    Hey,

    I have the Smart Cover from apple, and it fits like a glove looks amazing and gives it a nice book like feel and grip when using the device. Take things with a grain of salt that people review, everyone's needs and expectations are different. Get what makes you happy as it is your money; I may get a clear snap on for the back to avoid scratching the aluminum, but for now it's naked and sexy as ever!!! Let me know what you decide.

    Cheers

    I think they are way over priced for what you get, but you should make your own decision.

    I don't know about the Mini Smart Case, but many on here are using the Smart Case for their full sized iPad and liking them. There was a thread a few months ago when they came out and it sounded like a good case. I would have one but already had Smart Cover and a different back (different story there).

    Bought this one at Amazon . Price is good , cover is lightweight & thin. I like it very much as it gives protection to the front & back.

    In the States, I got the Moko from Amazon for $7 it's fine, I have a Zum and a Apple smart cover on an Ipad 2 and love that. I have a custom photo cover on my Iphone 5 from Gelaskins.com, thinking of getting a plain black for the back and a screen protector for Mini now.

    Try a Portenzo Hard Back. The best case ever! Hand made and great quality. Has smart wake function and looks awesome.

    Portenzo cases can be ordered directly from portenzo.com. They are custom made and allow a lot of selections. The hard back is the smallest form factor and does not add too much weight and size to the mini ImageUploadedByTapatalk1357117090.586488.jpg

    Thank you for the info on the Portenzo case. The Brookstone.com case is a little different.

    Tons of back covers out there, but I'd stick with the tried and true rather than buying off brands. I picked up a Caudabe mini shell off of Amazon and it keeps the smart cover on and all that jazz. I'm good to go.
