I'm going with a case. It's way too thin. If a drop it, it'll probably crack. I like the Smart Cover but I need protection on the back of it as well. I'll order online if I can't find any front and back cases in store.

I'll use a smart cover when out of the house, but naked at home!

I thought the thinner and lighter something is the less of an impact to the floor which would mean less damage.

I think soon a lot more people will go caseless once these devices get to a level of thinness and lightness that a fall won't damage the device.

How is a smart cover going to help anyways when risking the outside world with your iPad?

Me. It's a cheap product. The smart cover is enough.

This.

Plus AppleCare+ will replace it for $49 if you choose that option. Don't think it is a really great idea for the 16 but 32 and definitely 64 need AppleCare+

TPU case only around the house. Will likely get a cheap case for when I'm out.

It's not. I only use for some screen protection and less screen smudging while carrying it.

Just a Smart Cover for me. Makes no sense to take away from the excellent form factor with some bulky case.

I use a Smart Cover. I'd really like to have a hard plastic case for the back. Incase makes one for iPad 3, which I have, and I really like it, so I'd like one for my mini too.

Smart cover here. I'll get a sleeve, as thin as I can find, for when I take it out of home. In which case it'll travel in my purse. So I need some kind of protection. But at home, just the cover, and be careful where I put it when I don't use it.

I hate cases.

I'm naked... Usually dress my iPad & phones to the 9s. I don't feel like spend any more & won't take out of house. I like the naked feel for a change. I did order a cheap-o screen protector though to make cleaning easier.

I'll be rocking mine without a case for now, I might pick up Smart cover eventually, but I don't really want to bulk this thing up.

I have a Bestskinsever full body skin on order, but for now have an Apple Smart Cover on it. Definitely want some protection for the back.

Naked for now, but I've placed an order for a smart case (poetic slim case on amazon). It won't ship for 3 weeks tho.

The only reason I have a neoprene zipping sleeve for my 3 is because of my cat. Crazy chick. Never an iPhone case. Or an extra one, anyway. It has a beautiful aluminum/glass case pre-installed. No Apple Care either. Coordination built in and appreciated. Crossing fingers when booze is involved.

Case too heavy

One of the most appealing features of the Mini is the weight. I bought a neoprene cover for the back. It does protect it but I noticed the increase in weight immediately. I'll use it naked and put it in a man purse for traveling. Haven't tried it in my pocket yet but I think it is too big for my pocket.
