I recieved my X220 (fantastic machine!) a couple of weeks ago and I want to buy a sleeve for it.
Obvious the first sleeve I thought of where the standard Thinkpad sleeve until I noticed it measures 27.5 centimeters! That is more than 7 centimeters too long! I guess the extra space is for the nine cell battery and since I don't use that I would like to know what sleeves other people use?
Writing this post one more question has come to my mind: What boot time should I expect from the X220? 110 seconds seems quite a long time to me. I bought it with a 5400 RPM hard drive, i5 and 4 GB RAM. I have installd MS Office and Adobe CS5.
I have got an SSD and another 4 GB RAM coming in - how would they affect the boot time?

Which battery do you have? I picked up a booq viper hard case for a 13" macbook air and it has at least 1" in the back more than I would like. I think this would fit a 9-cell battery perfectly, but I chose the 6-cell because I needed it to be the least wide as possible.
