I'm getting a new iPad 4 soon but when I'm shopping for cases online I see most of them are "made for" iPads 2 and 3, so can the 4 fit in them? And what cases do you guys recommend that looks nice, has the magnet feature and costs under $35?

I saw this case by Incase that costs $10 on Amazon, but wonder if it's good. http://goincase.com/products/detail/canvas-maki-jacket-cl60133#img3

the 4 is the exact same dimensions as the 3. only diff externally is the lightning port that requires less space. I got the pad and quill graduate case for the ipad 2/3 and it fits my 4 just fine. if it fits the 3, it def fits the four. the only thing to note is that you'll have some extra space around the lightning port.

I got a case that looks like the Incase one you mentioned called the Rocketfish Leatherlike Case with built-in stand. Prior to that, I also owned an 11" sleeve with a zipper and dark gray smart cover. Returned all of them. Why might you ask?

I wanted a leather case that had a slim profile, with the ability to place it on a built-in stand. After using my iPad 4 for 2 weeks, I really desired a dual-view stand, so I am able to prop up the iPad in both landscape and portrait mode (skype works well in portrait). So I hopped on Amazon, and after reviewing tons and tons of cases for 2 hours, I ordered this:

Comes out to $23 through Amazon. To be eligible for free shipping, I threw in this stylus that appeared to have some good reviews. Only $5.95.

Of course, you don't have to get both, but there's a video review of this case, and I really look forward to trying it out when it is delivered on Monday next week.

Let me know what you think!

Wow it looks amazing, but I have already placed an order for the Incase because it is only $10. I'll see how that turns out and if I don't like it i'll simply ship it back. And you said you got the stylus to qualify for free shipping? I don't know coz I saw it says the item qualifies for free two day prime shipping for me so it should also qualify for the usual supersavers shipping :o

Yeah, I was kinda dumb and used the Amazon Prime Student 1 yr free membership 2 years ago, and didn't even use Amazon back then! :O So I had to go with the slowest free shipping (on orders $25+). lol

I am considering making a review, because it only has 1 video review. Let me know how your Incase works!
