    I have looked like crazy for the perfect iPad case for work and haven't found what I'm looking for. Ideally I'd like a folio style case (does not have to be leather) with slots for pen/stylus, business cards, pad of paper without being insanely huge. The big things I definitely want are magnets for auto on/off and the case not to cover the bezel of the iPad.

    So far the closest I've found is the new Targus Business Folio but the only 2 reviews I've found were on Amazon and both were very negative...

    Anyone have a case like this or any ideas?

    I am considering this one for myself. It does not have magnet though. Check out the video at the bottom of the page.

    It has won some awards. Looks promising.

    The Targus is the only other one that I am aware of.

    That looks interesting, too bad no magnet... I just don't understand why any case manufacturer would not include that anymore.

    Love Maroo's leather cases. I have a Moko II and it is very nice.

    Love the look of maroo cases, just no quality way of adding notepad or pen/stylus. I'm hoping someone gets a Targus Business Folio and does a solid review.

    Have you look at Portenzo.com.
    I got one last year and you can customize them including pen holder.

    Hmmm the booqpad looks very interesting, doesn't seem to have auto on/off but everything else.

    I just received this case and I am very happy with it. It has great looks and it's very usable.

    Maybe an option for you?

    Red, patent, faux leather on a business iPad case? Not.

    I like the idea of having a folio with a full sized paper tablet but there are much better, and better looking, solutions for holding the iPad.

    Sorry, that is just enormously hideous. It looks like you took a regular padfolio and stitched an iPad sleeve into it.

    Black leather smart cover and black incipio smart feather on the back. Looks very professional sleek and keeps the beautiful feel of the iPad intact.

    I agree - I added stainless strips from icarbons.com to my black smartcover for a bit more high tech look - still thin and professional:

    I think I'm going to have a pretty good setup going. I'll have the Targus Business Folio for meetings. Then I ordered the matte black powder coat extreme fit skin from Sticker Boy for the back of my iPad. I'm just having a hard time deciding whether to keep using my dark gray smart cover or go get the black leather one.

    HA, So much for my plan. Received my Targus business folio and they sent me the black leather rather than the grey fabric that I ordered. Also the auto sleep/wake function did not work... Returning.
