There are plenty of companies offering protective sleeves for netbooks with foam padding to protect your little laptop from bumps and bruises. And then there’s the Sumdex Aircube Netbook Sleeve for 10 inch netbooks. Instead of foam padding, this case uses pockets of air to cushion your netbook.

The sleeve is also water resistant (but not waterproof),  TSA checkpoint friendly, and comes with a lifetime warranty.

You can pick up the netbook sleeve for just over $16 from Amazon. I haven’t had a chance to test the netbook sleeve myself, but nDevil has posted a hands-on video, which you can check out after the page break.

What do you think? Would you rather pad your netbook with foam… or air?
