I bought this case from: http://www.amazon.com/Poetic-Slimline-Display-Manufacturer-Warranty/dp/B00FNX0GOE/ for 4.95 USD + Shipping I acquired my iPad mini with Retina earlier today by ordering online and picking up from my local Apple Store. Upon coming home, I found my pre-ordered case from Poetic has arrived as well. Perfect timing! iPad Mini with Retina feels nearly identical to the previous Mini. You have both a top mic and rear mic, which is something to look for when choosing cases for the iPad mini w/ Retina in specific. Im loving the sharp bezel and the aluminum back; quality as usual from Apple. This tablet is one attractive device. And now to protect this thing of beauty. The cover on this Slimline case has a grainy texture and is made from synthetic leather-like material. No weird smells on mine. The auto wake cover works like a charm, very responsive and quick. The cover apes the Apple Smart Covers tri-fold design, and the magnet is strong enough for the cover to stick into a tight triangular stand. It works just fine on its typing angle as well as landscape mode. The cover stand holds steady and does not collapse easily. Those who had iPad Mini Slimline case for their 1st Gen iPad Mini, such as myself, should consider this Slimline case again for the Retina version. This case is very slim, so those who prefer more protective feel, this Slimline case might not be your choice. Overall, I am happy with my 9 USD purchase from Amazon.
