Hey all :)
I wanted to buy a case for my iPad,i looked at the Apple's case and it seems it takes 3-4 weeks to ship,so i have to consider another one.
My budget is up to 50 and i want something that is currently "Available",because i have looked at Eco-vue and Eco-Flip and they aren't available for now(i checked Amazon)
Thanks

I've got the official apple one, which I grabbed from an apple store. I was lucky to get the last one.

Pc world have the griffin ones in store.

I have a Belkin leather one which I bought from PCWorld at the same time as my iPad, leather folder type with an elastic closer, picture frame type. Only gripe is I would have preferred a one where you can stand the iPad on it's side to watch movies. Well made though cost 50

I've reviewed 2 cases http://www.ipad-review.co.uk/2010/05/ipad-folio-flip-case-review/ and http://www.ipad-review.co.uk/2010/05/ecell-ipad-case-available-in-uk-now/ on my iPad website, theres also some links to some UK case suppliers there also.

I've just got the Snugg case from Amazon. Their ads are all over this site if you are not blocking them. I feel that 30 is a lot of money for a little case, but it's priced the same as the Apple case, and I have no issues with dust collecting, sharp edges, or staying closed. It's made of faux leather, fits well, and has two small magnets to keep the cover shut.

Highly recommended, although all these cases appear to be ridiculously priced.

Worth taking a look at Waterfield Designs (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P50ccw034fg) or the Proporta (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yVHknUzFE7k) case.

Had the Apple case, well 2 actually but just sold one on ebay as i could just not keep it clean, got very dusty easily and took too long to get the ipad in and out, i do like to use it naked time to time( the ipad not me!!!!)

I have gone with the Griffin Elan Passport case, very good case and looks good to take into the office.
First seen in pc world for 34.99 but Carphone warehouse are selling these for 19.99 so picked one up from the store in my town.

Thats a cracking saving and cant understand how CPW are selling them 15 quid cheaper than everywhere else.

Great case highly reccommend
