    Now that is actually a very smart case...and felt is very fashionable right now. Simple, clean, protective and holds everything I might carry whether putting it in my messenger bag or heading to a meeting with just the SP3. Thanks!

    Something to consider. I just kinda figured this out. Pretty much any case designed for a MacBook Air will work with the SP3. My electric blue Snugg folio case is for the MacBook Air (although I bought it at my local Microsoft Store). If that helps.
    You know, I hadn't thought of that. Thanks. That opens up the search field TONS, I'm sure.

    I've discovered that a standard business writing pad/"padfolio" seems to work well for me for now, and stores my pen nicely.

    I think these 2 sleeves look like really good options. I'm going to pick one up. I actually think they are identical.

    I know right:). Can't help it though. I use these for my apple stuff and love them. Plus no one wants to steal a book.

    I just use it for carrying case and I prop the stand on it. I have a lot of clients that are attorneys and it's usually a conversation piece.

    I would imagine it would stabilize it a bit on your lap as well.

    That is kinda cool looking. I like the old weathered book look to it.

    I just bought this case. It is a little snug when I have the type cover attached, but I'm ok with that. I wanted something very small.

    I purchased this case on Amazon:
    Amazon.com: Surface Pro 3 Folio Cover Case with Stand for Microsoft Surface PRO 3 (3rd Generation) Windows 8.1 Tablet (12 Inch), , Built-in Stand with Multi Viewing Angles, Exclusive Design for Surface Pro 3, Great for Travel. Premium Leather Availab

    The case itself looks pretty presentable. Of course, the folio style of it renders the kickstand useless. But the biggest concern about it is the fact that the vents on the top of the device are pretty significantly blocked. Here is a picture of what it looks like:

    dsc_0361.jpg

    For what it's worth, I left a mediocre review on Amazon and the company that sold me the case responded with this email:

    Good afternoon Lukasz,

    I realized you ordered recently the new surface pro 3 case from us. and you mentioned on the product review a number of valid concerns about the product. Please be advised that we are expecting our new shipment 2-3 weeks that will solve all your concern. We will reship you a new case for free and would appreciate if you can edit the review

    Thanks You!

    sincerely

    Nick

    So maybe they'll release an updated version of the case that'll accommodate the vents better? I was gonna return it, but maybe I'll wait and see what happens. Here are two more pictures:

    It also looks as though it does not support the Touch Cover magnetic feature.
    The case seems to keep the Touch Cover from attaching to the bottom bezel.

    It apparently does; I'm ordering my TypeCover from Amazon (since I have a lot of Amazon credits) so I can't demonstrate it yet, but if you go to the link I posted, it shows a picture of it.

    EDIT: Unless you mean the feature where you can prop the keyboard up at an angle; then yeah, it definitely won't work.

    Correct. The feature where you can prop the keyboard up at an angle most likely won't work.

    That's good customer service. Poetic did the same thing when they sold the Atmosphere case for the Lumia 928. The original had plastic between the lens and the flash, which caused lens flare due to light transmission through the plastic. Poetic sent replacement cases to those of us who purchased the original version.

    Yeah, it's pretty awesome when a company goes out of their way like that. I'll definitely post some pics on this thread when the new one eventually comes in.

    The keyboard sticking to the screen the way it does, IMO, is nothing more than a gimmick, and is actually NOT good for your wrists. I use mine flat unless I'm in a place where I need that extra inch (almost) of space.

    More info for the curious:

    I decided to take the plunge on the WaterField Designs CitySlicker MacBook Case as well (made in San Francisco, CA USA!) and wow. A bit pricey but I am very impressed and very happy with my new Surface Pro 3 sleeve. I got the suspension strap and the handle (extra) to have options in the Grizzly Leather, beautiful (http://www.sfbags.com/collections/ma...r-macbook-case). This is the most I have ever spent on a laptop bag, pack or briefcase but boy, what a difference.

    Thanks Saberwalk for posting here.

    Up until today, I wasn't planning on getting a sleeve, but heading to meetings I figure it will be nice to have something slim and neat so I can at least have my miniHD display adapter and USB pointer with me whenever I carry the SP3 away from my desk or bag.
