That seems great. If you have the time, would you please post a few more photos? Maybe some close-ups when it's closed and from the side?

Much appreciated - thanks.

There is no "best" case, but several really good ones. The "best" case will depend on the individual. So far, my favorite cases (after trying about 15 different cases) are the Devicewear Ridge (http://www.amazon.com/Slim-iPad-Mini-case-Devicewear/dp/B00A10D00Q/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1357344165&sr=8-1) and the Moshi Versacover (http://www.moshimonde.com/product/versacover-for-ipad-mini.aspx).

"Best" is subjective. What kind of case are you interested in? If you want a book/folio type case, check out the Incase Folio. Just got mine recently and I'm enjoying it so far. It replaced my smart cover which is going back to the store.

Retails for $39.99 (same as Smart Cover): http://goincase.com/products/detail/folio-cl60300

MacMall currently has it for $25.99:

Here ya go.. the little plastic clip on the elastic keeps it from falling over when used to watch shows, etc..

Thanks! Looks like a really elegant design, especially the fact that it doesn't cover up the nice design but still protects front and back.

Does it add a lot of weight?

What's the best ipad mini folio case ?

I don't know what's the best one,but my favorite one is this ROCK ultra thin case,folio case is very convenient and good looking,and this ultra thin case adds no bulk on the iPad mini at all.

No not really it's still pretty light. I think they said it weighs less then 8 oz. They also put the ipad mini too sleep when closed as well. (although I had to take the ipad mini off and on a couple times to get the magnets situated right with the sticky backing.

Also has hole for the camera.

Unfortunately it does not.

Do the buttons align right like the home bottom does it look nicely fitted if they do then I'll prob get this one :)

Yes, everything is aligned perfectly and all buttons and access points are easily accessible.
