Yep, I'm quite confident myself about it in the case. The case seems to be intentionally designed to take an impact so that the Cybook doesn't.
Unfortunately the Aquapac cover I bought for it has a few drawbacks. So it'll be out of the case for a while from time to time. (I'll put that in the waterproof case thread to stop this one going off topic).
