Vaio sleeve fits exactly; just remember when manuvering the corners with either of the 2 zippers (I love dual zips ) just pull away with the zipper tab as you round the corners to avoid scruffing. I looked and felt the inner lining and there's nothing to scratch the book. There's an inner lip all the way around beneath what appears to be a nylon, non-metallic zipper. The zipper tabs are larger too, with a plastic-like enamel coating.
The fit in the Vaio sleeve inside the Sumdex carry case is near perfect, as though they went together from the start. The Sumdex has an outside pocket perfect for the power adapter. (I usually purchase a 2nd power adapter for my work laptops.... errr notebooks and leave it at work)
The Case Logic sleeve is also excellent, with 2 outside zippered pockets. It has only 1 case zipper for the MacBook compartment, however.

On the Sumdex page, I think there's only 2 colors available for Transit I cases.

The only photo I have is the linked prior ones; sorry.

The sleeve I ordered actually comes with a small bag (made from the same material) for the AC adapter and stuff, but I'm not 100% sure I'll use it for that.
I got the Bitolithic. The sleeve is as advertised... thin but I was expecting that. The small pouch is big enough for the adapter plus a bunch of other stuff.

However, that orange screen protector is too thick. The MacBook doesn't close fully when that orange fabric is there.
