I'd like it as a normal notepad/portfolio case to carry any hardcopies I had.

Glad you found a case you liked but that one is definitely not for me.

What!? That looks like someone held my grandpa at gunpoint, stole his belt and shoes and made an iPad case out of it.

This is an ugly case. It looks destined for old people, over 65 years old...

I don't like it and I am of grandpa age. The iPod is a minimalist design and this case screams that "more is more". It might suit the Chairman of the Board of a Fortune 500 Company but not all you oh-so-trendy hipsters, geeks and yes, a few of us grandpas.

I actually like it, but not for 80 bucks. 40 maybe

Forgetting for a moment the questionable aesthetics, and those are personal taste after all, the design is terrible from a usage and protection standpoint. The credit cards hard edges are going to be slammed into the screen. Sure glass is much harder than the plastic but the iPad has an oleophobic coasting which could get scuffed up over time. The second problem, and bigger problem, is the flap with the brass snap on it. All it is going to take is one careless close with flap towards the screen and you could end up even cracking the screen, the default position of that flap is terrible. On top of all that I really don't like cases that cover the bezel. I hate when my finger runs into the edging on something like that but that is personal preference.

Excellent feedback before I purchase it. First look, I like it because it looks classic and as clovis said looks like indiana jones. It is not that old looking and might look cool in office. But after several people mentioning it, I have a second thought. Hmmm... may be not.....now, I am not sure. :D

Next time you want to buy a shirt or tie for work, make sure you run it by us first.......that way at least you'll know how some of your coworkers will respond when you wear it.

I'd say buy it if you like it but it definitely isn't Indy. Indy would be darker and distressed.

How you suppose to use that as a stand?

How you suppose to make it stand in different angels so you can type and watch movies or video chat with your g/f, ex g/f, or any woman you just met 30 minutes ago?

That case does not worth 79 dollars dollars.

I respect your taste. It shows a certain adventurousness.

The little flap thingy takes some guts. The little flap thingy with the snap.

I don't know. I just don't swing that way ;)

Ok. Here are my alternative iPad case
http://www.booqbags.com/laptop-backpacks-laptop-bags/booqpad-iPad-2-agenda/booqpad-gray-green-ipad-agenda_2 -> iPad 2
http://trendydigital.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=33&products_id=128 -> ipad 2
http://www.trendhunter.com/mobile-trends/portfolio-ipad-leather-case -> ipad 1
http://www.brookstone.com/sl/product/69285-tablet-portfolio.html -> ipad 1

I think ipad2 and ipad1 case will be swappable because there are not too much different in height. Or may be, it will have too much space?

why does it opens to the wrong size? btw those credit card holders is asking for disaster.

I think any card holder would be much better suited for business cards then credit cards.
I really like the idea of the booqbags case, the leather one is very nice looking. I would probably get one if I had a use for it. Like in school or office meetings, even with an ipad its still hard to beat a pen and paper, especially if your using the ipad for email, or the web. It makes sense that the ipad is on the left because most people are right handed.
I am still waiting for my portenzo case though....

If it works for you, great. Just glad that you know it's an iPad 1 case.

Looks nice, but no cover is useful to me that doesn't double as a stand. I've been surprised at how many don't! I actually only found one on Etsy (when I looked a couple weeks ago).

Here is a couple good options. The Smart Blazer2 is great alone and has the auto sleep/wake function for iPad 2. It's about the same price of the Apple leather smart cover after shipping in a sweet black and red. The Flack Jacket is very well designed and priced. I have one for my laptop. It's probably overkill to use both the Smart Blazer and Flack Jacket, but one can't be too careful when working in a school. The Flack Jacket and the Apple Smart cover would be a good combo too.
