    Looking for one the clips into a holder and not slides in with it covering the iPad bezel. Want it to clip in at all 4 corners and have a thin leather back and folding cover that protects the screen and turns off the device.

    Bought the Targus Slim case but it did not work. Like to have one like it that works!

    Is it too early to expect a decent case?

    The Incipio SmartFeather for the new iPad
    + the Apple Smart cover looks like a nice combo too.

    I was surprised now nice the newer Dark Grey smartcover feels on the outside and inside.

    I also ordered this case. Should mention that it's not leather, rather,it's "vegan" leather (aka faux leather).

    What about the Targus Slim case does not work for you? I bought one with the new iPad at Best Buy and it seems to meet all your criteria. It does turn the screen on and off no problem.

    I'm assuming we are talking about the same case going by your description. It's a Targus, it's pretty slim, has a hole in the back to see the apple logo (not exactly loving that part) and has a stylus pen loop on the front cover.

    I have that case and it does NOT turn the display on and off on the iPad 3 as advertised. Not just for me but if you look at Amazon for this case it now has a low rating because it is failing most everyone.

    Amazon has already refunded my money and Targus says they will send me a new case that works in 6-8 weeks at no charge.

    Yes I knew it was not REAL leather, but I thought it was Corinthian Leather;)

    Oops. Mine is not the Slim Case. It's the Vuscape. It does look a bit thicker than the slim but not too much. It does work perfectly though. If there is a Best Buy near you they have tons of them out and it slips out of the package somyou can try it easily. http://www.bestbuy.com/site/Targus+...2&skuId=4880028&st=targus ipad case&cp=1&lp=2

    I looked and it look OK but not liking those large "fingers" that wrap around to hold the iPad in the case. Thanks though!

    I believe it was the Chrysler Cordoba that had the fine Corinthian leather if I'm not mistaken.
