    Beautiful case but the price is on the high side @ $220 plus shipping. 20 days to make ...

    does it use magnets to have smart cover functionality?

    From the looks of it, it is identical to the libretto case, except it uses the strap instead of the magnets. Thus, no sleep/wake functionality. And it's $60 more than the libretto. I'm glad I ordered the libretto.

    After a week of looking at all options, I ordered the libretto yesterday. I emailed them today to see what the difference is between the libretto and the agenda besides the strap and they replied that the agenda is leather inside as well as outside. I can do without that!:)

    oh wow, that case is just really elegant, just not too fond of those two corners not being covered.

    where was it shipped from anyway? i don't see any US locations on their site, and i thought they mentioned 35 days to get to your door??

    Ordered a black and red Agenda last night from Vaja. The colours that I want (though the cream and red is looking mighty appealing now...), a reduced pricing, and the immediate shipping sealed the deal :D

    I'll post pictures and impressions once I get it, but for now I'm absolutely psyched :D

    way too much money when you can get a similar leather case maybe not as pretty for $180 less same basic design but with corner protection unless you just like stays symbols?

    Well to be honest I have a Yoobao genuine leather folio which is quite nice (quality isn't all there, but it does the job just fine).

    But I've wanted a Vaja case since I brought my first iPod back in 2003, and after going through half a dozen cases for the iPad 2 I've just taken the plunge.

    Sure it's expensive, but it's something I will have for years. If you can justify the cost, why compromise?

    But you won't have the iPad for years and it sure won't fit the iPad 3 so yes wasted money. Its not like Luggage that you use for years and can throw any years clothes in it. But hey i understand the need for status symbols

    Bwahahaha, it's not like I carry my iPad about on my neck on a gold chain so people know I've got one. The Vaja case is quite discreet and actually, I WILL have it for years because I don't plan to sell this iPad next time around for an iPad 3 ;)
