    I love to find a replacement but something that looks exactly the same. I have been searching all over the web and I can find it. Maybe, someone here has seen it. I seen cases that are vertical but not horizontal. Please if you seen something similar or that case let me know.

    I don't know that it's EXACTLY the same, but it looks pretty close:

    You get it from their site. Look up: Nerdrelow (or something similar).

    This case was the one I originally wanted for both my MBP & iPad1...

    But never bit the bullet seeing as it was never discussed in this forum and all threads pointed towards the portenzo. (Never got either)

    i just love the fact that its hidden and it looks like a actual book not one with opening ports and etc. Im still searching for the perfect case. This is so much work.

    It really is. I too, loved the aspect of looking like you're carrying around only a book...but for $99 i'm not down. For me, the big upside is that I'd be carrying around my iPad in incognito mode...though the downsides for me are a lack of a typing angle, secure movie viewing angle (surface greatly factors with this book-case), etc.

    It's too big of a purchase at $99 for me to grab it...even more if I personalized it; which I'd really like to...

    i agree completely for an extra $120 I can upgrade my ipad. which case did you end up buying? I'm looking for a business case like the fossil one which will keep my ipad protected and hidden. I dont want any ports out in case it rains.

    I've not yet purchased the iPad 2 but will most likely this weekend.
    I'm still pondering between the 16gb or 32gb.

    As for protection, I'm in the middle of finding a low priced Apple Smart Cover. I also just purchased a screen protector for the back of the iPad, but I will not be requiring screen protection for the screen itself. As for my case/bag, i've gone with the InCase Field Bag...which I just ordered online and hope it arrives at my home before I do in a week.

    32gb is worth it if u add music and videos but if not really all your going to add is apps

    in iTunes I have:

    Music: 5GB's
    Movies: 90GB's
    TV Shows: 40GB's
    Books: 6GBs
    Apps: 20GB's

    Obviously I don't need all on my iPad...but having my music and a few movies would be nice. W/ my last iPad 1 I found myself clamoring for space and being frugal w/ my app syncing. We'll see.
