This week I have been on the hunt for a case for an iPad, I already have ‘a solution’ on my personal iPad which works perfectly – but it is too costly for a work funded iPad. Let me explain;
On my iPad I have an Apple smart cover - the one that folds back into a triangle to support the machine for typing etc. it has a magnetic bar that holds it onto the iPad and clever hinges that work brilliantly. It is however £60 (it’s a leather one), it still needs a case for the rear of the machine (brilliantly provided by an Incipio smart feather case). Total cost around £85, but it works and I am very happy with it – especially the Apple bit!
So I have been looking for a cheaper alternative for my second iPad – shouldn’t be difficult. – right?
Well actually it is very difficult, there are lots of cheap imitations of the Apple product, but they just don’t work as well – they are not all bad (although some are), just not as good!
I have ended up with a ‘Skinny’ from STM, it is £35 and is not exactly what I was after but appears to work how I want it to. What it has highlighted to me though is that there is a lot of rubbish out there from manufacturers for apple products and although Apple products are expensive they all have something in common – they just work!
