So I asked her if she could make a variant of that bag for me, to fit the EEEPC in. She agreed, and we agreed on a price. We're still thinking about a design to put on the flap (I suggested a kodama, since that is what the laptop is called -- it's small and white, after all), but it remains to be seen if that would 'work'.
I consider getting a designer bag an act of emancipation on my part. ;)
