Anyone using a case with their SP or have one to recommend? Preferably something that allows you to still use it while its in the case. There are several folio cases on amazon (and ebay) but are the typical low quality rubbish.

I have the $39.99 case from here: Surface tablet accessories overview
VERY nicely padded, fits the Pro with or without the pen in the power port and easy to insert and remove.
Zipper pocket in the back is nice. :D
I bought a Red one for my wife and Black one for me.

Amazon.com: rooCASE Super Bubble Neoprene Sleeve Case Cover for Apple MacBook Air 11.6-inch Laptop MC505LL/A MC506LL/A MC968LL/A MC969LL/A (Black / Orange): Computers & Accessories
Here's the one I ordered and I'll let you all know what I think when it arrives later this week. I like the side pocket I'll use for the charger and wedge mouse.

I have found a nice case for the RT and a sleeve for the Pro. I am hoping that they make a case for the Pro as well. They make very high end cases.
See the link below...

There are multiple color options (all of which are high quality leather).

I bought the extended warranty along with the MS Office 365 bundle which came with the Office 365 213 with 5 licenses, a screen protector and a case. The case looked decent enough. It's the same case that is posted above by another member. The above bundle came for $200.

I ordered a Waterfield Ultimate Sleevecase for my Surface Pro (Tablet Size 44-29), and it's been excellent so far. Small, waterproof, with a good amount of protective padding and a shoulder strap (I got the larger of the two strap options). Build quality is top notch, and it fits the Pro snugly with either the touch or type cover attached. Not a lot of extra room in the outside pocket for accessories, but there is a spot you can slide the pen through so that it's snug and doesn't go anywhere, which is nice (my original idea of having it attached to the Surface inside the main pocket did not work). The external pocket can probably hold a few cables and adapters, but you're not going to fit the AC adapter in it easily. I'll see if I can get some pictures of it, but the general look of the case can be seen on their website here:

What I'm looking for is a folding case with a "stiff" hinge which would allow one to adjust and set the angle between the keyboard and screen of the Surface. This would give the Surface with Type Keyboard attached the full functionality of a laptop and would allow one to easily use the Surface on the lap. Has anyone seen anything like this?

Here's a case that adds some functionality as well! Check this project out on kickstarter for introductory pricing.
Of course, I would love to hear any design comments you may have. Nobody's insights are more valuable than ones from those of us who own Surface Pros!

I got the $200 bundle and it included the Nixon sleeve (the $49.99 one in the middle). It is a bit tight with the type cover, but I do like the hand strap on the outside. Putting the charger in the outside pocket is a bit of a challenge, but it will fit. Overall, I like the case but it's probably too snug for most peoples' tastes.

What bundle is this? I didn't know that Microsoft was doing accessory bundles. That was the case I was looking into myself for when I purchase the Pro, so I'm glad to hear it fits everything well. I think I may be looking for something with a little more give though in case I want to bring my mouse (the arc touch mouse, so it doesn't take up much space) or an external hard drive (like the passport).
