    I was looking for a folio type case that looked and felt professional. All the cases I've seen at Apple, Target, AT&T, etc...all were nothing special to be found. So I did some searching on this forum and the net, and found that people liked the Yoobao Magic and Slim. I went with the slim, well for I'm thinking its slimmer and not a fan of those 3 groove-type cases. Well, it was definitely worth the $40 I spent for it! Top quality stitching and love that its real leather. Ordered on Mon and got it today, Wed.

    So, anyone looking for a folio, look no further!

    Only downside (for me) is that I use my iPad in landscape 99% of the time and like the speaker on the top right. With the case, the speaker is on the bottom left when in "typing position". Not a deal breaker at all.

    Thought I'd share some pics with everyone :D

    wow that is a nice looking case. Thanks for posting this, I'll be getting my fiancee one of these along with her iPad for X-mas instead of the Apple case I was planning on getting her. She will love this.

    Just wondering if the slim can fold flush all the way back.

    Thanks.

    I can fold it all the way back to still use comfortably when on the couch or in the bed

    I like that i can lay the flap down in my lap and then just angle the iPad anyway i like..the leather feels great in the hand than grabbing the slippery aluminum back

    Hope this helps

    Not much at all

    If anything the added thickness and weight makes the case more luxorious

    Makes the apple case look like a $2 amazon case IMO

    This is easily the best case I’ve used for my iPad. Just bulky enough to hold but still feels slim in the hand.

    Glad you like it

    Def agree with you, I won't need another case

    Hoping the 2nd gen stays the same with just internal upgrades, just so I can keep this case :D

    Apart from Ebay, does anyone know a UK Retailer of these cases?

    I guess this doesn't answer my question.

    Can you fold the cover flat behind the iPad like the Apple case or does it form a little wedge?

    it folds all the way back, but doesn’t sit completely flat because of the leather tab on the back of the case. I wouldn’t call it a wedge though. it’s flat enough.

    I can't seem to figure out how to PM you, map1978!

    Can you please send me the ebay link that you used to order that case? (or the vendor).

    Thanks!!


    Also, are you still as happy with the case as you were in December??

    Is it not possible to insert the iPad the other way to avoid this?

    The port openings would not align that way.

    I have one of these and it's my favorite iPad case so far (I've gone through the Apple case, a Dodo case and a Portenzo case). My one minor complaint is that the leather tab gets softer over time and it becomes more and more difficult to get it into the slot when using the case as a stand.* But it's a problem I can deal with and it certainly doesn't cause me to reconsider the purchase.
