    Suggestions for a Cool Case for my Surface Book--with the screen detached

    Starting up my new firm, I purchased a very nice Surface Book with a 13.5 inch detachable screen that I can use in tablet mode. It's really pretty cool.

    However, I can't seem to find a nice case to carry around the tablet portion. I would be bringing this to client meetings to take notes, etc. And I'm freaking clumsy. I'm constantly dropping my phone. I don't want to be carrying the tablet around without protection.

    Sometimes, like yesterday, I had to be working around a construction site in mud, dirt, and on unfinished concrete floors.

    So, ideally, it would have a cover I could flip open to use the tablet without removing it from the case. And a place to put the stylus, a few business cards, and maybe a real pen.

    I've looked on Amazon and in a couple of office supply stores in real life, but I'm not finding anything I like. Most of the cases seem to be designed for the ipad or Surface Pro--not the Surface Book.

    Anybody have any suggestions?

    I'm pretty cheap when it comes to this kind of thing, but for something nice, I could see myself spending up to $200.

    For all that you are going to be carrying, cards, pens, stylus, etc. have you entertained the thought of just getting a nice,slim, leather briefcase, or sleeve?

    Yes, but I want something that I can keep the tablet in while I'm using it. Kind of like this, but for a computer tablet:

    My wife has something she uses for her Asus pad. I just can't find one large enough for the 13.5 inch tablet.
