Review: Carrymobile Sony Vaio P leather case


Carrymobile offers several choices for Sony Vaio P owners to protect their mini notebooks. One that enables in-case use of the device is the "book type" leather case that retails for $50.

Check out my mostly pictorial review below and find out how you can get this case for free.


This is what I would call a mid-range case, so the quality reflects that. The leather isn't exquisite, but it's very good. It's soft, smooth, lightly cushioned, and looks and feel well made.




I like the white cross-stitching, which gives it some visual interest, and the stitching is straight and even. The inside of the case is textured and not as smooth as the exterior; it may be made of a synthetic material.


A strong magnetic button keeps the case closed and makes the case look like an organizer or day planner.






The case isn't designed to be removed from the Vaio P, so there are cutouts and other openings that enable full access to all of the




The P fits perfectly in the case and slips into it with ease. It isn't held in place with much, so I wouldn't recommend flipping it up upside down (I don't know why anyone would do that, anyway).

Here's a look at all of the cutouts:




As you can see, everything is very easily accessible.


The book-style case is supposedly only compatible with the standard battery (shown above), but you can see below that it fits the extended battery too.




If you're looking for a professional way to protect your Sony Vaio P at all times, the book case by Carrymobile is a good choice. It looks good, it fits well, it enables uncompromised access to all of the ports, and it works with both the standard and extended batteries.


I'm using the official VGP-CKP1 leather case with my Vaio P because I prefer pouches, so I'll give this case to one lucky member of the Vaio P forum.
