Anyone have this? Pretty standard folio, but I like that it doesn't cover the bezel and that it supports the sleep/wake function. Also has a stylus holder which is cool, and is Prime eligible! Currently $25.79, but can be had for $11.45 cheaper, so $14.34 with Prime!

Any other recommendations for a stand-like case that doesn't cover the bezel and supports the sleep/wake function are also welcome! :)

How do we know any of these cases have the polarity right?


I don't think anyone found out until the cases shipped......

Well it is shipping, one review states:
This is a great case for the new ipad (ipad 3) Fits like a glove. Took a chance as there were no reviews but I wanted to have a case in hand when my new ipad was delivered. Very nice fit and finish. Love that is supports the sleep and wake function. Built in stand is very convenient. This is a perfect case and I am very happy my decision.
Unfortunately, none of the other reviews make notice of it :confused:

Yup, very true. I'm just tired of carrying around my iPad case-less. I'm too accident prone :p

Hopefully some others chime in and can attest to the quality/accurateness of its product description.

I'd still buy it at 25...I really don't give a damn about the on off function....some people seem to bi in such a tizzy about it....

That's true. I'm close to pulling the trigger, just seeing if anyone had any input. My case for back when I had my iPad 2 never had the on/off function. So this time around I'd like to see what the hoo-hah is all about lol

Hey everyone!

So I was googling this case to see if I could find any reviews, and I ended up at this site, regarding a deal in which you can buy the case for $9.99 + $4.50 shipping: http://dealspl.us/Computers-Software_deals/p_acase-tm-concept-hard-shell-case-folio-for-ipad-2-ipad

So I clicked on it and noticed it uses Amazon for secure checkout. But unfortunately, I could not apply my Prime membership.

So I opened a new tab, went to Amazon, and noticed it too had the promo code 8NN56I4A (under Special Offers and Product Promotions), but only when bought with 1 or more qualifying items.

So I added the case to my cart, went to checkout, and noticed the promotion had already been applied! Most likely due to me adding it to my cart from the other site.

Anywho, somehow it ended up being $25.79 - $11.45 Promo, which equals a grand total of $14.34 with 2-day shipping (10 cents cheaper than if you were to simply go through the dealspl.us site, plus with faster shipping)

Of course, then I applied $11.86 is cash back points from my credit card and ended up paying a whopping $2.48 for the case :D

Hopefully this works for my fellow MacRumor-ers, cheers!

EDIT- I tried adding it to my cart again in a new browser. Full price. I applied the 8NN56I4A promo code, but it results in the error "The promotional code you entered cannot be applied to your purchase." So I'd guess it definitely has something to do with going through the dealspl.us site first. Not too sure
