I have been on the look out for cases for my iPad for a few days - and it has really disrupted my studies! My requirements for my kind of case: There are a lot of cases out there that have kick stands, flaps, creases, buttons, latches, velcro, magnets, every sort of mechanism out there to have the iPad stand for movie viewing I am assuming. I was looking for a professional looking iPad case, leather, without these crazy do-hickeys simply because I think they are unsightly. If my iPad were to be sitting at my desk for me to watch movies from etc, it would not be in a leather folio. A leather folio is a good case to look professional, and serious I think. The right kind of leather folio would be low profile and clean looking, with high quality soft leather. It would offer protection around the bezel and hold the iPad securely instead of with just four elastic straps that could break who knows when. It should cover the bezel to decrease the amount of fingerprints etc. I tried out the marware, thinking that this was the case for me...nice leather, professional looking, holds the iPad firmly and doesn't have those crazy stand devices. Alas, not for me. The suede detracts from the beauty of the ipad. That is the bottom line. The marware is also very thick, and heavy. It adds substantial weight to the iPad which could be a good or bad thing. Anyway I took to ebay. The wasteland of cases. But there was something that caught my eye. So to end the post..I wanted to show you some cases I found from a seller. It is marketed as authentic buffalo skin in three different colors - black, dark brown and light brown - all of which are simply gorgeous. I just ordered them, so I will put in a review once i receive them. I ordered a dark brown and a black because I could not make up my mind. This case as a stand thing, but I am contacting the seller right now to see if it could be removed. If it can..this will be my perfect case.
