    I've been looking for the "perfect" case but haven't found it. What I'm looking for:

    1. Leather or faux leather
    2. Folio style
    3. Able to stand horizontally
    4. No leather on the front of the iPad - The clasps like the Macally has or the little corner things would work as long as they don't cover anything (speaker, power, etc.)

    This CrazyOnDigital is nice but doesn't stand. HERE

    The Marware covers the front of the iPad with suede. HERE

    Same with Tuff-Luv. HERE

    The Ctcstore Leather Convertible Book looks good except that goofy strap and the way it stands (with part of the case protruding in front of the iPad) is weird. HERE

    Has anyone seen one similar to what I'm trying to find. :confused:

    I like the Youbao. My only concern is the magnets. I don't know the long term effects they have on the pad and I don't know what they'll do to GPS.

    The front is covered too, but that's not that big a deal. Otherwise, it is really nice.

    That is an interesting case! No black??

    It looks like the Noreve meets all the criteria but I can't find any good pictures of it. The pics on the site don't really show much. Again, I'm a little worried about the magnets........

    What makes you think it has magnets? The way I see it, it stays closed via the curved clip on the edge of the case. There's no surface area for magnets to work on the screen side of the case.

    Hmm. I wonder where I got that idea too.... :eek:

    EDIT: Ah it's a different model.

    There are 2 Yoobao cases. One is similar to the Apple case but in leather. That one has a leather "frame" around the screen and closes with magnets. The one in this pic is more what you are looking for, I think. No magnets and no leather on the front of the ipad. This one has not yet made it's way to ebay. Big drawback in my book is that it is fake leather. The Apple clone is real leather.
