What is the advantage, other than it is nice looking perhaps, of using this notebook rather than a standard ring binder?
The reasons I like the disk-binding systems:
1. compact, like a spiral-bound, yet
2. editable like a ring binder; and
3. I can make it virtually whatever size I want.
I can fit several disk-bound notebooks into the same bag that I could only fit one ring binder. I am actually in the process of planning my own weekly agenda, based on a compact-size binder-type, but it will fit in my purse without any problem; a binder-type planner will not fit in my purse, much less allow for the rest of my purse's contents!

If it has to be sold to you, then you don't need it.
Don has a point, but I will try (I am kind of stupid that way):
- [Reasons given by Padwanspider]
- The ability to use customized sheets in a notebook (try that with a spiral)
- Easily transfer sheets between notebooks, without the bulk of a three ring binder.

I like that the cover can be folded to the back and I can write on a flat surface. The quick insertion of new content or removal of old is really nice. I found with spiral books I would find something I wanted to add to my notebook and couldn't without glueing or stapling it in. I do not find the system good for journaling or really permanent pages though, as pages are easier to be damaged. I love it for planning, to do pages, idea pages, grocery lists, etc. It is perfect for brain dumping.
This to me seems the best advantage ... if you find yourself writing on your lap, the space required is far less than with a traditional (insert your number of) ring binder system. In addition, there is a varied number of customizations also supported by the ARC system. Why pay more for Levenger? Unless of course you like some of the other leather options. They are very attractive!
