I don't understand why the Apple case is so hard to find?!

    I got mine in Future shop as the Best Buy across the road was sold out. I like it better than the leather one I got off eBay. I like the way the iPad sits in it. I already carry a micro fibre cloth for the iPad screen so I might as well use it to keep the case clean as well. <g>.

    Just bought my apple case at Bestbuy. They had about 15 on the shelf. It's a nice case but I can see myself growing into a better case.

    I've read many reviews from self proclaimed Apple fans that didn't say the best things about the OEM Apple folio case. An acquaintance who actually works at an Apple store even suggested I look at other brands.

    Try a Best Buy store that doesn't carry the Apple hardware. I was in one the other day and , lo and behold, there were a dozen genuine Apple iPad cases gathering dust in the netbook department. Should have bought em all I guess.

    I love my Yoobao V3 case. Everything the Apple case should have been.

    I found mines at the apple store. Before buying it, i thought it would be flimsy but this case is built very well. Multifunctional stand n portrait or landscape mode. Plus i love the feel of it. Like some high quality suede or somethin. Yeah, it does get dusty easily but wipes clean with wet rag or somethin.. Im really liking it. I had bought a rubber skin bumper at first, but that only protects the back n sides of ipad. You get complete coverage with apple case. I like how the edges are because they act like deflectors if u drop the ipad. Instead of directly hitting the edges or sides with full force, the lil flaps deflect the energy, in theory..lol. Plus very lightweight case. Gives it a sleek/professional look to it.

    Hi all, I joined here today and this is my first post. I feel a bit lucky now after reading this thread. My son and I were on holiday in New York State a month ago and we walked into an Apple store in Buffalo almost exactly a month to the day and bought two ipads.
    There were about six of those covers on the shelf and we bought two of them. I didn't realize at the time they were in short supply.

    I forgot to mention that while the case looks nice, it's not too easy to keep clean. That furry-feel material attracts dirt.
    Also does anyone know what the strip along the inside edge (about 2" wide) is for? I was going to cut it off but don't want to if it performs a function (other than annoying me) that I'm now aware of.

    You tuck it in underneath the iPad to keep it from slipping out... Like that would ever happen!

    Yeah it is in there PRETTY SNUG. Getting an iPad out of one of these is annoying at best.

    When I bought my iPad off off Kijiji I was surprised to learn that the seller included a free official NEW iPad case with it.

    Nice bonus!!!

    I was able to grab some for my friends who wanted them at my campus bookstore. College/University bookstores usually have Apple sections so I suppose most people don't think to check their for their Apple fix. I use a Macally case myself, but I bought my iPad + 2 Apple iPad cases for friends at my University bookstore (both were in stock when every other retailer was sold out).

    I can't imagine there's still a shortage. I was in a Best Buy Saturday and they had a full peg of 36 (and they didn't even carry the iPad).

    I don't as well, cheer up though the Apple case isn't that good comparing some real creative iPad cases.

    They have had them in my local store for months without fail. I go in around once a week or more aswel.

    Camera connection kit took me 2 weeks to get hold of though. But after that they haven't been out of stock as far as I know
