Circa Leather iPad Foldover Notebook
Beautiful if it worked....
I love most all of my Levenger items, but this one has been a disappointment. With the iPad installed the covers pop off the rings, so I removed the iPad with the same results. Putting in larger rings do not help, they still pop off and I have to reinstall the covers. I don't have a lot in this notebook so I was really disappointed with the performance of the item. There seems to be a design issue with this product.

Circa IPad Foldover Notebook
I must echo the fact that the design of the notebook is seriously flawed. I should have listened to the other reviews and go with something else. As mentioned, the left side is way too heavy with the IPad in it. I would return it, but believe its over the timeframe to do. I have the leather zipped, but sometimes I need something a little smaller, I'll get the junior and figure out what to do with this one later.

Not iPad ready
I have to echo my concerns about how the current Circa construction is not compatible with the weight of an iPad. I am very sorry that I cannot use it except flat on a desk, and the weight has pulled apart my Circa to the point of ruining it. I have read your comments about re-engineering this design, and I hope you do, because the concept is wonderful. The execution, however, is sub-par.

I was a little disappointed in that my iPad was too heavy for the left side of the notebook. It has separated several times because of the weight of the iPad and only works comfortably at a desk - not when I'm walking around in classrooms and trying to access both sides.

Although it would be better if you could prop the notebook, the combination works. You don't have to carry 2 separate items.

And hope my Sister will too! New job, and new Ipad - this should help out! Love the Levenger quality!

Circa and iPad
What a combination! I love both. (Well most of us do any way.) Putting them together is terriffic. I've been a circa customer for years and love the flexibility of the product. This is the first introduction of circa for my wife (for whom this was a gift). Levenger quality never disappoints.That said, depending on how you use your circa, you may want to consider a larger rign size.

Not Sturdy Enough for Business Use
I normally love Levenger products and am a longtime user of the Circa system. However, this particular congiguration fails because
(1) it wasn't sturdy enough and couldn't stand being pulled in and out of a purse. I never had a problem with circa rings popping off a notebook before.
(2) Because of the iPad or velcro placement on the left, I couldn't really take good notes on the back sides of the paper.
The concept of pairing an iPad with a physical notebook is still very attractive to me, so I hope the Levenger designers can find one that works.
I should note that if the iPad will sit on a desk and not be moved or put regularly in a briefcase, then this arrangement might work well enough, but there wouldn't be a real reason to get such an expensive item if you weren't using it to protect an ipad during transport.
Sadly, I can't recommend this.
