I'm not really into leather cases, but I would go for the verve or the yoobao.

My parents' iPad has a Yoobao case and having inspected it personally, it is made from PU (polyurethane) leather.
In a manner of speaking, it is based on genuine leather (i.e. came from an animal), but the process of manufacturing it essentially removes many of the aspects one normally associates with genuine leather, such as developing a patina or "seasoned with age." In some countries, PU leather is not permitted to be advertised as "genuine leather". It can be manufactured cheaply, hence its price.

Is It me or nobody uses their iPad case to carry some other stuff - business cards, some papers given at a meeting etc..? I have a griffin case and where I can put stuff in the flip side of the cover and it is great.. It lacks the functionality of serving as a stand.. When I want to type in landscape mode on a desk/table... If I could find one with these characteristics.. I'd switch in an instant.
I agree with you, I go back and forth about getting a case that holds a notepad that I could use in meetings and one with a built in stands for typing, viewing movies.Originally Posted by Amorissette
Be sure and tell us how you like it if you decide to get it.
Why wouldn't you just use your iPad to take notes?Originally Posted by ajneuman
