The Lenovo Slim Pro 9i (2023) is the top-tier creator laptop in the company’s lineup. It features powerful internals with 13th-gen Intel Core processors and Nvidia GeForce RTX 4000-series discrete graphics. With all of that power, you’ll want to keep your charger with you, so most of these case options have additional pockets.

As the Slim Pro 9i comes in 14-inch and 16-inch variants, I’ve compiled a list of cases, bags, and sleeves to fit the two sizes. There should be something for everyone here, with varying levels of protection and carrying styles. Here are the best cases for the Lenovo Slim Pro 9i.

    Neither screen size of the Slim Pro 9i is what could be considered light, so you might find you want a shoulder-slung style sleeve to keep it protected. This affordable option has three voluminous internal pockets for your notebook, accessories, and peripherals and has an adjustable shoulder strap and grab handle.

The best case for your Lenovo Slim 9i (2023) depends on a few factors

Whether you go for the 14-inch or 16-inch Lenovo Slim Pro 9i (2023) or the IPS or Mini-LED display, you’ll want to protect one of the best laptops against damage. With the weight of this laptop, a shoulder strap or carrying bag is a great idea, and the Tomtoc Laptop Shoulder Bag is one of our favorites. It’s hard-wearing, has plenty of space, and looks good.

You could also opt for the Londo top-grain leather sleeve and bring natural, hand-crafted style wherever you roam. Frequent fliers will want to check out the Ekster Grid backpack, with its easy packing style and comfortable shoulder straps. And if cost is the primary driver, you can’t go far wrong with either Amazon Basics sleeve, which will protect your creator’s laptop for not much money at all. Whichever case you pick, we hope it will keep your Slim Pro 9i scratch and bump-free for years to come.
