As more and more people are making the iPad their daily driver, we’re seeing more and more cases that allow us to carry more than just the iPad inside.  Cases which have room for all of our daily essentials, such as power cables, pens, a stylus, paper etc.  The Portino Leather Business Case from CE Supply Store is one such case.  Not only does the case have a spot for the iPad but also comes along with a spot for traditional note pad as well for those times when you need to go old school.  The case is crafted from authentic leather and offers a set of convenient handles for easy transport.

Inside the packaging you’ll find just the case.  No extras come along with it.

Here’s what CE Supply Store has to say about the Portino iPad Black Leather Business Case.

The Portino business case for all iPads and other similar-sized 10″ tablets is a sophisticated and functional carrying solution for professional tablet users on-the-go.

The Portino case is made from authentic leather.  The exterior of the case has an almost fabric texture and feel to it.

The two handles retract easily, so that you can store them away when you don’t want to use them.  When you do they slide out.

A single zipper runs the entire exterior of the case.  The case is light weight, weighing in at less than half a pound.

The interior of the case is divided into two sides.  They are kept separated by a stiff divider.

On right side you’ll find the spot where you’re meant to store a 10″ tablet.  A large piece of adhesive holds your device in place.  I understand that by using adhesive the case becomes universal and it makes it so that it can work with any tablet.  However, I’m not a fan of this method of attachment.

The dividing flap actually has magnets built into which work with the iPad’s automatic sleep/awake feature.  When you close the case the iPad goes to sleep and when you open the case the iPad wakes up.

On the left side there’s a slit where you can insert traditional lined paper pad.  There’s also a loop for keeping a pen or stylus.  On the opposite side there’s a divider where you can store papers, business cards, notes or other small items.  A see through windowed pocket is perfect for your own business card to serve as your identification.

If you’re someone who needs to carry an iPad and wants to tote around a little extra along with it.  Or if you’re someone who is an iPad user but still relies on traditional paper as well and has been looking for a way to combine the two.  You’ll want to have a look at the Portino iPad Black Leather Business Case from CE Supply Store.  It’s a sophisticated and functional case for any 10″ tablet with plenty of storage space to boot.
