Notabilia iPad Folio and Moleskine Digital Folio

This iPad folio is definitely one of the most elegant ways to carry your tablet to the office. Although it's advertised as an iPad folio, it will actually fit almost any standard tablet. In fact, the description says it will also carry a Kindle or Nook, both of which are significantly smaller than a full-size iPad.

I went with a folio over standard iPad cases, because it comes with a physical notebook. This is useful for taking notes from your iPad, drawing funny pictures of your boss or jotting down information during a meeting. Lefties like me also will appreciate the fact that the folio's orientation can be flipped to suit them. Our kind often goes overlooked when it comes to these things.

Overall, it's something the hard-working geek in the family will enjoy if he or she frequently lugs a tablet to the office. You can check it out here. And if $179 is too much, the $89 Moleskine Digital Folio is an excellent alternative.
