Old School Meets New:
5 Padfolios for Note Taking

For nearly two years, I have been hauling around an iPad sleeve and a padfolio for different meetings and work projects. It's tedious, but I have always been shocked by how few tablet cases are designed to accommodate a tablet and a small notebook. I can't be the only one that still likes to take note on old fashioned pen and paper?!

Here are five tablet folios with sleeves for digital and paper notes:

1. Solo Leather Padfolio with Zipper ($46.79)
This padfolio gets high marks for having an extra divider inside the folio to prevent the notebook from touching the tablet screen. The high quality leather is also a nice find for the price. 

2. Vera Bradley Tablet Folio ($58.00) 
I like this folio because it has a simple opening on the non-tablet sleeve that can be used for your own favorite notebook. Plus, it's a wide enough opening that you can slide other papers inside it too.  

3. Google Nexus 7 Tablet with Notepad Case ($89)
The wallet look isn't really my style, but the organizational functionality of this case really can't be beat. It's also one of the few folios out there that caters to the Nexus 7 owner. 

4. Diane Von Furstenberg Print Case ($72.49)
For being a fancy "designer" case, this one might be my favorite of them all because of the "flex sleeves" on the left side of the folio. The Von Furstenberg case has enough pockets to accommodate a wide range of needs, but it's still a nice flat design.  

5. Russel and Hazel's Tablet Folio ($120)
This is definitely the priciest of the bunch, but it's also astoundingly high quality. The leather is supple and soft and is even utilized for the interior sleeves.
