DX size (or: could it fit this?)

Since the DXG will be staying home for a while (like me!), I don't have a real urgence for a proper cover- I'll do a bit of cover shopping later in autumn. Anyway, just in case, does the DX fits into a 12"1 notebook cover (in my case, the one for my old iBook G4)? Or a Macbook cover? I can store it safely on a shelf, but a bit more protection would be fantastic.

(The shipment should be out for delivery Monday- so I'm just preparing myself, and that's why I can't "fit" it on my own)

Thank you all

I am waiting on a cover to come in as well.. in the mean time I took an old binder and cut it fit the dx the sewed some scrap cloth around it stuffing it with an old pillow to protect it. It's a bit thick but it will protect it from my boys for the time. Took all of about 10 mins.

My guess is that it probably will. The Kindle DX is about 12.5" in the diagonal. I'm not sure what the actual diagonal dimension of a 12.1" iBook is, but including the bezel around the screen it is most likely bigger than the Kindle DX.
