I've been using a Smart Cover for around three months now on an iPad 3 in conjunction with a devicewear union shell and have found the combo growingly inadequate for my needs. I need a case that a has a few good viewing angles for use as a second screen with my laptop. Quite honestly, the iPad smartcover only has one useful angle (typing) which doesn't get me that far in this case. Does anyone have a recommendation for folio under $30 that isn't too thick but will hold up to abuse?

I can't recommend this case enough

My main reason for not wanting a Folio was that bulky "frame" that surrounded the screen due to most Folios being slide-in types. This one is a snap-in style, and i love it

If you don't want to spend a lot of money, I would recommend the smarterstand over at smarterflo.com.

I got this when it was on kickstarter and I use it with my Smart Cover and devicewear union. It gives me about 2-3 more viewing angles and it is strong and sturdy. That's the cheapest solution, if not, I second the guy above me!
