I'm looking for a case that will protect both the front and back of the mini but be very thin and minimalistic. I really like the apple case that was available for the iPad-1 as shown.

Any recommendations for this type of case. The extremac microfolio seems like one that's close to this type of thin design.

Any suggestions?

I'm holding out for a Smart Case - I know it took Apple a while to bring it out with the full fat iPad.

Let's hope it's a lot better, I returned two for bad fit...

I know it's not great on the iPad 2, thought it was fine on the 3/4

Griffin makes the EXACT same case, and they sell it at Best Buy:

I bought it and returned it, I just didn't "love" it for the price. If it had the magnet open\close it would be fantastic.

Looks like that is sure close to the apple case, but I noticed on thing in the picture - no cutouts for the camera

I got this for my mini as well. Its leather or "Pleather", it needs some time to break in. Fit is almost perfect. Although feels a bit cheap.

What I am after is a slim hard case for the back that will accept the smart cover or something that has a hard back with a soft "Folio" Cover.
