I just ordered an iPad mini and I am in the market for a case. I have an iPad 3 that has the otterbox defender and I hate it because its 3 times the weight of my iPad. Now for my mini I am looking for something similar to the speck candyshell that they used to make for the old iPads and still make for iPhones. I am planning on taking the iPad to class with me so I need something to protect it but I really don't want to deal with the weight of the otterbox. Can anyone suggest a good case for my iPad mini? Thanks in advance!

SwitchEasy has pretty darn good case. It's light, thin and protects the back very well. It also works with the Smart Cover if you'd like to use one with it. I would suggest going with one of the colors other than black or clear as those two show scratches more than the matte versions.

I'm not sure about that one. I wish there was something similar to the candyshell. I loved that case.

How about this?

('ve never used the Candyshell, but based on what i could see on their website this looks similar).

That doesn't look too bad. I just found this one too.

Candy Shell was one of my favorite cases for my first generation iPad. I hope they come out with one for the Mini too.

I went to best buy today and it looked like the griffin survivor and the otterbox were the best sellers. I'm still unsure though. The otterbox on my iPad 3 is so heavy and bulky but yet it is super protective

I just also ordered a mini today,and I plan on picking up an otter box for it. Elsewhere on the forum it seems to be that reports are saying it doesn't bulk up the mini too terribly,and seems to be one of the favorites. So I'm hoping that this is the case.

I'm kind of thinking about going that route. I might take the screen protector off and use my own though.

can someone post what the Otterbox Defender does to the weight of the iPad Mini? does it end up being nearly as heavy as an iPad 3/4 or is it still very very lightweight.

the iPad Mini in its current form is essentially feather-light to me while reading with one hand. will the Otterbox then prevent one-handed operation for long periods of time?

Has anyone had any experience with the Incipio NGP?

I have NGP and it's really really good. It is both slim and gives good protection, you also get a good screen protector that I use. I can really recommend this case!

I just received my candyshell. So far I really like it. I have always used screen protectors but am considering going naked.
