Got a new iPad Mini Retina that I'm really liking but not sure which case to go with. I got an open box Zagg folio keyboard case for $35w/ my best buy rewards. I like the idea of the keyboard just not sure how much Ill use it. I do like that it looks like a mini laptop lol. What case do you like?

Well I have always liked the Incase Magazine Jacket, its pretty light.

Although I'm personally always tempted to just use a sleeve and use the iPad "naked" when i'm where I want to be...

I just use the Smart Cover and a Ghost Armor carbon fiber skin on the back.

I've always used cases, but once I went to the skin only it would be hard to go back.

Best case

The best case for the mini is the Poetic Slimline. Good price and great form factor. I have had mine since the rmini came out and it is still perfect.

I am a fan of the apple smart case. Great feel, fit and weight.

I have the Zagg Invisible Shield HD on front & back....then I also have the Apple Smart Case & Smart Cover...and I switch between the two, usually using the Smart Case when I take my iPad with me.

I have an otterbox and apple smart case on my 3rd gen and my mini has the life proof fre with Smart Cover. Expensive but it works great.

For anyone that uses a case that leaves the display exposed how do you transport it without worrying about breakage?

I have the Smart Cover for when it is in my backpack, which really only serves as my son's diaper bag at this point.

Otherwise, I carry it in my hand.

I would just be careful of where you carry it. A lot of bags now have padded areas for laptops, etc. That is usually a good place to keep it.
