I used to see a lot of college students bring their laptops to class to take notes (and to keep updated on their friends’ Facebook pages), but I’m sure this year more students will be bringing their iPad2 or other tablet devices to class.
This case from Targus not only provides a cushy place to store and tote around your iPad2, it also has room for all your other school or work essentials. The Targus Spruce EcoSmart Mini Messenger for the iPad (ARV $39.99) is not only eco-friendly—it is made from recycled plastic bottles and is PVC-free—it is also backed with a limited lifetime warranty.
The shoulder strap is a nice addition, but there is also a handle at the top for easy carrying, too. Check out all the felty padding inside:
As you can see, there is a zippered section at the front where you can put pens, your library card, student ID, some change, etc. There is room inside the main compartment for a notebook, as well as your iPad charger.
And, don’t forget to include your Targus Universal Stylus for Tablets (ARV $14.99) inside the front section—it will fit neatly inside one of those pen holders. I had been wanting a stylus for a long time—these are great for really small links you are supposed to touch on the iPad2. I also use this stylus for various painting/drawing apps and for writing handwritten notes. I am really pleased with it! The front tip is soft and squishy, so you don’t need to worry about marking up your tablet or scratching anything. This stylus can also be used on Smartphones and the iPod Touch. This stylus makes for a perfect pointing tool when you don’t want your own or someone else’s fingerprints on your devices.
The Targus line of products includes a huge variety of cases for all kinds of tablets, laptops and so much more. There are rolling cases, too—great for carting all the things you need for a presentation. Targus also has you covered in the accessory front—from cords to power supplies for all your gadgets.
I received the iPad2 case and Stylus from Targus in exchange for my honest review. I was not compensated in any other way.
