Last year, when the iPad 2 was released, I pre-ordered 3 covers...Yoobao's, one from iNCase and one from incipio. Of the three, all of them had fit and finish and issues. Three months later I settled on an Incase model I picked up at Best Buy and it fit perfect. It was the second generation of their cover for the iPad 2. I'm not making that mistake again this year. Yes, I'm as OCD as the rest of you and really fret over not having a cover for my iPad 3rd Gen. I work in construction sites all day long and mine gets laid on top of sawdust and metal shaving-covered stacks of plywood and construction materials several times per day. Maybe I'll try and cram it into one of my older Yoobao cases (since they were already beat up anyways) until I can get a good case that fits. But I played the pre-order and disappointment game last year and really don't think I am willing to trust anything that's hot off the assembly line this year. They just have too many fit issues with a new design until AFTER they get a real model to play with. Good luck to the rest of you...I hope to read some positive reviews on cases that are perfect on the first iteration this year.
