    Hey all. I recall seeing, for the original iPad mini, several sources for super-cheap plastic back shells. Like just a couple bucks or less per shell.

    I used to get them from Tmart, as they had them with the smart cover cutout and without.

    But I can't find anyplace that sells them cheap for the retina mini. Needs the hole for the microphone, and needs to fit the larger device thickness. I've been scouring the case roundup threads, and haven't found anything cheap. See my sig for why price is a factor.

    I'm actually looking for a case for the back of the retina mini also. Something thin and light and comparable with the Smart Cover. I am hoping someone on these boards has some good suggestions.

    There's a thread for a $1.99 cover that it will take you 15 seconds to make a hole in for the mic

    If you're looking for something to resell, consider searching at DealeXtreme for a suitable item. Dx.com.

    Has anyone gotten the DealXtreme back shell for mini retina yet? Their product photos look generic, and don't have the hole for the second microphone. Wondering if the product actually has it. Don't wanna wait 1-2 weeks to find out, then another 1-2 weeks for a bulk order to arrive. Their chat rep was no help at all.

    PS, don't wanna drill the holes myself. Already got enough work on my plate.
