Got my Work in case moments ago. Came in a nifty cloth bag, but not so much quality to keep that cloth bag for anything useful. Ok.... My thoughts Initial: nice. Material is sturdy. however i can see an area where they miscut the supporting interior plastic or whatever, and as a result, when they stitched the cover on, its slighty off. Doesn't prohibit in anyway the functioning of the unit. Fit: It fits really snug. Be warned that since the speakers on the FRONT of the tablet, there are no cutouts for them so you will get muffled sound. However I'm running the music from the battery test and its not that bad. Noticable yes, problem no. Also, the cutouts on the side with the usb ports is off. I'd say about a 1/4 to 1/2" to the side. I'll probably call Gateway and complain and have them send me another one, because I didn't spend $60 for less than quasi-perfect. Also, no cutouts for the DVD. You have to unzip, and remove to swap cd/dvds. so that all being said, There are 2 ways to do use it. as a regular laptop, you will have to unzip the cover to use it like a laptop. By this I mean the cover will fold back, and you just flip the top up while the main body is still in the case. If you want to use it like a slate, you first rotate the screen prior to zipping it up and fold it flat. On the cover, is a velcro'd cutout (REally strong velcro) that is the same size as the screen. So once its zipped up, you open the cover cutout and tada!!! There is a slot for the pen and pen latch. On the back is a elastic strap that you fold the cutout cover into it to hold in place. The back also has elastic for the battery buldge, the 2 D links fro the sholder strap, and a business card slot. The bottom of the case, has the loop for another pen, but you should get one with a pocket clip because i tried putting the default pen in and its not the super tightest. if the pen is thicker, then great. ps. Battery still showing 3:20 after 30 minutes of music. Size: now it WILL add more heft if you are holding it. I think if I'm home or something, i'll take it out, but keep it in as i'm working with clients. Its nice and all, and I will probably keep it, but I wish it had a pocket on the back so I could put a file folder in it. I'm also considering a sleeve to carry it in my bag. i don't really want to have to deal with 2 shoulder strapped items. So in conclusion: If you are a student and plan to carry the tablet around in a backpack, don't get this, get a sleeve or a laptop bag so store your stuff in. If you won't be carrying a backpack or case, and just the laptop, get it. Like i said, I'm a Realtor, so i'll probably keep it so it has some protection when i'm going in the home and don't want to bring my full case with me.
