    Toshiba Portfolio Case w/mods



    I reckon all you TPC owners have some quibbles with this case, as have I.
    I just got it yesterday and used it for the first time thi morning to carry my Thrive to work and show some colleagues.
    Though it seems to be assembled extremely well from decent quality materials, I found it lacking in a few areas.....

    The front cover wanted to move around a little while carrying it.
    Maybe not a problem in the short term, but I felt it could cause some weakness in the spine down the road.

    Simple fix was to strategically place some new style hooked velcro on the inner sleeve:



    This made the whole case feel more solid in my hand while walking.


    The next gripe I had was no storage for SD cards!! I figure I will want to carry a couple with me sometimes.
    That took a little creativity on my part, but nothing too difficult.
    I used a wide piece of the old style hooked velcro (without any adhesive backing) which I shaved the hooks off except around the edges, leaving ample grip without requiring too much force to remove it.




    This may be kinda ghetto to some of you, but I think it works great and the CD card holder can be placed anywhere you want: on the inside of the front cover (portrait mode):




    Or behind the main cover (landscape), out of view and still accessible.

    I bought a similar case on amazon. I remember seeing two like this, an expensive one and a cheaper one. I went for the cheaper product on amazon and it turned out to be a portfolio too even though the picture previews didn't show it. Mine fits good, and there's no problem. But the sd card mod is cool.
