Protective Carrying Case for the AS/400 Model 9401 P01

      Disclosed is a soft-sided carrying case that was specifically
designed for use with the IBM AS/400* 9401 P01.  The case was
designed to provide users a method in which to organize companion
accessories, carry the weight of its contents, protect the contents
and remove the 9401 system unit from the case.

      To keep all of the user's business tools organized and in one
place, the 9401 carrying case holds a 9401, a laptop computer and all
required cables.  There are also compartments for documents,
software, keys, pens and business cards (Fig. 1).

      To ease the task of carrying the weight of its contents, the
case has an adjustable shoulder strap with a reinforced pad to
prevent slippage and provide even weight distribution.  The case has
a rigid foam tube handle for another carrying option.

      To protect the 9401 system unit, laptop computer and supplies,
layers of shock-absorbing sponge foam are integrated into the
polyester and nylon case.  These materials resist minor shock, dust,
moisture and mildew.

      To aid the user in moving the 9401 system unit from the case to
the correct working position, an attached strap is provided to lever
the 21 pound unit from its snug storage position (Fig. 2).
