    Speaking of that, where did you get the blue one?

    I'm probably going to order a new Note 8 in the next couple days (though you guys are scaring with the stylus business). So naturally I'm also in the market for a case. I read every post in this thread, and there are a few cases I have my eye on.

    But I have a question. Does anyone know if a case similar to this one is made for the Asus Vivotab Note 8? I haven't seen one myself, but maybe someone here has.

    Here is the eThink keyboard/case/ clam shell stand
    eThink1.jpg

    It holds the computer upright via back clip.
    eThink3.jpg

    I wish it opened a bit more, but I think
    they put the stop in, so the tablet will
    not fall over.
    eThink5.jpg

    It will fold up clamshell style.
    which is nice & convenient.
    But since it is designed for a 7.5" device,
    the ends of the Asus stick out about 1/2"
    on each end.

    It will hold the tablet in portrait, if
    you are careful. It will tip over
    easily if you bump it.

    Also, the keyboard has only 5 levels & is
    designed for Apple. The KeyTweak remapper
    has brought basic use, but the function keys
    only seem to remap only on the 2nd, 3rd top row
    keys.
    Maybe there is a way to remap the rest of the
    function keys?

    The case is really black but did look blue in that picture. Blame my Nokia 928 camera.

    @Fret44. I have been looking for a TPU or Gel case as well, and so far even the Asian online malls have nada.

    I purchased a 7"-8" PointMobl case from Radio Shack.

    Mobl2.jpg
    The keyboard has 6 levels of keys, but is a Mac/Android layout.

    Mobl4.jpg
    I have used KeyTweak to remap what keys I could on the top row
    to Fn 1-12. I am having trouble getting the Esc & Del keys to map
    in the top left/right corners. I have remapped them down by the
    space bar as there are 2 Cmd keys & 2 Alt keys.

    Mobl1.jpg
    The case is clean and slim.

    Mobl3.jpg
    I like the elastic holder better
    than the clips on the MOKO case. The keyboard has more keys,too.

    So I finally registered, because I would like to know your opinion on which of these two cases is better:

    Ultra Slim Tri Fold Leather Case Cover for ASUS VivoTab Note 8" M80TA Tablet | eBay

    or

    High Quality Folio Stand Leather Case Cover for ASUS VivoTab Note 8" M80TA | eBay

    I read the whole thread, but unfortunately I can't order SUPcase or buy any case in my country (there is only ONE case available in Czech republic!) and also I can't order anything from Amazon. I personaly think, that the second one is a bit better and has more features. So which one would you recommend please?

    I have the first one (or something from the same factory). It's a bit thick for my liking but works well. Build quality is average so just get the cheapest one you can find.

    The second one looks to have a lot of magnets so that might interfere with the pen.

    I got one like the second and yes, it does have magnets which will interfere with the pen. But I really like how it doesn't cover the bezel but does protect the back. As I don't draw on my device and can safely ignore the edge of the device while writing, I don't really mind the magnets.
